Nothing Important Really

Disclaimer: Randomly weird post written

Except that

– R has her sports day tomorrow and she is doing something with a pom pom..and she has been selected for the finals of the running race…I dont expect anything from her honestly, and so last year since I had taken a half day, RD is taking the day off tomorrow..I am working because I have very less leaves left!

– That conference is happening on Thursday and yes, I am going..please pray for me and I am praying hard that I dont make a fool of myself..God please please!

– I am reading ‘State of Fear’ by Michael CrichtonΒ Β Gosh! he sure has views regarding global warming..would recommend everyone to read it..I havent finished it yet..but he sure has confused my already confused brain!

– The gaadis for the NS are here, but we dont have a camera! RD’s BB conked off (you can partly blame it on the witchy thoughts which the BB owner’s spouse had on it!) and so no more pictures 😦

– I want to take R to so many places, but just not being able to do it 😦 Its so bugging!

– I want to join a Yoga class but not getting anyone near my place!

– I got a cook finally..and she has been there for more than a month..I didnt put it up on the blog after my last fiasco! She comes in the evening..makes roti ,subji, dal, salad…we carry forward the next day…She is sweet, clean and is not superlative cook, but a decent one..RD is happy to see a full meal on his plate, I am happy because I dont have to cook and R is happy because she gets some extra time with me…I am glad I got her..and all that guilt of not cooking for my family hasnt surfaced yet..

But, I must admit, I do miss cooking weird things πŸ™‚ Anyways she is off for a week this week..so we had chole rice yesterday and today I plan to cook paneer chily and fried rice πŸ˜‰

– I can get up half an hour later in the morning since RD and I carry forward our roti and bhaji from the previous day πŸ™‚ so now its only breakfast that I hae to cook…I get only at 4.45 AM to 5 AM every day..yipeeeeeeee!!!

    Hey Congrats on R getting into the finals of running race! That’s cool!
    All the very best for your conference. I am sure you would rock!
    And State of Fear is such a nice book. I love Michael Crichton as such.
    So, finally the BB bonked off is it. Sometimes, i wonder despite my jealous looks on my hubby’s phone/laptop how does it still work. Well glad the trick worked in your case at least πŸ˜‰
    And heartiest congratulations on getting a cook!!! Good that you are enjoying some extra time and luxury since her presence. You need not feel guilty about it RM. You cannot overload yourself. If you’ve got a way to feed your family well and get some time for yourself then its just great na!

    • R's Mom says:

      I am not even presenting rey Mathangi..but I am so scared I dont know why!

      Look at the BB everyday and mutter somethnig under your breath with evil thoughts..it works πŸ˜‰

      Better still, give it to the brat and ask him to jump on it twice πŸ™‚

  3. Nithvin says:

    Three cheers to you and the cook πŸ™‚
    R is in the running race finals? All the best to her..of course, i hope they make all the kids feel nice by giving all the participants prizes..
    Why don’t you take a snap from your mobile and transfer it here?

  4. meenamenon says:

    4:45 is late for u huh!!!!!!!! N hey u should kepp posting more recipes… urs are always simple yet yummmmmm

  5. Great that you found a cook to help you out. Happy for you. πŸ™‚ But 5 AM is still too early, re. 😦 You do lead a stressful life, don’t you?

    All the very best for the conference!

    The book sounds interesting. Not the type I would read usually, but will check it out.

    LOL @ witchy thoughts of BB owner’s spouse!

    • R's Mom says:

      its better than 4.15 rey πŸ™‚

      yaa..its not your type πŸ˜‰

      oh thanks for that…but honestly TGND, I need a teacher, otherwise I am too lazy to do it myself 😦 *Looks ashamed*

  6. As for yoga, you could start by doing basic exercises or meditation at home by yourself. I am sure it will help a great deal. Also, as far as I know, there are online meditation and yoga classes available – not sure if they are in India, though. I read about them here: http://snippetsnscribbles.wordpress.com/

    All the best to R for the sports day!

  7. chaitali says:

    Hey RM,
    I am so happy, that u finally managed to get a cook, i don’t find any reasons you should feel guilty for not having to cook for the family, it was very much needed to relieve you from the hectic schedule, i think u can join yoga classes now.
    And I can see sm snowing effects on ur blog is it smthing new or i just observed it today??

  8. Sumana says:

    All the best for your conference and R for her running race. Talk about Yoga, I am thinking of the same. Me and a friend of mine are taking a half hour out everyday during work and do it in our gym area. But going to a full fledged Yoga class is very beneficial.

    • R's Mom says:

      Thanks yaar Sumana…and I am not even presenting..but the very thought of interacting with strangers is scaring me 😦

      Wow! Salutes to you and your friend..how nice of you to do that!

  9. You feeling bad for not able to cook, crazy you. As long as you and family is getting home made food you should be happy. Anti jinx for that cook, hope she stays long that way you can relax and spend little extra tie with R, with all the hardwork you did in last 2-3 yrs you deserve this break.

    Even I wanted to start yoga ad not able to, even I want to take Chucky to some classes and not able to 😦 I have postponed so many things for 2013 already 😦

    • R's Mom says:

      yaa..total anti jinx πŸ™‚

      Its fine LF..I have been wanting R to join Bharatnatyam, swimming, carnatic music etc etc and more etc..finally the brat is doing nothing πŸ™‚ because the mom doesnt have any time πŸ™‚

  10. All the best to R for her sports day & all the best to R ki Mummi for that Conference:)
    Weee want piiiiics!!! Weeee want piiiics!!! Weee want piiiics…..
    Bhagwaan.. finally you found a cook huh.. glad that you will get sometime to relax & spend some with R & RD πŸ™‚

  11. Smita says:

    Aha!! Congrats on the cook re!!! I know why u r feeling elated because even a small bit of help makes a difference!
    BTW why don’t u gift a new phone to RD? Vaise ur phone main camera nathi? How come?
    Good luck to R for her race and to her Amma for the conference! It will be ok re πŸ™‚ Chill!

