I've been dealing with some difficult internal stuff this past week, and there have been a few things that have saved me.
1) Comfort food. Last night I made a Mexican casserole that I used to make in Houston. It wasn't quite how I'd have done it if I were working from scratch (I'd rather start off with chicken and rotel in the crockpot instead of left over cooked chicken), but it was still pretty good and a taste of home. Then I made a Strawberry Dream Pie. Tonight Mom made mashed potatoes and gravy just for me. Yum. I had a bowl for a midnight snack, too.
2) I'm reading a really fantastic book called A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. Really. It's fab. I'll be reviewing it soon. I'm about half way through the book, only 275 more pages to go. It's a big 'un.
3) I've been listening to a LOT of Katy Perry. Very peppy. My favorite is Teenage Dream. But I don't love the video, so here is the boys' choir from Glee doing their version. Hope it makes you as happy as it makes me.
