I have had several Christmas get togethers already. The people giving the gifts knew me well, for the most part.
My uncle gave me a major hint about what to get him for Christmas, which was much appreciated. I received a Starbucks card from him.
My manager at work handed me a Fandango gift card and declared me the most impossible person to buy for. My coworkers stepped up to my rescue and told her she just doesn’t listen to me. That was great.
I had a friend give me a book that was on my to be read book. She already read it, so she gifted it to me because the book exchange she was going to required only new books over $15. She decided she wasn’t going to the exchange. I benefited.
Another friend pulled my name for the stocking exchange. I received a book mark, Giants, swimming, and Tinkerbell items, along with other things.
My kids gave me stuff for my upcoming trip and pjs for the family party last night.
My parents gave me a bottle of wine, a book seat (I’ll blog about that later), a couple of books, and chocolate. I also got a couple of Tinkerbell towels and more pjs. Mom couldn’t figure out how to gift ebooks, so I didn’t receive them from my parents.
This year, the gifts were well thought out. I feel like I was slacking on giving, but I did ok with the giving. It’s just that all the gatherings are spread out this year, so the gifts went over several paychecks.
I received snuggles from my nap buddy and was acknowledged by Mini. I was also allowed a three hour nap. So I got lovely gifts from the felines.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
