Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 161
Lin Lan returned home that night and upon unlocking the courtyard door, she found that Erwang had fallen asleep with a stick leaning on the door frame of the main room.
Maisui was holding a large shovel and lying on the kang with wrinkled clothes as she had also fallen asleep.
Sanwang and Xiaowang were not worried and slept soundly.
Lin Lan felt some warmth spread in her heart as she patted Erwang awake and put him on the kang to sleep.
Erwang rubbed his eyes and woke up when he saw Lin Lan, “Mother, you’re back!”
Lin Lan smiled, “Go and sleep on the kang.”
She was so excited that she couldn’t sleep after getting so much money, but unfortunately, Han Qingsong was no longer with the children, so no one shared the good news with her.
Although Erwang had a delicate mind, he was still a child after all. He spent the entire day fearful of people coming to knock on his door. So when he got up on the kang, he was out like a light, not even bothering to take off his sandals.
Lin Lan took off his straw sandals and fetched some water. She twisted a towel and wiped his feet before taking off his clothes and placing him into a comfortable position.
The child slept soundly, so he didn’t react no matter what Lin Lan did to him.
She then did the same actions with Maisui.
After the children were all cleaned up, she went to the yard to check her surroundings. Then, she locked the gate and closed the chicken coop, all the while thinking about getting an aggressive dog to protect her family.
Ordinary local dogs wouldn’t be able to do the job since they were easily bullied and wouldn’t be feared. She would at least have to find some strong and burly dog with aggressive blood.
There was no money box at home so Lin Lan could only think about it. She temporarily divided the money into several parts and wrapped it in rags, stuffing it in some inconspicuous place that the children wouldn’t rummage around.
In fact, there was also the Credit Cooperative at this time, but she didn’t believe in it which was why she didn’t opt to deposit her money in it.
The Village Cooperative, Supply and Marketing Cooperative and Credit Cooperative were the three main powers after the founding of the country. The Village Cooperative managed agricultural production and some water conservancy construction. Supply and Marketing Cooperative communicated between the urban and rural industrial and agricultural products, whereas the Credit Cooperative performed duties towards the agricultural bank.
However, given the function of the Credit Cooperation at this time, Lin Lan felt that it was better to not place her money there. There was a chance that she wouldn’t be able to get it back after all.
Because she was too excited, she lost an adequate amount of sleep. She felt that lighting the lamp was going to cost her oil. She thought that she was rich now and she was a wealthy woman, so why was she afraid of spending so much oil?Even though she was indeed rich, she didn’t have the tickets needed to buy kerosene, so she couldn’t be wasteful either.
With that train of thought, she continued letting her mind wander elsewhere.
Now that she had the money, she wanted to find a way to exchange tickets and coupons for certain materials, provide the children with good food, make clothes, and buy shoes so that they could go to school to learn and become a promising person in the future. With that, she would be able to retire successfully. Thinking about the children, she also thought that she should do something. With such capital, it was better if she started something as well.
