Family : We are really having lots of fun with Myra. After she came to our life, there is so much laughter and fun at home, we could have ever imagined. She has filled our lives with so much of joy. Every day, she has her own unique way of making us laugh.
Home : We moved to California and downsized our home. Got rid of dining table, Dresser and Ikea drawer chest and lots and lots of stuffs. After moving here, for few months, it was real good, when we were not buying new stuffs. But now, I have started shopping again in full force. Well, at the end of the year, have started organizing the home. Just bought IKEA bookcase. And arranged it today. Yippee !!!
Travel : Moved to California and visited: San Francisco Golden Gate, Yosemite National Park, 17th Mile Drive, Children’s Discovery Museum.
Finances : Just at the end of the year, started taking care of the budget using an app “Every Dollar”
Eating out– Yepp.. this year we ate a lot outside. Especially in Bay Area, Indian food joints are so nearby. We can have samosas every week, and gur-jalebis. Nice south-indian food joints are so near. We do regular takeaways from Chipotle, Falafel joint. Next year, I definitely want to goto Taco Bell.
Hobbies : Reading and listening about Ayurveda and Rajiv Dixit. Getting more involved in Pari’s studies. And focusing more on Home Management.
Health : Have to lose weight. Not much progress.
Books: Right now, I am not reading any books. But reading about articles in Ayurveda, Financial Planning.
Pari : Her new school in California is good. Initially, I took it very casually, and later I realized she really needs to work on her studies- maths, handwriting and spelling. She enrolled on swimming classes- yes finally she is swimming. No piano classes are going on. She also went for tennnis class, which she liked a lot.The best thing that happened was- she got into coding class. She knows code.org, scratch, and robotics programming. We took her to Microsoft Minecraft classes. And she liked it.
Mood : Well, lots of ups and downs, Myra tests my patience.
Myra: She is eating well, started grass-milk. She still doesn’t drink milk from bottle. She will not eat even one bite, when she is not in a mood. Recently got her weaned from bf.
