::puts fingers in ears:::lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala…I can’t hear you over all that racket.
Good grief…I don’t even want to think about it yet. It seems our gift list grows every year and it should be shrinking, by gum! The kids always get one “big gift”, then a couple few other things like books, CDs, some clothes, etc. However, this year, there really aren’t any “big” gifts to buy for them. They’ve got most everything. So, I think it’ll be clothes, CDs, gift cards, things like that for them.
The family and friends though…ugh. I have no idea. My mother is impossible to buy for and almost always returns the stuff I get her. It’s too itchy, it’s too this, it’s too that. Last year, we saved ourselves some hassles and got my mother, his mother, and my dad and stepmother gift cards to one of our new favorite, cool restaurants. They all loved it.
My two sisters and brothers-in-law present a challenge as well. I’ll have to figure something out. I think for the nephew we’ll get a gift card to one of his favorite stores. He’s sixteen, I don’t know what else to do.
There are other people to get gifts for as well. I really don’t know how we’re going to do it. Money is definitely getting tight again. I wish we could just draw names, but that doesn’t go over well with the family.:rolleyes:
