The Long Wait

Muir Woods

I am officially tired of being pregnant now.

Crib, carseat, baby clothes, diapers and wipes are in the house.

Grandparents have arrived. They are over jetlag. They know the bus route to the hospital, Varun’s preschool and even Whole Foods.

Baby is full term – we are at 38 weeks for crying out loud. Varun was already born by this time. And at home.

The wait and this extreme sleepiness is driving me crazy. I mean I sleep all day and night as if I have already been through labor and have a baby keeping me up.

It sucks.

In the meantime, we drove to Half Moon Bay and Muir Woods over the weekend.

Had a lovely time over meat and cheese platter and wine flights at Amelie. Hung out with friends.Even had a spicy shrimp curry from Gajalee.

Don’t have the energy to detail out the trip details yet, but will one day.

Just wanted to chime in and say, sorry about the lack of regular posting. Can only imagine blog being neglected for a while.

Will probably post once a week going forward – at least for the next couple of months while we wait for the  baby and then bond with him. Hopefully he will be a better sleeper than Varun and let us get back to our routine quickly.

Thanks for understanding and hanging around. And for reading me!

  1. Hi R,
    Greetings from the windy city.
    Good luck with everything. Good to have family around. This is the time for some reflection, which can be done by the following (just a suggestion):
    Recite with concentration:
    Hanuman Chalisa Video (9min.) by renowned Shmt. MS Subba Lakshmi

    The other important prayer to learn to recite is Vishnu Sahasranamam (grateful to Mr. Shivkumar). Details below
    PLEASE DOWNLOAD FILES ON TO YOUR LAPTOP AND LISTEN.
