  • I'll be happy when...

    My husband is finally free of his leg problem and begins to walk without pain
    we move into a bigger office
    we finally get a 2 bedroom house of our own
    we buy our own farmhouse
    we can afford to go abroad on holidays twice a year
    I lose about 5 kilos and my husband loses at least 10 kilos
    when my younger son finally becomes a doctor
    when I start fitting into my old clothes without looking like a stuffed animal
    when I get a book published
    when my older son starts earning Rs one lakh a month
    when I can have a beautiful garden where I can grow my own organic fruits and vegetables
    when I'll be able to meet a few of my Cowbird friends either here or abroad.

    Of course the list could go on and on.
    What about you? When will you be happy? Or are you happy now?
