Christmas is taking shape

Thursday, November 19, 2009
Nothing special - I don't have a Christmas tree up yet, a wreath on the door or even the lights up. Ok, that last one is a lie. The lights have been up (although not plugged in) for a couple of weeks. No, I'm taking presents. The Admiral will be getting a gift card for our local cinema for her birthday, the week before the holiday. Then for Christmas, I've got her a Toronto Maple Leafs t-shirt (she's going to love it), I'm 2/3 of the way through her homemade mittens, a copy of Ken Burns' documentary on baseball, some fabulous dark chocolate (purchased closer to Christmas), a candle and holder, and a couple of crossword puzzle books (she loves them). I think that's it. Oh and I made her a "gift certificate" for a walking partner on the weekends and I'm going to take a nice pic of myself in front of the tree once it's up and frame it for her. She's always complaining how she doesn't have pictures of me (I hate getting my picture taken!!!). Hopefully it'll turn out and I can give a framed copy to my dad as well.

Big Brother's offspring are going to get the DVD of UP or Ice Age, or possibly both and a couple of bath bombs from Lush. I finally figured out what to get the Sister in law...she loves Lush so I'm going to either give her a gift card or buy her something small. Considering the cost of items there, she'll likely get the gift card. Big Brother is going to get a copy of Alien Apocalypse. Whew. And that's the end of it.

Except for the cats. Shhhh...don't tell them but they're going to get tuna and catnip. Really the only two things they care about anyways.

Dear god, no wonder the holidays are stressful. Are you prepared yet? Just over a month away...

I'm not going to give anything to anyone this year, except for my niece.
I have no money of any kind, and that solves all problems.

I'm with Milla. I have no money. Well, I am making a big dinner on Solstice, and that is my main gift. But because I've been busy with NaNoWriMo, I haven't done any baking yet. It'll be a baking bonanza come Dec. 1, I can tell you that!
