Euro Cup/Vacation/Wimbledon/Blogs/and probably more!

The past few weeks have been hectic...I cannot describe how hectic...but those who have been with me through it will acknowledge it too...anyways thanks for those who stood by us and helped us through tough and hectic weeks...

I don't want to talk about stuff that are not fun in my blogs...at least not anymore...I get tired of it...so I would like to use this place to talk about simple things and joys of life...hahaha...anyways...We all saw Spain winning Euro against Germany...good deal...I am happy because I like Rafa who is from Spain and hence he supports Spail ergo I supported Spain...no other special reasons...

So by now you would have guessed whom I was rooting for the Wimbledon Finals...but we will talk about that later...Giri and I decided to go to NC to spend the 4th of July with my brothers and their family. It was Sanjana's first trip away from home in a flight...wahhhhhhh...I was so tensed that I could not sleep Tuesday night...that plus other reasons...anyways with hardly any sleep Giri and I boarded the flight only to realize that we were not sitting together...dang and double dang...but thankfully Sanj played about 20 mins and then slept till 20 mins before landing...and she was playing the next leg which was just 35 mins anyways...

My entire family was excited to meet Sanj...she was the center of attention...and she played it cool chewing all her cousins toys that were put in front of her. My neice Pradhu whom I am meeting after a year is soooooooooo cute...I cannot even describe...Then we also met my other neice Zeal and Nephew Advith...whom I am seeing after 3 years...are all so grown up and so cute...gosh I can go on and on...I also went to the beach after 3 years too...altogether it was fun...and Sanjana made it easy for us too...

Saw women's tennis finals in NC...it was not bad...not interesting though...we got back to Dallas on Sunday the 6th and got to see the finals that our friends had kindly DVR-ed for us...we were like half hour behind the game...thanks to rain delay and all that we caught up. I could not see the entire game because I was really tired from previous night and I went to sleep with Babbi so that I can also get some rest. Obviously my favorite won...ya...another Spanish victory...what can I say...Vamos Rafa!

On a milestone note...Sanjana is now constantly babbling, crawling like crazy but also trying to stand without support...she can already stand. She recognizes me by sight and by voice and tries to cling to me around new people...but after an initial observation time of 2 hours she is all over the place and makes friends with people...

My mother-in-law is back in town to take care of her son...and hence she will also take care of Sanjana...which means no more daycare for her for another 5 months...probably a few quick visits in between to Anitha, her favorite baby sitter but hopefully nothing long time...I have to thank Anitha for being the best babysitter ever. She has taken such good care of Sanjana that I cannot do anything to repay her kindness. People like her only should do babysitting, the rest who do it for money are nothing short of being daylight robbers. I am generally angry at people like that...sorry...but Anitha you ROCK!!!

I can go on ranting but I think I don't want to make my blog any longer than it is now...so y'all take care and have a great week ahead...

Love
