        • Hopefully this job turns into a career!! Best of luck to you both now that you can relax a bit and finally BREATHE! Quick question - is he paid weekly, bi-weekly or monthly? It doesn't really matter, I was just curious how long it might be before the money starts flowing for you. If it's weekly, it'll probably be two weeks before his first check, three to four weeks if he's paid bi-weekly, and sadly, probably five to six weeks if he's paid monthly. I don't know how people survive on a monthly paycheck.

          Brad and I get paid bi-weekly, on alternating weeks. So this week, I get paid, next week he gets paid. We barely make it week to week b/c we let our debts get out of control. I can't imagine how hard it would be if we were paid monthly... the self control we'd have to display... impossible!

          Anyhow, I'm super excited that your hubby has a job and everyone can get back to life. What an ordeal! I'm so so so glad it's over.

          • And...he's off! Feels so good to be sending your husband off to work.

            And to be back on my normal schedule. I like having time to myself to do my chores, and it was too easy to slip out of my normal routine when my Honey was here. (Not that all of it was bad: one side-effect of unemployment is more cuddle time, always good!)

            I've already gotten my dishes done, and the rest of my chores set up for the morning. Just saw Littlest off to school, and once the furnace man is done (yay for service agreements) I'll be able to eat my breakfast and do my chores in leisure while I listen to NPR. Another thing I've missed. Honey liked limited amount of news when he was unemployed, to avoid even more stress, but that meant I didn't get my fix because I was trying to keep things mellow for him. Well, the radio is ON! The Brussel sprouts are cooking, and I am feeling fine!

            Once we get caught up on our bills I'll be feeling even better, because Honey will be earning more at this job. Yay!

                      • Okay, time to come down

                        I realized (after flitting through journals pretty much all day) that I am somewhat giddy.

                        Got all my chores done (including a 6 mile ride for vittles) and decided to tackle a writing project that I had put aside for months. Might as well use all this energy for good, and not evil. Pulled out the tub (after hunting through tubs for the right one) and started sorting the papers that I had just thrown in there in a fit of despair. Research, notes, inspirational quotes, ms pages, outlines, fascinating craft techniques with attached notes leading me in awesomely different directions, cards from friends, office supplies-binder clips, paper clips, post-it notes, markers, highlighters.

                        Taking a little break right now, as I felt overwhelmed, but my goal is to have a stack of ms pages to go through tomorrow, to figure out where, exactly, I am in this story.

                        Honey called this morning to let me know he had his own cubicle, and was setting it up. I think he felt weird, being away from me, and wanted to touch base, because ordinarily he is not a phoning guy. Or maybe he just knew I would want to hear 'job news'. Either way, it is sweet.

                        Okay, back to sorting.

                        • My hunny isn't one for talking on the phone (unless it's to one of the guys about racing, then he can gab like a girl forEVER), but if something is exciting him, he'll call me. I bet your honey is excited and wanted to share that excitement. Kudos to him for sure.

                          what are you writing??

                            Happy dance, happy dance, happy dance! Go ahead and be giddy.

                            A pay raise too? Too sweet.

                            • I write sensual Georgian historical romance.

                              No, I'm not published.

                              Yes, I hope to be someday.

                              This book is the first of a four-book series about four sisters. I have completed (let me think) four manuscripts, and drafted four or five more. Like most beginning writers, I started off very ambitiously. My early works are crazy long and complicated. This series is, I hope, more in tune with my present talents.

                              Middlest needs the internet, so off I go.

                              • Okay, quiche in the oven, and errands set up so that once the quiche is out, off I go. Laundromat, credit union, post office, grocery. This afternoon, I will be trying to take a nap, because tonight (now, don't get your panties in a ruffle, GayPanda et al, if you are reading this) a friend is taking me to the midnight show of Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part II.

                                Yes. I like Twilight. Like the books, like the movies.

                                I also like Austen, Bujold, Christie, Dickens, King, Trollope(both of them), Weber, and many others.

                                Here's what went into my quiche:
                                Roasted the yellow* and red pepper*, peeled them, and cut the yellow one into chunks, and the red one into strips.
                                Cooked two strips of bacon, then in the grease, cooked 2 mushrooms, a shallot*, and baby spinach* and arugula*. Tossed the diced bacon and yellow pepper back into the mix.
                                Standard egg* and cream mixture, layered with the veges and bacon, sprinkled with a LITTLE cheddar, and topped with the red pepper strips neatly spoked across the top.

                                * All this was from the food bank. There were a lot of cans, but I was impressed with the fresh produce and eggs/cheese/milk. Very nice.

                                Okay, it just came out of the oven. Looks great. I snapped a picture to memorialize it. Now, off I go on my rounds.
