this


Saturday morning, the first day of the last month of the year. my cousins  and friends abroad have put up their christmas trees and hung up their stockings! i have not begun to think of 2013, but, if there were three wishes i got as a gift, i would first ask for me to be a neat freak. if only!

and, the second wish would be for me to wake up (a tad smoothly) early in the mornings. i can jump out of bed on school days, but otherwise it is right next to impossible for me. 

i think, no, i feel, quite strongly, that if i could master the two habits of waking up earlier and putting things back in their place, properly, 40% of my problems would disappear. my mind would feel as open  as my clutter-free surroundings. and, the rest of my problems... oh well! nothing is in my hands is it?

if you find a way to get those wishes sanctioned, share the secret with me too! i know its super tough with a full household, but one thing that keeps me sane is the 'just 5' rule each night... i put away either 5 things or tidy up for 5 whole minutes, depending on how tired i am each night before i sleep... slowly makes things easier...

Sindhuma - do, do. i am begging of you...

arundati - i have tried the "just three" rule also. it doesn't work for more than three days, at the most...

after she swishes her wand here, i will send her to H'bad :D

yes, a friend gifted from S'pore!
