All in day's work or not.

There is no freedom like seeing myself as I am and not losing heart.

The marinated chicken is braising in the big enamel pot and the whole apartment is starting to smell good. To appease my appetite until it is done, I just ate what was left over of the Exfactor's birthday cake and now I am not so hungry anymore. It was not a huge piece, but apparently it was bigger than my stomach was prepared to handle. I will only eat the chicken for dinner and not fix anything else. I can not even stand the thought of peeling potatoes right now, while I usually think that is a fun job to do.

I have had a good hard look at the waiting lists for the apartments in Emmen and I think that one of them is coming up too fast and that I will not be financially ready. If I am really honest, I think that maybe it is not the one I really want anyway and that I will let it go if it is offered to me and wait for the next one to come up. There are apartments I would prefer to live much more in better locations if I really had my choice, and I think I do, because I am not desperate. The waiting lists for them are a little longer, but I get a lot more excited when I look at them. 

Today I searched for apartments by street name and found two more buildings that were very attractive and added those to my lists. I also took a few apartments off the lists where I decided I did not want to live at all. I am becoming more picky now that I realize that I do not need to rush and have to wait for my finances to get straightened out

The most fun is looking at the floor plans and the measurements, and trying to figure out how to make the furniture fit. That reminds me that I still have to take the measurements of  the rooms in this apartment to find out what I have been dealing with all this time. I have really no idea what the dimensions are here. I can only guesstimate. 

The chicken is done and the news is going to be on. Ciao!

Glad you are not rushing into anything as regards the apartments.
We are having chicken casserole tonight as well. :-)

As you say, you can wait. No need to rush into anything.

I hope the chicken casserole was good. A lovely dish for a cold winter’s night.
