I’m in a state of euphoric peace tonight, and this feeling has built up since this evening. Very unlike a couple of days back when, right from the moment I woke up, I had a strange, uneasy anxiety taking over my consciousness. All through that day, I had a persistent headache and a nagging feeling that something bad was about to happen. Thankfully, no such ill event came to light, at least, not as far as I know. The events that have taken place all through today, however, have beautifully built up a feeling of wellness within me—about my self and people and circumstances (that are soon to unfold) around all of us. Caution: the following text may be extremely boring, please proceed at your own risk.
This morning, I drove the car for the first time during peak traffic hours, dropped my mom off at a bottleneck junction, and dropped my hubby for an interview before reaching office.
When it was time, we went to the Sub-registrar’s office to register the property, which we recently chose, in our name. We also read through the important sections of the Sale Agreement before signing it off.
Then, I did something I wanted to do since a long time—drop my hubby to his office! On the way back, I was hungry and tempted to eat a pizza, so, for the first time in my life, I ordered a take-away, got into my car and gulped one whole personal pan pizza within minutes, alone, without a sip of any drink that normally accompanies such a meal! Today was also the first time I used the 5th gear in my car ;-)
The day at work was also unusually pleasant… with quite a few confusions that I clarified quickly, and got a compliment for, from my work manager in the US!
It was also today, that after a gap of months, I had a fun-filled, but serious chat with my closest pal. He also happened to introduce me to this kickass music site.
Then came the get-together with old girl friends, one of whom just returned after a long stay in the US, and the other who’s about to fly there for a short-term work assignment. We ended up exchanging gyaan about traveling to the US, and then some girly gossip about the whole in-laws concept :D
I spent quite some time playing one of my favorite word games, which I thoroughly enjoyed, since I got to play it after a gap of three whole months!!
That done, I left for home after 10:00 pm and reached home within 25 minutes (desk-to-door)! Firstly, there was less traffic, and secondly, this time, I felt so much at home in my car… as if I’ve been driving it since forever!! There was a certain comfort level that I achieved with my car today, which I cannot explain in words.
Mum made my favorite dish for dinner, and I happily gorged on it while catching up with my hubby about the rest of the day that we spent away from each other. Then a bit of TV—watched the end of Die Hard 1, and was glad to notice that the primary villain was none other than Alan Rickman, who played Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movies. I love this guy in that role—can’t imagine Severus Snape to be anyone else! That done, I spent about a couple of hours chatting up with my mum about the things that matter to her and to me. I think I owe her this time.
And all through this, the feeling of things-falling-in-place grew to such an overwhelming level, that I got too restless to sleep. I had to write down these things to get the excessive euphoria out of my system before it ruins my sleep!! Now that I have done so, I pray and hope that my body and brain get the rest they deserve. Adios!
