Wake me up when September ends

... though, to be honest, 'waking up' is not really my problem these days.

My problem is the opposite.

I don't get much sleep... and let's just say my 'little man' has taken over my life is ways I didn't think was possible.

One example: my phone screensaver.

Well, why don't you for yourself:

I know! Umm... well, at least he's cute!

I get by well through the day though- with about six hours of sleep every night, sometimes less [like last night I got three]. Somedays I am nothing short of Superwoman; a tired one maybe- but hey... still!

What can I say?

'Thank goodness for caffeine', perhaps? :)

Pretty Flowers and Breaking Dawns

This morning I woke up to the smell of jasmines....

The jasmines that were brought to us by a friend yesterday...

... a friend we saw after 3 years and caught up well after such a gap, I must say... :).

She had come to see Little Dee.

Such a beautiful fragrance to wake up to.

I have often said waking up at the wee hours in a house that is still sleeping has its perks :)... and sometimes there are happy realizations about how true that is...

... and this is one of those realizations.

Mom Club

I still have not replied to all the emails that needs replying.

I promise to- right after this blogpost; given that the Little Dee does not wake up untimely demanding cuddles/ food/ attention.

I'm not reponsible for my actions anymore.

I now belong to the 'mom club'- and my (more than usual) lack of social skills and etiquette is getting ridiculous! :P

I have a thousand and one emails to reply to...

... and about half an hour till Little Dee is up demanding to be fed... the power of his lungs knows no bounds; sometimes I'm not sure that's a good thing, lol! :P

... hence I thought it makes perfect sense procastrinate and make a blog post instead.

So, here I am! :)

Hi! :)

PS: I'm reading Leo Tolstoy's Ana Karenina again... it is, in my opinion, one of the most thorough pieces of literary art!

Inside and Out

I'm a little moody lately [I'm blaming the lack of sleep and also the fact that I have not been out in sun and fresh air for a while now]... my ever-failing self-control is coming handy so far- just following a few (seemingly simple) mantras: think about neutral stuffs, keep the head as blank as possible, avoid confrontations at all costs, steer all possible unpleasant conversations to a safer ground, make jokes at every possibility- even when you don't feel like it- making someone laugh can be quite rewarding... and keeping my digits crossed that I don't end up saying things that I may regret later- it's getting easier with time and some practice...

Little Dee at 2-months-2-days; he is smiling a lot these days :)

Otherwise life is going on at a rather predictable fashion- devoting all my time to the Little Monster. I guess the universe inside my head has been pretty uneventful too [or that I'm trying HARD to keep it that way].

I guess that explains the situation of my blogposts (or therelackof rather)...

... and this is one of the things I wish weren't so.
