Giving Thanks

Well, I suppose today, Thanksgiving, will be an appropriate time for me to introduce myself and my family to you.

This is me.  This picture was taken at work for the launch of our website ('Our People' section).  I do my best to never be in front of the camera these days and for that reason had no recent pictures of myself for this blog.  This is a picture in a fitting setting, since I spend about 85% of my time not spent sleeping working.

I have an amazing partner with whom I am raising our amazing son.  This is Jacob Israel and Jeremy (also known as 'Jay').
  They are both incredibly intelligent and push me to be a better person each and every day, whether they know it or not.  This picture was taken on a very important day in our lives.  It was not only Jacob's first surgery, but the day he was able to hear clearly for possibly the first time in his life at two years old.  Since this surgery (a simple tubes in the ears and adenoidectomy), Jacob's vocabulary and increased 100-fold.  It is so interesting to watch him learn new things every day.

So of course I am most thankful for:

My supportive family.  These two guys, my wonderful mother and sister, my 'stepdad,' grandparents, and Jay's grandparents.
All the other typical things on most peoples' lists -
my health
my job and coworkers
my fabulous life.

And one last thing - 
Black Friday sales.
I'll be at Radio Shack at 5:00 a.m. sharp (they open at 5:30) to buy this little baby for $50.  It will be my first smartphone.  Wish me luck.

Happy Thanksgiving.
I hope everyone's bellies are full with delicious food.
Jay and John, I am so very sorry that you two are sick.
