Shoot, Shoot, Shoot

I am kicking myself for being silly over the weekend. I saw my senior from school in Kadapa in the mall. I couldn't get myself to say hi and talk to her. Why? Because I was feeling weird and thought she would walk out saying, "Who are you?" and also, it might have been hard for her to recognize me because I don't look like this no more. Argh! Some one from Kadapa was in front of my eyes and I walked off.. Boo hoo to me.

Anyways, V is feeling better and his nose looks nice too :). We went to the AZ state fair over the weekend. He had too much fun. Spent Diwali at home making good food and at night went to friends place for dinner.

Uploaded pictures here :).

ER - A Soap Opera of Our Own

V got teeny cut on his nose last night jumping up and down the bed. He seemed to do Ok after but we took him to the ER because well, as first time parents it's our right to rush to emergency because we don't know any better..lol. Doctor said it didn't need stitches but glued the wound so it would heel soon.

Have to give credit to V for being such a good baby. Doctor and nurses kept saying "Good boy" while doing their thing and V kept saying "Vittam gooboy" in between his crying episodes...lol.

Here are his booboo pictures.

I Got Me Some Goose Bumps

And no, it's not Prabu this time;). It's Mr. Hrithik Roshan and his movie Jodha Akbar. To think I wasn't going to watch this movie because it was too long and too epic'ish (that's not even a word, I know). I loved it and that's all I am gonna say.

So where have I been for the past month or two. Well the usual, busy with work, home and oh yeah visiting doctors. When I got half my thyroid removed last year, I thought at least half my problems will go away. Apparently not. I got few more new issues that I have never had and it takes few visits/check-ups for the doctor to finally say "Ms.Yinti, your thyroid is the issue". She also was not happy that I lost 8 lbs in 3 weeks, to which I had to say, "Dr, Baraz, my thyroid is the issue."

Work has been super busy. I always wondered how people work 12 to 16 hour days. I just spent whole month of September working 80 hours a week myself and now I feel your pain.

Me: Manager, please hire more people
M: Cannot. Economy is not good
Me: Give me a bonus then
M: Cannot. But we are letting everyone wear Jeans for the month of October as a "thank you for your hard work".

Ya know. I work from home in my pajamas because I have no time to take a shower on certain days till the clock strikes 12AM. What am I going to do with "wear jeans in October". I wish my house was on 3rd or 4th floor. I could so easily toss my work system out the window at times.

Mom and dad left for India 2 weeks ago on a 3 month vacation. My cousins are getting married and so they are visiting. I cannot believe I am missing it. I have already whined, felt sad about it so I am not going to do that no more :). I am hoping to re-live it by watching the pictures and the videos mom and dad are bringing back.

My cabin-fever has kicked back in again. Saritha left me to move back to Virginia (again, darn these husbands and their jobs). Madhavi went on a 3 month vacation to India. And the only other new neighbor that moved in next door was smoking something suspicious at 10 AM in the morning. So I am all alone unless the stress makes me wanna go join my neighbor;).

Went out for a happy hour today. Oh yeah, other people who work for my company live in Phoenix too :). It was so good, otherwise I think I would have called a therapist tomorrow..lol.

Vikram - well,the usual. He is getting naughtier and cuter by the day. Speaking both Tamil and Telugu. Understands English well so now Prabu and I have to talk in Hindi if we have any secret things going on. Eats lunch and dinner while watching the tamil movie, "Thiruvilayadal Aarambam" because the hero drives a bike and he loves one of the songs from that movie. Already has 7 pairs of shoes which proves again that he is MY son and my son only ;). Calls my high heels "Tuk Tuk shoes" because of the noise they make :). Says sorry by himself if he bumps into us. And finally will be turning 2 in 3 weeks and I have no plans on what to do that day yet.

Here is a recent picture of the familia :)
