Cookies & Work

I made my third batch of nonchocolate chip cookies yesterday.  Or maybe I should call them brown sugar cookies.  Either way, this time I used only one egg instead of two.  They're a little better, but still kind of fluffy.  So I really don't know what the deal is.  I used real butter this time instead of margarine.  I have two theories of what I might try.  One is that I might use less water and add in a little canola oil.  I'm using more water than the original recipe calls for because of the dryness, so that could be a factor.  The other thing is that using white Splenda as well as brown Splenda might be affecting the baking.  I don't think it's supposed to, but maybe it is.  I'm considering trying regular brown sugar, but it'll jack up my blood sugar, which I'm trying to avoid.  I mean, the cookies aren't bad now, so I might just try the oil (and maybe sticking the dough in the fridge for a bit) and leave it at that.  We'll see.

I've been looking for a job every day.  So far, no luck.  I've gotten a few calls, but it's all been for stuff that I'm not interested in.  Would you like to sell insurance?  Me neither.  The thing is... I'm about to run out of money.  Quickly.  And that's making me nervous.  I mean, if push comes to shove, I can get work.  I was just hoping to be able to find something that seems to be a good fit.  I got an email Friday evening from a woman about a Sales Assistant kind of position.  She included the job description and part of it sounds like reception work, which I don't want to do.  I replied and said I wasn't sure if I was the right fit, but that I'd be happy to meet with her to discuss it.  I'm supposed to call her tomorrow and then possibly meet with her next week.  So we'll see.

But it's all making me kind of anxious.
