Chocolate Chip Waffles

So I have been a little behind on some recipes that I’ve wanted to post as I have been going to job interviews like CRAZY! In the past two months I have been to many, many interviews, been offered MANY positions, and finally went to a second interview and signed a contract with a Real Estate company this morning. So now I am an Administrative Assistant on the weekends (providing over 30 hours) and am free to pick up a part time job to fill in the blanks during the weekdays Mon-Thurs. I am very excited! I have been looking for an opportunity like this ever since I moved to Mississauga and I have finally secured it. The only issue is that I now have to terminate my employment at the other Real Estate Office I work at due to a conflict of interest 😦 This is upsetting for me because I am very fond of the girls in that office and it was my first real connection to the Real Estate world. But, c’est la vie…when opportunities arise they must be seized. I’m not one to accept change readily but am doing my best to go with the flow these days! 😀 I feel GREAT.  Who wants to be stuck in the same position FOREVER and NOT learn new skills anyways? NOT ME! Chris also interviewed for and snagged a really great job on Friday too! Things have been so great recently.

I have really come to embrace the “less-is-more” attitude lately. I don’t want to dye my hair or change who I am anymore. I am happy with what I have and vow to live simply from now on. Life is about more than acquiring material possessions, life is about living. That is also why this blog will always come second to anything else I am doing in my life. Maybe third or fourth sometimes. My internet identity is only a very small fraction of who and what I am. There is more to life than being behind the computer although I cherish having a place to share the delicious foods that I enjoy in my life from day to day.

*SIGH* Well, now that I have that off my mind I have a sinfully delicious chocolate chip waffles recipe that is nowhere near healthy! I made these when Chris’s brother and girlfriend were down for the week (last week?) and they LOVED them, and were filled for hours! I had to pull out and dust off the waffle iron for this batch of waffles as it hasn’t been used in probably 6 or 7 months (for some reason..) and it was so worth it!

    I love reading your material . Your such a talented writer. I dont think it would matter what your writing about you can make it sound wonderful. Your words just flow together . You should write for a newspaper or magazine. The waffle recipe sounds wonderful too. Talk to you later . Love mom
