I am thankful that it is not last year. Remember last Thanksgiving? We're a very traditional family and had to forego our Thanksgiving traditions. We had a nice one, but still. And we missed seeing a lot of family. Andy was fresh off a hospital visit and his counts were very low. I was still reeling from the loss of my life mentor. But at least we were all happy that Andy's surgery was successful.

I don't really want to dwell on it.

  • I'm thankful that it is not last year.
  • I'm thankful Andy is cured.
  • I'm thankful we get to have a normal holiday season this year.
  • I'm thankful Joey's doing so well in school.
  • I'm thankful Julie found me in my early 20's or I wouldn't have made it to 30. And I truly believe that.
  • I'm thankful I have a wonderful wife and kids.
  • I'm thankful we have a wonderful extended family in P&B.
  • I'm thankful Greg is not Kanadian by blood (sorry P).
  • I'm thankful for the McRib.
  • I'm thankful that we're starting to get our heads above water financially (again).
  • I'm thankful that I get to trash Greg's house this Christmas.
  • I'm thankful for girls who are too pretty for pr0n but are nice enough to do it anyway.
  • I'm thankful that my golf swing was better this year.
  • I'm thankful that I'm healthy enough to play golf.
  • I'm thankful for the whole 80's revival thing going on musically.
  • I'm thankful for Schlafly beer.
  • I'm thankful that I'm old enough to have been there when GnR had real music. Metallica too.
  • I'm thankful that I'm young enough to not remember John Lennon being shot. (ooo! don't you feel old now?)
  • I'm thankful that I work in an industry that is growing despite the recession.
  • I'm thankful for not having ended a sentence with a preposition, rock on!
