    I have been a member of this website past almost six months now. One of my favorite forums is Beautiful kitchen and spotless home...I happened to visit Kkrish’s thread.”Time management-cooking, cleaning and exercise…
    While I was reading the looooooong list of chores these ladies have accomplished ….I was feeling weary already reading it and had to drink lemonade in between to restore my energy to go through the entire list….I was feeling anxious not being able to have super woman quality anymore...
    Anyway one day I could sleep …..May be an hour ....and that is not even a sound sleep …was dreaming about these super women…
    Aging has completely captured my momentum….at the age of 60… it is not easy to rejuvenate sanity…
    (actually I am 58 years old but past five years I have been telling I am 60 years old as I get confused with the numbers without 0 in it….)
    Multitasking, planning, organizing skills….they used to be the beauty of my crown…..I used to get compliments for my extraordinary talent…..not any more though…
    These ladies made me remind of my ancient time ……..My motivation got to the point …that I started planning from Monday through Saturday to accomplish my tasks on Sunday…..yes, I need about a week to plan out everything to cook, clean and exercise….. So I could write a post in Kkrish thread by documenting my proficiency…..
    Most awaiting day….Sunday arrived….I could not sleep the entire night before….excited to make my dream come true…
    I was waiting for my husband to leave for work….(as husbands always like to keep us occupied for nothing….right…? )………So I could begin my great venture….running around with full of enthusiasm…My husband was wondering…. I was too hyper…..he thought I had two cups of tea in the morning…...actually I was warming up so I do not lose my spirit….
    As soon as my husband left I made several sticky notes of my planning list and found all possible spots in my home to make them visible …..Not to waste time ….kept it handy everywhere…
    I started with cleaning my bed room….trying to move stuffs around…..I found one of my favorite CDs….thinking music will keep my brain fresh and jovial…and will turn me into happy-go-lucky…woman…
    I decided to play it in my music system in my living room….I came downstairs almost skipping several steps…
    The musical air spread all over my body and it made my legs taking steps in rhythm…I was feeling amazing….
    After few minutes I realized about my ignored bedroom……I was feeling little dizzy by moving around in a musical rhythm…
    I needed something to drink to get back in my spirit…
    I decided to make Almond, walnut, fig milk shake...
    Thinking ….almond will boost my memory…
    Walnut will monitor my heart…
    Figs will give me energy….
    I made delicious milk shake…while drinking….turn on the TV……
    I saw the advertisement for washing machine ….and realized about my piled up laundry….rushed to laundry room….turned on the washing machine….
    Found my laundry room was begging me to straighten it…….
    With my all zeal I started undertaking my task….
    Within few minutes my husband called …I rushed to the kitchen where I had left my phone…
    He was asking about the dinner plan…..I was at the peak of my spirit….I told him I will cook….Panjabi dish tonight….I was able to visualize the smile on his face …after all I did not waste my 35 years of marriage in vain....
    I went to my pantry to check whether I had required grocery for cooking Panjabi dish…
    Considered to organize the jars of the spices, lentils, beans in alphabetical order to make my life easier…
    Suddenly my washing machine screamed for help to get relief from the burden of wet clothes…I rushed to transfer clothes in my dryer….I saw unfinished laundry room….my countdown began to clean it…
    I found one old mirror there…..when I looked into the mirror…..found wrinkles and lost luster on my face…..I decided to apply face pack on my face…after all I am not that old …right…?????…
    Cucumber face pack gave me coolness on my face and mind…it was soothing and calming….I had a twenty minutes power nap…..went to bathroom to clean my face……cleaning bathroom was on my list too so I started cleaning it after beautifying myself....I was half way through I ran out of energy….realized to drink smoothie from my refrigerator….while drinking and listening to the music… thought of changing CD in my CD player……I opened the drawer……. Instead….. started sorting CDs and DVDs so we could watch movie in the pleasant evening after delicious dinner made by me…..there I saw my karaoke machine…It occurred to me that I could sing as good as Lata Mangeshkar…..let me entertain myself with my mind-blowing singing…. ….as I was in full fledged mood…..I decided to sing……MERA PIYA GHAR AYA O RAMJI…….. was feeling as beautiful as Madhuri Dixit…..inside and outside……suddenly my front door opened……I saw my actual PIYA entering the house………suddenly my romance started melting….….it took my breath away
    My bedroom was crying for help…
    My laundry was stretching hands to transfer it in dryer…
    My jars in the pantry were mad at me for not sorting out them in order…
    My bathroom turned its back on me for not getting enough justice…..
    My CDs and DVDs were fighting with each other to get enough room to rest…..in peace…
    Left over milk shake made the cloudy coating on my blender jar…
    Laundry room showed its distress as it blocked my entry with the stuff lying around on the floor…
    My husband took a tour of my kitchen…..
    I took situation under control with my great endowment….!!!!!
    I asked my husband…can we order pizza today..???

    Bhavna Dear
    Please do not lose sanity and all! You being my MENTOR NOW.. I need to take better care of you right?

    What you have narrated is something many of us women has been through some time or other in our lives.
    For me its not just some time or other its many times and more!

    Whenever I plan really motivated to get superwoman like chores done, always, always things happen to derail me beyond scope. And in the past I remember not even having the profound wisdom of ordering pizza!

    I enjoyed every line of your smooth narration.. starting off with how you felt motivated and inspired.. btw I need to chech out that forum too:) You then even roped your kind husband in ; Him wondering if you had more than 1 cup tea! How sweet of him! My hubby would know I had more than 1 glass of wine!

    I also waltzed with you through the house between laundry room, store room, kitchen, peek in bathroom! and then cd.. and my beloved music.. what a wonderful song selection at that.. and finally ordering pizza to save the day..

    So no wonder you are my mentor from now on. In all of the above which can I isolate to say you impressed me more with.. so I am in awe.

    Take more good care with milkshakes and cucumber packs so you can be back to inspire me more:):):)

    Hey Bhavna, my friend......

    What was it you wrote about...surely it was not about you?? Since when have you fixed secret cameras and bugged my phone pal?? For....it is ME that you have written about! Every bit of it!

    Bhavs, I take the liberty of calling you so for I feel like you are my soulmate.:)...Bhavs, that was too too good! Here I am, past mid-night sitting are reading your post as I could not get to sleep. Why could I not get to sleep you may ask. Okay, you may! It's only because tomorrow I am going away for the best part of the day. So when I rest in bed, all the chores that I have not done and have to do and must be done keeps running through my mind and all of a sudden I want to cancel my outing for tomorrow. But then, it is not going to help for if I stay at home, it is the same old thing. I do a bit of everything and then every room in my house keeps calling me for I have not completed any thing!:hide:

    As my guilt kept me awake, I thought the best thing to do is ignore the calls from my home and log in to IL for comfort and how right my instinct was!! Here I find you and your snippet.:thumbsup

    Hey, I am not alone!!:)

    L, Kamla
