Ever noticed that one has cycles and mood swings always? I mean yesterday was cloudy and it rained. That was fun. For us in this side of the globe, rain is
a) Never enough
b) Never unwelcome
c) Never bad weather
I can not identify with stuff I read about rain being dull and dreary. WTF
We love rains, because rain for us means life! Chai Pakora time! I was thrilled.
The boys had gone out grocery shopping. No you cant call child abuse or human rights. Them stuff dont live in India. Besides I think its good training for them. My sons are house broke, they cook, wash clothes and grocery shop! I am too cowardly to get them to wash the dishes. I am scared that they would end up breaking them on my head! Never mind, they can do this much and will make their wives happy, its enough. But I digress.
Yesterday I was happy and since the boys werent around, I made myself killer pakoras and had tea pakora for dinner! I know I really push it!
Today is hot. The sun is out and its hot and sticky. I’ve got the blues. I want out. I am tired of parenting. I am tired of wondering what to cook, how to balance the money with the needs, all I want is to take off.
I’ve done it earlier. Just pushed off for a couple of days to recharge batteries.
My modus operandi is simple.
Check out the money in the bank. See where I can go and park myself. Only rule being that I dont know any one in that town. Take off.
Come back chilled, destressed and ready to put nose on grindstone. All I need is a room, TV, and of course enough vodka to pass out. Simple wants arent they?
Wonder how other people unplug from the daily grind ………
