Thank you 2010

What a year 2010 has been
Found out I was pregnant ( yay)
Brand new mommy to a baby girl ( the best ever)
Totally pampered by the husband ( thats something ain't it?)
Parents visit ( complete rest for me)
In laws to visit ( sounds good)
Crazy shopping for the little one ( do I need to say anything about shopping?)

Thank you 2010, welcome 2011.

Ilayaraja's melodies playing in the background
lights off
sleeping on TH's hand
2 duets

I am one happy soul

Bursting soon

Starting the day with a glass of whole milk loaded with almonds and pista and elaichi
Sumptuous breakfast of idlis and dosas and chappathis
A soup or juice inbetween
Sometimes buttermilk
Piping hot lunch served right at my place
Accompaniments of snacks from India
Oh did I miss the fruits?
Again fresh hot dinner at the family dining table
ending it all with a warm glass of milk ...

I think am going to burst anytime soon.

Food, goodies and more

Yay! It feels just so nice to say that I can
wake up anytime and not bother about cooking a meal
eat just my favourite food
sit and talk on and on about my relatives
get upto date news about friends and family back in India
still sleep on appa's lap and ask amma to pat me to sleep

oops..did I already give it away?Appa, amma will be here tomorrow..cant wait for the fun, food , goodies and all the vetti talk.

Bulb moment

Tv on, and am busy cooking in the kitchen.The mobile phone rings and I rush to pick it up amidst the roti dough in hands..

only to realise that the ringtone sound was from the tv..

what a bulb moment!

What would be the reaction when you think you spotted a dollar bill on the walkpath amidst the grass, get super excited and scream" hey, I found a dollar, thats mine"..and as you pick it up in your hands, you see its just a piece of trash?

1.You give a sheepish smile?
2.You are thoroughly embarassed, and say oh it happens to everyone
3.You turn around to see how many people are looking at you?
4.You call names at the unknown person who trashed the pathway?

The craziness quotinet

Me: Why dont we make an India trip this year? Its been a little more than 2 years since you went.

TH:What?Thats not a reason to make India trip about a Rajinikanth movie getting released, it would make sense to go to India

Me: dont know whether to laugh or cry

When you are a novice

car driver...
1.You have the seats as forward as possible for the fear of not being able to reach the brakes
2.You donot turn on the music or th radio for fear of concentration getting diverted
3.The moon roof is not opened, nor is the a/c turned on -sounds like a luxury for a beginner
4.You double and triple check the sides before changing lanes
5.You keep looking at the side and rear view mirrors so often than what is actually recommended in the drivers license booklet
6.You start the car only after praying hard
7.You try and park the car in those assigned spaces which are in far end of the store and normally people dont prefer to park there
8.You get down and walk around the car to see if you have parked the car within the lines.
9.You come back home and call TH to tell him what a feat you have achieved and that the car is indeed safe
10.You blog about it, call your friends and brag about your achievement(?)

Drama queen

Friend to me : What, you and TH share the same birthday?
Me: yes ( evil grin at evoking a total unbelievable look)

Cousin to me: Can that even happen? you and TH being born on the same day?
Me: Yes, it does. ( double evil grin at the cousin's surprise look)

Writing it on my blog- priceless
* walks away humming happy bday to us, happy bday to us

achieved!An unplanned call to TH asking if I can drive the car to the local grocery store.He immediately says Yes..I insist -think well before you give the nod.He says nono, am sure, go ahead.I say again- new car, an inexperienced driver, are you really fine with me driving?All he says is be cool.
And thus, I ventured all alone in the new car to the local grocery store.Reaching home in an hour, I left an email to TH saying" reached home safe with the car".

The way to go

Almost a year ago

Me: How do I look in the new dress?
TH:You look nice.
Me:Do I look a little plump from this angle?What do you think?Little did he know what he was getting into
TH:Hmm..ya I guess a little

That was the end of it for TH.He had to sleep facing the wall,eat at restaurants.

Fast forward to a day ago

As we were getting ready to goto a friend's place,
Me:How do I look?
TH:Ya, you look great ( nice to great..thats a nice change)
Me:I think I have gained a lot of weight no?
TH:What? dont be look just fine.(the way to go dude, you got it!)

How to make the most of a IPL telecast?

Sleep with your laptop next to you to wake up on time
Morning abltuions can wait
And if they cant wait- carry the laptop to the bathroom
Dressing up done in front of the laptop and not infront of the mirror
Breakfast and lunch are all packed to go
You dont even realise if you are wearing the same colour socks
Irrespective of getting all ready, you leave only when theres a commercial break

Cricket does make you do crazy things

Just when I thought

-everything was going well

-I was sticking to my goal

-I had my temptations under control

-skim milk and raisin bran would fill my day

-swimming and treadmill would do the trick

A dear friend came home with this on our anniversary.
I quit big time !

Its our 2nd !!!

The first of anything is always special..but the 2nd is even more special..The first year took a while, but the 2nd, went in a jiffy.As much as I soaked in the feelings of being togther,it all went by way too fast.Time flies is more than a cliche!

I prefer romance, you prefer action
I love scenery, you cant get a hang of it
I can go on and on about the differences..but there have been numerous times when I say something and you nod your head saying you were just thinking of the same.8 years of knowing you, nothing has changed one bit.You still walk over things that are lying on the floor,you leave your clothes piling up.But you always like to lsiten to me, my needs and wants,you love growing in our relationship.You are so perfect for me.Its only with you I can be myself.Its only with you, I can call names about anyone , even you and yet be so normal.

Many a times, I choose the channel on TV that we will watch, I choose the house we live in,I might not give you the tv remote all the time,I might undercook the veggies, I might shoot up the telephone bills..but

I know my heart will always feel
one love real
that love of yours
the one that only soars
Weeks and years will roll by
love will be the same between you and I

Happy anniversary dahling

In which I ignored TH

TH hates anything thats organised..
paper work- clutter clutter everywhere
coats- not in hanger
plates-dont even get to the kitchen sink
and the list goes on.
Just as we were walking tinto the gym,I turned to wave at TH to tell him I am off into the womens' changing room when I noticed he was wearing the most wrinkled, straight from the dryer pant with a contrasting t shirt and finally a leather jacket-you get the scene right?
I walked front, he walked behind,I pretended I did not know him at all!
