Missed a Sunday post after a long time. Travelled to Nellore for the Sankranthi festival last week. Returned back on Monday and it turned out to be a very hectic week. We did not make it any easier for each other either with me insisting on doing a lot of cooking before we left for our respective offices.
The week ended with the Mrs getting angry and frustrated that I was not spending any peaceful time with her. We had a fight yesterday which lead to her getting teary eyed and me getting angry and shouting some more. We did sit down later and have a good chat and cleared things up.
Upon reflection, I realized that she was right when she said that I was not spending quality time with her. She has never lived away from home in her life and these early days away from her parents are difficult for her. Most days she feels lonely at home after work. I have been returning very late from the office these days and I usually have no energy left to talk. Having said that, I need to be more understanding and try a little harder. Now that I know what I am doing wrong, I will try to do better in the coming weeks.
If there are things at home that I don’t like, I should either change them or keep my mouth shut. In fairness, the Mrs has been working very hard to keep up with me. I need to slow down a little to match her pace. I need to give her some credit and appreciate what she does some more. Those are my learning from these last couple of weeks.
Visited another doctor yesterday for my dick problem. He suggested that circumcision is necessary. He also mentioned that this procedure is usually not covered by insurance and my medical expenses bill can run to the tune of about 20K. I have planned the procedure for next week. I will work the next couple of days to get the pre authorization from the insurance. It will be good if I can get the authorization done.
