The day the blog moved to WordPress...

I'm moving to WordPress officially.  Mostly because it looks pretty and feels oh-so contemporary :)  Check it out if you want:  http://ashcmorris.wordpress.com

Peace to you, Loves.

November 30, 2011: Thankful to be OVER

I have to say, all this blogging every day has zapped me of my creative juices!  My posts are less intriguing and deep by the day, so I'm going to revert back to my once-a-week habit and actually try to make them relate, etc.  There's nothing on it yet, but check out the WordPress site, because this here blog is shutting down!  In about a week, check it:  ashcmorris.wordpress.com  :)  It's been real, y'all.

But today I am thankful for validation that changing directions is the right thing.  For those who are older, wiser, and more seasoned than me, thank you for living life and leaving your insight behind.  I am rich because of you!

November 29

Today I am thankful for a change of pace.  A slower pace, even if it's for just a bit, but enough of a change to be able to take a few deep breaths in.  I'm thankful for a lingering evening that started with some cooking (of tortilla soup), transitioned into Tuesday night conversation with friends close to my heart, which is ending now with a Snow Day (New Belgium, I give you mad props.  I'm addicted.) and a book.  I just love when it ends slow like this, when I have time to unwind, not just fall into my bed.  Aahh.

November 25, 2011: Posted on November 26

Yep.  Behind behind. blah blah blah.  I was at a show, so I stayed up way past my normal bedtime enjoying the musical whimsey of Youth Lagoon.  Impressive.  And the crowd was fun, which makes for a great night on the scene [of which I am not scene-enough to be a part of].

Today I'm thankful for new people and friendships.  New conversations and experiences.  It's the kind of thing I need to stay sane.  Oh... and a desolate office, so I could have a little dance part-ay all to myself with my soy latte.

Peace.  Dream sweet, Friends.

November 24, 2011: Thanksgiving

It's one of my favorite holidays of the year.  Today I am thankful that I was with people I love.  Not my "real" family but a second family of sorts.  It's nice to feel at home, even when it's not my "home."

November 23, 2011: His Story

Today I tested a man at work, and he shared some of his life story with me, which was full of darkness and trouble but mostly sadness.  But he smiled and laughed.  Despite his life spiraling out of control, he believed in God.  And told me to have a blessed day and pray to God-whatever his name was-whenever I needed help, because he'd always be there.  His story reminded me of the what's true and important in life and why I should not be so discouraged by trivial nothings.  We need stories like his from time to time to stay human, I think.

November 23, 2011: Fun Forward Looking

I have plenty of wonderful things to anticipate, which I am thankful for as well:

  • Vacation!  I have three paid days of vacation.  That's a jackpot in nanny world!
  • Thanksgiving!  I'm super bummed my parents got the flu and can't make it out to Denver for T-Giving, but I am so thankful that I have a second family out here to spend it with.
  • Youth Lagoon is playing a show on Friday.  Enough said.  I avoid Black Friday like the plague, but I'll brave the streets to see this kid.  Pure talent.
  • Sleep is finally here, because I submitted my last final via email two minutes ago.  What what!  1/6 finished with my MSW!!!!!!!  That's absolute crazy talk. (oops, not supposed to say "crazy" anymore... that's a rough one to kick.)
