A Cup of Chai Tea Anyone?

I have much to say but the superstitious side of me won't let me type it out on my keyboard...I have tried but it always stops me.

There is much going on...I want to share it but I don't want to jinx it (anyone see that "How I met Your Mother" episode? If you did you know what I am talking about it...if you didn't well don't tell me there isn't such a thing as jinxes...o.k? O.k. ;)

One day soon though, I hope we can all sit down and have a cup of tea together, even if it is virtually, and I will divulge all....I promise...I am hoping to be able to do that sooner, rather than later....oooooh I hope I haven't said too much!


P.S. excuse the hair - I am trying to grow it out so it will be easier to manage with a wee one and this is a post work-out do - it goes curly the minute any kind of moisture hits it aka sweat.

P.P. S I am supposed to tell you I am talking to my sis-in-law while I write this - she says "Hi".

June said...

In order to not jinx anything, all I am going to say is - don't grow out your hair. Seriously. I did that too, thinking it would be easier, and 2 months after the munchkin came home I chopped it all off again.

ps - hi Rana's sister in law. ;)

passmycoffee said...

Hey! Its great to "see" you again! I wait in anticipation of your news! I'm sending positive thoughts your way.

Kristen and Dave said...

CinnamonOpus said...

Ooooooh, now THIS is going to make me nuts with anticipation!

*begins blog stalking*
I wonder, should I be getting any packages ready for the post office?

tobink said...

Oh, I hope the divulging will have something to do with "manag[ing] a wee one".

...

Fingers crossed that it's good news(finger-crossing can't jinx things, right?).

Oh, and can my cup of hot beverage be a skinny vanilla latte instead?

Ricki said...

I can be ok with secrets, as long as they're the good kind. This sounds like a very good kind!

Sending big hugs from Calgary!

Tammy said...

Oh, I am so glad you're back. I have been wondering and worrying about you. Ok, I'm so intrigued...I sure hope it is what I think/hope it is! :)

I'd love a cup of virtual chai tea with you any day.

Cheers!

Eek! I've been waiting to hear some news from you. Now I'm in complete suspense and will check your blog even more than I already am (which is a lot).

Hoping for some VERY good news.

And that mug that you are drinking out of is AMAZING. I want one! And the chai looks delish.

Ramona said...

Just a thought about the growing your hair out- I wished mine was short once we got to Ethiopia- we had a few too many hitchhikers in my kid's hair....and I was so paranoid of getting some myself...

It's so great to hear some 'news' from you Rana. I won't jinx it by saying what kind of news we are all hoping for! That tea looks awesome. Where are you eating?

Ranavan said...

Cheryl - we are at a little place called Cafe Sola - it is a really great little organic restaurant/coffee house - they make everything in-house from fresh ingredients!

I am not ready to post about it even on a password protected post just yet - I really don't want to jinx anything but Julie I will call you to chat ;)

Sherri said...
