A little teet-a-teet on Deepavali!

So, its about 1 and I'm currently seated in my plush sofa in front of the tv. Dad is watching Vaanam and mum is busy decorating the house with flowers. Since I have nothing much to do (or chooses not to have anything to do), I decided to blog.
Last night as I offered prayers for my late grandma and grandpa, I couldn't help but think of how life would be different if they were still around. True. I never really knew them. But, then again, maybe my extended family would not have broken off if they were still around. I mean, I would have had a houseful of attais, mamas, chitepa, periyapa, chiti, cinema, perima, and so on. Maybe life would be so much more colourful. But then again, knowing how they are like, maybe this silent life is far better off. Who knows? Do i miss my extended family? Nope. I mean, I have relatives that care. And why bother about those who left right? To think of it, maybe that's why I am so afraid of losing people in my life. I forgive friends easily and I take the initiative to keep in touch with people and I never let people go, no matter how much I know I should. Maybe watching people leave made me have this constant fear that people I love will leave me one day too. Anyway, my policy is to not get involved in family politics. So, lets not even go there. Anyway, as I said I do wish my grandparents were still around. My dad's parents passed away when I was in primary school and my mum'm parents left us when I was still a toddler. So, I don't have much memories of them. And anytime anyone talk about their grandparents, I always listen with interest. It's funny how people complain about their grandmas n grandpas that always nag. I guess it's a thing I'll never have in my life. But sure enough, I do hope that the idiot I marry later on will have a huge extended family. A lot of people. A lot! I would love to have all those people to talk to, to socialise with. It will be fun!
Anyway, enough of such a long post. I'm off to go feed my two kids. I swear Dino can be such a manja case when it comes to eating. He only eats if I feed him. Not that I'm complaining. You know how much I love to spoil them! Anyway, have a good day people!
