I am thankful for a life that seems easy and for challenges that I am able to neet. I am thankful that my wife's parents are finally moving toward assisted living and are finally allowing me to fix their house up (even though it's going to end up being sold for medicaid after they spend all their savings on nursing homes).
I'm thankful for a wife and kids who love me and who cause me no discernable trauma. (and I hope they can say the reverse is true).
And I am most thankful to God who sustains me daily. In fact, all these thanks are to Him and to His son.
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.
You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.
"I have no reason left to live. Now where the hell does this 7 go?" (Spank E)
As much as I've been complaining about not having heat (our furnace has been broken for almost three months and my parents are in the process of getting the money to replace it) I know it could be a lot worse. At least I've got a house. So that, and finally getting to where I want to be (re: job, etc.)
My wife, my parents' good health, her parents' improving health, my dogs (they're the closest thing to children I have), and the opportunities I've had that have allowed me to obtain a good education and lay the foundations of a good career.
University of Kentucky basketball isn't a matter of life and death, it's much more important than that.
We got my Mom a Senseo coffee maker for her last birthday. Both her and Mrs. JJD say they're the best. We just bought my stepdad a Captain Morgan logo T-shirt for his birthday last week (kind of a gag gift)
