new year

I returned from a long vacation.  Visited my family in Indonesia and Thailand, and the in-laws in India.  Can't exactly call the latter a vacation.  But I was gone for a good 3.5 months from September to December.
And then I started my new year in still-a-new-place-to-me since I flew to Asia soon after we moved from Texas.  And instead of a long list of impractical resolutions this year, I decided I will keep only one resolution this time:
But I brought a small change in me.  I am trying to make things around me a little more colorful.  A little more bright, a little happier.  Instead of the plain and simple calendar that I have been making since the last 5 years, I am now adding some color to it:

Alok had searched and selected an apartment, and unpacked all the cartons on his own in my absence.  So it was a new-apartment-in-a-new-city for me.  I made furniture shopping lists, to-do lists, grocery shopping lists:
But he lived like a bachelor in my absence, so I had to organize the whole apartment and clean each and every thing around because of all the dust piled up.  This is the kitchen I was welcomed to upon my arrival, so you can imagine the rest:
But you know what is killing me more?
Can someone explain why this spray can be installed on the KITCHEN SINK but not in the BATHROOM?  I still hate the bloody toilet paper, and every time I see this spray in the kitchen, it reminds me of my misery.

However, this new year what I really want to remind myself and you all is to be positive and be happy, no matter what.  Count your blessings:
Let us feel fortunate with what God has blessed us with.  And let us do something for the less fortunate ones.  This new year, I hope to become a better person and wish you a successful one.

Happy new year,
