I made two observations today, both painfully obvious. One, today is Mother's Day. Two, I am still as of yet unemployed.
Last night I asked Janna what she wanted for her Mother's Day breakfast. She thought about it for awhile, and answered, "Crepes." Well, I've never made crepes before, but I do like them. And thanks to the internet, I can get a recipe for any darn thing I want. So I did. After a late night trip to Kroger (fresh strawberries or frozen? I went with frozen), and then a good night's sleep, I steeled myself for the great crepe experiment. I'll spare you the floury details, but it'll do to say that the crepes were a success - Janna liked them a lot and so did I. Laney scraped the strawberries out of the middle and Sam didn't eat a blasted thing, but that's par for the culinary course.
Meanwhile, as I mentioned before, I am still unemployed and suffering from non-productivityitis. That is, other than making a few hundred bucks doing a yard sale this weekend, I seem to do nothing but consume.
So in the spirit of Mother's Day, a day in which we celebrate creation of new life, here's my resolution: for every day that I am unemployed, I will do something that I have never done before.
Today's new thing: crepes.
