Payday..and getting ready to go back to work

December 14th, 2012 at 10:48 am

Today was payday. My pay was better than my normal maternity pay due to the fact that I have some holiday pay included.

I'm home alone tonight.. Hubby suggested I get a takeaway since my pay was better than we thought. Well I checked a few menus and decided that I definetly wasn't going to pay 7 for a portion of curry! So, I bought a rogan josh sauce, two chicken breasts and microwave rice. Sauce and rice were 1 each, chicken was 3.

My extra money will be going towards CC debt. I was thnking this morning that it's going to be difficult to reach my basic goals next year... but I will give it my best shot.

I go back to work in a few days after nine months of maternity leave. I was meant to be going to a friend's for lunch today but I cancelled because I have a lot to get ready for going back. It's little things like making sure SG's meals are ready for hubby that are taking up a lot of time. I'm not looking forward to going back but I know I have to.

I need to think about meals next week. Hubby will be at home while I'm at work, and I don't finish until 5pm. All hubby can make is baked potatoes. I guess I could have something prepared for the slow cooker the night before?

    Maybe you could spend a little time teaching hubby to cook something basic like chili? It's not difficult. If he can follow directions and measure stuff, he could cook some things.

    Yikes! it's soon to be 2013 and the men need to pull on their 'big boy' pants and pitch in on household tasks. Women's work and men's work ideas left in the last century! If DH can read, he can cook. One idea for a gentle start would be to hold a once-a-month labeling + expiry date and 'filing' in fridge freezer is flexible and let's you have 'curry' anytime you like since it holds flavor well.

    Wishing you well on