  12. raji says:

    Yipee for 4:45 – r u crazy rm? I typically put alarm for 5:15 am and sometimes for 5:00 am . For me, if I get up before 5:00am , I feel as if I have slept less kind of feeling for whole day. 5:00 am is the bar for me., prior to that is a sacrifice of sleep. congratulations on the cook finding. I don’t have the luxury of a cook here, but these days I have started making 4-5 curries and dal/kadi/rasam on sundays which last me until Wednesday/Thursday. I make only rotis on those days and heat up subjis from fridge. That has helped me with stress level on weekdays.,

    Time to move to a smart phone. How about nokia 920? I switched few weeks ago and am loving it.
    Sorry for hogging your comment space today.

    • R's Mom says:

      I used to try doing that…making for the week..but somehow it didnt work out for me πŸ™‚
      Nokia 920? for the spouse..Pata nahi Raji..He is the technology guru in the house…I dont understand half the features in these phones.

  13. Arch says:

    RM, how do you wake up so early? I never knew that about you! Your awesomeness quotient in my head just went 100x higher. R runs?! yaay, make her a sports loving child. Good luck for the conference!

    • R's Mom says:

      I dont have a choice rey Arch πŸ™‚ But I sleep early as well hehehe πŸ™‚

      R is forever jumping..but I guess..all four year olds do that πŸ™‚

  14. Kavitha says:

    the pouring dots are good. Initially when I opened your page in the morning (i didn’t had breakfast then) i thought something wrong with my eyes that the letters are blinking. I rubbed my eyes (i swear) and i thought may be I am too hungry (!!!) that the letters are not properly visible to me. LOL !!

  15. Ashwathy says:

    I am not even sure why you get all that guilt for not cooking for your family. I cook on weekends… and make special items like fried rice or non veg. I make hot dosas for hubby in the morning, but if it is poha the maid makes it. I keep an even distribution of such stuff. No guilt at all. If I can do it effectively (and the maid does her share well), where is the problem?? Seriously, you need to get rid of that mentality! 😐

    Do join a yoga class….. it will be good for you. Weight loss, plus overall feel-good factor.

    ‘State of Fear’ by Michael Crichton eh?? Need to check it out.

    • R's Mom says:

      no no rey..no guilt at all…I did feel it at the start, but I have realised life is much easier!

      Yaa…I am trying to find one near the house πŸ™‚

  16. Vidya says:

    Yaay! for the cook! But you call 4.45-5.00 AM late? Its bleddddy midnight for me!

  17. half and hour more to sleeeeeeeeeeeeeppp.. what more can one ask for haaan..

    and as all have said why do you feel guilty LOOK AT ME .. I never cook . oh ok I do but rarely πŸ™‚ I dont say I am a bad man .. RIGHT dont say it πŸ™‚

    • R's Mom says:

      I agree..espeically in the morning πŸ™‚

      nah, nothing wrong in not cooking rey…as long as you can survive on your own alone without troubling others..which you have been doing for so many years na

  18. Tanishka says:

    Hey RM all the best for the conference and congratulations fir the cook… πŸ™‚

  19. Comfy says:

    All the best for your conference RM. I am sure you will do well.

    Yay! on you getting a cook but you still get up at 4:45??? Why?? Go get some more sleep, I say.
    And oh I can understand the missing cooking some times. But I think it is great to get that break. So have fun πŸ™‚

  20. Zephyr says:

    I am in time to wish you all the best for the conference. you will do fine, don’t worry. Hugs.
    When you cook at leisure on weekends you will feel good and not rushed for time and rustle up something to fill up on. Hope to see the new gadis soon BB or not BB.

  21. sjscribbles says:

    RM – Spill the beans ! I really need to know – what time do you and R hit the bed ? M and I generally do by 10.00 to 11.00

    I keep the alarm at 5.00 but i find it very difficult to wake up at 5, generally end up waking 6 -6.45am ? How do u manage 5 am everyday ?

    Congrats on the cook – RM ! Good Luck to R for the race and for your conference…

    • R's Mom says:

      We sleep by 9.30 max…thats like definitely the deadline on week days..

      RD leaves for work by 6.15 rey..so have to get up to get the breakfast etc read na πŸ™‚

  22. Amit says:

    Give the kiddo some Horlicks ok? She will win. πŸ™‚
    And I have read that book. Maybe that guy is right but I did not find that book very interesting. If you ever get time, read his other books like – Timeline and Sphere. They are the best Science fiction novels I have read.

  23. Swaram says:

    Wooo congrats on the cook!:P
    RM, a call is still due from ur side πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

  24. anisnest says:

    still 5am is too much re.. why don’t you guys switch to oatmeal/cereals/bread for breakfast that way you can have little more sleep na..
    And I am super duper happy that you are going for the conference.. sending all my wishes your way.. just watch out on what you speak and when you speak but in the fear of watching that don’t go total silent.. you will rock.. no worries..
    yayyyy on getting the cook.. now relax and enjoy this phase.. πŸ™‚

    • R's Mom says:

      Arey I have to make proper dabba for R na..which she takes to school…we leave at 7 in the morning..too early for breakfast..so we carry it along.. πŸ™‚
