Ship’s Log–January 19th, 2015


We had donuts today. Two and a half months ago, we put a moratorium on donuts, saying that we would get them to celebrate once The Hub’s expected job offer came in. We expected that to be a day or two, but we’re still waiting on that job offer. However, he’s had so many freelance jobs come in that the job offer is no longer necessary for our comfort.

The Hub has one last big interview coming up this week related to that expected job offer that would now be a luxury rather than a necessity, and to take the pressure off, we decided to go get donuts. So today’s donuts were special, magical donuts meant to signal to the Universe that we had taken control of our situation away from this one employer. If they offer the job, great! If not, we still have happiness, in the form of fried bits of dough (as well as in the form of piles of freelance dough)

Plus, the donut shop had announced that they were now making red velvet donuts, which was awfully tempting, truth be told.
