You might say I have too much time on my hands and you might be right. This is day number 2 of being at home.

My day has looked something like this:

1. Get up, have tea with Breen, and send the kids off to school
2. Make green smoothie, get on floor and stretch
3. Walk outside to get bike out of garage and stumble in to drama at the wack job neighbor's house
4. Get car inspected in a very questionable neighborhood in Philadelphia
5. Come home. Take a bike ride
6. Send off resume to 5 job postings
7. Play with art materials for some new ideas...nothing is coming...my ideas died of loneliness a while ago
8. Try my hand at making Sushi (pictures below)
9. One phone interview which lasted for 1 hour with a woman who runs a music school and is a bit fearful of hiring me because I just got laid off from another music school which ultimately tanked.
10. Get sucked in to blogging.

Time feels suspended right now. When Breen gets home, I'm sure he'll wonder what I did all day. I'm sure there is a divine plan for me and there is a specific reason why I'm home chasing my tail in circles wondering when/where/how I will make my living next. This is uncomfortable for me. I like time to myself but all of this free time could start to make me a little nutty. Not having my own paycheck could make me certifiable.

The kids get home in about an hour and I sit here realizing that due to the list above, the house still needs to be picked up. Honestly....where does the time go??

Here is today's lunch. I finally found sushi rice at a reasonable price, so I decided to break in my sushi mat:

First you spread rice all over the Nori sheet. Flip it over and add jananese mayo, cucumber, avocado and sesame seeds.

Once it is rolled up, it's ready for another bath of sesame seeds

Slice it up, and look what I've got in my Bento box!


  1. Yum, yum, yum!

    Maybe until you have a paycheck, you could explore ways of using your creativity to generate extra funds? Like selling your aprons? Or another idea? Jane, you are so creative. I keep hoping that you can find a way to use your creative skills to make money and not have to have an office job (but then that's just my bias...don't listen to me if that's what you want!). Lots of love, O

  2. Wouldn't it be fabulous if you could put all your considerable skills to work for you and generate income? Your furniture and aprons alone, not to mention your yummy dishes are certainly marketable :)

  3. Hang in there Jane it will all work out
    I love the sushi I will try and make it one day

    Peace and Hugs
