Dear Santa

Dear Santa,

It has been another long year.  You know that I spent the first six months without a job, and the second six months trying to get everything back in order.  You also know I took a little pay cut as a result of the transition. I know you're pretty busy with taking care of the wishes and wants of children around the world, but if you could just look through my list I'd appreciate it.

- new brakes for the van
- new brakes, passenger side mirror, and driver's side rear door handle for the car
- a new garage door
- paint for the inside walls of the house
- a front side walk that isn't cracked and sinking
- a finished basement the kids can play in
- payment on any number of debts (school loan, credit card, hospital bill)
- a little vacation time for my wife and I
- a riding lawn mower
*Forgot to mention a laptop or netbook so I can work at coffee shops.

I know its kind of an expensive list but nothing on it is real greedy, mostly just stuff that needs to be fixed, paid off, and to make life a little more enjoyable for my wife.  I've done my best to be good this year - much better than I was last year.

I don't know if you read blogs, but if you do, maybe you'll have something at the bottom of your bag Christmas night that you can drop down my chimney.

Thanks,
Brenton

PS - Sorry for telling my kids you are not real.
