I've written quite a few blogs and deleted every one of them. They all seemed to focus on my job or lack there of. So until I find something I can do at home or find a job, or win the lottery....oops you have to play to win...don't you....bummer, I will make every attempt to focus on my health. And if a lack of job frustration leaks in....I hope you'll forgive me.
My dear hubby has really been enjoying having me home. We have a great 50/50 relationship....we get groceries together......we cook together....we clean up together. Well, since he is the sole bread winner in the family, I have taken over the food detail. We tend to be creatures of habit, so our variety of meals has been very weak.
So I've been trying to find new things....things that taste great, are healthy, and don't take long to make. Last night I made BBQ chicken sandwiches. I have never in my life boiled chicken. And while it looks gross, it sure makes great, tender meat. So I learned something new. And that is what it's all about...isn't it.
I'm going to look for some great crock pot recipes this week. I love that in the winter time. Spark people recipes really make it easy and fun. So I guess this is good that I have this time to do this.
On an exciting note, I am the President of our local Society of Human Resource Management group, and I had to let the National organization know that I was without a job. I got a call from them yesterday and they asked me to be on a judging panel to give away scholarships for people looking for assistance with certification and education. It isn't a paying job, but it is a way to network with others in my field and is a real feather in my cap. So I am really excited about the opportunity.
I hope you are all well! If you have any favorite recipes, I would love to hear about them.
