Visitors

(L -R) Niece Mahima with Abner, younger sis Namrita and adopted sis Sonia (Aug. 2006)
Today I got a call from Sonia saying she is coming with Abner tomorrow.She will stay for at 2 weeks till after my Mom 's birthday on June 23rd. Had to get the house ready and do some shopping before that.Since the past 2 days we hardly got any electricity during the day. Couldn't watch an interesting episode of Indian Idol (it was the first time I was watching). Today was better but the broadband snaps because of fluctuating voltage.Anyway its all a part of life, so no use complaining.Helps to make you more patient.When we look at those worse off than us we count our blessings.

5 Fertilize my soul:

Adopted sis Sonia? Like a real adopted Sister ...tell me about it...sounds like you will be really busy for the next weeks...my questions come from the fact that I live in an adoptive family!!!

Indian Idol? I never thought about other countries having TV shows like this. We have American Idol. Makes me wonder if there's an Engish Idol, French Idol, Italian Idol, etc. Cool.

We don't have electricity problems they way you do unless there's a storm or a blackout. That would keep me away from the TV and computer more. I am trying to cut down on TV and computer usage and spend time with the kids. I think I am doing okay. I try to use the computer early in the morning or late in the evening.

Thanks for stopping by. I am glad that you can empathize with me.

I am a 40 year old unemployed student at the moment. Hopefully when school is done, I can find a part-time job. :)

Rebecca, Sonia was informally adopted by my folks and she grew up like a family member, we home schooled her.
Shari, your blog is giving me real courage to face my disabilities, and talk about them.Indian Idol is an Indian version of American Idol and follows the same format with a local flavor.There is a shortage of electricity production in some states in India that 's why we have power cuts. We pay our bills on time but it doesn 't make a difference.
