The New Normal Lunch

It has been 52 school days straight of making fun bento lunches for MoWabbit. I’ve learned a lot and have really enjoyed being creative for fun (and not for work). Because time doesn’t just magically appear, I traded in time that I normally would have spent on practicing ukulele, or taking a hot bath, or  read, etc. in order to make fancy bento lunches. The sleeping also suffered too, because chores like laundry just isn’t going to wash/dry/fold/hang/put away themselves (my least favorite chore). Additionally, MoWabbit’s enthusiasm for the high effort lunches have declined over the last week or two.

It’s time to optimize for the outcomes:

  • Fancy bento lunches will no longer be a daily thing so that:
    • Bettering my ukulele playing skills becomes a priority again
    • More sleep is possible again
    • Making fancy bento lunches does not become and feel like a chore/no longer fun
    • Posting all previous fancy bentos to this blog in details will actually happen for reals
  • Fancy bento lunches will appear once a week and on special occasions or when I have the extra time to be creative, so that:
    • Both myself and MoWabbit will appreciate the times fancy lunches are made
    • I have more time to think about and prepare for even more awesome future bento lunches

The new normal lunch can be made within 10 minutes or under. Still cute yet simple to create.
