Well, today is Thanksgiving, so of course my list is going to be along that theme:
1) I'm grateful for excuses to take some time off of work to get together with family and eat copious amounts of food, because it's good for me to do that so I don't become a working drone.
2) I'm grateful that I was able to take my oldest son to play football in the annual "Turkey Bowl" for the first time this morning so that I have the great memories of him making a lateral pass (even if it was in a panic), pulling somebody's flags, and bobbling a few catches.
3) I'm grateful that we have the resources to have a comfortable life with a roof over my head, food on my table, and all the comforts of modern society so that I can have time to relax and enjoy myself doing "useless" things.
Well, there's my list for the day. Thanksgiving rocks! We have many of my in-laws in town and the house is quite full. With 10 children under feet, it's also very loud, but we're loving it. Tomorrow we expect to go to the beach and go kayaking, and then on Saturday we'll probably put up the Christmas lights. It's looking to be a great weekend!
Oh, and yesterday I took my youngest son to Six Flags Magic Mountain and we rode a total of 3 rides (Revolution, the Sky Tower, and Ninja) but we had a great time together.
The first moments of silence.
