The good news is that I'm finally making a bit of money. I get worried during the slow times. I honestly don't recommend being self-employed! Yes, I like being able to set my own hours, but I don't like the way the business is taking over my life. There's a lot to be said for a job that lets you have your weekends and evenings off without constantly worrying about work. Thank God for caffeine!
Dee and Ryo are still very much on my mind, however, and I often think about them and run future scenes though my head. If I'm able to get anything done in the next couple of weeks, I'll let you know.
In other news, I'm starting to kind of like quinoa. Yes, really. I've learned that it makes a difference if you measure the water and time the cooking correctly. I think one of the reasons I didn't like it before was that I always overcooked it into mush. My husband loves it. So far we are only eating it sweetened like a kind of breakfast cereal. I'm not yet ready to give it the tabouleh treatment. Besides, I'm hardly cooking nowadays. On the weekends I make pots of things my husband can feed himself with and I leave them in the fridge. I'm living off sandwiches or McDonalds snack wraps for lunch and dinner, with the occasional take-out sushi.
Apropos of nothing, I got through Halloween without eating one single mini-chocolate bar! But before you get blinded from the light coming from my halo, let me add that when a box of good-quality chocolates arrived at my shared office, I certainly did not abstain.
If you have time, let me know how you guys are doing.
