Fun time, but no time to sleep !!!!

Hello everybody !!!! Its back to blogging time for me, in this wonderful New Year !!!!

So, how have you all been ???? I am sure, that you all had a great time, welcoming the New Year 2010 !!!!  Were you with family or friends ???? Were you partying or having a cozy time on the couch, watching the celebrations all over the world ?????

I had a wonderful time – it’s always family time for me during Christmas and New Year !!!!!

I had baked a wonderful and delicious Chocolate Temptation on demand from my girls and their cousins.  Even though I couldn’t take a picture at that time, here’s something that closely resembled my cake.  We had an awesome Christmas dinner !!!! 🙂

New Year was too good with fantastic family time.  It was wonderful being with the whole family of brothers-in-law and their wives and kids. What an awesome time we had.

In all this celebration, there was something I forgot to do.   Actually, I deprived myself of that luxury.  Know what ?????

Yeah, I forgot to SLEEP !!!!!!   ROFL @ my own statement, now !!!!  😆 😆

One mad week of non-stop activity, cooking all the time as everyone was hungry all the time, including myself  and most importantly talking, talking and never-ending talking.

The men were making fun of us – What do you women have to talk so much all through out the day ??????

But the moment, the men sit and talk about their nostalgic childhood and all – they are no way less than us, in talking !!!! 😆

I thoroughly enjoyed those talks which went into late nights, depriving people of sleep.  But no one was bothered about that at all.

I remember at this time, about that Tom and Jerry cartoon, in which Tom parties all night with friends and comes home to sleep. But the lady of the house, will want Tom to catch Jerry. But Tom will be so sleepy that his eyelids will close on its own.  He’ll try to keep it open with tooth picks – it won’t work. He’ll drink lots of coffee – even that wont work.  He’ll even tape his eyelids – nothing works for him. Poor Tom – Poor UmaS – I was exactly in the same situation. My eyes were drooping and begging me to just lie down on the next available cushion or shoulder, but I was not willing to go to sleep and miss out on the fun conversations that was happening.

Here is the Tom and Jerry that pictured myself in Tom – only the situations were different for me and Tom.

Only after New Year, when everyone went to start their routine lives, did I get my luxury sleep. And I slept like a log for 2 days.

Am feeling good to take on blogging and the New Year in great spirit and happiness.
