tag time!

Sometime back, (actually a long time ago) xh and neera had tagged me on the 10 things I miss right now, and the things I would want to do within the next 10 years...



I miss,

1. The twins (my 3-yr-old adorable, cuddable, kannada-with-an american twang- spouting nephew and niece)

2. The Bangalore traffic...(that's when i used to catch up with my friends)

3. Everybody in bangalore...sigh..

4. The divine chocolate desserts ...double sigh

I'm sure i should be missing more but what can you expect? i've just returned from vacation!!!



From the thousand odd things that i hope to do in the immediate future, I must

1. learn pottery...

2. practise meditation regularly...(telling my hyper mind to shush..is as difficult as expecting my boys to be still)

3. manage my temper...(a losing battle?)

4. stop featuring in Prats Feedjit list as a permanent visitor, because ever since my blog list vanished, i've been using her blog list to access my blog pals...and all it says is "Singapore arrived " some 10 times on her page...how mortifying!!!
:(...Either i stop reading my blogs and or i make my own list...sigh, I must sit and rectify that list...

5. be more thickskinned...(sensitivity is hazardous to mental health...)

6. be more time efficient

7. get my priorities right...checking my mail should really be the second thing i do in the morning, not the first...

Looks like i'm quite content with my life now...it will take a week of boredom to kick start things and make me peer into that list...meanwhile I've written on this before ....take a peek here. Gosh!!! Time is running out!!

Haha lots of people share at least a few points on that to do list - like manage temper, be more efficient with time and I think we all end up feeling like we are failing.

You should look at google reader. It's simple and clean. You might not even have to keep visiting multiple sites unless you want to go there and comment (it pulls in pics and videos too).

PS - even I wanted to learn pottery a long time ago. Today I figure I would not end up doing anything with that learning so not interested anymore. Blow glass (I think it is called so) was also something I found very interesting when I was younger and told myself that I wanted to learn it but it would be next to impossible to find a place to learn I think.

@7: even though I don't do that first thing int he morning, my mind is at it till I scurry past the first few things and sit down to check my mail ..such slaves of the internet we are ..sigh!!

WhatsInAName said...

What a cool list is that!!!
Welcome back girl and I sure missed you :)
... and when you succeed in curbing your anger, let me in on the secret as well :)

Sumana said...

Managing temper is definitely a lost battle till the kids are adults. Don't you think they fuel our tempers. You miss the bangalore traffic.. LOL man you must be kidding

Joy said...

You miss B'lore traffic??? I think your mind is still on vacation mode. Ofcourse try to control temper. But having one just indicated that you care for something to be done in one way.

Good to have you back. Hopefully your mind will join you in S'pore too, pretty soon :) :)
