    Yesterday and today was crazy busy for me with Orion having indifferent health and I ended up running from one hospital to another. I am unable to finish all of the items in my target. I am not sure how long this condition would continue and hence I am going to restart after everything settles down.

    Things are falling apart with no sleep due to both kids and husband getting flu like symptoms and my work related pressure. Getting booster shot tomorrow too. :(

    @Anusha2917 and @NOW

    Don't sweat the bad days. I find this little snippet of a larger quote by Samuel Beckett deeply inspiring*: "Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better."

    When the going gets tough, the tough take time to tend to their physical and emotional needs. We'll be here when you're ready to fail better. : )

    Take care!

    *(And before some pedantic Polly pops in to gotcha-Gauri, I am aware that the full passage is a dark counterpoint to the inspiring sentiment of the quoted snippet. In my mind the quoted idea and Beckett's passage are both profound in different contexts and I am able to appreciate them independent of each other.)

    Was an interesting day in that I could not get my workout in at the regular time. Evening expecting severe weather and abandoned walk twice. Yet, yoga would not come to my rescue. Ended up walking around 9 pm – somewhat a calmer weather and quite liked it!
