1. just paid off my Chase credit card! Woohoo!! Financial freedom, here we come! It only took me two CC representatives to get through the hoops of them trying to get me to stay on. I think they finally got the picture.

2. today for lunch: a beet quesadilla. This is what happens when cara forgets that there's a trader joe's beet salad in the fridge. With the lettuce now ghandi, what better an option than to create-a-meal. I am brought back to our after school days growing up in which we'd raid the kitchen for any such items that might be good in a milkshake. Peppermint extract, vanilla extract, jello, icecream (hence the "milkshake" part of the equation), bananas, apples, oranges, milk (staple numero dos), cinnamon - the list goes on.

3. death. It's a given, and all we can do sometimes is sit in the middle of it and let it pass by us and through us. I'll be attending two memorial services between Friday and Saturday. I don't like that. Not at all.

a weekend in SC

*speaking at mt hermon this weekend to middle school kids :: I forgot how funny these little buggers are! It's a good refresher of a weekend, to say the least.

*the current fuller class on theologian NT Wright is kicking my booty.

*the writing of the novel has been put off through this weekend - oh, to achieve 50,000 words. :)

*roommate James moved out today - it'll be interesting to see the change within the dynamics of the house.

*had a solitude day down in Half Moon Bay the other day - how I miss living in ocean environments! (and besides that the time with jesus was good as well).

That is it right now - i'm waiting for my taco bell chips and cheese before heading to bed. :)
