Kent took the news better than I thought.  He had the moment of "You did WHAT!?!?!?" and when I told him what had happened, he just hugged me and assured me we'd get through this.

I ended up collapsing in bed before 7 last night, which means my body decided 1am was a perfectly reasonable hour to be up.  It was oddly freeing to think "Well, I can just get up, instead of tossing and turning for the next four hours.  I can take a nap later if I need to."

(Also, I can wake the spousebeast up with coffee and morning sex.  Talk about a win-win)

I'm going to take today (and possibly tomorrow--I think I deserve it) off, then hit the ground running in respect to jobs.  For now, though, it's all coloring, Joni Mitchell, and later I'll be baking a ginger apple pie.  Yes, in this wretched heat.  When Mr. I Don't Realy Like Sweets brings home apples, that's a gentle clue.  And I haven't made one in a while.  Besides, ginger is an appropriate spice for Solstice.

But I really, really want to make a lemon jello ice box pie.  Next week, maybe.  Or a peanut butter pie with a chocolate graham cracker crust.

I don't know what's with us and desserts lately. Of course, the constant stream of slightly damaged fruit coming in the house probably helps.

Ya know, tomorrow is Friday.  Bad day to look for work (but I can always do a million online applications).  Maybe I'll start the process Monday.

I am glad Kent took it well, I think he was realizing too how much that job was taxing you. Now that your mind and energy is not caught in that place any more, I am sure something new will pop up in no time... you are AVAILABLE now, which you weren't before.

You did what you needed to do.

I am so sorry that place didn't see the gem they had. So, very, deeply, sorry, and I'm glad you bagged it.

Fuck 'em stupid.

Onward. I wonder what's next?

I am glad you are free. You'll miss your people, but oh ye gods what a nightmare of a place.

Also, can I put in a plug for lemon icebox pudding? One of my all-time favorite lemony icebox desserts:

LEMON ICEBOX PUDDING
3 eggs
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
Juice of 1 ½ lemons
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3/4 lb. graham crackers or vanilla wafers

Beat eggs. Add salt, sugar and lemon juice, and cook until thick, stirring often. Set aside to cool. When cold, whip cream and mix with the thickened lemon custard.

Crush graham crackers or vanilla wafers and cover the bottom of a square pan with half of the crumbs. Spoon in the custard and cream mixture, then sprinkle with remaining crumbs. The original recipe says to “let stand overnight in a cool place” — mine goes in the freezer so the lemon layer is nice and solid. Cut in squares to serve.
