Two holidays down... one more to go.
I decided to treat myself this year to a nice,
I'm dedicating the days between now and the 1st of December
to taking it slow...
and doing one nice thing for myself and the man
each of those days.
Today its a nice long hot soak in the tub for me!
The man gets stuffed bell peppers, pilaf and fresh zucchini for diner.
A meal that does not include
one single left0ver!
I have no desire to brave the shopping crowds!
The best deals are between the 15th
and the 20th anyway.
Things are a bit tight for us this year.
The man was laid off just before Thanksgiving...
and that feast set us back
enough to buy 4 decent presents.
We don't know how long the lay off will last.
They said "hopefully not too long".
We decided not to get gifts for each other...
that can wait.
Our focus will be on the 5 grand kids...
and the 2 grand babies to be.
We decided to buy American.
That is not easy to do since most of the things
the kiddos want for Christmas are
not made here.
Leggos for example.
And we would like the toys to be not only
made in the USA,
but the company corporate offices here as well.
If money is going to be shelled out into
we want it to stay here,
So I'll be busy researching that.
But not until December 1st!
All things in due time.
