Day 145

Today was a very sad day. While driving to office, my mom called and told me that my Grandmom (dad's mom) had passed away. I was almost reaching office and had to drive all way back. While driving i had quite a lot of thoughts in my mind. Due to my unearthly working hours, i never got that much time to meet or talk to my grandmom in the last few years. I was going to visit her during my birthday(as i usually do) but looks like that was never going to happen. I was also thinking about all the time i spent with her as a kid. My grandmother was the first lady in my family to learn how to drive a car. As kids, she would drive us to lots of places, like the zoo, museum etc. It was one of the most memorable moments of my childhood. My mom and her had a lot of difference of opinion about many things, but towards the fag end of her life, Mom and she got very close to each other. I also remember her as a person who was very practical and supported me in quite a lot of decisions of life. Well, here's to my grandmom - May Her soul rest in peace.
In the afternoon, the heat got the better of me, and i guess i must have suffered a minor sunstroke or something and i felt i needed to rest. Had a good 3 hours of sleep. Now i will have some dinner and will go to sleep.
