It’s Saturday around 10:45 am and I’m watching a cooking show on WQED Public Television. I don’t know why I love these cooking shows. I never use my oven. If I have a roast and potatoes to cook I throw it all in the crock pot and forget about it. Anything that I can’t cook on top of the stove I throw in the crock pot.
I didn’t leave my apartment yesterday because my right foot was so swollen and sensitive. The extreme sensitivity is mostly gone today but the foot is still swollen. I probably won’t go out today, either. What a drag. I hope I can go to computer school on Monday. I’m missing too many days, especially since my basic six months were up a couple of months ago and my extension is probably up by now, too. No school no income. I won’t get my first social security check until December.
I haven’t heard from the local university or the health insurance company that I interviewed for. The state hiring freeze is still in effect. I think my best hope for employment is that after the national election the state hiring freeze will be lifted and I’m called to work. In the mean time I have to keep looking for work.
Now Martin Yan’s China is on the television. I sure could use some Chinese food now. The only thing I have in the fridge is cooked turkey necks, green peppers and tomatoes. I eat simply.
