Lists, lists and more lists...

'Make a list' says my DH for everything! Most of the times I disagree with him (need I mention that?), but sometimes (??) it has helped me a lot. Yesterday I had so many things on my mind and wanted to jot down what all needs to be taken care of! I wrote down in my journal and voila...4 are already down!

Umm...Indian style chinese fried rice

 Just to get out of mundane food, I made Indian style chinese fried rice for dinner! Bingo, super hit, loved the taste. I wish I had green beans too!! Better luck next time :).  Planning to prepare watermelon rind dosa and heerekai chutney tomorrow.

Jr. had spinach paratha and curd rice (both are his fav). He hadnt eaten rice in almost 4 days, and was excited to have curd rice with protein layer (cream on the milk). Currently watching Ben10 Alien force! 

BTW, when I was in DWD this time, I saw a board infront of a fast food dhaba - Fride Rice!! LOL!!

It rained for a change!

If one wants enjoy rain, they should move to Arizona! It rains about 7 inches a year! We had enough of triple degree temperatures this summer!! It has been raining for a couple of days now.

Re-living My Childhood!!

What a relief that schools have re-opened and Jr. is in 3rd grade already! Kids grow so fast. After 6 weeks of vacation in India, it took quite a while for all of us to get out of jet lag. Almost 10 days after we landed in US were pretty bad since Jr. was home all the time not knowing what to do!! All he had was TIME IN HIS HANDS!! At that point, I realized why our parents said 'Saali yavagara shuru agatado ivatardu'! Trust me, every minute I was awake, I recited the same old line for nearly 10 days!

And Yey... the school re-opened on 10th. Our home came back to living in peace from pieces!! Its been two weeks since Jr.'s school started. Two days Jr. came back from school and was telling about his day. He said 'Today we had a table change for most of the kids" (his class has 5 tables with almost 6 kids each and each one has an assigned spot. Places are generally changed after every quarter). It kind of surprised me as to why would his teacher change the places in the first week of school and I asked him the reason. His reply was 'Because if you are friends with other kids on the table, they would be chit-chatting and not paying attention to the teacher'!! Both of us burst into laughter!! It reminded me of our school days where we used to talk all the time (esp. in high school).

Cheers to our kids who remind us of our childhood everyday!!

Cool drinks in hot summer :)

Jr. got Crystal Light (sugar free) fruit punch powder to mix with his water! The other day he found out that if he dumps the entire packet in a glass full of water, it will be a blob and when he punches it from spoon, blob will burst and he could play with powder! Well.... I have wondered how come boys come up with such messy ideas in day-to-day life!!
