I think I had Blog flu.
Just think about it.. a guy who posts like there is no tomorrow, suddenly finds it so difficult to get a word edgeways on his blog, for weeks..
Here are some important things that have happened over the last one week..
Some of this shouldnt be announced the way I am announcing it.. especially to near and dear ones.. but who has time ?
First, I am going to be a US Citizen in two weeks!! My interview was over last week and I will have to go to a "swearing in" ceremony soon. Needless to say, this is the subject of many blog posts by itself.. so I will stop here. Lets just say there are reasons for going through this after all these years of indecision..
Next, we sold our house !! This by itself wouldnt be big news, were it not for the fact that we failed in attempts to buy our next house at the same time. The clock is ticking and yours truly is under a lot of pressure to find new quarters for wifey, kids and mother in law, not to mention a father in law who is planning to visit real soon.. It will be a bummer to show him into a two bedroom apartment, instead of thes prawling 4 bedroom house we are used to caling "home" .. Man proposes, bay area house market disposes.
I was sick again and was down for most of last week. That is when I decided to back off from blogger. Got a sudden headache while driving to pick up the toddler from daycare. This was followed by some violent throwing up as soon as I got home. After spending a day at the hospital and undergoing various tests at various departments, they figured that the nausea was triggered by something in my eyes. Apparently there is a viral infection in the eye that makes you extremely sensitive to moving lights and triggers nausea and headaches. I was given some eye drops and was wearing sunglasses at home, work, everywhere.. This led to me being nicknamed "Mr. Hollywood" at work and becoming the target of jokes by everyone at home including the toddler. But the virus ,nausea and sunglasses are all gone and I am happy.
In other news, I spent a few hours yesterday trying to catch up with all my favorite blogs.. Have managed to go alphabetically from Adengappa to Ferrari.. still a lot of catching up to do.. especially at the rate at which some of you blog.. Possibly have to take a day off just to read Visithra aunty's blog !!
In other other news, I went through a mid term exam after many many years !! Didnt do that badly... lets hope the trend continues.
I have a list of things I wanted to write about and havent gotten to any of it. Will start, hopefully tonight...
