All I Want For Christmas......and You?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Well, my original hint to my hubby was for a cute necklace but NOW, after reading the thread "Gorgeous KY Cats PTS", I found what I REALLY WANT is a gift cert., or other funds so that I can have an online shopping spree shopping for shelter pets & having it delivered. Hope it's not too late to change my mind.
What's on everyone else's wish list??
I hope that Santa gives us all what we want

I'm just looking forward to having a christmas with a family - my last few christmasses have been very strained and last year.... well we didn't have christmas. My little brother and I spent it together with turkey sandwiches. Mum had her mother to care for, and dad forgot we were coming. But it was nice that my little bro had made the effort to come over too, as long as I had him and Alex, I was happy.

This year, what I really want more than anything isn't going to happen, so to be honest, I don't particularly care what happens! There will be food, there will be music and people I love. That's good enough for me! I'm going to get me the dental treatment I really really need while I'm in Thailand, and that smile means more to me than I could say.

I'm not looking forward to Christmas without my son.... but I know he's going to be more than spoiled, from his side of the water and mine, and I know he's going to be so happy just to see all those toys! Most 5 year olds are! I miss him so much. My hearts desire is that he's going to be happy.

I want an MP3 palyer. Not much chance of anyone buying me one, so I'm going to use my employee discount and buy it for myself!

With luck, I'll hear from my mortgage guy and I'll be getting a house, as a late Christmas present for the critters and myself.

I really dont know what i want for christmas, Last year my mother was in hospital, and i tried to make a dinner and it came out as a disaster haha!

This year it will be Without Ben, and it kinda saddens me. (but i am happy that he will have a good time with his gfs family this year)

But i will have Teufel and Kaylee by my side! and he wont ner ner haha!

I think i need some clothes, but if i get money for this xmas then i will just pay off my bills..

Well, I want to be with my BF and our kitties. Thank God that I will.

As far as material things - I want money. I spent too much on Christmas.

Hmmmm....the list is long. What I want most (besides all the heartwarming things you guys so unselfishly wrote, of course) is that new Canon camera. It's a digital camera that can take 3 pics per second! My camera takes like 10 seconds to take one picture! It's like $500 though, but my parents usually get my brother and I one huge gift each, and I stressed it enough....maybe! My birthday is next month so maybe I'll get it then, maybe it will be cheaper after the holidays.

I really just want to go home!! Next Thursday I will be the happiest girl on the planet....Home Sweet Home here I come!!

The only thing I am asking for Christmas are gift certificates to Best Buy so I can get a computer for home! Which means TCS time after work too, haha! So hopefully I can hit up some good deals at Best Buy and get myself a good computer!

I surely understand! I was so used to haveing my family at Christmas. Even when my S & B moved away. At first my S would come with her family and my B with his girl friend. Then only my B and his girlfriend. They would stay overnight and we all were so gay and happy.

Then my Mom died, and my family stopped visiting me. My B is married and they go to HER family on all holidays and my S is too far away.

I also lost my precious babies I loved so much. First my Minnie, then my Schatzi and recently my Corkie. I DO have new babies I ADORE but still I miss my family - hum and fur so much. I am having trouble getting into the Christmas spirit.

I hope things turn out better for you than they will for me. I will be with my 4 kidties on Christmas and no humans - except that God made this Christmas fall on a Sunday so I get to go to a REAL Christmas service!

Have a good cry on me! I surely have been having enough of my own!

I already got my Xmas present from hubby. I'd asked for Photoshop, and he got me Paint Shop Pro X instead, but now that I have "PSP for Dummies", I'm having a bit of fun with it.

OMG, that's exactly what I want!! I'm starting an organization called The Santa Claws Project and we will be bringing toys and treats to shelter animals year round. The first page of the website is up but it's still under construction. My Mom asked me what I want for Christmas and I told her I want toys and treats for shelter animals. She said ok so I'm getting what I want for Christmas!!

Thanks guys. It's nice to know that when I'm having "one of those days" I can come here and find support and encouragment. So far it looks like it will be me and the kids only on christmas . Charlie has to be out of town so we wont get to see him christmas day. I guess the saddest part for me is that while mom and dad were alive everyone in the family came to our house for holidays and now that they are gone I havent heard from anyone in the family since feb. when mom passed. I feel almost forgotten. I call my aunts uncles and adopted brothers and sisters but no one ever calls or writes back. Some family huh? well i guess im gonna get off the pity me trip and go find something to clean... or break.

I want some snow shoes! That will probably not happen though. I would really love a small gold cross necklace, which may just happen. I would also like a new couch and a nice bed frame- a real wood bed frame. Those last two things won't happen either, but why not dream big!!

Hugs to you. I think all I want is for my adult son to realize his mom is still important and when he says he'll be over on the holidays he should actually do what he says. He has a habit of telling me he's going to do things and then not showing up......or calling. That's the "short" story version.....now, I think I'm going to cry.

i'm going to be single for christmas too, and to make matters worse, it would have been our two year anniversary new years eve

but, as far as i'm concerned i already have all i need for christmas. I had the courage to walk away from a destructive partner, great friends who were there for me 100% and supportive parents who have let me live on their charity for the past month and not hassled me to get a job.

i asked that instead of presents that my parents would give all the money to charity as i dont need anything really. my mum refused point blank as she said it would ruin christmas for her if i had nothing to open! lol!

i think we've compromised and i'm getting a smoothie maker and gym membership and maybe a donation to charity too.

That is so wonderful!!
I can remember a couple of rough Christmases, too - when I was first single, it was my daughters, cats & me because a blizzard closed the highway & knocked out the electricity, and my family & friends & I couldn't travel to each other (I was broke and my sis was bringing the presents). And the first & 3rd Christmas after my nephew was murdered And then the Christmases where my grandson was told he could be with us, and his dad would just change his mind and not let it happen And the Christmas when I had to go to work because my co-workers got hurt/sick & the restaurant didn't have enough servers as it was. Somehow, the day always turned out special, just the same.
There are so many touching stories here, from the mom whose son Alex is apart from her, to those who are unable to have the traditional family gathering. Yet all of you are still so compassionate & loving to each other here, and to the cats and other animals that we read about in the forums; the True Meaning of Christmas is really in your hearts, all year long,and I am so privileged to have joined your very, very special group. :hug:
