Phew! sometimes I feel I should just be working 7 days a week…its easier getting up at 4.30 everyday and then cooking and going to office than doing weekend stuff…
It was a hectic weekend again…
Friday night: We shopped for veggies and came back home to see that the maid was standing out for us…so I quickly made peas daliya and
ordered requested RD to get some boondi from down..so we had peas daliya pulav and boondi raita….and the conclusion drawn
I cook well under pressure….I mean the faster I try to finish the dish..the tastier it turns out..of course we are also talking here about burnt karelas and raw bhindis..what? the former was because I forget that the gas was on and the later because R forgot that the bhindi cant be eaten NOW kacchaa!!!
R had school at 9..we had to drop her to the place where her annual day is being held and then pick her up from school..we went to the temple and then dropped her and came back home..
So I got up to make hot hot methi na theplas…and get the comment ‘amma aa toh kadava hai’!!!! from the brat…what else do you expect methi na theplas to be 🙂 and just for the records..it was not even kavada…the brat wanted shrikhand thats all!!!
Oh did I mention RD left for Australia…and since he was leaving in the evening we were to do his packing..and then we are going for a wedding next weekend to Trivandrum which means that he comes in on the next saturday morning at 6 and we leave at 10…which means that he needs to pack two bags…
1) For Australia
2) For Trivandrum..and to all those who think I HAVE A WEEK to do it..’sorry, I refuse to pack the guy’s bag…its too much hard work and I am not a typical wife…you want to wear clothes, you pack them, I will push in the extras like shaving creams and soaps okie?
anyways so he is ‘working’ on the computer while I am
nagging requesting him to start packing…Ufff RM dont get so worked up..we can do it..
okie..boss…your trip…you can manage..
We have to pick up R at 11.30 and we leave home at 11.20..for the first time I am thinking…I am going to be one of those horrid parents who will be late etc etc..we see two mothers from R’s school struggling to catch a rick..since we are already late, I decide to pick them up as well…we give them a lift and RD going ‘Ferarri’ style to her school..only for us to wait till
for the kids to come!!!
By the time the teachers finish giving instructions to all the parents sitting R’s class…R has managed to fall down twice, eat a whole dabba of cornflakes, drink water, lose one ribbon, get her shirt out of the pinafrock, losen both her chotis and laugh and dance with 4 classmates, and share her corn flakes with 3 other kids…yaa yaa…who is not hyperactive eh? *rolls eyes*
I get palpitations just hearing what the teacher is saying..they get either gold dress or silver dress (thats today they give the dress) black sandals (without heels) red ribbons in hand to be tied, make up to be done, golden/silver streaks to be done on the hair…
I am almost fainting when my knight in shining armour tells me..dont worry RM, do what you can…Gah! what does he know…he is off for a conference na..
but he being the knight get her sandals and while I go to get the make up…in the shop where I make a fool of myself not once but four times…(Thats another story) I go to another shop handing RD stuff in his hand saying pay for this pay for this..
As I am going to another shop
RD: What did you buy RM
RM: Errr..make up stuff
RD: I paid SIX HUNDRED Bucks..what exactly are you making her up?
RM: Errrr….I got a powder, and lipstick and eye liner…..
then I tell him smugly “boss be happy your wife doesnt use make up at all…otherwise I would be unaffordable’
RD just shakes his head in despair!
by the way, that bloody guy cheated us…I had asked for golden/silver glitter for R’s hair but told him I will come on Monday to pick up depending on R’s dress, but when I went away, he gave RD both!!! and thats why the 600 Rs!
anyways, if anyone wants golden/silver glitter please let me know..I will courier it okie?
We had lunch
1) Cheese dosa for
R, RM and RD
2) Hakka noodles and manchurian
3) Mexican sandwich
It was yummmmmmmm
Came back home and I went to the parlour for waxing because I wont be able to do it next week..the lady managed to draw blood waxing on my wound…and then to add some more spice she put a lot of antiseptic body toner for my wound on the leg to burn the bloody skin off…and then she of course said ‘sorry sorry sorry’ like a million times 🙂
I came back and RD left…he dropped R and me on the way so that we could go to the doctor….the doc was not there but we got the meds for R
We walked by a ‘daab’ shop and R was like ‘amma, mereko venam’ so me being the indulgent mom said ‘okie’ and managed to drink some myself 🙂
We stopped a bit away from our house, enjoyed a sev puri from a known uncle and then walked back home holding hands….Got shrikhand on the way
1) Methi na theplas yaa yaa the morning ones continued
2) Shrikhand 🙂
Went to sleep after R was sure that her ‘appa not in the house na’ a million times and RM managing to lock and unlock the main door a million and one times…what? its not my job..its RD’s job and I get confused whether its clock wise or anti clock wise!
I get up at 5..yes yes half an hour late..and then have a bath..what to do? R wont let me have a bath otherwise!
and then plonk go back to sleep..didnt I tell you, I can do it..have a bath and promptly go back to sleep..its an art folks, its an art!
anyways, I get up with start where I see R on my paunch saying ‘amma, amma dekho kaun aya hai?’
RD is back giving me a surprise is it..or is it my amma who decides her daughter shouldnt be alone….I look around and see no one!
RM: who who who
R: Arey amma, dekho sun bhi up ho gaya..abhi get up karo..
yaa yaa….you dont need to wait for the next janam to get what you sowed in this janam..have a baby and it all comes back to you! so I HAVE to get up
Then I am miss super efficient…make poha for breakfast, dust the house, vagharofy the mamra, clean the kitchen cabinets and off we go to Zephyr’s place for lunch 🙂
we have….(get jealous people)
1) Baingan ka bharta
2) Carrot raita
4) Coconut rice
6) Curd rice
7) Strawberry custard….
What fun…R and I ate and ate and ate…Zephyr was very very indulgent with R jumping from her bed to the bean bag to the bed and back to the bean bag…we talked and talked and talked..loved loved loved the time spent with her..and oh she gave two books to R which R is pakaoing me to read for like a million times!!!!
Came back and went to snooze land 🙂
Got up to have chai and did all the preps for the week…veggie cutting, atta baandhing, and even ironed R’s uniform…here I have to admit, I AM MISSING RD 😦
We then went down to play with the other kids of the building…we played confusion..does anyone know this game…chalo chalo ask around and tell me if anyone can tell what it is…I learnt it new yesterday 🙂
Came back home and went through the starfall website Seema had recommended…and then ate a dinner of
Sakaria nu shaak 🙂
And then back to snoozeland.
Wish me luck folks..today evening I am going shopping for R’s annual day…pray for me okie?
