Thought for your Friday

It's overcast here in Chicago this Friday.  Not raining, but overcast.  Perfect weather for some reflection.

Yes, it's made by Cleveland Clinic, which is one of the hospitals we work with.  (Yes, it really is that white.  And yes, I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with that health system.)  But none of that is the point.

I always try to stop when someone is rude to think that I don't know what's going on in their lives.  I am probably not successful the majority of the time, but I try.  Yes, this video is focused on a healthcare perspective, but I think it's something to think about in all facets of life.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and take a little time to reflect... it's good for you ;)

p.s. Update
Janie Rubes was nice enough to share a video that I think is what I was trying to mumble my way through.  
I wish I had a way with words... I don't.  Today in yoga something happened while Molly and I were talking with our instructor after class and I just stood there and immediately looked at my feet and said something that didn't make anyone feel better.  Molly said something perfect.  And later I told her what a way with words she has and how I appreciate it.
This rant has nothing to do with the video.
Here it is and thanks to Rubina:


  1. Okay so this is the second video you've posted this week and it hasn't been my favorite one. So now you get to watch this one and we can talk about it on Sunday.

  2. I mean, I loved the videos you shared too! I wasn't trying to be a jerk.

Veggie Tinga

I made Vegetarian Tinga for a mexican pot luck I went to on Tuesday.

Many people have never heard of Tinga, let alone knowing you can make it vegetarian style.  You absolutely can!  And it's so easy.

Traditional tinga is made of shredded chicken with chipotle flavoring.  I used cabbage instead of the chicken.

I looked at a lot of different recipes online, but couldn't find a recipe for the veggie tinga I had in mind, so I ended up combining the guidelines of those recipes and making my own.

Here's what I did:

1 onion
1 head of cabbage
1 7oz. can chipotle (the peppers in adobo sauce)
5 ish roma tomatoes
olive oil

-Saute onion in olive oil.
-Chop cabbage (I used youtube to help me figure out the best way to do that) add to onion and saute.
-Blend the chipotle and tomatoes in blender.
Note:  Some people only like to add the sauce from the chipotle peppers.  I added the entire can (including the peppers themselves).  It's up to you depending on how spicy you want it.  (I like my food s…


*Karen tells me that is not what I'm supposed to say, but it makes sense in my head...

Saturday I was in San Antonio for work, I did get to hang out with a friend while I was in town so that definitely made the trip better, combined with the fact that the volunteers there are just wonderful.

I knew Sunday was going to be overwhelming before I left on Friday.  I always write lists when I'm overwhelmed, I wrote a list.  (Even though I hardly referenced it on Sunday.)  Just writing it down helps me feel better.

Sunday we registered for at two places, starting at 9am.  When we finished the second one (which we were both dragging ourselves through) it felt like it was time for was 2pm.  Guys, this experience brought so much clarity to people's registerys.  I would not necessarily say it was a fun experience.  And I am very happy Mike seems to have a vision because we would limit the insane number of options down to a couple options together and then I would say I don'…

5 Year Journal - Again

I know I've mentioned my 5 year journal here before, but now that I'm in my second year and everyday I get to look back at what I did that day last year I can't tell you how much I love it.  And I imagine I will love it more and more as the years go on.  I'm already dreaming of year 5!  

It takes a maximum of 5 minutes to jot down a few notes from the day and then you move on.

I have this one.  (I'm pretty sure it was more than $12 when my grandma got it for me so that looks like a steal.)
But this one looks amazing!
