Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 54
“Don’t talk about useless things. Were you the one who pestered Old Three to change his career? Are you forcing him or asking his leader to complain?” The old lady thought about it all night. Ultimately, she felt that it wasn’t the army who forced her son to return, but it didn’t appear as if he wanted to return on his own accord either.
In her opinion, although Old Three was a little dense since childhood, he was very filial and would never cut off their source of cash without consulting with her.
Then, this act could only be said to be the act of the other one from the third family.
Lin Lan shook her head, “It’s not me, but one should change careers when they get older anyways.”
But she was still stunned as she thought of something.
If it weren’t for the old lady who reminded her about it, she wouldn’t have thought about it either.
Looking at Lin Lan’s appearance, though it seemed like she truly appeared as if she didn’t know anything about it, the old lady thought that it was too absurd for her to remain clueless.
Even this shrew can fool others now.
In the past, besides throwing a stupid tantrum, this shrew wasn’t capable of lying and didn’t know how to hide things from others either.
Lin Lan hurried out when she saw that the old lady had nothing to say. It seemed that Old Lady Han was very concerned about Han Qingsong’s change of career.
In the afternoon, she didn’t have to go to work. Hence, she went back to the huts to clean up so she could move in when the renovations were done.
There was nothing much to bring over anyways— the family’s tattered clothes could fit inside a small wooden box and a basket was more than sufficient to put the remaining bits of their belongings.
But in the future, she would have to cook and pack some food. She might have to buy some utensils too.
Many people didn’t like to split up their families, but when they did, they had to have two copies of everything(1). And at this time, iron pots, noodle jars and grain jars were huge expenses.
(T/N: Refers to having two of the same things because they’re living in two different places. Example, they could just share the pots and pans in one house to cook, but now they had to get their own since they live separately)
Some people couldn’t separate their families even after saving up for a few years, so they were really helpless.
This also showed that Han Qingsong’s salary, and his allowance for the family, was actually a pretty large amount.
Lin Lan went to the Brigade to take a look at the huts, surprised that the kang was actually set up. They would soon be able to sleep here in a few days.
“Mother, do you like it?” Xiaowang trotted over with his glasses in one hand and a wicker stick stuck on his arm.
Lin Lan nodded, “I like it; the golden dens and the silver dens are not as good as my own dog kennel, after all(2).”
(T/N: A saying that no matter which sort of luxury place you live in, as long as it’s not your home, you would miss it. In short, there’s no place like home)
When one gets married, they should live separately from the family as there should only be one wife in a family. If there were two housewives, accidents would happen.
Seeing that Dawang was there, she went over, intending to say a few words to him. Who would have thought that Dawang immediately left when he caught sight of her.
Sanwang embarrassedly said, “Mother, eldest brother probably just has something else to do.”
Xiaowang, “Is eldest brother mad that we didn’t give him candy?”
Sanwang, “Ha, you guys ate candy?!”
