I am hungover, I had one too many glasses of what passed for sangria last night. I met some nice new people, danced with C, talked a lot and had a good time. Haven’t had a night out like this in ages, was a nice change. But I wouldn’t mind never seeing red wine ever again. This outing should keep me going for a while.
I hear shouts of Jai Telangana outside, I can hear the national anthem being sung by children in the school down the road, I am living in India’s newly formed 29th state. Yesterday, I asked my helper what she thought about the split, how would it change her life? She said, “What difference does it make to me, I will continue to live and work like I always have.” She further added that the only people who will benefit are the politicians, “now instead of politicians from Andhra eating up the money and buying up land in Hyderabad, the Telangana politicians will.”
The husband gave me a pink iPhone 5c a couple of months ago. It was a surprise gift for our one year wedding anniversary. And now I cannot imagine my life without it.
I Facebook stalk and blog on it, I have become an Instagram addict thanks to it, I read on it, I stay connected– it has become my companion and entertainer. And when I am really lonely I talk to Siri ( this might be a problem). Anyway, I am glad to have an iPhone in my life, I finally get what all the fuss is about. Yay for iPhones!
Today is your birthday but you spent it taking care of me. Making tea for me in the wee hours of the morning, checking in on me while I slept the day away, making sure I ate something, pressing my feet and even hugging me in my sick state. Have I told you I love you, I really do. I am so lucky to have you in my life. I am grateful for you. Happy birthday my handsome, kind, funny and amazing husband. You inspire me and make me a better person. xx. Love always.
