Marriage and there after...


I can hardly feel any difference. This maybe because I know P and his family for quite a long time now. Che! This is the side effect of a love marriage! There is nothing "new".... OK somethings are very new but I will not write about them *ahem*!

Initially my in-laws were supposed to stay with us. But now, my sil has delivered a baby boy and hence they are taking her to Mysore for few months. So I get to stay with P alone for few months and torture him as much as I want to!

Our new house is simply too big for me now! I have to come running from the kitchen every time I hear SRKs voice on the TV to the drawing room... Yes, this will help me loose some weight .. which is the ONLY good thing about it.

For the first time employed a maid for house hold work. She seems to be a little too free around the house. No shying business at all.... should learn to control her a little bit atleast. Any pointers?

Yappa! Reading the above lines, I look like a complete housewife material... oh my God! Somebody find the missing "miss" Shark.... now I can see only "Mrs" P........

Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd.

What did you expect? I will write the movie review in between my marital story? No Chance :)
  • For the first time got to actually "stay" with P and realised, there is lot more to him than what I have understood in the past 7 years! ufff who can understand men!
  • He simply hates Ghee..... and we were in those parts of India where Ghee is the staple diet ;-) So I could see poor P make a poorer face every time we had to have something to eat!
  • He is simply overly generous! what with 50 or 100 Rs tips every time we get a room service. Was he trying to show off in front of me of all the people?
  • Every time we had to travel to a different place in the car, we invariably had a fight. Why you may ask? I love to sleep while travelling and he obviously hates that. But tell me my dear friends, how long can you keep conversing with a person? I would finish telling my part of the stories for the day and promptly go to sleep.... he would neither tell stories nor let me sleep... isn't this unfair?
  • Ah! This is the best part. We were in Shimla, skiing and guess who fell 3 times? That was P!! and I didn't fall even once though this was my first try at it :-D
  • I was the better champion in horse riding also... I am not patting my own back, but P was sitting on it as if he was sitting on a bed of thorns.... and after a long ride of 1 and half hours he could barely walk properly!
  • But then even though I scored so many points in the other categories, he is simply the best in photography. He took some amazing pictures of me and mother nature and I was at my horrible best while taking pictures of him...
  • Come Manali, we were promised the "best" by the travel agent (obviously) but we ended up in a resort which didn't even have a room heater and the temperature was -5 degrees!!!
  • Agra was a dream. Taj Mahal is simply unbelievable! Even though we were standing right in front of it, we could not believe our own eyes. The beauty of it is simply mind blowing! But unfortunately Agra as a city is at it's dirtiest best! If that this is the way we treat the city which houses one of the 7 wonders of the world, then God only should save us... really!
  • World record - We did shopping in Delhi for almost 15 people of both our families in a matter of 3 hours. Wah Shark Wah!
Well, Shark aka Mrs P is now back!!!

Finally the details about the "Wonderful thing"...

I know! I have been going on and on about "something-wonderful" in few of my previous posts :) Finally it's time to announce it, though I am sure most of you have guessed it already!
After a 7 year long wait, I am finally getting married to P! The D-Day is 9th February 2007. I am not sure how happy he is, but I am at least on top of the moon :) or do the kids these days say something like ninth cloud? whatever!
Thinking about it, my life is going to change completely!
  • I can no longer come and go to office as and when I like it. What with family responsibilities and all that stuff!
  • I can no longer have Maggi for dinner! P hates it! So I will have to cook something at least for him... :(
  • Once my in-laws join us then it's total bliss :) My mom-in-law loves to cook and I love her cooking, so... you can imagine the rest ;-)
  • I (think) I will have to take "permission" and all... if I have to go somewhere, like out-of-station kinds... oh my!
  • I have heard from my married (read experienced) cousins that husbands are extremely sensitive. E.g: In my mom's house, if my mood is off for no particular reason, all I have to do is tell my mom not to disturb me for few hours and I can brood/ sulk/ read a book or do whatever in my room and nobody bothers. BUT it seems husbands are not like that, they will think any mood-off is caused by them! (which is very sweet...) and will try to rectify the situation, when it is not required to do so :). Well.... I will have to learn to live with it!
  • The worst of all... I will now have to share my bathroom with a man! This is one place where I spend a lot of time and love decorating it the "female" way.... now I can't overdo it! For now I will adjust, but once we have our own house, I will make sure I have my own separate bathroom :)

The list can go on and on, but I think it's better to continue it after some real experiences :)

P.S: If you are in Bangalore, and would like to attend the great shark's wedding... mail me, and I will send you the invite with pleasure ;-)
