Getting off the wagon

Remember the old Seinfeld episode about the intervention? Trying to get someone "off the wagon"? The gang cannot decide if the alcoholism is off the wagon or quitting is? Something similar has happened to me. I cannot say whether I was addicted to blogging during our Iowa days or I am now addicted to "not blogging" (If there is such a term). Since I love to write, I am going to call it the latter and try to get sober by blogging (and therefore get "off" the wagon).

It's not so tough to write an email a day about the state of affairs in my life. Especially since it's pretty much different every day. I don't quite get much time to write an email during the work hours (I don't even get time to check GMail.. Can you believe it?) But I am going to try and write a little more probably before heading out for the day. I also get the question in my mind whether blogging from work is ethically valid. But I shall at least try.

News from here is that we are doing well in Pune. I don't know if I told any of you personally but we have bought a house and are now busy trying to get it furnished.. It is still some distance from being completely constructed, so we still have some time. The builder has said it will be mid-December that he will have it ready, but since this is India, we are going with the expectation of March-April. In short we still have some time. But a new house is a new house, so there's general excitement in our life.

Work is going well too.. Have got a visa now to come and go to the US for the next 10 years. There's a plan to come there in mid-January, but its not too definite. It could get quite possibly postponed to the end of May. As you can tell from my lack of blogging over the past 3 months, it is also quite hectic and takes a lot out of me.

Anyway, this sounds more like a letter than a blog, but a confession is the first step towards getting sober according to the AA. Hopefully I shall be a bit more prolific in writing.

Wish me luck.

Sorry World

I just counted. It's been 3 months since I last posted anything on this blog.

Let's just say we've been awfully busy..

It'll not happen again.
