That pretty soon I'll get to have LOTS of time with my sweetie!  :)

(Worst thing in my life right now- a mysterious ceiling leak the roof guy couldn't find the source of when he was up in the attic and can't go up on the roof to fix right now, due to the really freaky bad weather we're having)...  >:(

OH OH OH hate random roof leaks.... we fought one for *years* - never could find it...  even after an entire reroof of our roof.   (that didn't sound right).

Finally found it when the plumber was researching a totally unrelated problem...   someone had used a cardboard pipe piece for the vent stack sticking out our room - and had covered it ... but still - it was flippin cardboard for about 3 feet into our house!  Sheesh.     Which explained that in only very specific circumstances would it leak. 

Houses ... lol.

Ok - happy thing...  the single best thing in my life right now and to ever happen to me is my wife, Heidi.

It may be a sappy answer to some but, easily my Wife of 17 years and my three boys (14yrs, 5 yrs & 16 mo)!

I was going to say, if I answer this question honestly then everybody makes fun of me for being sappy... but since other guys ahead of me have dared to mention their wives, I've got to say Lena is easily the best thing in my life at the moment, and the greatest thing that's ever happened to me.

It's nice there are other sweetheart boys on here who love and appreciate their ladies!

I long ago stopped caring if I sound sappy...  Heidi is truly the best thing that has happened to me - and I've spent just about 20 of my 40 years on the earth with her - so I think I can safely say ... yes - she's the best.  ;-)

Now if I was going to say something else - I'd say my love of music and ability to play and write is up there.  It's a part of me - it always has been - and I do hope it always will be.

I have to join in and say my wife of almost 28 years, Kathy is the best thing in my life. Also, unlike a lot of people I talk to, I have a family which gets along well and enjoys each others company. Even though my brothers and I are very different people, we enjoy getting together and even vacation together. I just got back from a vacation with my brother, sister-in-law and nephew spending about a week in their cabin in the mountains of North Carolina. Last, but not least, rapidly approaching 60 years of age, I am still alive and in seemingly good health.

Never regret money spent on old books, old dogs or old friends.

I changed my mind about Lena, because she ate the pizza I left in the refrigerator. Can you believe that?  ;)

Forgiveness and unconditional love -- two concepts invented before pizza.

I guess the fact that Kathryn and I are all in relatively good health and have jobs is what I am most grateful for at this point. A co-worker of mine just lost her 4-year battle with cancer so that really puts things in perspective. Also, Kathryn and I recently had a deep heart-to-heart talk about our relationship and worked some stuff out that had been bothering us for a while, so we are closer now as a result. Now if we can just make it the 8 years to retirement when the house is paid off!
May the odds be ever in your favor.

It's a very lucky thing for me he's going to be getting some really good pizza again on Friday, (otherwise I might be dead and stuffed into the crawlspace by now...)

The best thing in my life right this second is that it's my LAST work day before vacation!  :)

Gallucci's pizza is one of the finest things in Lincoln City. I get to eat a giant fat combo pizza, and watch the Ducks on TV, trying to hold onto #1 against Arizona.  I hope it stays 22 degrees here and those Arizona boys don't know how to deal with the cold.

Definitely my girlfriend Simona and her two kids, Veronika and Daniel, that's the best thing in my life even if they don't share my passion for ambient... :(. Also rest of our families, good health, job, Leffe Brune, many friendships within ambient community...

As dumb (and sad) as this sounds, it's got to be my new car.  When everything around me right now is pretty much sh*t (my job, finances, social life, health), it's nice to know something's sparkly new n' nice, and reliable.  Then again, it won't technically be "mine" for five more years, so maybe I shouldn't be so happy about it.  ;D
