coffee grounds, recipe of the day, and 60 day chip

Happy Thursday--almost Friday. This has been a crazy week. It has been very manic so to speak--happy then sad then angry then anxious then happy again. Oh well. It's all good I guess.

Here is my favorite quote right now:

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." - Marilyn Monroe

Had a super good tuna sandwich today for lunch. Went to Frisco's with my friend Jamie--that is always so fun. I brought her some chocolate chip banana muffins. They are delicious--I'm sure she is going to love them.

Ok so yesterday I went with my friends Steven and Randy to have my coffee grounds read. There is this wonderful woman that we found in Whittier and she does spiritual readings with coffee grounds. Sounds odd I know but it's really pretty cool. I actually got a lot out of it. Went for sheer entertainment but it was actually kind of enlightening. We had a blast. Then we all went to Ruby's and had burgers and hot fudge sundaes. Life really doesn't get much better than that.

Oh the Turkish coffee lady (that is what we call her) did say one thing that made me laugh. She said that recently I was close to someone that hurt me (which of course is true). Then she said that that person is immature, very selfish, kind of crazy, needs to grow up, and that I'm better off without her. In fact--way better off without her. I of course agree. 

So, everyday I get a new recipe emailed to me from this club that I'm in. They are usually pretty cool recipes like trout with almond sauce or swiss fondue, but today the recipe was unusually different but I loved it. The recipe of the day was....wait for it....chili cheese dog casserole. Holla. Represent the midwest with a casserole. Basically you place buns on the bottom of a pan then put in hot dogs--add chili and cheese then bake. Garnish with onions if desired. Sounds like a swell dish to me.

So last week I got my 60 day chip for the recovery program that I am in. It felt super good. I'm really proud of myself because I've been working super hard. I love the fact that just two months ago I was as low as I have ever been and now--I'm doing pretty well. Glad I didn't give in to the desperation and end it all--believe me--I was nearly there. Life always gets better. Sometimes you just have to feel the pain and try to learn from it. In the end--it will always be ok. See--if it's not ok then it's not the end. I sometimes get frustrated that this whole process of healing is taking so long but I'm trying to be patient because I know that sooner or later--it'll all pass and I'll be able to tackle much more important things in life.

I'm trying to think of what else to say...oh here are a few more things that I thought of that are either under or overrated. 

Kobe Bryant
Jane Austen
Fancy Beer
Anything vanilla scented

Bubble baths
homemade gifts
Straight up cheese pizza
Margaret Cho
Quiet Friday nights at home

Ok-I think that's it for today--Thanks for reading everyone.


  1. great gains take great risks
    courage leaves me breathless with
    fear, but i walk on

  2. LOL to Jane Austin being overrated!
    and Margaret Cho is indeed a funny woman!

  3. We should have some of that casserole for class. :) Sounds legit.

    I think snail mail is underrated. :( I wish more people would write. Plenty of times, I've written letters only to receive an e-mail or FaceBook comment in return. No bueno.

    What's a chip?

    ;) Don't forget to listen to Josh Wilson's Before the Morning. Good stuff. And watch Children Full of Life. That's good too.
