Then, we landed…

Then, we landed. I mean the flight. It was a short flight under 50 minutes. All I did was finish the complimentary coffee that the kind air hostess brought me. When I asked her for a decaf coffee she inquired “how many cream and sugar?” I said three cream and six sugars. To that she exclaimed and said, “ huh… so you want little coffee with your sugar.” Little does she know that it is my birth right to have little coffee with my sugar as an Indian. 😉 I reached my brother’s place even before “D” reached home, the efficiency of human innovation. 🙂 As I looked out of the window, the landscape below looked absolutely gorge. There were a lot of trees and at places, the land extended over the waters. I could see lot boats at the dock, looked like the scene from the TV show “Fairly legal.” The lead character in the show Kate Reed lives on a boat.

I got out of the plane and had to wait at the baggage claim. It worked out well because my brother was running late. I wonder what kind of brother runs late to pick up his sister? 😉 I gave him an ear full about it, need to show who the boss is? 😀 (more…)

So, how did it all go down?

Anyone would think that everything is going fine, after reading self-inspirational post “Defeating my biggest enemy ever” (find it here), and meeting my pastor (find it here). It was not. I became a zombie two days before my move. I stayed up all night playing my favorite game “Borderlands” on X-box 360 and watching a show at the same time. I could not/ did not want to sleep. As I said before I wanted to cancel my ticket and just stay home.

The day before my flight “D” offered to stay home from work as I looked pathetic. I said I will be fine, and I can manage, but he insisted. I realized that maybe I am not as strong as I want to be and so, he stayed home. We were supposed to go get groceries and make some food for “D,” but I was very tired and slept all day long. I wanted to make some food and freeze it so; D can have food for at least 15 days. This would give him time to get used to managing without me. (more…)

“D” got promoted…

“D” got promoted not at the job, but he is promoted to the level of pastor approved for “R.” He is very happy about it. In one of my previous posts (you can find it here) I talked about what my pastor thought when I first discussed “D” with him. He played devil’s advocate and was not really sold by my “D” pitch. I also said that I did not know if his view on “D” changed over the years, but now I know that he approves of him. It is not like we are desperate for his approval, but it is nice to have. (more…)
