The Art of Standing Still
Right now I am lying on the floor, typing. It’s not the most comfortable position in the world to accomplish this task but it’s okay for the end of the day. I’ve accomplished everything that I set out to do and have set myself up for success tomorrow. I do not need to do more and am very content in finishing the day as is.
My Dad Wrote a Porno

National Hot Chocolate Day

Growing up this was always seen as the 'American thing' but now I get the sense that perception has rapidly changed. From irritation to a much-loved childhood engagement. It is certainly something that I never engaged in growing up but I get the sense that our children will be pulled into it. I fully intend to eat most of the sweets!
