I seem to have so little time to do all the things I want to do. Blog more often, for one. Spend even more time at my job, because it continues to be so awesome and I'm like a lover in the early stage of the relationship when you can't get enough and only rarely feel vaguely resentful that the new love's keeping you away from everything else.  

The Guy is here for some time, and he's promptly fallen ill. I spent the last two days at his side, working from home while trying to take care of him, and the fever's still not going away. I have to go to work tomorrow, with a heavy heart. 

But the GuyMom's in town, and should be coming over to look at him. 

The Mom is here too, and has been cooking and helping me take care of the Guy so that I'm much less tired than I would otherwise be. (That's still pretty much.)

We had one great day together, the Guy and the Mom and I. We went to Lonavala and the weather was amazing and we all went out again and had a lovely evening. Yes, I'll put up some pictures. 

Once the Guy is better. 

I'm so used to me being the sickly one and the Guy being always around, always helping, always strong. This is the first time I've seen him so ill. A Guy who's lying quietly in bed instead of making really bad jokes? It's unfamiliar and a bit scary. 

Send good vibes this way, and hope he's soon up and as annoying as ever!

Added on 24 July: The Guy's much better now, thanks for all your good wishes. But I've caught the sickness from him, and haven't been this sick in a long time. See you soon, and I'll post the next chapter of Miki as soon as I can hold the laptop up.

I hope he gets well soon Unmana!! Good patients who do not make a fuss can break our hearts - hope he's back to being annoying soon.
