Just another day

I have a problem. All you blogger pals have so much so interesting to say that each time I come to the comp my head bursting with my new post I end up getting hooked onto you guys and the post just dies. It's a bit like when you meet friends after a long time, everyone talks together and it's tough to get in a word because you want to talk as well as listen. And when you come away you realise you have a host of things that you forgot to tell everyone. Hmmm.. it's fun, actually. And on second thoughts... not a problem problem.

I went to the gym after two days.. Sunday being a self declared holiday and Monday -- sick leave.. not me.. Hrit decided to remind me of my OM status by falling ill. His old demon, wheezing, struck with a vengeance. It's comes in a flash and goes ever so slowly. I was caught unawares as he'd been doing very well since we moved to Pune almost two years back. I'd given away our nebuliser to a friend with a sick child. So there I was running around to borrow one and trying all kinds of syrups, I'd actually forgotten which ones worked best. God knows I tried everything including a host of home remedies which normally did wonders for him but Sunday night nothing worked. He slept fitfully, coughed continuously and kept saying, "Mama I can't breathe".

I've never felt so helpless.

He's much better now, though the cough will take some time to go.

At the gym we had a lady-trainer who took a dance-aerobics session. Like I've said many times over dance is my Waterloo. However, I was NOT going to let anything get in the way of my pizza this time. So while the other girls/women danced I kept to the beat and did my own version -- more aerobics than dance but who cares as long as the kgs are dropping.

Today's weight: 70.2kgs. I'm happy.

And now I'm off to search the web for fancy dress ideas. Hrit is an astronaut and Naisha is planet Venus this Monday. Help will be much appreciated. Crafty, creative people.. MM .. if you're reading this help!

  2. Pardon me if the suggestion is idiotic.. You could try using a round helmet for the poor astronaut's head.

    Since, i know that you are a voracious reader, i seriously suggest you get an e-reader. I just got mine and it feels as good as a book. I suggest the Sony Ereader if you like highlighting and taking notes, but since you read more fiction, you can see the kindle. It is much cheaper.

    Another good news for you: Fiction ebooks are relatively cheaper while nonfiction aren't :(

  3. Lil P is also venus.. mailing u her pic rt now :)

  4. I know you might have heard this before but have you tried homeopathy for the wheezing. It really helped with my younger one, I was using a nebulizer regularly until I started trying this. In the last year or so I haven't given him any cough syrup at all. He still has a few episodes but I use only the homeo meds and the attacks seem to be milder and shorter.

    Fancy dress - all I can say is All the best :). I'm completely non-artsy types and moan about needing to do it once a year!

  5. @Sugeeth: Nope.. no suggestion is idiotic. Can't find any helmet. Will have to do with a cap.
    Will have to work out the e-reader thing. It's a good idea but I prefer reading the good old way.. reclining on the sofa with a book. The 'cheaper' part is tempting, though.

    @MM: Hugs from a deep-in-debt mum. P looked just so happy in the pic and of course very Venusy...

    @Aparna: Hmm.. I did try it while in Bombay. I still need to find a good homeopath here in Pune.


Glad to have you here. It's your turn to share your thoughts...
