Blogathon 2014 – Post 1

Dear RM,

Its a brand new year. So lets start with some resolutions. There is nothing wrong with keeping realistic resolutions and anyways, whatever resolutions you have made till date have been a flop. so you may as well keep some eh? just for the spirit of the season and all that 🙂

1. Be more positive, optimistic and look forward to new challenges in life
2. Dont bother losing weight any more. You are an XL and will remain so all your life. So now buy clothes that fit you, not those you need to squeeze into. But remember to get fitter okay?
3. Cook one new dish every week. It can be anything, sweet, savory, hot, cold, bitter, sour, whatever, but one new dish every week okay? Thats not asking for too much na…
4. Shout less at the brat. Yes, I mean it. You are just going overboard. I know you mean well and all that jazz, but just try being more polite and firm eh?
5. Go on a proper holiday with the brat and the spouse for a week. Like a holiday which does not involve going to parents, inlaws, brother, sister, sis in laws a proper holiday spent in a hotel. The last one you took was in 2006 when you went with RD on your honeymoon!!!

Not bad, five is an achievable number no?

I think you can do it RM, I truly believe you can. Now, its up to you. Lets talk again next year, same time.

    Scream less. Scream less. Scream less. Repeating it for myself!

    May be, a proper holiday should be here to this side of the world?? I’ll show you around Golkonda, the awesome zoo, Film city, Charminar and the palaces. If that doesn’t allure you, I’ll get you superb Biryani from Paradise!! 😀 😀 Works??! 🙂

  22. Sreetama says:

    Happy new year RM & best wishes of the new year to RD, R darling & your entire family! One of my resolutions is to revive my blog hence started blogathon 2014! 🙂 All the best with your resolutions! 🙂

  23. I loved your holiday wala resolution! I have lived in Delhi, A’bad, Indore and Pune, thanks to Dad’s transfers and we made it a point to see ALL touristy and non touristy places around. Those are some of my most cherished childhood memories. It sort of reduced after moving to Pune as we could only go to resorts that allowed dogs. Now that my dad is retiring, he and mom are planning to see a new place every 2-3 months inc Bhutan, Leh, Laddakh, Kerala! 😀
    So do it! You might be making the loveliest memories for R. You can do it with family members too…

    • R's Mom says:

      What fun yaar…I did go on vacations when I was a kid..but somehow, with RD its just not happening…hope uncle aunty have tons of fun travelling 🙂

  24. Ashwathy says:

    I certainly hope you are able to stick to these, dear. #5 shocked me… definitely time for you to start planning a proper holiday. And no, I do not mean meeting relatives! 😛

  25. Wonderful post! But is there a common link where we all be sharing our blog links and then comment on two links right above us or something like that!

  26. hitchy says:

    We kicked off the first day of the year with a visit to a nearby Bird Sanctuary and we are dedicating this year to Bharat Bhraman! 😀 Hope to keep taking holiday after holiday… I hope you have plenty as well 😀
