Life. That's what happened.
And also, I lost the password to my old email address, created a new one thus somewhat forgetting the existence of this blog. I should move right?
Anyway, my litte Iris is now 2.5 years old. And yes, the term Terrible Twos DOES have a reason for existence. Its....crazy! This small human, now very mobile and somewhat trying to communicate and doing things her way. Well, she can't have that all the time. Orelse she will survive only on Pepero Chocolates, Milo, french fries and my boobs (yes I'm still breastfeeding because
We had MAJOR changes in our lives now. No I'm not pregnant and probably not anytime soon (I'm still traumatized by my birth, let me learn to be a better mother with one first) . We finally moved house! Had our first nanny drama (that will be on another post). Had (or currently) having our first major home mishap (our water tank literally bursed and flooded the whole house). But the one that's really the icing on my cake (is that even correct?) is that,
I'VE PASSED THAT BLARDY ACCA EXAMS!!!!!!!!!!
7 years of exam-hood. A huge burden felt as if its being lifted off my shoulder. Or mind. I'm glad its over. Or else it would have been like a pebble in my stone if I quit. It would annoy me till I die. #shainevergiveup #betterlatethannever #supermom.
So what now? What will happen to my nursing attire business? Is it still alive?
Yes, it's still alive, just not online. Now since hubby is transferred to business development from finance, his time at home drastically reduced. And Iris has bloomed into the most curious and active toddler in the world, makes it somewhat impossible to sit at the laptop without her hijacking it for ChuChuTv entertainment or Peppa Pig (hence the absent in updates here and the online shop). I've been selling it offline at bazaars and some from friends who contacted me directly. Aside from that, a boutique in Perlis have requested to feature my brand there so yeah, we are still alive. Yes, I know, put em up online asap! Truthfully, my production and sales has been alright, but I'm having problems in marketing and web. As the USD has currently risen drastically, I'm looking out at outside options to move it elsewhere to another web provider. The current provider is US based so we had to pay them for their service monthly, in USD. So thats one thing that I need to iron out right now.
What about ACCA? Does motherhood and this online business means that I've exited myself from career working life?
I'm in the market now for a job. This long break have somewhat changed me. Iris may be driving myself up the wall today but in not so near future (sniff), she will eventually grow up. The scariest thing that I fear now is the Empty Nest Syndrom. My husband is busy with work hardly home much, one day, my daughter too will leave the house. What will happen to me? I'm scared of that day. Security is what I want now. Have you seen the price for a good education these days? And the price of our cost of living these past 2 years has escalated tremendeously! My business is still at its growing stage, but so does my Iris. Me going back into the rat-race is mainly for her. And now, since I no longer have to schedule my time for ACCA classes and lectures, life is somewhat, relaxed. I've succesfully breastfeed her for more than 2 years now, InsyaAllah her health is better coz truth to be told, when she does get sick, her recovery is super fast! I believe in the power of my milk, yoyza! So I think its time to focus on life now. Pray that a good offer will come to me. InsyaALLAH.
