Diwali Again!

This has been the third Diwali since I started writing this blog. Diwali for me has over the years become richer - in the sense- there have been more sweets, sweeter sweets, richer sweets and in larger quantities too and why yes the shopping bonanza.

This year, I was as usual skeptical about being surrounded by such temptations for the fear of gaining back what ever little I had lost by drastically reducing my eating after joining the new job.

The toddler kid was sick through the four days. First it was a bad chest cold and then some kind of a stomach infection that left him refusing food in totality!!! A sick child is usually enough to kill my spirits. And so I did enjoy a fair share of Diwali sweets, without over indulging.

On the shopping front, it was practically non-existent because we are still reeling under the effcts of what building a home does to one's bank balance :) So I happily wore the saree that the MIL had got for me and was done with that.

We however did a good round of temples in the neighbourhood, something that we have not done in a long-long time!!!

Back home, I know I should have started half marathon training again. The Auroville Half is slated for 9th February 2014 and I want to run it :) My runs have been reduced to weekend runs, and the gym has become a distant memory :( I do some home videos when I get time, but surely that is not enough!!!

How are you guys doing?
