One Weird Combo!

One of the things that amuses me no end is the new food combinations my husband comes up with. Come to think of it, there's nothing weird really! He just likes having non-veg with everything including idli! Idli and chicken curry anyone? :-)

He finds my having yoghurt and 'thoran' with chappatis kind of odd. So I guess I have strange eating habits too.

Temme about your weird food combos! Maybe I can try 'em out when I'm bored of food and eating (yeah, that does happen sometimes!) ;)

It's a Wonderful Married Life Afterall!

I can't say it was easy at the start, but the good thing is now I'm getting used to the whole new routine. From being entirely dependent on others for my needs, now there's a person at home who is dependent on me for some of his needs. It was overwhelming to say the least at the beginning but now the whole routine has started to sink in just like I hoped it would.

What's Cooking?

My cooking experiments have been a success so far.. or maybe he's just damn good at lying! ;) I find cooking a lil more tiresome as compared to washing or cleaning and like Sumi experienced there were times I just wanted to tear my hair out coz dishing out a decent meal seemed to take so much of my time!

My dad never had much of an appetite so I was quite taken aback when everything I cooked (and which I had thought would last for the entire day) got devoured by my darling husband within a matter of minutes. I have clearly misunderstood a young(?) man's hunger. Yeah, at times I wished he had my dad's appetite :P

Another thing I found out is that you hardly feel like eating the stuff you cook! This makes me seem like a person who has been deprived of food for days at parties and get-togethers where you will see me stocking up food to last for an entire week or so till the next grand party. I researched and researched (not so much!) and apparently other housewives are facing the same problem. Needless to say, much relieved after finding out ;)

Home Is Where The Heart Is

Since I'm the youngest it goes without saying that I'm the most pampered in the family. I have the sweetest mom who keeps serving me something or the other every one hour or so. I have a dad who gets me anything that my heart desires. It's hard not to miss all that when you are away from your parents -- as a newly wed especially. But then that's how life is! I guess 95% of the time we miss our parents when we're away from home and there's very little we can do about it other than let them know that we're doing happy and well in our new little world.

I look forward to talking to them even if it's only for a few minutes or so. Mom always ends her conversation with 'You both are happy no?' and dad is his usual silent (but happy) self usually questioning me about what I cooked for the day etc etc. I make it a point to mail them at 9 PM sharp at night with all details so they don't have to miss out on a thing even if I'm not able to call them for a day or so.

Living-in With The Husband

We are both in the 'knowing each other more' phase right now. We fight, we get on each other's nerves (which is but natural since we're with each other most of the time) and then we make up. Then there were some discoveries -

I found out he sleep talks most of the nights.
I found out that it's more difficult to make him take his cough syrup on time whenever he's sick as opposed to a child.
I found out that he has a big heart. It was cute seeing him check my temperature every now and then when I was sick couple of days back.

This new life is different but I guess I wouldn't have it any other way! :)
