A state of worry: Texas in Nov 2023

Work takes me to Texas every month. It’s getting more difficult lately because of the late stage of pregnancy of TH. Her third trimester is challenging and already incurred 3-day hospital stay. I am going out and every moment I am thinking about her and NM. How she is going to manage her health without getting overworked with Nehaan’s meals, tantrums and school drop off and pickup? It’s a constant state of worry. I am taking this with moment by moment spell, just like test cricket session. In a cricket test match, the players plays for five days and each day they have three sessions. The players, specially batsmen, are trained to play it session-by-session. It helps to compartmentalize goals in short period of time and focus on getting things done in short period of time. I am trying to implement this while I will be gone and will be at Texas. I am taking it as a 4hr interval and hopefully we will be okay for next 18 sessions at home (6 sessions per day* 3 days= 18 sessions).

Life.
