My Daily Routine is ....

.... Something like this. Since I came back I have become the ideal person, I always wanted to be. Really!! I go to bed long before midnight and wake up around 6:30- 7:00am.

My first chore is to put hot water for tea and take my early morning medications while SH starts getting ready for office. Then I get busy preparing breakfast and pack lunch for Hubbz. SH leaves for office around 8:30 am. This is when I start with my, my day. I do Suryanamaskara and pretentions on staying fit with my on demand exercise channel.
After this I prepare my breakfast, which generally consists of milk and cereals or wheat bread, peanut butter and jelly and on some days,an egg. At 10 am I watch my daily dose of “The View”. This is one of my favorite programs and gets my vote for the best reality drama. I only started appreciating Barbara Walters on this show, which made me read her autobiography “Auditions”. But the main person who got me hooked was Rose O’Donnell and her obsessive nature to meddle into everyone’s business and the opinion everyone had of her including Donald Trump. I am still hooked once she is long gone and the groups drastic changes. People who know about the show will understand my enthusiasm about it. With Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Walters and the Republican Elizabeth Hasselbeck, enough of discussions and catfights. Also this show keeps woman who stay at home, have only weekend friends and dislike phone conversations, updated on all the hot topics of the day.

By the time the show is over I am ready to start with the chores for the day. Firstly, I take on the outdoor jobs. Post Office, Library, doctor’s appointments, grocery shopping etc. I come back home and this is when I dabble with my laptop, emails, social networks, deliberate as well as random curiosity researches. I chat with my friends who care to buzz me.

On days I do not have outdoor chores, I am busy indoors - arranging the dishwasher, washing and drying clothes, ironing shirts, vacuuming the rooms, thorough cleaning of the kitchen, arranging the wardrobes/cabinets/chests, changing bed linens, folding clothes, dusting, cooking. No I don’t have to do all of them every day. I have arranged all the chores according to the days and that is the only help I have. I don’t miss maid service, mainly because I will always find some flaw and then tire myself anyways.

Since I am back I have tried to give a slight twist to my eating habits. Before I begin my work and after my morning break is over I eat some fruit, apple, banana, pear or avocado. Sometime this is replaced with fruit juice. And in between, the chores, I find some time to prepare my lunch which is mostly leftover rice, veggies with curd. But if I have to cook something then it is generally uttapam or upma, and curd. Then I take my bath and sit down to watch Oprah Winfrey’s Show that airs at 4pm PST. This is the time I also do my creative stuff. I work on Photoshop, Illustrator; crochet, or knit- like I am doing right now. I am working on a men’s sweater. Sometimes I sit on my synthesizer and croon but that’s seldom mostly my music session happen when I work on my house chores when I blast the speakers.

On days when SH does not have classes he is home by 6-6:30pm and we have tea and samosas and pakoras together. But when he goes directly to class I skip the evening tea.
Our evening outings are restricted for now. Dinner is usually earlier than the Bengali standard time of 10/11pm and after catching Larry King and a bit of Jay Leno I am off to bed.

Ps: I blog anytime of the day other than sleeping hours. ;-))
