This weekend me, Arjan and Narayan drove down to Albuquerque to celebrate Amar Singh’s 3rd birthday and have some relax time. Amar’s parents, Sat Bachan Kaur and Sat Kartar Singh are our good friends and we love to visit with them. We had a great time at the party and then stayed with them for the weekend.
It was great to get away for a couple of days and just have some fun away from our normal environment. I even kept off the computer which is a good thing for me right now. Because of all the blogging (and normal SikhNet work during the day) I am on the computer much more than is normal (too put it lightly). Arjan got on my case pretty bad recently about being on the computer so much. It’s hard finding the right balance. I love this work and see so many positive things, but always struggle with finding enough hours in the day to do it all.
I have been having some physical problems with my knees hurting quite a bit from the pressure on my bottom from all the hours sitting (cutting off circulation). Without going into details…it’s hard lately for me to sit so am trying to get different treatments to help….and maybe a different type of chair. Our bodies can only take so much abuse…and it is just doing it’s thing to warn me. I am pretty knowledgeable in regards to ergonomics and computer related injuries since I had gotten carpal tunnel syndrome in my earlier SikhNet days…but was able to overcome that. I now quite frequently give advice to other computer users to avoid similar problems, however this is a new thing which I have never heard of and caught me by surprise. Anyways…I have gone way off the topic from Amar’s Birthday Party….I just pray that Guruji heals and guides me again so that I can continue to do this work with as much energy as possible (in a balanced way that I can sustain).
