Thinking About Christmas..........

The past 2 years have been financially difficult (to say the least). My kids Christmases have kind of sucked, with us scraping change for even 2 presents a piece. It's broken my heart! This year is going to be VERY different! I've been doing a 12 week unpaid extern-ship as a part of my school. I just found out that my extern site is going to hire me! I'll be making $9.50 an hour, after 10 years without an outside job, this is awesome! I'm already thinking about the presents we are going to be able by then this year! They are getting a new bike a piece, double park season passes to the 2 main amusement parks in our area, tickets to a Thunder game, and every single other thing I can think of between now and then! I know it's extravagant and probably ridiculous but I'm excited about it!

I dislike Christmas time and I really dislike New York winters.

That's exciting! I never get to go overboard for Christmas, being a single mom on $8.50/hr pay lol but maybe that will change soon :)

I used to when I was a kid. Now as an adult, it's just awful.

Lol, I had to go back and remember how you could know where I lived. The Thunder tickets, of course!
