Keeping Promises :)


When the last two posts this month, on this blog came to be, they were both spontaneous (only the posting part though), one of them automatically generated, in Statistics for the blog, and the other a long delayed acknowledgement of honours received. That is when I took a look at the sidebar and realized that both 1 and 8 January (when these were posted) were Sundays, and somewhere in the recesses of the consciousness, I heard a promise from a stray voice, I’ll make it a point to post on Sundays 🙂 I guess that would be one of my alter egos, who likes the order and logic and meticulousness of numbers, and periodicity. I just looked again, now,  and that alter-ego prodded. So I thought it would be ok, this once, to do something unbeknown to me, and that is keeping a promise to myself 😆 !!

Today, I find myself surprisingly staying close to more promises.  I’m not sure though, if I like it yet. It doesn’t feel right somehow 😛 !!!

I told myself I would not be weepy and sentimental and maudlin when it was time for a final hug and a smacking kiss for the second born as he takes off for the Gelf, after having him all to myself for the past three months. I wasn’t. Pakka Promise. If I were, would write this? Lol! You know, I’m actually patting myself on my back, for that :D. But don’t ask me how I’m going to get through the rest of today, when I pry myself away from here, and start knocking hollowly about the house. 😐

I told myself I’d get serious work done in school, and for a change I did! I’m wading through lessons I would have dawdled over, getting notes completed, and actually making kids feel better by not insisting on some things I’m a stickler for 😆 ! Like postponing a speech they have to give, giving them back their PT periods, which, in a fit of sheer exasperation I had threatened to make my own 😛 ! What the heck is happening to me, I’m wondering!

2012 is probably The End, else I might not be doing all this. 😀 Or maybe I matter to me? Or maybe, my guardian angel is actually prompting me and getting results. 😀 Whatever it be, I’m counting my blessings too, and am glad to have been blessed!

I also told myself I’d write shorter posts. Last count, it’s under 420 😀 Yayyy!

  10. A post every Sunday? good good 🙂
    I think I am the only Mom who is happy to have her birds out of the nest. Seriously! 😉 Instead I now have Luci and they can come and visit me. It couldn’t get better 😛 😉


    • Shail, so far so good 🙂
      Well, since i had the little one around for three months at a stretch, initially it felt hollow. Now I’ve bounced back, and like you, have my other babies, and wait for them to visit. And my time is MINE 😀 Yeah, it’s getting better! 🙂

  12. What did they do to make you threaten them to take away PT?

    Did anyone go Haaaawwwwwww when you said that?


    • Ah. Threats like taking away the PT period are just that … threats 😀 But yes, they do believe it, when it comes from me, because occasionally some of them need to get their own selves in order. So the whole class goes anyway for PT, but sometimes some repeatedly erring gangstas …LOL… who are given that long long rope to hang themselves, do get a part of their period off, and they spendit with me 😀 But it’s ok, coz I compensate 🙂
      And they all go more than Hawwwww… collective groans more like 😀


Thank you for reading. Do stop a while and write in too... :)
