In less than two weeks, Sherilyn and Cass will be returning to classroom learning! While I am glad that they can be back in school and not be cooped up at home and get hooked to their gadgets all day, I am a little sad that our long holidays will soon be over 😌 This kind of holiday happens once (or maybe twice) in our lifetime and it’s the only time in our lives that we get to be together lollygagging around the home 24/7 for four months.
Despite the anxiety over a bunch of uncertainties facing us, grinding gears with family members, the stress of having to cook 3 meals a day and cleaning up like crazy the entire day with a house full of occupants throughout the four months of house quarantine, in hindside, I’ve enjoyed the quarantine at home with my girls. We get to sleep in everyday, have no where to rush to, my Grab mom duties were put on hold and the girls have no exam stress. PT3 and UPSR exams were scratched out and SPM postponed to next January and that’s the biggest joy for us 😆
Things are slowly and surely getting back to normal. I wouldn’t say that this year sucks as everyone has been grounded; the grounding has pushed a total reset button in all of us, which is a good thing, as most of us took many things for granted pre-Covid19. The past 4 months have been a time of reflection for many of us. The only downside of the pandemic and months of partial lockdown for us is that it has sucked out a chunk of hubby’s savings just to keep his business going without laying off his staff and the household running uninterrupted. It’s like a game of Snakes and Ladders and this year we landed on the snake’s head and have to slide down to the bottom of the snake and work our way up again. If you’ve played this board game before, you’ll know that everyone has to land on the snake’s head at least once and get thrown to the bottom again. And like the game, we will somehow reach the top again, in a matter of time 💪
Our dinner: Japanese curry (the girls’ all-time favorite dish), ‘Yeh Heong Fah’ / Fragrant Telosma omelette (my favorite) and leftover radish+ mushroom+ carrot + pork bone soup from yesterday.
