Yesterday night Aryan experienced his first Thunderstorm. When I say experienced , that does not mean that we were out under the sky. Thankfully we got in just 5 minutes before it started. Soon after , we could hear the noise of wind and falling leaves. Then of unbolted doors and tin sheets from the neighbourhood.
Initially Aryan did not pay any attention. Soon the sound of rain made the whole sound effect more horrifying.Aryan was having a confused look and was little distracted at times but then when I told him , all is well, he got little relieved.
It was not long when power went off. Now Aryan got too clingy to Mumma. The emergency light was switched on , but since this was the first power sutdown for the year , he was not able to understand the logic. He insisted on switching on the fan. When we told him that its not possible he insisted on for the TV to watch his rhymes.
I did not expect the cook and so was worried about cooking the dinner too, but Aryan decided not to go to his papa too. So Anupam made Maggi for instant relief and we decided that we would think about dinner later. When the storm settled we got out and inquired with the security , only to know that there will not be any power whole night. A tree has fallen and taken a poll along. Anupam decided to walkdown to a near by restaurant to fetch some dinner.
Aryan remained clingy to my shoulder /lap till the time he slept. Thankfully he slept peacefully in the mosquito net for the rest of the night.
Electricity did come later in night , only 1 phase though. Today morning also Aryan was not comfortable with the darkness and I finished the work somehow.We read the paper to know that a lot of trees fell down and took so many electricity polls along. One tree fell on some’s Honda Civic and the car got crushed. I was wondering what would have the owner went through. I mean a new car and that too Honda Civic 😦
I hope we will have electricity by the evening.

MummyJaan bestowed me with this lovely award. She also digged down to the reason for the award and the creator of the award said so :
“This award will be awarded to those that are just nice people , good blog friends and those that inspire good feelings and inspiration! Those that care about others that are there to lend support or those that are just a positive influence in our blogging world!”
I am flattered. I never thought someone thought that I have a positive influence in out blogging world 😛 or for that matter, any influence all together.
Thank you MummyJaan for calling me a good blogging friend and a nice person too, I wish everyone around me think the same 🙂
I am also obliged with the privelege to acknowledge some of the other blogger , who I feel are NICE …ohh there are so many ..
I knew it for long that people have been confusing me with two different bloggers , but today I realized that this confusion has been huge. It all started when I went into hibernation due to some personal reasons and while I was away , there cam two different active bloggers namely “Aryan’s Mom” (who writes on her son Aryan’s behalf) and “Swati“. Phew..what more to ask for.
Both the Aryan’s are of same age too. When the other Swati commented on my blog , people thought I have been commenting on my post 😛 I considered changing my name from Swati to something else , but then that would have led to further confusions.
So recently when the Doula Gang (as in few mommy bloggers around) arranged for a online baby shower for the MTB’s(Mothers to be) and when Sue got confused with me being “Aryan’s Mom” , I realized that its not only she , but a lot of them from Tharini to Gauri.
So all the (CONFUSED) ladies out there , here I solve another riddle for you.
And yes , here is the blog (Times of Aryan) for my son Aryan.
Women will never be as successful as men because they have no wives to advise them.

I get impatient when :
-> I am too sleepy to be awake.
-> I have to read too long posts from my favourite bloggers (I don’t want to skip and I don’t want to read :P)
-> Someone lies on the face. I cannot tolerate that.
-> Auto rickshaw meters are faster than their speed.
-> Aryan gets unreasonable.
-> When one person (G) in office , opens his mouth. He is too irritating to tolerate.
-> When people show off.
-> When TV is too loud.
-> When I read/hear about injustice and find myself incapable.
-> When I am talking and Anupam does not reply.

I was BORED yesterday. Told this to a friend and she thought I am Vella , as in without any work. But NO , I had work.Search for the word “Bored” on google and you will get 76,000,000 links, from bored.com to i-am-bored.com.And they tell you fun things to do when you are bored for lack of work.
But what when you have work to do, people to chat, blogs to read and recipes to make and yet you feel bored ??? I was BORED of the other type …yeah the other type ..when you have so much to do but yet you don’t want to do anything. You feel as if the switch is OFF. You get what I mean. People usually don’t. They tell me interesting things to do. But all I can do at that stage is to SLEEP OR EAT. Yeah , I eat when I am bored …now you know the secret of my good health ..hehehehehe.
Funny is that I am never bored without work , coz then I can do so many things , make my long pending calls to old friends , sleep , eat(again), find and try new recipes for us or Aryan (food ..:-P) , blog , find new blogging friends, watch some stupid movie on TV , Listen to music…so much and so how can I be bored without work.
But worst is that my switch gets off when I have so much to catch on. And why does the switch gets off is what I am still to figure out. I know a few reasons , like a fight with husband or cancellation of my weekend plan or cancellation of any long awaited moment or office politics , but sometimes its none of these. Sometimes I am off the mood JUST LIKE THAT , even on weekends. Is this NORMAL 😛 or I need to see a Physco ..Solitaire please help!!!!
Editted to Add : THIS BLOG IS MORE THAN AN YEAR OLD …AND I FORGOT TO WISH IT A HAPPY BIRTHDAY 😛
