Fear, Loathing, & DIY

Unemployment Day One, Saturday, Home Alone

May 6, 2017 by Kirby | 0 comments

Great news: I quit my job! It was a terrible situation. Quitting has been a huge weight off my shoulders, my moral shoulders, emotional shoulders, and the regular ones. My back almost feels ok. I am now roaming around the house and yard instead of trolling it up at a desk! That’s a little bit of an exaggeration since it’s only day one, but I do feel good. I feel like there is hope and there isn’t and underlying feeling of dread because I have to go back to an office I hate in two days.

Anyway, it’s day one. K is at work and I’ve had the day to myself. So far I’ve SHOWERED, soaked and scrubbed my feet, gardened, went to Lowes, made stuffed peppers, thought about a to-do list, and made this turmeric mask.


1 teaspoon of turmeric
1 teaspoon of raw organic honey
1 teaspoon of natural yogurt (or milk) (I used half-n-half)


Mix it all together in a small bowl. Don’t let it touch anything and don’t use your hands. Apply it to your clean face, while wearing a shirt you don’t mind staining. I used a small silicone baking spatula to apply it. Then waited fifteen minutes to wash it off.
