Busy Times

Busy, doesn’t fully describe the Kumar Household! With the boys in school, Ashish taking on a new role at UHG and my photography business we’ve been on quite a ride lately! All positive things…but not much “down time.” It doesn’t look as though we will have any down time soon either with the holidays approaching…and my entry back in school for communications this January (I have assignments due prior to my first day of class.) Though it was a hard decision, I’m really embracing my decision to resign as the Chair of the Otsego Park and Recreation Commission now…there is only so many hours in a day.

Let me say that my birthday was amazing this year as I was able to celebrate throughout the month. My friend J took me “downtown” to a Mexican place. YUM. My friend S took me to French Meadows. YUM. My friend A got sick, so we will have to re-schedule our time together. The cards and birthday wishes were exceptionally sweet this year. It’s also SO NICE to be surrounded with real, intelligent, fun and caring friends. After living here for almost 5 years, God as helped me sort out the weeds from the flowers in the garden. Thank You for blessing my garden with colors of joy, hope and such beautiful “local” friendships. I have become so found of MB, JH, LC, JG and SK…right in my own backyard. How lucky am I?! VERY.

Today Nishad was invited to a Princess Birthday Party complete with it’s own castle and “ball.” It was cute to see all the kids from his class playing and celebrating his friend’s milestone. On Monday I’m having breakfast with MB at the Original Pancake House- love their crepes (they have a location in Oak Park…so it reminds me of Chicagoland). We’re excited to hang out Tuesday after school with SK and her son at Border’s for a little picnic style lunch and books. That night I’m attending a parent night at school. Friday of the same week, I’m serving up a Thanksgiving feast with my Minnesota bestie JH at Nishad’s school. So excited!
