Lunch Menu 20.2.2018

Each day, I can now accept the fact that I'm a full-time housewife. At first, I felt a meltdown, because I've been working for over 18 years now. I never imagine that I would be a housewife so early, not even 40 yet. But, after a few weeks of feeling down, now I feel more energize and start to think that this is maybe what I really want after all. True, I have no income of my own now, have to depend entirely on my husband on money matters, but I think my life is more peaceful now somehow. I'm quite happy to get up at 5.30 am every school days, prepared breakfast, and see Qayyum off on the van to school. Then, I'll crawl up on my bed to take a nap until 8.00, wake my husband up and sometimes accompany him at breakfast, but mostly not coz I'm sleepy. Then, around 10.30 am, I'll start to prepare and cook for lunch, sometimes I packed lunches for Haqimie and Rayyan. Hang clothes outside, sweep the floor, wash the dishes... I maybe not a perfectionist when it comes to cleaning and tidying the house but I try my best. And amazingly I feel energetic too. Never thought I found happiness to be a stay-at-home mother.

Last night I had a talk with my husband before sleep, saying that I think I'm glad I wasn't offered to work at MD, because of so many reasons that I'm glad not happening to me. And I feel so relieved when my husband said he also think that it's good that I'm not working anymore, coz he said I'm less stressed and tired nowadays, the house looks quite organized, our kids happy to be home early after school, there's always dinner served early when he got back from work. Before this he was quite worried about those bills and all, but last night he said, we saved more actually. I think I'm blessed.

So no more whining about not working anymore. I'm happy now.

So today, we throwback our menu on 20th February 2018.
