A Sneaking Suspicion...

I have the sneaking suspicion that being unemployed really just means more hours of the day in which I'm free to be a spaz. Yesterday was a rather good example. Since there are only so many hours you can comb the internet for job opportunities I decided to make the most involved dinner I have ever attempted: the pot roast. When I went to put the pot in the oven I failed to notice a serious design flaw where there is a sort of heated lip that is very easy to knock against if you aren't careful. Fortunately, I discovered it by placing my thumb against it and getting a very large, painful blister. Why do I say fortunately? It didn't need any further attention until 3 hours later--by which time Salsa Boy was home and willing to spare my poor hands and take it out of the oven for me.

The pot roast was absolutely, freakishly delicious. I'm not sure how often I will be home long enough to make a pot roast but for an occasional treat, I'm a fan.

This morning I also managed to slam my foot into the corner of my bed, crushing 3 of my poor toes. However, that's pretty much par for the course for my mornings.

Up next, an interview for a real estate job! We'll see how it goes.

You should get a crockpot! You can make pot roast and not even be home. Also good luck on your interview. We should talk soon. Also Happy New Year.
