Ever have one of those days...

In which you are absolutely positive that the Lord is completely aware of exactly what is going on in your life and knows exactly where your breaking point is? I've had about four of them in a row. The best part about it is, I feel His influence in my life and know that He is not only aware, but concerned and has done so many things to make me okay with it all.
Today's scripture of the day is, "For behold, I have refined thee, I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction."
I feel nothing but gratitude.
(That would be excitement.)

I'm getting closer.

I discovered that if I sub out the sour cream for plain yogurt and add more sugar I'm much closer to the strawberry bisque that I'd like to create.

Happy Birthday!

Today my blog turned 2. Can I say that? In Spanish I would say, "Today my blog completed 2 years." That sounds funny too. way or another, "my funny funny little world" has been global for 2 years. I choose to celebrate by sharing another crazed patient story from work. Our new patient scheduler shared this story with me because she considers me "the literary type" (that makes me laugh). Apparently we had a patient call to tell us that he "knows how the system works" and is writing a book about it. Its name is THE PRETENDERS. Wait, NO! Its name is [said in the voice of a chain smoker or one who has had throat cancer] HARD-CORE-PAIN-THAT'S-TRAPPED-IN-YOUR-BODY-AND-YOU-THINK-THERE-IS-NO-WAY-OUT...PS-BUT-THERE-IS-A-WAY. Yup. That's his title. Nope. Not his thesis sentence. Just his title. I love our patients. They make me appreciate the things that I really have and enjoy in my life.

my eye is twitching...

I'm pretty sure that Donkey said that in SHREK once, but I'm not sure that I can verify that. I can, however, say it for myself. I seem to have developed a twitch in my left eye. I don't know exactly what it causing the problem, but I do have my theories. I just took a new job at work which has been known to cause shingles among previous employees. Because of the recently acquired twitch, I chose to make this a nice quiet night in (no roommates). In the midst of my productivity for the evening, I spent a little time with HGTV HOUSE HUNTERS INTERNATIONAL. I watched a couple sell their home and citrus nursery so that they could move to the Great Barrier Island and live a completely self-sufficient lifestyle. I want to live on the Great Barrier Island and live a completely self-sufficient lifestyle. I think my eye would quit twitching.
PS I miss Nebraska.

I went to a play last week and I've been mulling over for almost a whole week now and I still don't know how I feel about it. It was Shakespeare's AS YOU LIKE IT, which is my favorite Shakespeare. Period. This version kind of baffled me. It was was 'modern musical interpretation' and that's what's boggling me. It was beyond modern. I would classify it as post-modern. Gothic Cold War? Really? The music they chose? I WILL FOLLOW YOU INTO TO THE DARK by Death Cab for Cutie and THE CHAIN by Ingrid Michaelson. I still have those songs stuck in my head. Help? I think I need to go to the Shakespearean Festival this summer. Period.
