Away on Business Trip to Indonesia!

  • First time away for a week from lil D
  • Was worried sick of leaving lil N behind. Given it is this one that says I love you, hugs me and sticks to me like glue.
  • Did not pig myself out at hotel buffer breakfast. This, a first, yes a first
  • Not feeling¬†awkward around the big guns
  • Able to carry decent conversations. No longer about the weather and taste of coffee. Hah!
  • Can’t wait to reach home. The fact is, reality awaits with a bang as usual. Arrrggghh the routine! Grocery shopping and what nots!

Still can’t wait! ūüôā


On a mission

not throw freshbuys, ever! Whenever I stock up on freshbuys, either I would be too busy to cook that week or the green vegetables would have wilt.

Therefore, with a vengence & also to be prudent with grocery expenses, I am cooking at home no matter how late I reach home, just in time for the boys to have their dinner. As long as the food is homecooked, I am happy. Its simplicity doesn’t bother me or rather no longer frets me.

I do rely on canned sardines and mushrooms. If I cannot even use those, what the heck! If I am going to be that fussy (which I am not, given I have nuggets, ready made burgers, sausages and all in the freezer), then I should start growing the produce myself!

Mid Year Review 2013

A note to self in 2013

I need to control my emotions more and not behave hastily and chew off husband’s head when it comes to ‘them’. ‘Them’ here does not refer to my kids! Almost there
Wake up early, really early on weekends Check
Spend time wisely and on things which makes me happy Check
Cook more variety of food, indulge in baking Check
Read more. Almost there
I’m happy to note that my tv viewing time was great in 2012 Check for 2013 too
Leave workplace at 5pm sharp. This is something I was unable to keep up even when I was heavily pregnant. Check
Not to be too aggressive at work and be nice to scheming idiots and those with hidden agenda So far so good
Do not have expectations when it comes to relationship. Perhaps, I’m just too romantic for my own liking or a sucker for wanting smaller things in life like just the two of us going for a movie once in a while. So far so good
Don’t eat too much and watch my weight. No matter how tempting my own cooked food is. Not there yet

New add-ons

  • It is alright to stop what you are currently doing to smell the roses
  • Reduce TV time and increase other activities for lil N In progress
  • Spend more time engaging friends So far so good
  • Learn something new, off character maybe!
  • Yoga asanas in the office seems to be on the right track.
  • If I could add another such activity for this year, that will be great! In progress
