It's been a while since I've written anything, and I just wanted to let you know I'm still here. It's been a bit of a crazy week, and on top of that, my laptop charger is broken. I've ordered a new one online so I should be getting it in the mail sometime this week.
I've been writing down several recipes for the last few weeks as I experiment with new ones in the kitchen, so I've got a few to share with you, including sugar cookies (created entirely by yours truly), split pea soup, and several casserole dishes. I've also been reading like a madwoman so I've got several book reviews to share with you.
I'm not always sure what to write on here because lately my life has been pretty routine, not that I don't like it. In general, my days begin with running or working out, eating a leisurely breakfast, heading to the library and applying for jobs, and back home for a few hours of reading a new book and then starting on dinner. I know that may seem pretty luxurious to most of you, but honestly, I really would rather be working. It's hard not to feel guilty for not quitting my job, because we're not in the kind of financial position for a one working person household. So I continue to look for jobs and applying like crazy. It's definitely a tough market out there right now.
On another note, I got a bike! It's a gift from my mom and Bekah, and it's such a blessing. I was getting pretty frustrated with running as my only form of exercise, and it's so wonderful to have a bike again. I haven't been on one in a year!! It's definitely my preferred mode of working out. Yesterday, I took it out for a spin around the golf course/country club trail and around some of the surrounding neighborhoods. Yay for bikes!
I will write again soon. I just have to steal one of those limited computers at the library. But I shall do it. Alos, a Happy Birthday to Renae, Mom and Justin who all have birthdays within four days of each other.
