You know how these little kids get it from their parents for their mis-behaviour – “You are grounded for today evening / You are grounded for a week” !!!! Then those kids cannot go and have fun or play outside. They get to stay inside their room or home and do boring things, according to them. Even not allowing them to watch TV or using the comp, is termed as Grounded. All this is only movie knowledge. I’ve never seen it being implemented.
But yday, I was grounded. From morning 9am to evening 6pm, I was grounded and I couldn’t do anything, which I liked.
I was not allowed to sit in the comp – the reason for the unanswered comments. 😦 😦 😦 Will do it ASAP.
I couldn’t even watch TV. Very sad – missed a lot of my favourite cooking shows. 😦 😦 😦
Baking – Na, Na, couldn’t do that too. 😦 😦 😦
And to top it all, I was forced to follow something for the whole day, which the whole World followed for just one hour on one fine evening.
Did you get it ????? Yes, there was no power the whole day and I was literally feeling that my arm was missing.
It was a forced Earth Hours on me. 😦
I felt terrible, unable to read or reply to comments. 😦
My mobile was drained of charge and got switched off on its own and I couldn’t do anything abt it. 😦
Was also dreading that water will be cut, due to lack of power – what if those ppl forgot to put the motor and fill the water tank ????
To do away with the forced boredom, I took refuge in a book called Confessions of a Shopaholic, which my daughter had got from the library. I couldn’t believe that I was reading that becos I just totally couldn’t relate to that character, Rebecca. The way she avoids her bank statements and still going on using the card for buying – I just couldn’t imagine a sensible Finance Journalist doing that. Anyway, that book was a saviour yday, when the power was taking revenge on me.
The school is closing today. My girls will be at home, till June first week.
So, whats the big deal ?????
The comp time is not mine alone. I need to share it with them. So, I might not get my usual time to blog-hop and blog and comment and reply.
I need to cook, whenever they are hungry – no specified meal times.
I also need to teach them a few things related to cooking and baking. I’ve promised them that I would do that this summer.
So, have fun all of you and I’ll catch up, whenever I get to be near the comp. 🙂
Here’s a toast to a CHILL SUMMER to all of you !!!!
