My friend Paula Swayne tagged me in the newest MeMe, the Christmas MeMe. Here are the rules:
You have to name one gift you would like to have on Christmas. It has to be an object. We all want happiness for Christmas. If you could pick one single gift out for yourself-what would it be? Remember-it has to be something you can touch and hold.... Once you have done this, name five people or more and send this to them for them to name the one special gift they would like to have.
Frankly, I am one of those people who pretty much has everything I could possibly want. I have a wonderful wife and two great kids, a semi-crazed brother who I love, some incredible friends and for the most part, a good level of the intangible things in life like health, happiness, peace of mind, and a good outlook no matter what the day brings! Financial security would be nice but it's never guaranteed is it? My wife and I want to remodel our house (especially the kitchen) and would like to travel a lot more.
People always laugh when I tell them that if I won the lottery, I would do two things; Quit work to play (no, I am not one of those nuts who would go to work the next day) though I enjoy my job but simply have too many things I really enjoy outside of work. And the second thing would be to have someone drive me around in some kind of big safe extremely comfortable car with all the bells and whistles. I would also like my "chauffeur" to go through my magazines and take out all of those pesky "inserts" and advertising cards that fall out as you read, so I can avoid the irritation they cause. I believe this is called "magazine grooming". Like I said...I already have pretty much everything I need and I'm alive!
Okay, I seemed to have veered off track here. Paula also told me that it must be a "material" item so here goes and I have to tell you it's something of a "guilty" pleasure. Because I DO drive quite a bit and don't care for it that much (I blogged about this awhile back: Two Words...that could save your life! ) I like to be as comfortable as possible while behind the wheel. When I work with buyers I drive our Lexus which is nice but lately I have been eyeballing something different. I thoroughly researched this, drove several and finally came to a decision. Granted, the back seat is probably crowded but maybe it would encourage buyer's to make a faster decision. OOPS, did I actually say that? I was planning on making a purchase sometime next year until the downturn and our son starting college and well, you know how it goes...So as long as we are wishing for something from Santa, I want one of these fine rides...I know, I can already hear some of you but I am built for comfort and it's truly a guilty pleasure!
Okay, now to pass this on and please forgive me if your not one who likes doing meme's like me!
