what is it like when your nurse falls ill??

“I’m bored.. I don’t want to lie down anymore”
“you sat up for quite a while this morning ma.. just lie down right now..”
“I feel fine..” she starts to turn..

2 hours later..
“I’ve had it.. I’m getting up now…”
“you’re going to feel even worse if you get up.. just relax in bed!”
“but I’m bored..”
“so read a book”
“I can’t read.. it gives me a headache”
“okay come and watch TV”
“its those ridiculous saas bahu rona dhonas all the time.. there’s nothing to watch on tv”

I switch on my music but my choice of songs annoys her
“don’t you have any hindi songs of the kind I would listen to??”

5 minutes later, she’s sitting up again..

“I’m going to take a short walk around the house”
Her Older sis(OS) jumps in at this point.. “will u just shut up and lie down.. The doctor told you to stay in bed for two weeks!”

I look around from the stove to see her standing in the kitchen door
“what are you doing?”
“why did u walk all the way here? You should have just rung the bell and I’d come”
“I was tired of lying down.. what are you making?”
“nothing really… paneer for your snack”
“I don’t want paneer… give me a knife and fork, I’ll cut an apple”
“you really shouldn’t sit on the dining room chair.. it’s not healthy for you”
“I don’t care… feel fine... now just get me the knife and plate. Cutting an apple is not too much work”

“I TOLD you not to sit in this straight chair mom.. now come lie down..”

“but I’m so bored…….”

she had a surgery last week.. been home for two days..
mothers are IMPOSSIBLE to mother..

on the line....

"I'm sorry sweetheart.. please.. please give us another chance... i love you.. i won't survive a day without hearing your voice.."
she just looked at him as his voice trailed off.. he was hyperaware of everything around them suddenly.. the hushed voices of other people in the room, his own thundering heartbeat.. the absolute nonexpression on her face.. she simply looked at him..
"i'd die if i'm rejected now.. who will ever take me seriously if she doesnt accept me now???" his thoughts were bordering on panic at the sheer nonresponsiveness of her reaction..
she simply looked at him.. lost in thought..
he didnt move an inch.. his knees were trembling.. almost giving out.. should he have gotten down on his knees to beg?? he suddenly thought.. maybe she wanted to see total surrender.. it would've been dramatic to say the least... maybe too dramatic.. he steeled himself as he brought his eyes back to her face... waiting for some change in her expression..

slowly her hands twitched as if involuntarily.. her arms rose away from her sides.. was she...???? he was hoping with everything he had now.. taking half a step towards her as her arms rose higher... did she step towards him?? his thoughts were all aflutter at the sight of the smile on her face...
his numbed mind registered what sounded like cheers in the background..
her lips parted...

"bravo!!! that was amazing! thats it.. YOU get the lead in my play!!"
her applause joined that of the gathered audience...

another mention of my 'twilight' obsession

i have a habit of visualising the charecters of any book i read.. specially teh ones i'm really really fond of (read obsessed about)
so naturally... like just about every other girl who entertained fantasies bout the 'perfect' vampire boyfriend. i visualised Edward Cullen... (*swoon*)

except that the guy who actualy played him in the movie is SO not like my fantasy edward... so i was like.. blehhh
today.. while indulging yet another sudden obsession.. i stumbled on THE guy who could play edward in my head... the actor/model who plays romeo in the Taylor Swift song 'love story'.. the title of the post is a link to the youtube video of the song...

btw... the "sudden obsession' aforementioned is this song... love story- Taylor Swift... heard it on the radio this morning and promptly fell in love with it.. its soooo sweet... its like a teenager's take on romeo and juliet.. the video showed me my dream edward.. the song itself gave me a whole morning of singing and skipping.... coz by some grace of god a friend had the song on her cell n happily gave it to me via bluetooth.. (i LOVE my phone!)

i've lost count of how many times ive heard it over n over n over again today...
so.. all in all.. a good day.. two obsessions taken care of... :)

taylor swift- white horse

say you're sorry
that face of an angel
comes out just when you need it to
As i paced back and forth all this time
cause i honestly believed in you
holding on
the days drag on
stupid girl
i should have known, i should have known

that i'm not a princess, this aint a small town
i'm not theone you'll sweep off her feet.
lead her up the stairwell
This ain't hollywood, this is a small town
i was a dreamer before you went and let me down
now its too late for you
and your white horse to come around

maybe i was naive
got lost in your eyes
and never really had a chance
my mistake,
i didnt know to be in love you had to fight to have the upper hand
i had so many dreams about you and me
happy endings
now i know

I'm not a princess, this ain't a fairytale
i'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet
lead her up the stairwell
this aint hollywood this is a small town
i was a dreamer before you went and let me down
now its too late for you and your white horse to come around

and there you are on your knees
begging for forgiveness, begging for me
just like i always wanted but i'm soo sorry

cause i'm not your princess, this ain't a fairytale
i'm gonna find someone someday who might actually treat me well
this is a big world, that was a small town
there in my rearview mirror disappearing now
and its too late for you and your white horse
now its too late for you and your white horse, to catch me now.....

WAY BACK INTO LOVE- Music & Lyrics

I've been living with a shadow overhead
i've been sleeping with a cloud above my bed
i've been lonely for so long
trapped in the past i just can't seem to move on..

i've been hiding all my hopes and dreams away
just incase i ever need 'em again some day
I've been setting aside time
to clear a little space in the corners of my mind

All I wanna do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love

I've been watching but te stars refuse to shine
i've been searching but i just dont see the signs
i know that its out there
there's gotta be something for my soul somewhere

i've ben looking for someone to shed some light
not somebody just to get me through the night
i could use some directions
and i'm open to your suggestions

all i wanna do is find a way back into love
i cant make it through without a way back into love
and if i open my heart again
i guess i'm hoping you'll be there for me in the end

there are moments when i dont know if its real
or if anybody feels the way i feel
i need inspiration
not just another negotiation

i know its probably the soppiest movie that i've seen in a while.. but there's sopmething amazing bout the way this love story develops... Music & lyrics.. its bout how two people can help each other out of their shells, how they can make the other person believe in him/her self again.. how tehy can fill the spaces in each others lives...
and most of all.. its about recognising where your strengths and failings are and how the otehr person can help you through the tough times..

and how you need to show someone that you really care about them.. specially when they feel let down...
sometimes you just put yourself on the line.. if only to show the other person that you want them to know what they mean to you...
