Letting go of things is the toughest task, a few of her books set aside to give away to her cousins.. One thing I am gong to miss going back to India is books. I feel too stressed to even think of leaving behind our 1st home together..
Went grocery shopping in the evening and it always a pleasure to listen to old songs on the drive, the same list for the last 10 years, in between we switched to new ones but evenually fall back into the old track :)

Had a promotional card from CPK and as usual no mood to cook, so we get a take out.. our usual me the Crunchy Thai Salad, spicy buffalo cauliflower and two in a bowl for OA and Curly mac for the kiddo...
I had been a bit busy the whole day and when I check the news there is this floor test already... another all nighter for the politically crazy me..
well, News is reigning supreme at home these past 10 days at home...
The child has been performing at TAWCT events from the time we moved to this part of US. I am not a big fan of what goes behind these shows, those dress hunts, the parent egos, the practice sessions, the time juggling and finally the day of the event is another story altogether..
But all said and done, the child likes being on stage, she loves to dance, so there we go.. The winter break begins and so do the practice sessions and there I go checking out what might be the possible costume on stage not just for the kid but for everyone else too :).
The kid is almost a black belt candidate now, a life skill that I strongly believe a child should have irrespective of the gender. Is it beneficial, yes, it keeps her fit, her reflexes are better and sharper, I would prefer a more serious and one-on-one approach but this is the best the city has to offer in terms of taekwondo, so!
