Have you come across that feeling when you wish to say a lot but don’t know what to speak? When you feel a lot inside you but don’t know how to express it? When a lot goes in your head but still don’t know how to break the silence?
Isn’t this feeling persistent these days? Despite so much going around us, I have been struggling for weeks now to write something and I have the whole day to myself yet, I am unable to think and write anything on a piece of paper. The same old routine, the same old house, the same old tasks and the same old lockdown year followed by another, swagging like a devil. We all had battled successfully last year, locking ourselves inside our houses. Not meeting people, not travelling, not going out and so on. Since the situation was new for us and not a normal one to adapt to but, walking that extra mile always makes the distance shorter. And we had thought we actually did it! 2021 came with new hopes, new highs. We had thought worse was over and we had battled well, surviving like a king of the hill. But who knew we are out of the frying pan into the fire since the situation around is much more grappling than last year.
Hand to Hand and Bag to Bag, List of Groceries shall never end!
This statement holds so well for ‘Always falling short, Dear GROCERIES’.
Do you ever ponder on the daily grind with GROCERIES? Enough has been talked about and read about motherhood and children, various challenges and struggles. I mean, being a mother you have a good day and a bad day. Some happy moments and some sad moments. But with groceries, it is a day to day, every day, a constant struggle.
I do wish there were bots in the kitchen who would make a note of groceries falling short in the kitchen, place the required order, receive the order and stack them at the correct place. Wow…doesn’t that sound just great! I mean we already are into the digitised world, so this sounds no big deal, isn’t it?
- Alright, this one is a special one, close to my heart. I am going to start this blog on a very positive note since it’s about me and my husband celebrating 13 years of marriage and almost 15 years of togetherness. I know he will be reading the blog and so will his friends because I am surely going to tag him on this one (wink wink!). Hence, I need to be politically correct!
We both were fortunate enough to get hooked up by a so called ‘LOVE’ marriage ( I hope he also feels the same!). Though even after 13 years the battle is ON as to who proposed to whom but as they say, it had to happen and here WE are. Nevertheless, be it love or arrange, expectation struggles are almost the same. Isn’t it?The WEdding starts with WE and truly it means WE, WE as one unit, WE as one. Though I am assuming in the initial years of any ‘WEDDING’ it is all about ME. As in the questions and expectations that run into our mind now and then. Why ME and why not HIM? Why always I have to compromise and why not HIM? Why should I change my style and why not HIM and blah blah blah…..????So over these 13 years of togetherness things have finally moved from ‘ME’ to ‘WE’ and in fact now all attention is on ‘THEM’.
I am BUSY!It’s been quite some time since I have come up with a new blog post. Now you might think why? And I shall come up with a staple answer. I was quite busy hence, couldn’t get time to write or tied up with few things hence, no time off and blah blah blah…
Are these not few run-of-the-mill replies to procrastinate things or to give a picture to the other person that we are really really swamped?
Along these lines, here comes my long-awaited post ‘The happiness of being always busy’.
Working around the clock and running before time is the new MANTRA of today. The Happiness of being busy, busy and busier. We all are busy going around the same circle over and over again which gives us a feeling of doing nothing. With every passing day, we strive for more and more and at times we feel lost, without direction, following the same routine and conventional life.
2021: Knock, Knock!
2020: Who is there?
2020: Ohhhh 2021! Where were you all this while…you know how long you took to bring back the smile?
2021: Smile, what do you mean?
2020: People hate me here and everywhere, they want me to just disappear!
2021: Disappear, you mean Go Away? But they are the ones who welcomed you with all their heart on the New years day?
2020: Yes, they did! But now they wish and pray for me to just be over and welcome YOU to take over.
2021: But what did you do all this while that everyone wants you to exile?
Sounds weird, isn’t it? With new normal and almost everyone working from home, from where do Monday morning blues comes into the picture. Well for me, it does, I have started to have Monday morning blues and that too terrible ones.
Since pandemic has forced all of us to group together at home and work from home, the weekend still holds a very special place in my heart. Weekdays are like all hell broke loose. With a husband and two kids locked in separate rooms, clinging to their gadgets, I literally go crazy hopping around from one room to another. Mumma….mom….Anu…..is all I could hear in the morning other than the continuous lectures which go in the background to chew my mind.
