Holiday Thanks…the “other” stuff!

With the holidays upon us and Christmas right around the corner, I guess it is that time to go over a few of the things I can be thankful for this time of year.
Of course it’s easy to go with the mainstays such as my wife, the birth of my first child, my job, my health, my house, etc, etc….But where is the fun in just that?
So let’s look at those more selfish 2nd tier items that I’m most thankful for at this time of year…

  • My TiVo – With a newborn in the house, it’s almost impossible to sit for a half an hour straight, uninterrupted. It also comes in handy when you are up with the baby at 3 in the morning and need to watch something just to stay awake!!!
  • My iPod – What would a day in the office be like WITHOUT good music!! Without it, the silence is deafening and sometimes counter productive. Plus with the iPod video, I have a quick way to show off all those baby pictures!
  • Quizno’s Subs – In a world of fast food, Quizno’s really is a step above all the others. Don’t waste you time any where else!
  • Target – This retailer is always top notch. Whether you need laundry detergent, printer cartridges or patio furniture, spending a Saturday afternoon at Target is time well spent.
  • Snow blowers – For anyone who has ever shoveled snow, you understand how much of a workout it really is. Thanks to the combustion engine, we thankfully now have the power to automatically blow the white stuff wherever we want!
  • Google – At one point, I would have have said the internet itself, but now with so much “stuff” out there, you need a way to find it and Google and it’s tools are the way to go!

Well there you have it, my selfish side!
