I tried a new recipe last night. Moroccan Chicken. I made the chicken with lots of vegetables. I made the Quinoa. I left both on the stove top with the serving spoons on the lids of the two saucepans because honestly, I didn't believe that Mr. M would be able to find the spoons all… Continue reading I’ll Figure It Out!
Valentine's day. Definitely not something Mr. M and I care about. But that week is always very special. I'll give you a hint: Birthday + Me. What's actually fun is that everybody has a birthday but I usually celebrate my birthday for weeks. I (shamelessly) start reminding Mr. M and Ka weeks in advance. I… Continue reading My 35th
Funny how relationships work, huh? 9 1/2 years of being married and I still miss him when he's away. The feeling's the same as it was the first time. It is the same restlessness. The same vacuum that I try to fill in vain. The same sleeplessness. The same knot in the stomach. The same… Continue reading Love or Something Like It…
I can't believe that we landed just 6 days ago. It's almost as if a couple of pairs of wheels sprouted from beneath our feet as soon as we set foot here. 6 days and we've already opened a bank account, finalised the school for Ka and found a house for us to live in,… Continue reading The Art of EB
Last Saturday we turned 9. Mr. M and I, that is. That means, 9 years ago on this day, I was freaking out and trembling from head to toe, begging my grandma to convince my dad to call off the wedding. I was so desperate that I was prepared to be a bonded labour for the… Continue reading 9 Going on 10
A friend of mine asked me a few weeks ago how would one know when the right time to have a baby is. I told her, "the right time is when you want a baby". Since nothing can ever prepare you for what's coming, there's really no point trying to be prepared. You know, it's… Continue reading The Martyr
Yesterday Mr. M and I were talking. You know. Like normal people who love each other sometimes do. Now, don't get me wrong. I am certainly not trying to imply that we are normal people. I have a little more conscience (I still can't believe that that's how this word is spelt!!!) than that. But we do occasionally go… Continue reading Normal, Eh? What’s That?
Last weekend was one of those rare occasions when the whole weekend was not spent watching movies. For a change, we all had breakfast at the table and after breakfast Ka wanted one of us to tell her a story. I was still eating and so, Mr.M decided to take advantage of the golden opportunity. Ka and… Continue reading Storytelling
I lost it! Completely! And I feel terrible about it. I need to work harder at it and I need to keep trying. Remember how I said that there will be no more yelling and shouting? I failed. Miserably. And for a ridiculous reason at that. But I am not going to give up. This time around,… Continue reading I Can…
So, it works. Like a charm. It had to. After all it was a genius idea. The only downside to it is that the music needs to go on and on and on. All night long. If for some bizarre reason, like me not being able to sleep because of it or me sleep-walking and 'sleep-off-ing'… Continue reading What a Pain!!!
