Tree Dreaming


So I keep meaning to make this post and forgetting, and I'm thinking about it now so I'm doing it now.

Christmas is coming. The goose is getting fat. I don't know about you, but I'm broker than crap. Last year, I spent a lot of time and effort trying to make/get gifts for everyone I cared about, and I ended up dissolving in a fit of stressed out tears. I don't really want to do that again this year, so I'm not going to get gifts for anyone for Christmas.

This doesn't mean I don't love you! It means I'm broke, damn it, and I can show you I love and care about you in other ways, like spending time with you.

I also am not expecting anything for Christmas from anyone. I'm trying to clear clutter and unnecessary items from my home (it's an ongoing process), and while I will always appreciate the thought of a gift, I don't need something that is being given out of an implied obligation. You are free of your obligation to get me anything for Christmas. :)

IF you are a CRAZY PERSON who wants to spend money on me anyway, I will point you in the direction of my Wishpot Wishlist. You may note that I have Whole Foods gift certificates listed. Right now, the toughest thing for me is not having money to buy good, healthy food. If you feel like you still want to get me something for Christmas, get me a Whole Foods gift card! I'd be happy with anything on that wishlist, but food is priority number one right now.

Anyway, that's about it. The holidays are supposed to be about all that warm, gooey stuff that's in our hearts anyway, right*?

*Not blood. That other stuff. Love?
