Friends, I am back from my India trip. It looks like IL has grown quite a bit in the last 2 months that I was away. Kudos to all the members! About myself, I had a wonderful time in India. Now, I am feeling quite sad to have come back after leaving my parents. The first day we got back was quite hard, coming back to the empty home. I have recovered from the jetlag, but getting back to schedule with my job, sons school, cleaning, cooking seems such an uphill task. Planning to have another child soon, I don't know how I am going to do it, when I have hard time managing one. I guess the main problem is that I am missing my parents such a lot. They used to visit us here often in the past, so I did not feel much. Now they are getting older and I realize it may not be practical for them to be here every year. I want to go back and settle down in the village where my parents live, but I don't know how practical it is. Hope this is just a passing phase and I feel myself in the next few days. love to all my old friends and welcome to all the new members! Mythili.
