How's everyone's holiday shopping going? Are you done?

I'm nearly done and was hoping to finish tomorrow but the weather will keep me home. I'll do it Tuesday. I need Dominic's big gift still. But that child is so hard to shop for. His limited interests really inhibit my options. He only likes Pokemon, fishing and his DS.

We will shop one last time next Thursday. We will get some gifts for tanner and ornaments for the tree (only a couple). Pick up one or two things for the parents. Mine are visiting in jan so I may put that off. Other than that I think we are set.

I may get all gloomy on you, so I will apologize beforehand. I'm sorry!!!

I'm not feeling it this year. Not having much $ just sucks sometimes. Okay, most times. It is just do stressful. We basically did books and stocking stuffers. I have no idea what to do for Ray. I need to wait for payday before mailing out my niece & nephews stuff. My sick cats and dentists visits sucked our savings dry. Our outdoor christmas lights are dead.

I didn't register for my Mom's group because I needed to pay registration. Ha! We were supposed to register the littles for preschool. And pay registration & first months. Yeah, not happening. I think I will homeschool them. And while I'm at it, i may be pulling Izzy as well. She is already enrolled at K12 online public school. It is my fall back plan and is seems to be heading that way. Vent over.

Amy! Im sorry things feel down right now. I can attest to feeling the pressure of what makes a good Christmas per society standard. My mom will be here until christmas eve and I'm already dreading her asking me what the kids are all getting. Is there anything we can do to help?

Hugs Amy, I know it's not for the same reasons but because of the sudden house buying and moving, suddenly dealing with finances is down right miserable .

I also hate how commercialized and focused on gifts Christmas has gotten. We vow that once our kids are old enough to understand we will be picking a fun thing to "do" instead of purchasing gifts we likely don't need. Gifts will be limited to birthdays around here.

I like the idea of no more than three gifts (since Jesus got three) and Id like to create a tradition of giving somehow. Either by feeding meals at a shelter as a family, shopping for a needy family as a family, etc. Giving is so important and in our world it's a hard lesson to teach.
