Sounds like you need to call a family meeting. They need to know how you feel and maybe you can find out what kind of meals they would enjoy more or if there's another reason they do this. I'm sure they appreciate you a lot more than it seems.

As long as you have a good or decent form of communication with other members of the family, they will listen to what you have to say... and appreciate you even more. Take it as a blessing to have them because the main reason why people suffer in silence is because they don't have someone that will listen to them.

sit down with your family and tell them how you feel, just because you have a family does not mean your life should have no meaning. If you are happy working outside the home then do it, if you love to stay at home and raise your family do it. When you start resenting your family it is time to say something

you should tell them what exactly you are feeling. being open with your feelings with them, they will soon realize that you are working hard for them and that you are worthy to be appreciated. or maybe ask them what particular meal they want for the day. or maybe try a different menu, research and be creative. im sure they'll love it. :)

Although you are a stay at home mom, you really are working dear. Running an online store is not an easy task. Sounds like they get use to routines. Maybe you should perhaps ask them what exactly is going on. If you get an offline job sounds like they will still run the same as before. Since you are home, and cook then they should be okay with eating what you prepare. If they say they do not want it then tell them that the next day there will no meal. Of course you can cook the next day but maybe telling them that you will not will get them to understand that mom is hard working and they should appreciate you a bit more. Talk to them all about how you feel. All the best for your family and your online store.
