I was fretting about the motorcycle to a very wise lady yesterday and she told me that I am only making myself feel bad and that I should trust the universe. Which is a very simple concept, right? I mean, I can fret and worry and work myself into a tizzy, but at the end of the day, what's going to happen is going to happen. Zen people tend to freak me the fuck out so it was a bit odd that I was so accepting of her attitude. But I'm trying. I will try to trust the universe. I will try to trust Shawn. He has been as supportive of my crazy as he can be, without agreeing to give up the motorcycle (which, let's face it, is the only thing that will make the crazy disappear) so I will try to be supportive of his stupidity. (Hey, I said I'm trying.)
Instead of focusing on the things that are making me blue, I'm trying to focus on the things that make me happy. You know what makes me happy? Bullet points!
- How I Met Your Mother. I love this show. I love that Shawn loves this show. Our taste in television differs widely so I'm very glad to have found a show that we both enjoy. Last night's episode was hilarious. Tuxedo night? Classic.
- Road trips. In two weeks, Shawn and I will be embarking on a road trip with another couple. We are going to drive from Vancouver to Magic Mountain in California. The details are a little fuzzy right now but I have been promised a drive through the redwoods and at least half a day in San Francisco. So, Californians: is there anything we need to do, any restaurants we need to eat at (we're talking burgers and tacos here, nothing fancy), anything we'll be kicking ourselves if we miss? This road trip will be quick and dirty. We leave Wednesday night and have to be back by Monday night.
- Puppies. Stella will be finished her medication tonight and by tomorrow she will (hopefully) be back to normal. She has been so lethargic and grumpy while on this medication but it does seem to be helping her ear. I'm going to be very happy to not have a drugged-up puppy tomorrow.
What's making you happy today?
