100th Post

Can't believe i have written 100 of 'em!

So right now, I am very pissed off with the 'Right Wing'. I think all sense and wisdom is out of the window. The way they are reacting to anything the President does, has no basis and certainly no wisdom.

I am talking about the Health Care debate
and Mr O's Back to school speech.

I have been told that some schools refused to show his speech but are taking the kids to see Mr Bush speak. A total WTH moment for me. So much hatred and so much anger the Right wing has.
Mr O, I think you should do what Bush did, do not listen to anyone, just implement what you choose to do.
I am not going to say i favor the Bill too much, but I hate the reasons the Republicans are giving, death panel, denial of service etc etc.

Ok so 100th post should be more cheerful right. So here's the cheerful note, I got 2 awards curtsy Anu. Yeaayyy..my first awards..thank you Anu :)





And I'd like to give it to Chandini. I think her posts are fun and keep me entertained :)

Being on the verge of becoming parents, G n I often go through self doubts. I more than G. Like are we going to be good parents, are the kids going to be well behaved, will we know what they want and when they want it. What will we do with them. My questions include and are not limited to, will they study, will they be A grade students (because there is no other 'acceptable' grade in my book). Will I be partial towards one child. Will I be the knowing, understanding Mom, my Mom was and is? Will I be patient?

Then there is more. Like this Sunday, I woke up, made us a nice breakfast of scones and dhokla and cold coffee. Ate it and went to sleep. I woke up at least an hour later and I was thinking to myself in a few months time, will I have this luxury? After that G n I sat and watched TV and chatted with friends on the phone. How about this one...will we have this? We later went off to our favorite Chaat place and gorged on some Chole Bhature. This one I think i can still have...no? Came and slept off again for a little bit and then we went for a walk and watched some TV, made dinner and later saw a movie. I am sure we'll do all the above minus all the sleeping I am doing right now and all the TV watching..right? Well..we'll see.

We cannot wait for the babies to come. So super excited, all the questions we have..i know we will find answers to them and I am hoping we'll be good parents. I guess the kids will let us know when we're not ;).

Entering 6th month now...time seems to fly us by! We still have to do the nursery. Though we wont be using it right away..but I'd like to decorate their room for when they are ready to live there.

G is in town right now..how very nice. I get back massages everyday. I put him through hell so much, I am so glad to have him. He doesn't complain :) I try and be nicer, and he knows that. I just wish I could do that more.

Oh well...time to go eat now. Babies will let me know that they're not happy with this delay ;)
