As quietly as I have kept this information, my jobby job has been in jeopardy for months. The company I work for opted to enact some major lay-offs. It has been very stressful for myself and everyone involved. I have officially made it through with no changes to my job status. I will retain all benefits with no decrees in hours nor pay. While I am upset to see my long time work friends walk out the door for the final time, I am grateful that I still have my job. It has been a trying time and the weeks to come, adjusting to the new structure will be difficult.
On a side note, I have been trying to stay in the kitchen a little more recently. I made another batch of shepherds pie to take with me to work. It is becoming a simple and filling work time meal.
Ashley and I made some pizza recently as well. It was kind of like a vegan meat lovers. We used soy sausage, soy bacon, soy pepperonis and onions. It was a funny afternoon.
It is also watermelon season! Juicy watermelon is one of my favorite foods. Sitting down with a nice bowl of melon is a great feeling on a hot Atlanta summer day.
