i need a break

Happy Friday and post-Valentine’s Day, everyone!

I hope you have had a great day to love and to beloved. It’s just a normal day for me as I don’t take the over-sensationalized hype of a Hallmark holiday. Everything is just too expensive. For instance, my colleague and I went to Sam’s Club yesterday to get stuff for work, and we saw bouquets of rather ugly flowers being sold for $51 bucks each, tax not included. So damn expensive! For our dinner last night, I made pot roast. I made a damn good melt-in-your-mouth pot roast. Husband and PP ate well, and both belched out a “thank you” at the end of the meal. 😀

As for a gift, my husband got me a beautiful silk scarf. I appreciate it more than having flowers.

And yessss, my husband came home on Tuesday morning; life is slowly returning to normal, or by whatever measure of normalcy means. For once, I get to sleep in a little bit, and in the evening, I can spend a little more time tidying up the house as O takes over the boys for bedtime routine. The best part, though, is to have O dropping me off and picking me up to and from work, like…door to door service with a personal chauffeur. It will not be like that for long, because he is off to more traveling the next few weeks. I just want to cherish the moments of being pampered.

The Lunar New Year celebration was wonderful, but I did not have enough time to enjoy it due to having the flu. For the most part, I did not eat well. And in my family, you’re supposed to eat very well before, during, and after the New Year…but I missed out on lots of good food. Don’t worry, I will make it up later on, once I am done with this event on March 2.

Just so you know, I am still alive!

Below are two photos of food for ceremonial offering on the last day of the year before bridging over to a new year.

  1. O trở về rồi thì mấy mẹ con cũng đỡ khổ hơn xíu há! Nàng khỏe lại nhiều rồi hả? Mùa này, cảm cúm hành tả tơi quá xá. Nhà Cún cũng may là tụi nhỏ mấy ngày Tết cũng bớt nhiều nên đỡ khổ.

    Thấy nàng viết lại là biết đỡ chút rồi nhen.

    Nghỉ ngơi nhiều và giữ gìn sức khỏe nhen em yêu!

    hugs & kisses 3 mẹ con nè!

  2. khổ quá, nhà nào cũng đồ ăn tá lả, mà mình chỉ được nhìn thôi chứ có được hưởng miếng nào đâu mà nước miếng vẫn cứ ròng ròng chẹp chẹp
