Life has been hectic. Period!
I have not replied to so many comments here that I feel guilty putting up an update.
But I don’t like my blog being silent, so here I am with a quick update.
What have I been busy with?
We attended 2 birthday parties (of kids) in 2 weeks and though to some of you it might not sound as a big number but for someone who had not attended even one birthday in God knows how many years it is big. It reminds me that I am a Mother now (not that I do not have enough proofs for it) and am getting trained for future when there would be more parties to attend to. With that said, Arnav loved the parties that we have attended. The 1st one was a grand affair and was theme based and Arnav got his first tattoo there needless to say he was super excited. After that party I had been preparing him for the 2nd party and this conversation happened between us n number of times
Me: Arnav what will you say when we go to the party?
A: Appy buday!
Me: Good! (the first time he said those words, I was so overwhelmed & proud that I can not put in words)
A: Tattoo!!! Uncle!!!
He meant that he will get a tattoo made by the uncle.
By Friday the conversation took this route
Me: Arnav what will say when we go to the party?
A: Tattoo!!! Uncle!!!
Me: lol!!! That’s true but what will you say there?
A: Tattoo!!! Uncle!!! Tattoo!!! Tattoo!!! Anaao!! (Uncle will make Tattoo on Arnav’s hand)
Me: Yes uncle will make a tattoo but what will you say at the party?
A: Appy buday!
Talk about setting priorities. But despite the hula boo when we went for the party yesterday and offered Arnav’s hand for tattoo he was fidgety and lasted only till a face was created. I went ahead & got tattooed to encourage him and when I asked now will you get one? He says Nahin!
Kids I tell you! It is hard to believe that he was muttering tattoo in his sleep also! No I am not kidding, he was.
Besides attending kiddo b’day parties it is work that has been keeping me busy. Loads to do, generating new MIS’s launching it on some site and then fielding questions & queries on it, that’s a normal day in my life. But then there are incidents which give us a reason to smile, no change it to laugh!
Last week I had left my Sodexho coupons on my desk (yes I can be careless that ways) and security people took it away leaving a post it to contact them. Upon contacting I was asked to go and collect it from their office which is some 1.5 kms away from where I sit. After dilly dallying for two days I went there on Friday to collect it and guess what? They cannot find it!!!
Imagine, security people confiscate something from my desk to keep it safely and they lose it. Paradoxical! Not that I am letting the matter end like this but I cannot help laughing at the situation.
On the books front I finished reading “House Rules” by Jodi Picoult and though the book was good but it was a painful read. 30% down the book I had guessed the mystery behind the murder (around which the book was woven) but had to read the whole book to wrap it up. I could have left the book in between but the thought “what if my guess is wrong” made me finish the book. The reason I could guess the end was that after having read so many books from an author you know the pattern of their writings.
In other news after deliberating for almost a month I finally ordered Sophie Kinsella’s latest!!! Yay!!! And I start reading it today. Talk about silver lining!!! Man so many times I was tempted to leave House Rules to start this one but I controlled. Wish had the same kind of control on dieting. I like to lose weight like NOW but not doing anything for it. Sigh!!
Aah! There is one more silver lining at the end of tunnel. This weekend we are going to Alibaug for two days. Yay!!! I badly need the break!
So how was your weekend?
Did I tell you that I had spent the better part of yesterday scrubbing the walls of kitchen & bathrooms? No? Here I have told you but then I see myself enjoying at the beach next Saturday and forget all my woes!!!
Not to self: stop being self-centred.
I repeat my question how was your weekend?
And here I leave you with 2 snaps of the little devil.
Happy Monday :D
