It’s been a mad year so far. And crazy people that we are, we’re adding to the mix.
2 weeks after the launch of GameZen, and 16 months after the birth of Goosh, I’m off to IIMB for a 6 week course – the one they call MPWE.
I’m heartbroken. A bundle of nerves. Exhausted. And wondering how my 2 boys will manage without me for 6 weeks. How will Goosh react w/o Mommy … and how will HD handle GameZen alone? Yes, my mom’s come over and will be at home with Goosh. And yes, I was anyways working full time and not at home all that much. But still….
My office.. I know they’ll manage without me. There’s always a replacement. And I’m going on 6 weeks leave w/o pay..
Guilty like crazy.
And missing my baby more than I can say.
Got that lump in my throat, a pounding in my heart. A mish mash of feelings I cant express.
This is so much worse that leaving home for hostel the first time around. Back in 1996, barely 18, I left home and family for 5 yrs of hostel life at IITB. Butterflies in my stomach, all eager to explore the world.
This time around, I’ve got butterflies in my stomach. Feeling guilty about those that I leave behind…
