Makin' a list...


I sat down today and wrote out all the names that I HAVE to buy presents for at Christmas. Normally I would never worry about it this early, but I am not going to have a lot of work over the next few months and will be off for a whole 6 weeks over the holidays for my Carpal Tunnel surgery, so I am trying to plan ahead! The list keeps getting longer and longer, thus more and more expensive! Everyone needs to either stop having kids, or the older folks may need to call it good and die. Ha! Just kidding. In this economy I really think we need to cut back this season, but even when I trimmed the budget it was still close to 1,000 dollars! Yikes! I have a small family. I have no idea how people with big families do it! How do you all handle it?

We got everyone the same thing last year. Wine! HAHA
The kids all got something different though.

I know when I was a kid they always drawing for who buys who presents that year. That way everyone gets something but no one has to go broke. And everyone gets a different person every year

Make stuff! I like your toffee, and your fudge, and those spicy pecans. I am making jam and bbq sauce and of course the indestructable dishcloth. I don't want to become Auntie though and have everyone think I am color blind, but gosh those pot holders never wear out!

I can't make toffee here for some reason, I am not sure if it's the humidity or what. I am a big fan of the pecans though...I love those dishcloths so much. They do last forever! I am not really clever enough for making gifts, nor do I really have the time anymore. I may do more of that in the future...
