O is for Ouch!

This post should ideally be part of the A to Z Challenge. But considering the fact that I've missed - damn! - five days in a row now, I'm not sure I should bother. 

This is what happens when life turns hectic on you. You make all sorts of plans, and then suddenly you have no time to touch a computer, much less spend enough time to write a single word. And the Blogger app on my phone somehow refuses to work on GPRS. 

Last week (including the weekend) was full of travel, travel, travel. There was a period of forty-eight hours where I spent more time in a moving vehicle (plane, train, car, auto - you name it) than stationary. But I survived.

I arrived back in Bangalore on Tuesday morning, and joined a new job. Yes, THAT happened. Long story.

And we also have a friend of mine staying over for a five-day trip. She is heading back to Chennai on Sunday, but we're planning a brief and hectic trip to Wayanad this weekend before she leaves. 

I think I've said this here before, but 2013 is turning out to be extremely travel-heavy. I've been told that the new job will require me to travel as well. But not for some time, I hope. Because I'm at a point where if I step into a plane/train/bus in the next month, it will be way too soon. 

Yes, that's me, self-proclaimed travel-lover, saying that. 

But back to the A to Z Challenge. The travel plans mean more breaks in the schedule. But I'm hoping some back-posting and scheduling will help me tide over the crisis. :(

I certainly understand the struggle of traveling! I was out of town last weekend, too, and had a hard time getting my posts up correctly. My drafts kept going up on previous days, so I'd have to delete them and repost them. It was frustrating.

Congrats on the job and good luck with A to Z!
