Bad news. Good news

Bad News :-

A dashed unhappy thing has occurred with me.

The office where I work has this weird policy of limiting internet usage .So we are all bound by a certain amount of data we can download in a given fiscal month. The current fiscal month is for 42 days and the download limit is 1 GB.
And I have overshot the limit 😦

The rotten part is that I came to know of this policy after I crossed the limit.
Seriously, these people should keep some induction programme for contract employees. At least let us know the damned rules before they are slapped on us!!

Anyhow, the crux of the matter is that I cannot access internet from office anymore. Every MB of download (over the specified limit) will be deducted from my pay.Drat!!!

This means that I cannot even access my regular office mails!! How cheap!!

Till of 21st of this month, blogging will be slow, people. Apologies from theΒ  remotest depth of my heart!

I’ll be able to blog only after coming back home , IF I have the energy to (after making the kid’s bed, feeding them, playing with them, laying out dinner for folks at home, making the kids sleep, having dinner, making the BF’s bed, keeping the washed laundry in the cupboard, picking up a zillion toys left on the floor, sterilizing the milk bottles, boiling water for the twin’s nightly feed, having dinner, reading the newspaper , laying out the food for the BF when he gets back home, wrapping up after he has finished, washing lunch boxes, clearing up the sink, cleaning the kitchen platform and finally making sure that all doors and windows are locked).

Do keep visiting, albeit only to check on me …..I might just feel guilty enough to sacrifice a few minutes of sleep for that one post. I need your encouragement to go on. You KNOW I do!!!!

Good News :-

Ahhh, where do I begin?? The big sister (aapa) is expecting her second kid any second now (the ‘any second’ part has been going on for the last 2 weeks. No results yet. We still expect her to deliver any second now!!)

And visiting her will be Mom, Dad , Bags and the MUNCH-A-LICIOUS Baby SA!!! Oooh!! How I could simply gobble down that kid and NOT even let out a burp!!!

Things are gonna get pretty rosy in the next few weeks. Am soooo looking forward to the family being together again πŸ™‚ . Bro couldn’t make it this time and he’ll be sorely missed. So would bhabhi and baby M. But I guess we three daughters are enough to keep the parents busy!!

You know, Dad and Mom are a gem! They are, by far , the MOST complicated couple EVER!! Yet, they are so in sync when it comes to their children!! Even now, they don’t mind shuttling between Pune-B’lore every time any one of their daughter needs them. 2008 was for me, 2009 for Bags and now, 2010 for Aapa. We daughters have been keeping the parents awfully busy with grandkids. And oh, not to forget, 2008 began with the arrival of Baby M. So in the last 2 years time (Jan 2008 to Jan 2010), Mom has looked after 4 grandkids and is now coming here for the fifth!!

Oh Mom!! Where do you get the stamina for all this??

Counting the days till they all are here …. πŸ™‚

Ooooh!! What fun we’re gonna have πŸ˜€ !!!
