Anatomy of a Quote

A life lesson, courtesy of Grey’s Anatomy: “At the end of the day, faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don’t really expect it. It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed. The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important, happy ever after – just that it’s happy right now. See, once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you, and once in a while, people may even take your breath away.”

It’s The Final Countdown

Season 3 starts tonight and it is exactly 11 hours 40 minutes and 5 seconds before it starts. I am talking about Grey’s Anatomy of course. I am so psyched that I can’t sit still. And so my blogging about Grey’s will continue tonite. The radio has been playing “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol and it is adding to all the excitement. That and the teasers shown on TV. Nobody better call me between 8 (when they show a recap of season 1-2) and 10 pm!!!
I will of course write again later, after the show. Or maybe tomorrow when I have processed all the info. Whatever, I’ll just write.

Medical Drama Mama

I’ve always been fascinated with medical drama and have always thought I was going to be a surgeon. Of course before that I was going to be a teacher, then a lawyer. For now I would have to be content with watching my favorite Grey’s Anatomy characters discuss medical cases. I cry with them in moments of despair, frustration and lost lives but I also laugh with them in moments of triumph and ecstasy.
I watch other medical shows too like House, CSI and Nip Tuck but it is Grey’s that will be always be at the top of my list. For that I am thankful, for even in the small screen I can live my life vicariously through them.

It’s My First Day Alone

Yesterday was the first day I’ve been alone in a long time and I — (drum roll please) CLEANED. The whole house!!! I dusted, vacuumed, scrubbed, swiped, changed sheets, did the laundry, washed the dishes, and hammered some nails to hang frames. I’m weird that way, I guess. I can clean the house only when I’m alone. I’m not a neat freak but when I clean, I clean.
Cleaning hasn’t been one of my favorite things to do ever since. I’ve always preferred cooking or baking to any other household chores. But I do have my moments of weakness where I succumb to the calls of disinfectants, brooms and mops.
Today is day 2 of school and I am back to my regular routine. I am so glad! The day is gloomy and it looks like rain. Usually I feel sad and depressed but I’m not and I’m glad.
I can finally go back to going out by myself to shop, run errands and just browse. I’m free and I’m happy and I’m glad.
