Starting the New Year – Blogging Marathon Post 1

With the first ever blog Marathon in my blogging history here is the first post


– Featured for a post in Womensweb

– Read ‘Breathless in Bombay’ by Murzban Shroff (Β

RD got the book for me last week when I was on bed rest in hope that I will occupy myself with something..unfortunately, each of the story was hard hitting and so realistic and so upsetting, that my mood wasnt really up..RD’s advice on seeing my face ‘Stop Reading the book will ya?’

– Weight loss is high on the mind…I weigh 71 kgs now (recent weight done at the gynac) ideal weight is about 60 kgs..or actually 55-58 kgs..can I do it? Well a question in mind always…

– I have decided to renew my subscription with the online library…thats the only postive thing I seem to be doing for myself

– With the blogging marathon in going live, I am a bit worried..what if I dont have anything to write about? Funny this comes from someone who blogged nearly non stop for about 2 years…but hey, I can suffer from blogger’s block..Darn!Β  not now

-Had a new year party at the building yesterday evening and we had fun…more on the party and the menu and stuff in the next post…I need fodder to write eh?

-New Year Resolutions in the R family

RM: R I am taking new year resolutions

R: Woh kya hota hai

RM: Arey if you decide on something, today,you have to follow it through the year

R: Aap kya kar rahe ho

RM: 1. To lose weight

2. Not to shout at R

3. Not to fight with RD

And what are you taking?

R thinks for like 5 minutes…I have 18 revolutions

RM: Revolutions

R: Arey aap revolutions liya toh main bhi revolutions legi

RM: Oh okie resolutions

R: 1. not to suck my thumb

2. not to bite my nails

3. not to wipe my nosey on your t shirt

4. not to open the fridge

5. not to cry

6. to eat kalkand only on sundays and tuesdays..

aur..aur…aur…aur kuch nahi..

RM: Thats great R

R beams, goes to her father and says ‘Appa, amma and I have taken resolutions..aap ka kya hai?

RD looks up from the love of his life (his laptop for those who thought otherwise!) and says ‘I will be a good boy through out the year!’

Whatever that means *Rolls eyes*

– R fell down last week and had a big bump on her head…Amma called it the appam on the head…RD and I went hyper, took her to the doctor who prescribed an antibiotic with the usual ‘ensure she doesnt vomit or feel nauseous for 24 hours’


Now for someone who is used to the sweet balls of homeopathy for 3.5 years of her 4.5 years on earth, drinking allopathic meds is a me…IT IS A CHALLENGE

One morning, I am pleading to her to drink the meds…I cant lift her or jerk too much because of medical reasons so no use holding her and shoving it down her throat

RM: Please da R, drink it na

R looks at me gravely with big eyes and says ‘Amma, I dont understand ke iss duniya mein log kyun kadva medicines pannara che’ translated loosely from about 5 languages as ‘Amma, I dont understand why people in this world make bitter medicines?’

Any answers anyone?

  12. sudhagee says:

    Yes, why? Even I would like to know why “kadva medicines pannara che” πŸ™‚ And I like R’s revolutions. They are such fun, no ?

  13. Pepper says:

    R’s resolutions are the cutest. They added a big smile to my face πŸ™‚

    Don’t stress over the weight RM. Whatever be the numbers, you don’t look fat. I understand you might want to get within accepted parameters for health purposes, so for that, the first thing you need to do it let go of the stress, and incorporate regular exercise in your routine.

    Happy New Year to you, RD and the little star πŸ™‚

  14. chattywren says:

    Wish you all luck in sticking to your resolutions, err revolutions!! Loved R’s – not to open fridge:) Wow, is that 4 languages in one sentence – am sure even google translate will give up.

  15. Zephyr says:

    May god grant you the strength to carry out your revolutions. And do let me know how
    ‘good’ boy RD is turning out to be πŸ˜€

    What is this new marathon? I thought what you have been doing is more than that — a post a day!

  16. telugumom says:

    Happy New Year RM!! Good resolutions πŸ™‚

    Totally agree with R on why people have to make kadva medicines….. I had to struggle with my older one when I was in India and it was a nightmare!!

  17. Swaram says:

    R is the sweetest and good luck to the R household with all ur resolutions πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰
    Gud luck with the marathon!:)

  18. Jayashree says:

    Wish you and your family a very happy new year R’s mom. You know, that’s such an insightful comment from R…..I hate medicines myself and absolutely don’t understand why all medicines have to taste so terrible.

  19. rajk says:

    Loved the multilingual question – the technical marvel as well as the content of it! It is one question I have asked myself n no. of times – the latest just yesterday when my toddler threw up after being made to drink an unpalateable syrup. With all the advances we’ve made in this world, why do we still have such yucky tasting medicines for kids?

  20. YAY!! for starting the blogging marathon RM πŸ™‚
    Loosing weight is always a question on my mind too but cannot afford to live on diet food & do exercise LOL
    No answer on last one RM.. just one thing R is genius to use 5 languages in one sentence πŸ™‚
    Hope her big bump is gone now & she is feeling alright πŸ™‚

  21. The Bride says:

    R’s revolutions are too cute! My favourite: Not to rub nosey on your T-shirt. I must also make this revolution.

  22. Mathangi Vijay says:

    Hey I thought Marathon should be a breeze for you since you’ve always been writing 5 days a week. Anyways Dont worry you’ll do well.
    Hope R is feeling better now.. Hope you are better too..

  23. Wish the R family a very happy new year! May you get all that you dream of in 2013 and more! πŸ™‚

    R’s new year resolutions are too cute! And LOL @ RD’s. πŸ˜€

    Loved the question by R at the end of the post. I really don’t know why. πŸ™‚

  24. UmaS says:

    Another Blogathon ???? πŸ˜‰ Go on…
    Take care of that little girl…hugs πŸ™‚
    And I hope that your resolutions make it thru the year πŸ™‚

  25. Blogathon? Oh come on RM, it will be a cakewalk for you!!
    R’s resolutions are so cute!! And I share all of your resolutions !!!
    Happy new year RM πŸ™‚

  26. techie2mom says:

    Wishing you a new year full of happiness….All the best with your resolutions….
    Loved R’s resolutions though πŸ™‚
    I have similar thoughts as R. Why bitter medicine?!

  27. Happy New Year to you and your family RM! Hope 2013 is a wonderful year for all of you. Good luck with the resolutions. And good luck to R with hers! πŸ˜€
