GoodBye 2013, Welcome 2014

We are standing in the last day of this year. If i look back, this year (like any other year) was filled with lots of fun and challenges, managing to spend quality time at work and with kids. Yet another year filled with running around the kids, handling their day-to-day activities, homework, exam, assessments, projects, driver job for their weekend extra curricular classes, tuition, shopping, dining, etc.,

We did 2 trips in 2013. One in May (to Chikmagalur) and another in Nov (to masinangudi). Post about Masinagudi trip is still in draft. Will post it soon.

All major festivals (Diwali, Pongal) and long vacations were celebrated in home town in Pondicherry.

There were lots of fights (between the kids and between me and them), emotional imbalance, convincing, consoling, and there were lots of regrets, retrospection and self-realization from my girls (signs of them growing up) and tons and tons of temper tantrums from our little master. This too shall pass.

Having said this, I look forward to another similar and challenging year ahead. Kids are participating in the new year celebration in our apartment and they are singing a Happy New Year Song. Few verses from that song is below.

Happy Happy New Year

Another reason to rejoice is here

52 weeks to make your heart sing

And see what four new seasons will bring.

Happy Happy New Year

Tossout bad memories by their ear

Gather up new ones in a bouquet

Ring out the old, Ring in a new day.

Happy Happy New Year

Another opportunity is here.

To just believe in what we can be

And see our dreams become reality.
