Question Of The Day - Wednesday, December 3rd!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi All

Sorry I'm so late today. I had to work today (yeah, it's supposed to be my day off!) I tried to post at 4 am, but my internet was down. I just got home and spent the last 1/2 hour on the phone with Charter. Grrrrrrr! Aggravating, but at least the cable is back on-line.

Here's today's Question Of The Day...

How many people/pets do you buy or make Christmas presents for? How far along in the process are you?

I buy for 8 people and 4 cats. Mom, Dad, sister, sister's cat, 2 aunts, my cats, TCS Secret Santa, Work Secret Santa, the doctor I work with all the time. I have most of it done. I still need one big gift (I don't have a clue what to get Dr. Z this year) and a couple of stocking stuffers. This weekend will be the present wrapping extravaganza. It's usually chaos, with the girls, ribbon, paper and tape! Oh yes, the boxes....they always have to investigate the boxes, and make sure they pass the cat scan for comfort and durability.

As our close family dwindles, so does our gift-giving. I buy for DH, his son and SO, a couple of Secret Santa exchanges, one or two close friends, and any critters associated with those humans, which probably amounts to a dozen or so cats and four or five dogs, as well as our own cats of course.

I buy gifts for the kitties of course, a couple close friends, 3 neices and 2 nephews.

Several years ago my brother, 2 sisters, and I agreed that instead of exchanging gifts we would each chip in $100 then we donate the money to a program that is called Share the Wealth.

I still buy/make (make this year) presents for my aging parents (even though mom is impossible to figure out, and dad says don't do anything), both my brother and sister, and whatever friends I find inspiring stuff for! (an example: a friend of my LOVES sheep... so I found some fabric panels at work of a sheep playing in all four seasons... I'm going to lightly quilt each one, starting with Winter... I may get all four done for Christmas, but we'll see... but I gotta come up with something for his wife... who's a closer friend...)

And then I buy for the cats... two of them. Although they REALLY don't need more toys... they have more than enough... Maybe a couple kitty beds or something... but I'd make those. No SS's this year...

This year I've already bought (and given) Rob's gift. We also have some family Xmas thing where we spend $25 each on a person under 18 (a couple gets two kids) and $50 for a couple...something Rob's family does.

We also have to buy for:
My mom, my dad, my brother
Rob's mom, his dad, his brother

I'm also packaging my TCS SS gift tonight (finally got something to keep everything from shifting in the box!)

That's all I believe. Easy Xmas this year because of the house stuff we have to buy and preparing for a mortgage payment in Jan/Feb.
