With Thanksgiving past we our now in to my favorite time of year- Christmas and Hanukkah. This has always been my favorite time for year since I was a child. My favorite part is the lights and smells, next is the delicious food, and lastly is the air of happiness. Everyone is so much nicer this time of the year, even if it is brief.
I love gift giving and making people happy. I have always been the thoughtful gift giver, always giving my loved ones the presents they want but would never by themselves or things they didn't even remember wanting but I take notes all year. Contrarily, my family says that I am hard to shop for. I don't understand how, I have many hobbies but for some reason they never understand how to talk to the people at the store to help find gifts.
For that reason I am posting my Christmas list on here so that they can all find it. Here it is is more or less in ranked order-
Road bike- all carbon is nice, but I am happy for carbon fork and seat post with good components. (i.e. Trek 1.5, Giant Defy 2, etc.)
Spare bedroom cleaned out and organized by someone other than me, coat of paint a bonus, new carpet and I'll love you forever. It would be nice to be able to use the office/pain cave.(let's face it, I'm king of home repair and small projects here, this one i want to enjoy and it would be nice to not have to do it myself)
