Ok now this my come as a complete surprize to some of you. Some of you are going to wanna smack me for posting this, and some of you are already aware of this and are just like me but.....
Christmas is in Exactly 2 months! There are only 59 shopping days left! Somebody posted on my FB news feed last night there were 8 Saturdays left Until Christmas... It sent me into a state of panic...
I am a die hard Christmas nut! I love the holiday, I love everything about it, except the fact that I am a low in come family, who panics each year in how were going to afford it.. Some how we always do, but that doesnt mean I dont freak still. We will scale back the amount the kids get this year. My boys are older now, and want more expensive things. This will mean, less under the tree for them. I have explained it to them and they are ok with it.
While I cant really totally freak out, I did start the beginning of the month by putting a layaway on. I got the two big things I wanted for my DD already. So that is a HUGE weight off my shoulders. I plan on adding to my layaway possibly tonight for the few things my middle son has asked for. A $60 xbox game(the only darn one he will be getting from us) and a playdoh set for him as well. He is 10 and enjoys building and creating.
So that is my crazy freak out for the day. For the ones who are done... I envy you! For the ones in the same boat as me... Lets be each others suppor system LOL.
