My Life Is

a string of sitcom reruns! You that's what my life is reduced to now. H feels that being married means I should go from one adventure to the next. My biggest adventure these days is meal planing - "Should I make pasta for dinner? But the bag of beans has been sitting in the fridge for a week now. Maybe I should cut it and freeze it. That way I can cook it another day. Well, if I am going to cut it, might as well cook it. Ok then sambar and beans karamadu tonight"

But I don't want this to be a rant post - summer is finally here! Paying an extra $15 a month for a woods view from my apartment is finally paying off. I wake up to seeing lush green tree tops against the bright blue sky. The view from the patio is awesome and it feels like I am living in a forest. I want to have some pretty flowers in the patio - so if one of the few people reading my blog is a gardner, can you tell me which ones would do well? Husband dear wants to grow tomatoes. Any thoughts on that would be appreciated too

I have also bought a Sega Genesis and a Nintendo NES and I finally have a vintage game system put together. The guy who sold the Genesis gave me his entire set of games - about 20. So far I've played just Sonic the Hedgehog though. The NES takes me back ages. H and I used to spend hours playing Super Mario, Dr Mario and the such. And I used to read Archies comics a lot then. I used to see ads for Sonic the Hedgehog and Sega systems and somehow I used to burn with a desire to play them. So it feels oddly satisfying to play them now :-) Also I now can kick anyone's ass in Mario Kart Wii woo hoo! :-)

I was waiting for everything to be perfect before being happy. But life never is perfect. So I have started enjoying all the simple pleasures - one sitcom at a time :-)

Yeah rrright you can kick anyones ass in Mario Kart! Probably now....but watchout for the 'Game King' madam...he seems to be right behind you! The woods view is awesome indeed but that's just from the patio. I would rather have the pitch black curtain view from the bed room! And way to go babes. I guess its time that you returned my lazy shoes and stat hitting the blog more often!
