Mundance is good

January 25, 2007 at 11:15 p01 (Life and its pleasures, Random Observations)

Reno is coming to an end soon with floor washing & cabinet fixing scheduled for next week. The last 2 week of chaos and make-shift life adjustment for once had me craving for a bit of predictability. Mundanceness has never been so welcome.

The reno had yielded some lessons/experiences that are enlightening and uplifting. for example…

  • the neighbours are more friendly and dropping by our door step and enquiring about the progress of our reno. as a result, we know our neighbours better.
  • as our master bedroom is our only sanctuary, we are actually spend more time in it doing things that our parents used to do during those pre-cable tv and 24-hour McDonald. hopefully we will have some red-egg eating celebration by end of the year
  • we talked more and communicated better as we watch no tv and spending more time at home with each other. our relationship has actually improved over this period of time.
  • life can be equally happy and livable with less trapping of modern living & luxury. we had weaned ourselves of bathing with hot water, for the moment at least.

    It’s mundane and mundanity. There’s no such word as mundance, pal 🙂 Yeah, human beings are creatures of habit. They feel comfortable with things which are predictable. We may not like things to be the same and routine all the time. But it’s in routine and mundane things of life that we find security. When life is full of ambiguities, don’t know what’s going to happen next, then it’s also full of anxiety and stress.
