The Holidays. They mean different things to different people. In my opinion, it should be a time for family. And of course, God. I know there are those out there that don’t believe in the Man upstairs, but I choose to. So go to hell.

But the Holidays aren’t only about the good wholesome stuff like one’s loved ones and one’s faith. It’s also about something more depressing. Like shopping. But for now I’m not going to focus on the misery the Holidays bring. Let me focus on the good.

My sister, niece, and nephew flew in from Hawaii in time for Thanksgiving. My sister already went back to the islands, but the kids are still here, and will be until early January. My aunt and cousin flew in from Costa Rica for the holidays. They are all staying with my folks. Plenty of room in that big house of theirs. And believe me when I tell you, my parents love this stuff. They adore those kids and having them around makes them happy. It’s rare that so much family is around for the Holidays. So I’m taking it all in as well. :)

Now, back to my misery. I love giving gifts. I love giving the right gifts. What I loathe is the process. I hate shopping. Absolutey hate it. I don’t like malls. I don’t like fighting for parking spaces. I just hate shopping. So you may be able to see how this time of year would add stress to my normally stress free existence. Online shopping comes in handy right about now.

So I am doing my best to enjoy the Holidays. But still, if you feel like making a few bucks and doing my shopping for me, I have a shopping list I can give you.

  • If you're going to insult someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you insult them, you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.
