Please pray for me... I have 2 large assignments due this week, and I cannot concentrate on anything. I got really sick, and went to "lay down a minute" at 6:30, then got up at 8:30 feeling almost worse. I can breath better than I could on Saturday, or yesterday. And, my heart isn't bothering me nearly as bad, in fact I didn't have any "episodes" today. This is a plus!!

I have to write a paper by Wednesday around 1ish, and then a 30 minute+ power point by Thursday morning at 9:20. The powerpoint will be easier than this effin paper. I'm supposed to write a paper on "How to Read the Bible for all it's worth."

I haven't read the book, except for part of chapter two. Again, can't concentrate. Thankfully, I'm only supposed to read one chapter. Then, I have 2 articles to read as well, then write a 5-7 page paper that answers certain questions.

I am so ready to be out of college. You have no idea how ready I am.

I hate when I feel this way, when I can't concentrate on anything I read, even "pleasure" reading I just want to veg out in front of the TV because that is all I feel like doing.

On top of everything else, I think dinner was a bust. *I* thought it was good, but I don't know how well husband liked it. I made a cold pasta salad. I cooked fettucini and then in the last minute I threw in some carrot and cucumber shavings, then I rinsed them off in cold water, and tossed them with chicken tenders I had cut into bite sized pieces then pan grilled (in my AWESOME ELECTRIC SKILLET!) and then tossed everything with zesty Italian dressing. It was VERY good.

If I haven't already complained about it, I do not have a full sized stove. I absolutely abhor this, and cannot wait until the day I have a full sized stove!!! I love to cook and bake, and this stove is the bane of my existence at times. I can't make a meal come together sometimes because it doesn't heat evenly. I only have 1 big burner, and 3 small ones, but only two pans fit on the stove at one time. Plus, if you bake anything in the oven, it always dips in the middle because the oven doesn't bake evenly.

For our wedding, A member of Carl's family (or...was it a friend of his family? I don't remember) bought us an electric skillet. I was kind of iffy at first, and it didn't make it to my apartment until this semester. I looooooooooove it! I can finally fix a whole meal at once! I usually make the meat in the electric skillet, and use the stove for whatever else I'm making.

I think I'm going to go have some Hummus and baked pita chips, with V8 Fushion juice. Yummy!

Did you like my recipe? Wanna see more? I loooove to cook, and I'm always coming up with recipes of my own, I'd be willing to share!

  1. I LOVE pasta salad - it sounds so delicious!

    That's fun that you are a creative cook - I have to follow recipes to the letter, or everything turns out awful for me!

    I also don't have a full sized stove and it is KILLING me. I used to take pride in my baking ability, but my oven will not cook anything evenly, increases in temperature the longer something is in it, and is waaaay too small to fit much inside the oven or on top of the stove. I cannot wait until June when we will finally have a full size kitchen! (Although I think I'm starting to get the hang of my oven - two years later...)
