Stuff I typed up but didn't get around to posting....

I got some of my Valentine’s Day stuff on Friday. It was pretty cool too. B got me two cookbooks, a slow-cooker book and a cooking for two book as well as a new Xbox game called Legacy of Kain. So far they’re all pretty awesome. I played the game for a really long time the other day and I haven’t tried anything from the cookbooks but they both have some really intriguing recipes in them. On Friday and Saturday we had people over and I tried a few new recipes including cottage cheese casserole, chicken jambalaya, hunter’s chicken (which is a bit like chicken cacciatore) and some couscous which I’d made before. I love the jambalaya but the casserole and the hunter’s chicken didn’t work out as well as I’d hoped. I think they both needed more spices.

B and I re-arranged the bedroom Tuesday night. I like to re-arrange furniture every so often to keep things interesting. We moved the bed onto an angle and I really like the way that it looks. There’s a larger space in the middle of the room now where I could sit quietly and do my meditations! As soon as I saw the amount of space that was being created I knew it would be perfect for that! Talk about an added bonus! I also figured out this morning that I can do any workouts I feel inclined to do in the office because there’s quite a large open space in there and my laptop has a DVD player on it. So I tried out the cardio workout on a DVD I bought over the Xmas holidays and it went pretty well… at least with regards to having enough space! LoL

I was advised on Tuesday that I did not get the tutoring position and strangely enough, both B and I were relieved by the news. After having me work alongside him a few times he realized that he rather enjoyed coming home and having lunch ready for him and the dishes done (well, most of the time). I’d started doubting my decision to submit my resume right after I’d done it but I chose to submit it because it would show interest in working at the school which so if something comes up next year I’ll be considered. If I hadn’t submitted it I very possibly might not have been considered for any future positions. This way I’m leaving the door of possibility open.

Mmmm Jambalaya. I have a pretty decent recipe for a pork/shrimp version that i've made a couple of times recently. I just make it with the shrimp though. ;) Sounds like some good cookbooks and some good recipes!
The DVD in the laptop is exactly what I was doing when I was working on the bellydancing stuff for awhile there. Haven't had much time for that with all the gym going, but the 'office' is the general room for that kinda work for me too. ;)
I'm glad that you're happy with how the tutoring thing worked out. Sounds like Bro just wants you all to himself. ;) Not that we could blame him. :p
Yeah, I'm really happy with the cookbooks and really eager to try some of the recipes... just waiting until payday so we can get some more ingredients! That and clean the slowcooker!

I really am happy with the whole tutoring situation and I don't mind Bro wanting me all to himself. Besides, I really think I need to continue focusing on my writing, reading, painting and music. These things really make me happy. I'm also coming to the realization that having the time to keep things in order (but really I'm not a virgo) really helps me feel good.
Believe me, at the moment at least, I'd probably die to have what you've got going on even if it was only for a week or two. ;p So I don't blame you for wanting to keep at it. If only we could all just work on what made us happy.
