Hi all, I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New year.
We kicked off the holidays with my sister Jenny coming into town. We’ve been running around everywhere.
I’ve stressed myself trying to purchase gifts for everyone. I usually love giving gifts but this year (1st year married) I have just gotten stressed. I love finding the “perfect gift” for family members but this year, it seemed mediocre…maybe I waited too long to get started on my shopping. Maybe I’ve been trying too hard.
The kids are easy to buy for…I bought and bought and bought for them. It’s the adults that are killers. My dad, bless his heart, just goes out and buys whatever he wants so when it comes to gift time, there is nothing really for us to buy him. It’s so frustrating.
Then we are going out to dinner with family and friends and it all adds up. When did Christmas get so complicated? All I want to do is stay home, light a fire in the fireplace and watch some good movies maybe bakes some cookies…
Dennis and I are going to have to come up with some Christmas traditions for our family. Hopefully, we will keep things simple.
