  • Bless your heart! I hope it works out for you. We have almost finished, but I really couldn't go all out for the family and my husband and I aren't getting each other gifts. We're just mainly getting gifts for the kids this year.

  • My husband was counting on the kids to have a big/nice christmas this year , one like they never had . He has jobs that was supose to be done about 2 weeks ago but some of the employees are lacking off and he is having to pay others what he would make off the job to get it done faster . Untop of that he don't get paid on the job till it is finished .

  • I only have gifts left to buy for my hubby that's all. We are down to one car so I don't know when that will be. Now that we have to pay to have some body work done to hubbies car (it was hit by a tree in an ice storm on friday and we have to pay the deductible) I will probably only get him 2 things. It totally sucks but what can you do. Good Luck with your shopping I hope your miracle comes.

  • Oh woman I'm in your shoes all the way,my husband is also self employed and his job wont pay out till later on this week. I asked him if we could just do something simple like fill their stockings and go shopping after christmas is over. I dont know what to do cause they need clothes so badly and shoes. I just wouldnt have time to run around and shop and work too.ughhhhhh I need a miracle.
