Bye bye Bai…..

So, the latest news on my front is that my kaam-waali bai a.k.a. domestic help has taken a two month hiatus to visit her folks, back in her village. And no….don’t run away people. This is not going to be another of those crib-full posts that I have been posting lately.

I, for one, is happy. I have seized this opportunity with both hands. You want to ask me How? Go ahead. Ask me.

Ok. The chatter box that I am. You don’t really have to prod me all that much to spill the beans.
My bai is gone and now the baton a la jhaadoo (broom) is in my hands. The reason was my ever expanding waist line. Yeah…joining a gym was a better option, you would say. But since I give competition to the likes of snails, tortoises and kumbhkarans of the world, I decided this was an extreme step that I had to take.

So, no more bahanaas about gym timings, late work, blah, blah…I have to do the traditional jhaadu katka. Every day. Period.

Now, I am a fanatic when it comes to cleanliness and I really take to cleaning like H to beer ;-))
But only now did I realize how therapeutic I find, cleaning the house.
Moving all that trash outside the house is so symbolic of removing mess out of my life. I suddenly feel so peaceful. Calm.
And then comes the mopping part. As the mopped floor shines and looks polished, my heart misses a beat. It soars in the sky with a leap, and I look forward to life with a clean slate, just like the floor.


Once everything is done, I move around the house, double-checking and sometimes triple-checking, that everything around, is in order – the cushions on the sofa, the pillows on the bed, not a single crease on the bed sheet, not a speck of dust on the table, not a drop of water on the kitchen slab, dried bathroom floors, and my list continues.

And as I make sure that, indeed, everything is good to go and I am happy and satisfied, the door bell rings. I know it’s time for H to be home. 🙂

H: (shielding his eyes) Please get me my goggles….I can’t see anything….

Me: (visibly tensed) Arre, kya hua? Show me….I think it’s the dust in our eyes…..

H: No baby, the floor is shining so much that I can’t look at anything without my goggles. (wink, wink)

Me: Lol. LOL. (Beat him for poking fun at me.)

H: Ok ok…chalo…I’ll go and take a bath.

Me: (gives an expression as if somebody just punched my gut) WHAT? But I just dried the bathroom floors………………..

H: SO???? Nobody’s supposed to use it now?

Me: No, I didn’t mean that……… (visibly depressed at the thought of water on the floor)

I curse myself for having brought this upon myself.
It was so good having the Bai. I appreciated her efforts of keeping my house clean, but now I can’t stand nobody messing up anything and everything I just straightened.

H tries and keeps up with my paranoia of ‘cleanliness’ and I, with his requirements of using the bathroom and other places ;-))
Thank God for our peace keeping mission. Otherwise, my house would have turned into a battle ground (quite literally), and I, for one, would have NEVER been able to tolerate the mess ensued.

PS: People, please give me better ideas for loosing tummy fat 😛

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks

    First off I would like to say wonderful blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear
    your head prior to writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting
    my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend
    to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?

    Next time I read a blog, Hopefully it does
    not disappoint me just as much as this one. I mean, Yes, it was my choice to read through, but
    I truly thought you would probably have something helpful
    to say. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something you could fix
    if you weren’t too busy seeking attention.

    Lol!! 😀

    //People, please give me better ideas for loosing tummy fat 😛
    Tummy fat is little dangerous…..try Yoga…there r certain asanas for tummy and hip flabs….I tell u its d easiest way of reducing without using the Gym….

    I personally reduced it more visibly wen i was shifting from school to college…

    It just requires half n hour or evn 1 hour of daily yoga practice….initially it will b difficult…but no pain no gain…once u get accustomed for a week…later on u'll b comfortable!!

    results will b shown in months…in some 2 or 3 months…

    Keep urself away from cheese, icecreams, pizza n other fatty foods!! 😉
