And so it was a super duper happening weekend
Before we go ahead, lemme tell you I MET CYBERNAG (ZEPHYR) go go get jealous :)
…one more thing needs to be spoken out loud, I SAW MISSION IMPOSSIBLE’ in the THEATRE folks…In the theatre..I CANT believe it!!!!!!!
Inspired by RS‘s post last week, we (R and I) started cleaning the kitchen
Check out the brat at work
and then we had to meet up with R’s teacher at 9.30 in the morning…since her assessments begin today..we needed to ask her teacher what exactly the assessment was all about…so we met up with teacher..the school had some book exhibition going on, so picked up some Pratham books her
R was insistent she wanted to go to daycare, so we dropped her there…you should see the fun kids have there…they all are running, screaming, shouting, all called R inside and R went away without a backward glance..sometimes I do feel she is growing up too fast :)
RD and I came back home to start the cleaning again…we fought, big time, over some stupid issue of me cleaning and him not cleaning and him cleaning and me not cleaning..finally we called it quits and just cleant in silence…
To make up to each other, RD suggested lunch and movie outside and though I never usually go for movies to theatres (I do find them a waste of money!) I agreed, ..what I told you na..making up…I HAD to make up by going to a movie with him..such a big favor and all to him..
So we went to the mall and ate lunch there
We had *Ahem ahem*
1) Momos I ate them for the first time…I mean I am married to a Calcuttan, the daughter of a Calcuttan, and not eaten Momos *Gasp* I LOVED THEM..I need to Patao Seema into giving me the recipe
4) Subway sandwich
5) Gola (Kalakhatta flavor yummmmmmmm)
And then we went to see the movie…for which
I we obviously had to buy popcorn…which was pretty yummmmmmmm…I managed to break RD’s elbow and arm holding him tightly *ahem ahem* when Tom Cruise does all those stunts…I dont think the guy will ever suggest an action movie as a kiss and make up act
The movie is great, but I think Anil Kapoor has made a fool of himself in it *Cringes looking at his act*
My parents were coming enroute to Ahmedabad from Goa staying with us for 3 hours before boarding their train to Ahmedabad..and before we reached home, they were reaching..RD got all into the Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise’s name in the movie) mode, weaving the car in and out of the traffic and all that
I reached about 10 minutes AFTER amma/appa who took the keys from the neighbour while RD went to get R from the daycare…
We had burgers for dinner (its a permanent weekend fixture I think in the R household) and rasam (RMD is a big rasam freak) and then amma/appa went to the station
Amma got for us
1) Murukku made at home
2) Coconut burfi which is already over
3) Tuver which is home grown.(It actually is growing in their house in Goa..isnt that super).so waiting to make some tuver ringana nu shaak and undhiyu now
And oh did I mention I am a great manager, in the three hours they were here, I managed to make amma appa cut the veggies for the week, pomegranates for the week and skin the tuver (which is by no means an easy task) I rock!
Slept early since we were tired with the cleaning and movie seeing and cutting
We all woke up in great anticipation of meeting Zephyr…she had told me that she will come by about 11ish..and R was so excited about meeting her
Me being the ever lazy one…had the following menu
1) Fried rice (Amma had cut the veggies yesterday night)
2)Boondi raita (RD and R got the boondi)
3) Gajar Halwa (Which I forgot to give her!!!!can you believe that)
4) Potato chips (RD and R got from the shop)
Smart na I am
She arrived at about 11ish and is this absolutely amazing person to talk to…I cant believe our age difference before she is SUPER COOL
I mean, RD and I and R got along with her like a house on fire…I have never seen R mix so easily with a stranger..she is so so cool…and I promised her I wont write about her in the blog..but boss, I cant help it…she is super cool..we spoke about so many things..from blogs, to blogger meets, to in laws to children to parents, to what not and her hair style is so super cute..
RD is like ‘I cant even call you mami, you look so young’ hehehee
and oh the gifts she got
1) T shirts for RD and me…both black in colour our favorites and she even got the sizes right!!!
2) A doctor set for R (She broke the patient into 3 pieces, which means thats definitely NOT a career for her)
3) Cute hair clips for R
4) Bourbon biscuits and Dark Fantasy biscuits for
RD was like her bag seems to be a Santa goodie bag :)
and then we spoke to Ratzz on the phone since RD tweeted (I dont know what?) about Zephyr being here and Ratzz called up..thank you Ratzz for introducing me to Zephyr…and babes, I met her before you *Sticks tongue out*
We managed to keep her with us till about 2.30 after which she HAD to go since she had other plans..
RD and R slept for a while, (R refused to sleep when Zephyr was around) and then I made molagapodi and sambhar podi
In the evening, RD and I tried to teach R stuff for her assessment today, but she seemed in no mood…I dont know what she is going to do today..but honestly I think some of the words, they are teaching the kids to recognize via pictures even I dont know..for eg. X for Xebec and Z for Zither…I didnt even know what they meant!!!
Dinner was maggi..lets not dwell on the fact that at 8.10 RD opens the fridge and says RM there is no maggi in the house..yes we are a pretty forward planning couple that ways..
So RD and R get down to get maggi, which I try to quickly do some blog reading..
Eat maggi, enjoy the taste, savor the moment and go to sleep
All in all, ekdum zhakaas weekend
