Where's the Zyrtec?

I have such sweet blog friends! Thank you, all, for your encouragement sympathy. I think any new chapter in life not only brings sweet times but also a little bit of pain and frustration. I have been doing much better since I posted last. I think your comments helped me a great deal! That, and the fact that Austin brought me flowers last night. I have such a wonderful husband! :-)

Although there's no establishment that can replace my beloved Coffee Station, I believe that I have discovered my "grown-up" Coffee Station, complete with sophisticated-sounding drink names and wealthy businessmen instead of scruffy college students. The owners are incredibly nice and they make sure that you get a cold glass of ice water after your Cioco Delice, which, by the way, is my favorite new "drink" at this coffee shop. I use quotations because you have to eat it with a spoon. A Cioco Delice is essentially chocolate soup, and it is delightful! It's hot and has frothy whipped cream on top, as well as a rich chocolate drizzle. You can't go wrong with a chocolate drizzle! I come here to use the free wireless internet and enjoy chocolatey goodness, a relaxed and soothing atmosphere as well as excellent service and relatively low prices. You can't beat that. Plus, I think they play Frank Sinatra.

Yesterday I did something dangerous: I picked up a book. I'm not much of a reader, to be honest, but when I do start reading (a book I am truly interested in - not a textbook or anything!) I can't put the book down! I was organizing the apartment and I noticed Searching For God Knows What by Donalad Miller in a stack of books. I have read this book before, and I'm sure I blogged about it, but I picked it up again because I couldn't remember exactly what it was about. All I remembered is that I love Donald Miller and am always amazed by his writing! I read for several hours yesterday which rarely ever happens. I'm a slow reader, however, so I'm only on page 87 or something like that.

Wow, I hope I'm not getting sick. I've been sneezing all day and I'm starting to feel a little icky. Maybe it has something to do with how it was 80 degrees yesterday and now it's 39. Seriously, though, where's the Zyrtec when I need it?

Well, I'm about done here. It's time to blog stalk and spend a few more hours on the internet before going back home.

Love to you all!
