* So I have been really sick all weekend long.It started off as a cold and then morphed into a really terrible cold and cough with a stomach bug thrown in for added measure. It naturally fell upon the husband to take care of me and nurse me back to health. I do give him credit for being a sweetheart and indulging me and generally doing a good job of being my caregiver but despite everything, I somehow could not stop wanting my mommy! This obviously did not go down too well with M but he was nice enough to not let it affect his care-giving duties. I shudder to think of when and how the bitterness will manifest itself!

* I have know M since we were in high school and yet after we got married, I suddenly morphed into this control freak and wanted things done my way. Thankfully, I realized my folly soon enough and learned to let go and take it easy. I was hoping that we both would influence each other and some of our positives would rub off on each other. Well, it struck me yesterday that the end result has been that I have imbibed most of M's negative qualities and made them ours now so there is no distinction! So I am now lazier and less prone to losing my mind over a sink full of dishes and M, he just remained the way he was. This was obviously not the plan I had in mind but what the heck, I am at peace with it!

Hello World!

Do you remember watching The Wonder Years? I totally loved the show and still manage to catch an episode or two on TV once in a while and enjoy watching it just as much. I think Fred Savage is the cutest ever and he managed to depict the pains of growing up so remarkably well.

I have had my share of growing up pains but its been a pleasant journey mostly. I met so many people with whom I have had very close relationships that lasted for a very short period of time and yet remain special to this day.I don't think of them very often. Once in a while though, a line from a movie or show or book or a remark made by someone triggers off memories and I am completely overcome by warm nostalgia. And when it so happens that the very person you were thinking about somehow happens to send you an email at that very instant and wants to re-connect, your happiness knows no bounds. You realize that there is still something tangible left in that relationship and you want to make a fresh start and forgot about the acrimony of the past.

Well, since it happened quite a few times over these past few months, I took it as a sign. So here I am, re-connecting with my blog and everyone in the blog world. I am back, baby and hopefully am here for the long haul this time! Well, time will tell but for now, I am just happy to be here :)
