then and now..

i miss those days when the laundry would miraculously get done.
i miss those days when tasty meals would appear on time.
i miss those days when cleaning up meant jus tidying up within the four walls of my room.
i miss those days when shantha aunty would help me spring clean, once every 6 months.
i miss those days when groceries would never run out.
i miss those days when i didnt have to watch my bank balance, and never had to worry about it running out.
i miss those days when life was simple.

but..
i love doing my own laundry. sorting it out, watching it roll rumble and tumble. and then hanging out fresh smelling detergent moist laundry.
i love cooking meals and getting things ready on time.
i love cleaning up after my maid, doing all the thigns she doesnt do as well as i want her to.
i love climbing on chairs, pulling out things from the top shelves, cleaning them out and putting them back, just to satisfy my obsessive mind.
i love going to the municipal market, feeling my way through the fresh vegetables and fruits and reveling in the many yummy things i can buy.
i love rationing an budgeting my purchases, and tactfully watching where i spend my money.
i love this slightly complicated thing we call life.
