Did I say I was hitting the ground running re: the job search today?

Reader(s), I lied.  I totally forgot that Kent's "weekend" is Sunday/Monday.  I got up a little before 7, thoroughly depressed myself by watching about ten minutes of news, then decided to rub salt in a fresh wound by watching last night's episode of Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown.

I ended up going back to bed to snuggle with the spousebeast for a while.  Our schedules had been so different and I had been exhausted for so long...I'm starting to feel like myself again.  I don't hear him complaining.  ;)

When we got up, he made me pancakes and bacon, which he hasn't done in I can't remember how long.  He picked up a box of buttermilk and honey mix at work and....OMG, so good.  I usually fiddle around with boxed pancake mixes (vanilla, a little cinnamon and/or powdered ginger, adding oj for some of the liquid).  this didn't need ANYTHING.  It barely needed syrup.  (It's Kodiack Cakes Flapjack and Waffle mix.  I checked because I know someone will ask and my seive-like brain will forget to respond.  It's a bit pricey in my eyes, but not so bad with his 20% discount.  Especially because a box will last us *months*)

We spent most of the day reading our respective books with Food Network on demand as background noise.  He's reading My Life in France by Julia Child and I'm doing my annual summer re-read of Under the Tuscan Sun.  I see a lot more cooking in our future (as opposed to ripping open a bag of salad, adding some shredded carrot and/or fresh herbs nicked from the faux kitchen garden in front of a local restaurant--seriously, they just plant the stuff and let it die--and trying to top it with some sort of protein, if there happens to be any we feel like taking the trouble to fix).

For tonight, I grilled off the last of the chicken tenders, shredded them, and have them simmering in barbecue sauce with thinly sliced onion and....whatever random things I added to jazz up bottled sauce (I really wasn't paying attention, but it's good).  The coleslaw is chilling in the fridge.  I'm heating up a can of baked beans and calling it supper.  And probably lunch for the next couple of days.

Things are improving by inches.  Now to just find a job.

Just take deep breaths and one step at a time, your work persona is still in shock.

I have had the same problem trying to watch Parts Unknown - the only one of his series' that I have not seen all of multiple times. It just makes me so sad that his POV is gone.

This is “healing time”, and that’s ok. Hugs.

You don't have to find a job by a certain date and time. I know very soon, yes, but enjoy a little downtime... Kent's read sounds pretty good.

You're still adjusting to not being in work. Be kind to yourself. *hugs*
