There is a shit-ton of snow outside, and it's just going to keep coming! Hopefully today or some time in the next day or three the county will decide to plow our streets. Apparently they didn't think that the 6-7" of snow the other day warranted it. Since we're a new development, I think we get forgotten. sniff sniff... And since we're a new development, there aren't any mature trees or anything to block the blowing snow, so it's like a giant whirling dervish of snow outside. And who knows where it will land! It's actually been a nice quiet weekend. There were 2 hockey games and we missed both of them - Friday because we ended up hanging out with friends, and then last night the boy's friend was supposed to come with us and he bailed - which made the boy not want to go. Which was fine - saves me the money, and we listened to it instead. It sounded like a great one, though! I miss seeing our friends, but we'll see them after the first of the year.
Christmas shopping is pretty much done. Much easier this year! Anywhooo.... on to the Sunday fun that I found here (granted it says Saturday, but it still is good!) He's got a great blog - good reading there. :)
1. On an average year, how many days before Christmas do you generally finish your Christmas shopping?
HAH! I usually finish my shopping AFTER Christmas, because there is invariably someone that I won't see until after the big day. But for Christmas morning presents, it's usually Christmas Eve. LOL
2. Is the economy making you spend any less on gifts this year, or are you spending about the same?
I am spending way less this year than I have in years past. The boy is older, doesn't believe any more, and really doesn't need that much. He's also getting more practical gifts, too. Plus it makes it easier that I don't have to buy for anyone else, too. A lot of shopping was spent on the fuckwit's family in years past, and while it was fun - I'm sure that now they don't get any presents (he is a notorious bad or non-gifter LOL - just ask me about the coupons some time) He's also been known to claim that he's Jewish that week as an excuse. But I digress..
3. What part of the Christmas scene do you find the most chaotic? What part do you generally worry most about?
Really, I don't find any part of it chaos. I love it all. I'm not a big worrier, either - if I forgot someone, I get them something later, that's all. I suppose I worry that the boy won't like his presents, but he always does.
4. Take the quiz: What Movie is Your Christmas Most Like?
Your Christmas is Most Like: A Very Brady Christmas
For you, it's all about sharing times with family.
Even if you all get a bit cheesy at times.
5. What Christmas movie is your favorite? Which one is your least favorite?
It's a Wonderful Life, or A Christmas Story. I've never gotten into the newer ones, it's all about the classics for me!
6. What Christmas tradition from years past do you miss the most now?
Christmas Eve with the whole family together. That was chaos! And I guess it's not so much the tradition, it's the people that kept it up that I miss more than anything.
