Three weeks ago, my mother-in-law passed away. She was a brave woman, as my father used to say, who had been fighting cancer for more than ten years. Towards the end however, her cancer had spread too far. My husband had already been in India for two weeks when she passed away. I had been planning to join him a little later, believing that she was getting better. But that wasn't meant to be, so to my regret, I never got to see her before she moved on. Rest in Peace, Ma.
It has been quite busy since then. My whole trip itself was spread across just a week, of which about 80 hours involved back-breaking travel between the countries. I have been terribly sick for about two weeks since, and am only just coming out of the woods. All in all, I'm glad to be feeling much better now, but I have a lot of catching up (everywhere) to do.
There is also another very time-consuming activity that the husband and I have been keeping busy with most evenings over the past week - since nothing is decided on this yet, I'll hold off talking about it until then (hard as that is). But that said activity has been keeping me away from my books as well, so really, I haven't been reading much and I keep hoping that someday I'll slip back into my non-existent routine.
What have I missed in the blogosphere? It's time for another 'Mark all as Read' but hopefully, things won't be as hectic for a while now. (Touchwood!)
