A Daily Routine !

What is a daily routine like? Many of my friends always ask me what do I do the whole day as I have no kids of my own to run after.And having been around kids and had my own share of experiences of what it is to take care of kids and teens,I always wonder what makes it so busy for mothers who say they hardly find time to breathe around them.Maybe Im wrong..who knows right ! I find it a joy actually taking care of kids,all it requires is a certain discipline I suppose.My mom did,I did...anyways Im here to talk about my routine.

Well,Since Im a housewife...Im the maid,the cook,the wife,the friend,the girlfriend(ahem...romancing !) to my husband,aunty to the rest,tution teacher to the kids and friends to my friends.so many roles to play (except the working woman)..hehehehe.....

Besides this...I wake up and give a good solid moment (half an hour) of pause to my body.Not very young anymore ,so have to give a little rest to my loose back.

Then its all about what to cook.Every housewife and cook I guess wonders every morning what has to be cooked for the day.Had lentils yesterday,so lets cook this veggie,or not this one and not that......It drives me crazy.I tend to call my husband and ask sometimes what would you like to eat.Rarely it will be like make this specifically,most of the time it goes like,"Cook whatever you want rey,Iam busy !" and the fone is shut.Then its all about crying over onions,peeling garlic wearing gloves (Im allergic to it),ginger,and then the 45 minute or 1 hour cooking time.It can be a drag sometimes but having a fussy fussy husband makes it very difficult.All he has to do if he doesnt like it..nah! I dont like it..Im eating eggs.and I go all upset ,eat some and pack it in a tiffin and keep it eating a little everyday.I have this guilt trip I travel to..that goes ting in my head when food goes to waste.I picture poor hungry kids in africa and then end up eating it or beg for forgiveness while discarding it.Eases my guilt a bit.crazy huh!Anything to avoid being bad.

Then it laundry ,which every other day.We change clothes like 2 yr old toddlers.Im fussy about this.Oh theres a stain here,a haldi stain there,oh tea drops here,etc and off they go into the machine.Mine is a semi one,so have some put an effort into it.Dont like automatic,very boring and takes a longer time than usual.With men its easy.They change only when asked to.Otherwise they are comfortable in it for as long they have them on.

Then theres the bathroom.Has to be shine and has to be dry.Dont like to see even a drop of water.So that like 2 times a day.With guests,I go crazy...I check the bathroom every now and then.

Then theres dishwashing.That like hundred times day.Its plates,or cups,or spoons or whatever.after every meal,after every tea.And anytime my hubby decides to do some cooking,that means an hour of cleaning and washing down the whole kitchen.He is a fabulous cook but a lousy cleaner.hehehe...thats what Im here for right !

Then theres mopping,dusting,wiping,etc.

Oh then there's this few hours I dedicate my life to the computer and TV religiously.Come on...I try to keep in touch with friends no matter what.I make time for it.And the telly is like my best friend.Im listening to music the whole day and yup,I never miss a few comedy serials.coz this gives me a chance to unwind and relax and laugh like a hyena as freely as i can.

Today I have to pay a visit to our great embassy here to get my passport.So lets see how all that goes.Gotta go.spent too much time online.

Wondering what has she written here.chalo yaaro,ye tho meri life ishtory hai....ek din ki.

  2. Yeh sabki story hai. U r d perfect spokesperson for the very specific category called homemaker. No matter where, every woman’s biggest nightmare is the question, “what to cook today?” See, this is one reason I hate cooking. There’s just NO end to it.
    And though I am no Monica like you, I still have to do the usual ‘at least once’ daily ritual of cleaning & mopping. Urgh…

    But I must say that, once everything’s in order, it does feel good.

Beauty secrets : Multani Mitti

I was 20 when during my monthly eye brow shaping,my beautician was like you should try a facial.But I refused As my skin has been always too sensitive and the marks of anything and everything from simple burns to blemishes takes years to fade off.That's when she told me about multani mitti.As usual I didn't pay any attention initially but she was like,you can clean your face weekly with this mud pack made with rose water and your skin would be simply clean.I tried it whenever my eyes caught hold of the pack in my cupboard.Then 10 years later,it again became a staple in my cupboard but now I use it every week.

What is Multani mitti?

Its a type of mud,smells like clean mud and feels like mud on your skin.I reckon if one uses chemicals like bleach on the face,this would be a lovely soothing alternative in your beauty regimen.

I buy this chunk of of this rock like thing and sit at home and break them into small pieces and grind them in a mortar and pestle.I was scared to use my gr…

Foods to avoid if you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Eating fruits and vegetables may help to prevent rheumatoid arthritis. A study from the Mayo Clinic showed that women who ate diets higher in fruits and vegetables were less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis. This study doesn't show that eating fruits and vegetables will improve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis; however, everyone should eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.

There are some foods that may help you feel better by reducing inflammation. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids may help to reduce inflammation. Choose foods with healthy fats such as fish, walnuts, soy, canola oil, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds. Here's a list of my favorite anti-inflammatory foods.

Camel

You must be wondering what the heck has she written about urine.Is it one the tests she had taken or some disease.

Actually yesterday some friend of my husband told him that eating camel meat stew is beneficial for people with muscle and bone problems and that very soon he would make me feast on it.I personally love camel meat,its tastier,lighter than beef,its just a beautiful meat but its a little more time to cook than the normal meat.So I thought why not find out the benefits of camel meat and while doing so,came across this article about camel urine benefits.

Don't go yuck people,I think in India,people bathe in cow urine when they have some skin infection.My brother and I did this as very small kids.We had been on a holiday to India and developed some skin eczema or chicken pox or measles....so as usual my granny said try this as well when the western medications failed.I know camel meat may not be available in India as commonly as out here but there is nothing wrong in know…
