So, I'm merrily living my life, giving massage, marketing a little, knitting a little ... and suddenly..
It's mid December and it's time to drive down to Edwardsville to pick Kitty up from college, and that means...
Holy Gift Giving Crisis Batman
I'm so very far behind!
I've not dug out the Holiday decorations.
I've not purchased the official ornaments for my daughters.
I've no time scheduled to purchase a tree, or set one up, or ... or anything.
I've not even thought of gifts to buy/make much less start them.
That's not to say that I hadn't been thinking, idly, about the Gift Giving Extravaganza. I'd actually ordered one or two things. But I sat and pondered knitting projects and gotten no where. I made that magic list of folks to whom I'd like to give things, but gotten no ideas.
I decided to try the holiday budget thing, and even signed up at MyChristmasBudget.com to help me keep things sane. There's a nice screen full of spaces into which I can enter gift names and prices....
But now that the big official giving day is less than ten days away, I'm suddenly facing the reality that I've no clue what to do.
NOW, I've thought of a few gifts I'd like to knit. Knitting them in time is, of course, unrealistic. Knitting them in time to mail them is impossible.
I'm thinking of calling myself a Wise Man this year. They didn't have to cough up gifts until January 6th.
