Ponya? not i

Standard

someone (coughusbandcoughhack) said that i might have made myself seem like a little bit of a Ponya in my last post by talking in a complaining type of a way about certain things that are definitely first world problems.  firstly, let me tell you that my Ukrainian relatives say that while there is no very specific definition of a Ponya (i don’t even know the spelling of it), it kind of means a princess,or someone who fancies themselves pretty fancy. so, now said person is teasing me and calling me Ponya… which is pretty cute, but i wanted to make sure nobody else thinks i’m a Ponya.

my kindle is a second generation kindle that i have had for three years, and even though there are many new models out there, mine is still perfectly good and though the battery did something funky, i will not be replacing it.

also, my Birkenstock sandals are so well-worn that i am going to need the soles replaced and the cork glued before we go back to India, and they also have blueberry stains from when i wore them blueberry picking last year.

so, i am not Ponya-like, i just have a few things of good quality, and i use them and use them and use them and use them until i can’t use them no more.

that is all.

About namaskarambaby

We are a BC couple who are about to start the process of having a baby using a gestational surrogate in India. We would like to share the process, so the steps will be clearly laid out for other couples who would like to know about this journey, as they may be in a similar situation. We also will likely stay anonymous, as this is a bit of a private process, and we are so early on in the process, that we aren't even sure it's going to work. "Namaskaram" is a greeting in Hindi (the official language of India), which is appropriate for people of all ages... I guess it's similar to Namaste, which is commonly used in the yoga community. This is our first blog, so bear with us. Stay tuned.
