I have almost all gifts bought or made and most are wrapped too. I have a few stragglers that are dragging on. Some I wish were done already, but most I don’t mind continuing to work on.
My family gets all together on Christmas Eve for a party and this year we are doing a gift exchange (of $5 or less) just for fun. We drew names from a hat and we have to buy for the person whose name that we picked. At first I was really excited about the idea. But then I realized since we have 9 in our home, that works out to an extra $45 in gift money that I have to come up with. Ouch. Oh well, the children will have fun (and so will I). And my husband drew my name. I am imagining something very romantic from him. I hope he doesn’t feel pressured, lol!
Let’s see now, I have 9 gifts left to finish making. You may be thinking that is a lot to still finish, but if you knew how many I have already made you would think that I have been making good time 🙂 Oh wait, I have 10 to finish, lol. I forgot one.
While out shopping I used a coupon for $5 off at Hallmark and purchased a coffee mug…..or a cocoa mug 😉 It is really cute and I am honestly having a hard time parting with it. I haven’t bought myself anything this year during my shopping, I have been really good. So don’t you think I should be able to keep that much??? I agree, I really think that I should keep the mug.
Well, as my daughter just said, “What! You have been on that thing forever!” I had better get back to the real world.
