Blessings and Broken Glass

Ominous title, isn't it? But it really is a summary of what I did today. I was baking part of my dinner in the oven and when I took it out, I put it on a hot electric burner. I have done this multiple times before and nothing happened but I guess the burner was hot enough and the pyrex literally exploded. I was standing about 2 inches from the stove when it happened (you can see where the blessing part of it comes in). The glass shot out for about 7 feet (some of it melting into the carpet and on the kitchen flooring). I was shocked but managed to get all the glass up, swept, vacuumed, and mopped. And I only ended up with a small cut on my finger and a small shard embedded in my heel (and that hurt BAD to pull out). So my Sunday evening ended with broken glass and, more importantly, BLESSINGS!!! I am thankful and sharing this as a lesson: Don't put that pyrex on a hot surface, they aren't as indestructable as previously thought. :)

Yay! I'm glad you're blogging again! I'm sorry things aren't great in your current position. Wanna go back overseas with me this summer? LOL! Bring Kelvin!
As for weight, I look like a grotesque, swollen version of my former TaeKwanDo self. I hate the mirror.

Adjustment sucks doesn't it? I think I have managed to make the whole process more drawn out by not starting working in a school until being home 7 months. Getting a room mate sounds like a great idea, I am thinking of buying a house that is big enough to allow me to take in a couple of international students, would help my finances, give me some company and since they mostly come from China and Korea, help me feel connected to Asia still.
