Usually I am almost done with my shopping at this point. If I'm not done, I usually have a list of what I want to get and just haven't had time to pick it up yet. I think that's part of my problem this year. I have NO IDEA what to get ANYONE! It's like my creative mind has been wiped blank. You may remember that last year I made a great deal of my gifts. Yeah, that' not happening this time around. Gift giving is fun for me. I love to find the perfect gift for each person who is special to me. This year--drawing a blank. Also, on top of just not having any clue what to get people, our budget has obviously been drastically cut. Michael has been out of a job since April, so that changes things. Then you throw in a move to Texas and that really changes things. Sure, my bosses are paying to move us, but other expenses will come up (getting new drivers license and registration for example). I've already had to narrow my list down to the minimum, but I'm still a bit overwhelmed. Luckily, Michael and I have decided not to exchange gifts this year, so that will be a HUGE money and time saver for me.
I'm going shopping today with my sister and my friend Laurie. Maybe they can inspire me? Can you help me out? What's on your Christmas list? What are you getting those hard to shop for people? Only 36 days until Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!
