busy again

So after 3 months of slow moving, easy going routine , life is hectic once more. My son is now over a month old MashaAllah, his "Apa" loves him very and is constantly trying to pick him up. She still believes we should let her pick him up like one of her teddy bears.

Oh the 2-1/2 yr old "Apa" is becoming too naughty, i sometimes wish her parents were not soo pain in the neck when they were kids :)

So i decided that since im home for past 2-1/2 months lets try to get that Xbox up and running again, found out that my 110v power supply is burnt as someone plugged it in directly on 220v, so had to get it changed, then the DVD drive was not working , had to get that fixed as well, and some small updates all in all after spending something around the range of ~$150 and buying some additional games i was now ready to play.

And then i accepted an offer from a place where i start coming Monday, so office from Monday. I wonder what life is trying to tell me....

Its really Ironic, My "wish" to get more time to play was "Granted" by downsizing yet i still do not get time to play with all the job hunting i do all day long.

I would rather not play the game at all i think

Dear God,

When i said i wish i had more time to play my xbox, i did not mean to be laid-off.

Oh well... too late

so once upon a time there was a small white box, a bit rectangular with roundish crooked edges and a X mark on the front side with wires coming out fro the back. That particular box had given me company in many a nights , be it rainy or hot summer nights. The many hours i spent with the box are beyond count.

Yet with all the closeness once i had with that item, i haven't seen a glimpse of it once let alone touch it with my had , to feel its warmth , its soft hum , even those dreadful , dreadful red blinking lights on the "X" .

And now that gears of war 3 is out i wish i have time to play my xbox once again :(

Heard a small whimpering cry the other night , reached over and placed my hand on my daughter, saw she was awake, told her its okay,

"bed per ana hai ? " {do you want to come on the bed ?}

small voice "haan" {yes}

me : "Ajao , Kiya howa ? " {come , what happened }

"Honey Bee a gai thi" {a Honey Bee came}

taking her in my arms : "pir ?" {then}

"keh rahi thi mera hap-pap khana hai" {said it wanted to eat my food}

laying her down so now she is lying on my chest

me : "phir kiya howa ? app ney kiya kaha?" {what happened next ? what did you tell it ? }

" main ney kaha naheen " { I said no} , "phir woh mera hap-pap kha gai" { then it ate all my food}

me : "phir kiya howa ? " {what happened next }

"uss ney kaha Thank you " {it said thank you}

End of dream , and she went back to sleep
