Woman in a Mans world!

Suma tagged me and asked me what are the 10 things I hate in men. Like she has beautifully said in her post "After 14years of marriage, you cannot hate, you live with...Everyone has their flaws and no one's perfect...", hate is too strong a word to be associated with. But yes, I do dislike some of hubby's habits and am sure I have certain habits he dislikes. I already know a few... which I am unable to change...geee.... the main one being he doesnt like me spending time on the net :(. Cmon girls, I ask you, whats wrong if I spend some time and that too as anonymously as possible with some like-minded girls!

OK before I digress further, here I jot down some habits of MY MAN which I wish could disappear magically one fine day when I get up... or on second thoughts, let them be! Thats what makes life colourful.
1. His love for remote! Esp on sundays. I wish we could just sit as a family and talk and bitch rather than watch those dumb serials.
2. His mood tantrums. The way he sulks after we fight. He has this habit of drawing back into his shell if he is too upset. I wish he should scream at me openly rather! Or maybe not :)
3. I wish he could be a little more bothered about neatness et al. But then I am no better :D So, when in a glass house, should I really throw the stone :P

Actually I cant think of any more points. I find more of negatives in me. Its as if he is there to complement them. I get frustrated easily, while he tends to think patiently. I can be extremely kiddish, while he has learnt to deal with not 2, but 3 daughters :P
So, hats off to my mans patience and wish you loads more!

Sighs and whys!

The way the first quarter of 2008 has turned out, I am wondering about the outcome of the remaining 8 months.
Met a friend of mine yesterday and she exclaimed that I have reduced a looooooooot. Not that I am not happy. I had crossed the line of normal weight and had entered the over weight zone some years back. But the way I lost weight is what I don’t want to go through again!
2008 started with the Hong Kong trip, which I will not deny that I enjoyed a lot. This was followed by the dance-arangetram of my girls which had me dancing more than them. Then, came the dreaded time of the year called exam-time which had me studying more than them. Before I could utter “s” of “sigh”, the “s” of “summer” caught on and gave us all “s” of “sickness”.
Yes, it all started with a slight fever my little one had, just after Holi. It grew till it shooted to a 103.9 and had me sponging her throughout the night. After 10 capsules of antibiotics, the fever decided to subside. 3 days of alls-OK-nothing-to-fear-now and then my older one caught it. Her fever sees nothing less than 105 degrees. And before her fever left her, I caught on too. Motherhood is amazing I must say. Had my daughter been fine, I would have oohed and aahed. But seeing her in such a state, made me only more determined and I gulped Crocin and decided to take the Viral head-on. The worst part of it all is that my inlaws are not here as of now. So, I miss their moral support. I had called my father to baby-sit for me but the day he complained of body ache, I told him to keep a minimum safe distance from us. We don’t want him affected too.
My daughter is better today. The 2nd day without fever. I am OK too, except that viral fever has affected my eyes and they almost look conjunctivitis-ed – all swollen, red and watery. Doc says it will take 2 days more. Till then I am having a lovely time in office. My boss and colleague avoid me like a plague. I look cool and hip with my goggles. I come, I sit, I do timepass J No meetings, nothing! Good time to catch up on all your posts now!

Oh by the by, I must tell you what happens when you have 102 degree fever and your kid has 105.
I sit through the night, sponging my daughter. My hubby is on tour. Morning time and I look out of my balcony and get a shock of my life. My car is missing! I run to the shelf where I keep the keys. The keys are very much there. I call for my driver. He is sitting downstairs with the watchman thinking I had taken the car out for something. I am almost in tears. How is it possible for a car to go missing when the keys are with me? I trust my driver. He has been with us for almost a decade now. I am in a state of panic. And then I try to recall when the last time I saw the car was? It strikes me that I had driven down to the medical shop last night to get some medicine.
I rush to the shop with my driver and there it was!
My sweet adorable angelic car! Waiting for me to embrace it! I have never been passionate about cars but at that moment I could have hugged and kissed it. I felt a surge of emotion that a mother will have on finding her lost child.
Foolish me had left it parked outside the shop and had walked back home. Though I laugh about it now, I shudder thinking what all could have gone wrong!

So, the next time you have a 102 degree fever, please don’t drive!
