It’s Christmas Eve!

Man, Christmas has snuck up on me this year.  I remember thinking, Oh it’s September I will start shopping for Christmas even though I have three months to go. Yeah, right.  Although I did buy my niece a cute onsie that says Baby Sister and a headband for her parents wedding next year back in October.  But now it’s Christmas Eve and I just begun my Christmas shopping. This morning. At 10am. But that’s okay cause I am downstate at school working and won’t be celebrating Christmas until Friday night, so I got plenty of time, or so I tell myself.

I know Christmas is a time to be with family and not supposed to fret over presents but I hate deciding and choosing what to buy for people.  I want a straight answer so I get them something they want or need, and it makes me feel somewhat like a grinch.

“What do you want for Christmas?”

“Anything is good.  Maybe something for my truck, or a movie.”

“Like what for your truck? And what type of movie?”

“A funny one. And anything for my truck.”

What TYPE of funny movie? I know what I find hilarious, usually sarcasm and awkwardness, and some people might not find that funny. Want Will Ferrel funny or Zoolander funny?   And if you don’t tell me specifically what you want for your mudding truck I’m going to buy you a pink fuzzy steering wheel cover, some pimpin’ dice and a flower car seat cover. Makes me feel like a grinch sometimes, but I want straight answers. Like…

A brand new black ferrari. Easy peasy, hotwheels has that on sale for .95 cents right now at Walmart.

A bumper sticker that tells people to back off.  I saw this awesome one that said “If you’re going to ride my ass, at least pull my hair.” Hilarious. I laughed for minutes. I want.

Anywho, I am spending Christmas Eve at work. Making bank.  We had a lovely family here who let me decorate Christmas cookies and eat a scruptiously delicious KFC meal, and gave me a stuffed penguin. 🙂 Sure beats sitting at home watching Nikita, although that’s my newest favorite show, and sadly I am almost finished with the second season and that’s all thats on Netflix right now.

Everyone have a Merry Christmas 🙂 Or Happy Holidays if you don’t celebrate Christmas.

It’s already November!

Oh my goodness! 43 days and 15 hours until Christmas is here, how many of you are ready? I know I’m not.  It’s not even Thanksgiving and Meijer has been playing Christmas music.  My lovely sister, however, has already made or bought nearly all her gifts so we’ll have to see what she decides to do for Black Friday, one of my favorite holidays. 

For the past four or five years the girls of my family head out for some early morning shopping and good deals, a lunch break at Red Lobster (always, always, ALWAYS Red Lobster) and back to the sales until at least 3. This year I don’t even know what to get anyone – as we get older people quit saying what they want, or they want things way past my budget (I’m a poor college student). But I am driving my sister crazy cause I don’t have a list. Eh.

Got any ideas for me?

-My mom and her boyfriend just moved into a new house.
-My sister, her fiance and their 2 kids have pretty much everything they need. Maybe wedding stuff?
-My brother and his girlfriend also just moved into an apartment together, with 2 new dogs.
-My boyfriend just bought a truck. And likes to hunt. I know ABSOLUTELY nothing about hunting.
-My dad, well… he has a mullet.

Any suggestions would be sincerely appreciated. Until next time…
