OCD


Its official - I've decided that I suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder !!
It is something that I've been noticing in myself lately. Everything around me has to be spotless, organized and clean.

Today we had guests over for dinner, and I was constantly cleaning up after people. To see my sofa cushions strewn across the carpet, or spilled "daal" on the table is well....disturbing.
I totally freaked out when a kid wiped his hands with the table cover. I was irritated with his mom for her constant ineffective "nahi beta..", said with a stupid smile and indulgent expression !!!

I am still in a "pissed-off" state of mind.This reaction is not normal hubby says.
Sigh...whoever said life was easy :((

The Notebook

I finished reading Nicholas Spark’s ‘The Notebook’.
I read it’s sequel,’The wedding’ first and then came to this book. I had my first encounter with this author with his ‘Message in a bottle’. Many of his novels have been made into movies. By this, I remember a quote I came across in a bookmark that I got in Crossword once, ‘Never judge a book by it’s picture’. Nicholas has a way of twisting endings, which leaves the reader feeling a void, achingly touched, poignant and yet wanting more. As the wax melted so did my heart. Middle of the night I was crying buckets. 
Decided not to read love stories for sometime now.
