An attempt to control my living expenses

Measurement is the first step that leads to control and eventually to improvement. If you can’t measure something, you can’t understand it. If you can’t understand it, you can’t control it. If you can’t control it, you can’t improve it.”

Month Of March-2007 In My Life

March month of 2007 is very memorable in my life.

29th day of this month was when I realized one of the most important dreams of my life. yes I got married to Sailu on that very day.

I didnt find time to blog in that month.

First 15 days , I spent dreaming about visiting Sailu on 17th and was busy working from BT office.

On 16th I left BT office by 7 to catch 9-15 Infy bus to Marathahalli.

On 17th , I went to Hyderabad [ My first flight ( GoAir) after I missed SpiceJet on 28th of Jan ] and disappointed to see Sailu suffering from Chicken pox. I shopped for my marriage that evening at Lifestyle.

18th, I spent time with Sailu and met Sudhakar, Gopi,Subbu, Srinivas, Chinni at Anupama for lunch, went to watch Okkadunnadu movie and then came home by evening.

19th, I flew back to Bangalore, bought Suit and Sherwani at BF.

20th, 21st and 22nd I continued going to BT office.

23rd I bunked BT office to pack my luggage and complete my pending chores.That niht I caught Cab to Airport and went to catch SpiceJet Hyderabad flight. Happy to get that ticket for 99 paise and very happy about leaving for marriage and very ver yhappy that filght took off on time!

24th, I was in Hyderabad Airport , sleepless but didnt bother much as I was in very very happy mood. Caught Air Deccan flight to Rajahmundry. Very very surprised to see Air Deccan flight taking off on time. Surprised to see the pathetic condition of Rajahmundry Airport.

25th was my groom-making day. Enjoyed every moment of that day.All our relatives started coming to our home.

26th , 27th went normal. People busy in marriage arrangements and me busy talking on phone with Sailu.

28th was Sailu’s bride-making day.

29th was our MARRIAGE DAY. A very very special and unique day in the lives of Chaitu n Sailu. The dream which we started dreaming from October 18 2006 was realized on that day.
I felt very happy. That was the end of all the hardships we faced, all the worries we had about our marriage , all the cryings and all the doubts we had disappeared officially on that day.

30th and 31st also went very well as we were new couple and everyone was tearting us in a regal manner.

That was March of 2007 for me!

Engagement and Aftermath

Got engaged 2 weeks back on 4th Feb 07.

It got preponed from 7th march 07 due to my probable onsite travel.

All are happy and it’s been memorable for us both!

Marriage date has been fixed as 29th March and am busy pooling money.
