OMG!! I had an insanely busy day yesterday, Tuesday night I realized Wed was Saraswati Pooja, I scrambled to get a portion of the food cooked early morning and make the arrangements, the all employee meeting was in the morning, I got to work 15 minutes late.
I had a lunch date with a friend at Noon, that was set up a month ago, I didnt know was on Saraswati Pooja, ended up having a coke and chatting with her
Parent Teacher conference was at 4:00 PM, i had marked my calendar for 4:20, so the 2nd grade teacher rushed through it from 4:20 to 4:30
I had signed up to volunteer at the school from 6-8 PM selling "spirit wear" (tee shirts with school logo) also without realizing its a festival day, I wrote to the PTA parent and asked her if I could move it up, so I could do it from 4:30-6:30 and did that until 6:30
Flew home, finished making kheer and vada and rest of the meal, prayed, offered, a couple friends came by, we ate and wound up for the night.
Its hard to be a religious Iyer in America I am telling you... sigh!!!
that's exactly what I suspected that u will be tied up between kids and Pooja. I was running around like that yesterday night. Did Pooja and prayer with kids at 9pm
So true - difficult to keep up with daily lives and also take care of religious stuff here. Or we should plan to take off during the religious holidays to keep our sanity !!!
Amidst all this, you have a mahakaviyam in making ... Kudos to you.
Take a breather during weekend.
