Salam alaikum my lovely and very missed sisters!
Jazakalkhair for all of you who sent me emails to see how I was doing. Many of you thought something bad happened, but I assure you, I have just been very busy.
My husband and I finally opened the store, alhamdulilah. He is still working at his job so we can make the rent for the place, as I am sure you all know, you don't have a flash of business and customers straight when you open, you have to work hard to build that. So I am working just about 12 hours a day at the store, and toting Ahmad along with me, we also have our partners wife working with me. She cuts/cleans the fish when the customers purchase them, and I do everything else (getting the customers orders and ringing them up).
Alhamdulilah, at first it was very difficult with Ahmad. The first few days there was non-stop crying, I felt like I was at my wits end when all of a sudden, he finally adjusted to our new routine. He is so cute, he tries to help me in any way he can. While I am pulling something, he will go on the other end and push it. All is well now, and we are all very much into routine and well adjusted.
Needless to say, due to the long hours, and then returning home to do my duties at home, I am very exhausted. Alhamdulilah, I have a good husband who helps me out, sometimes he washes the dishes while I rest or gives Ahmad a bath while I cook supper, etc.
Anyhoo, I just thought I should give an update, a very needed one at that. :) Insha'allah all of you are doing well! <3
