The paradigm

Happy Tuesday!  Is it going well for you so far?   I am typing this blind this morning (pretty literally), so please excuse any typos.  I lost my glasses over the weekend, and since then I've been wearing really old contacts that I haven't brought myself to smash over my poor eyes this morning.  Luckily, this should be the last day of that, since I was able to get an optometrist appointment for this morning.

That's been pretty much the standard for my life the last couple of weeks, it feels like.  We have been on the go almost constantly for the last couple of weeks, and it doesn't look like it will be abating anytime soon.  I love living a busy life.  I love knowing that there are things to do, and that I'm not wasting this precious gift I have been given.

We made it out to Red Rocks for a concert.  That's one of those special Colorado things that you can't bottle up and explain to people.  They just have to go experience it for themselves.

We redeemed a Living Social deal for a super fancy Steakhouse that's in the basement of an old bank building in downtown Denver.  I made Ammon wear a suit.  We had before dinner cocktails.  I wish good deals like this came up more often.  We like living fancy.

And we drank beer with some of our favorite people.  These guys make me laugh so incredibly hard.

Our life totally doesn't suck, and I feel like on some level, this may come across as me showing off.  That isn't what I'm after.  There were major hiccups with each of these days, hiccups that have, in fact, been overshadowing the awesome parts in my mind.  That's dumb, because each of these times was pretty great.  I got to b with the man I love, doing special things.  That's pretty great, and this is my declaration that I am trying to focus on the positives in each of these events over the bad parts.

As Ammon once overheard a stoned trust-fund hippie in Boulder say, "It's the paradigm man, The paradigm."  Indeed, Boulder hippie, you could not be more correct.
