Time to Say Thanks

25 Nov

It’s the day before Thanksgiving, so I thought I’d continue my tradition of posting a list of some of the things I’m thankful for this year:

* My job. No, this is not a suck-up thing. Starting a new job at the beginning of this year has done nothing short of change my life in many good ways. I’m thankful I got a new job, that it’s at this company, that I work with the people I work with, and that it’s all been pretty great for me so far. (And I’m also thankful for the friend who referred me and helped me get the job in the first place.)
* My niece, Abby, who continues to make me smile and laugh even though she has no clue she’s doing it
* Mrs. Freshley
* Bruce Springsteen, still going strong at age 60
* My iPhone
* The Matty in the Morning show — specifically the podcasts, which allow me to catch up on and listen to the show at any time of the day
* This
* Facebook, for the hours and hours of amusement it brings me (and allows me to bring to others)
* Blake Lively’s legs and whoever’s dressing her for awards shows
* Good friends
* Ruth’s Chris Steak House
* The cover of “Somebody to Love” by the cast of Glee
* Modern Family — particularly the deadpan idiocy of Ty Burrell
* The new Star Market in Chestnut Hill
* The Interwebs, which allows me to find and download music by my favorite singers months before it’s released
* Hood’s Green Monster Mint ice cream
* … and of course, you, my dear readers. Whether you read these posts at Martin’s Musings or on Facebook, you encourage me to keep at this. Four years in and I’m not slowing down.

I hope you have a great Thanksgiving and that it’s as full of turkey and gravy as I’m hoping mine will be.
