Who has time for a job?

I’m quickly approaching my one-month mark of being unemployed. How does it feel, you ask? Let me tell you, it feels GREAT!

I’ve had more time to do all sorts of things, most notably, sleep in late if I feel like it.

I’m doing yoga nearly every day and also almost always have time to cook something healthy, from scratch. One of my favourite things to do is to find a new recipe that can make it’s way into regular rotation at our place if it’s somewhat healthy, delicious, and easy to make.

Sticky, garlicky chicken sounds like one of those recipes, doesn’t it? I’ve tried this recipe twice now in one month, served it at two different family meals, and people were loving them. If you’d like to try making them, the recipe is here.

My weekends are lovely when I get to just relax and spend time with the two guys I love the most. We have been binge-watching The Office on Netflix and enjoying campfires in our backyard.

Besides my being unemployed, our family usually is pretty busy with a variety of scheduled activities: right now this includes evening classes, flag football games and practices, tackle football uniform fittings and practices, and volunteer work.

Yesterday we joined in the 30th annual Pride parade here in Winnipeg. It’s so amazing to see so many happy people celebrating diversity in the streets. Way to go Winnipeg!

With all of this going on, I’ve asked myself and my partner several times over the last month: “Who has time to work full time?”
