very unique wedding same as all others

this weekend i was busy in attending a weeding. normally i skip these kind of events or let my husband go. but this time i had to go as i know this father of the groom very well ,a very elderly man and he was persistant that we should attend it. Moreover he is my mother-in-laws relative .Combining everything ,vedict is i have to go... phew.

I made train reservations ,its a 5-6hr journey from my place. Mistake one: i opted for train, i wish i used some brain and would have hit road in our car. mistake 2: my husband Drove all the way to railway station and parked it there. i asked that parking guy how much it costs he said 120 for a day. Ok.. but those buggers charged 280 bucks for that.

another big mistake is not to book 2A or 3A. Its a sleeper. its a chilly and windy night. our berths were so cold and even though we managed to close all windows ,some how its very chilly and windy. and asusual with kids esp with my 13 months old i could hardly sleep.

Marriage: this guy wants to show how he can make this even the most talked in family circles. His son was working in Australia. He invited his austrailan boss and coleges to this wedding. they all flew from there. it was a three day marriage and a hybrid marriage with groom comming on a ghoda (rare in south Indian marriage and especially in our community) and he arranged a disco . next they they wanted to touch base lost traditions it seems, got the bride in a palanquin.
i heard people talking that you know what my grandmother also came in a 'palanquin'.

i felt very bore. I really hate attending marriages. I don't like to get dressed up in benaras or kanchi and gold .May be i'm not good at that. I prefer cotton to any other type. Anyway marriage was grand and every was talking about. and some people were busy in finding what went wrong. and some were showcasing their ornaments. and some in making matches,by bringing their most eligible bachelors and bragging about how much they earn. some times its really fun to watch this. but most often you get interrupted by some aunties ,talking to you .

i feel that waste a lot ,trying to show off to people whom we really don't care.

2010 restrospective

2010 for me:

Personal life: now i'm more organized mother . It was tough to leave my kid when i come to work. but slowly got adjusted . More matured in thinking. normal fights with my family members . getting a maid at home is one good thing i did. it eased lot of headache and stress from me. Playing with my kids is real stress buster for me. I'm really wondering how much patience i'm showing these days. really enjoyed a lot with my kids this year

professional life: interesting , confident . Quit my old job ,joined a new one. But don't know if its a right decision or not in long run. But got to do new things. moved towards people management than technical stuff. Improved in decision making process.

what should i look out:
1. Diet control: eating more sweets nowadays. I don't know i used to hate sweets,but after pregnancy i'm just loving it. I should restrict it

2.Exercise: not at all working out. excuse i'm having is baby. I'm soo busy with this little one,was not able to work on. But still if i really want to ,i can make time for it right? my tummy is sagging and is at 30-36 . I'm able to sqeeze into my old jeans ,but sagging tummy is not good. in tight fits i still look like 3-6 months preggo

3. No harsh words: yes, no harsh words esp to my family members...again on my list

4. sleep well: its hard to get a full night sleep. This girl is still making me wake up in the middle of night.
