I can't believe it's almost Christmas! My favorite time of year. I love decorating the house, making Christmas cookies, eating Christmas cookies, and even SHOPPING! It seems like yesterday I was putting away the winter clothes.
My husband recently asked me to make out a list for what I want for Christmas. Please! I have my list from last year and have been adding to it all year. Now I don't mean to sound selfish and spoiled. Mine is really a wish list! A mere guide for this wonderful man to use so he can get in and out of the stores quickly. See - very selfless of me!
I know our budget - I know I can't get everything. But if he's going to get me something - it might as well be something I want, right? I have been stockpiling catalogs from JCPenney all year for this moment!
Now I ask - "dear husband what do you want?" For all your hard work, for all the overtime you work and how much you take care of us - what is your desire for this Christmas?
He answers: "Nothing. We don't have the money. I don't need anything."
WHAT? This is the one time a year we can get something we actually WANT! All through the year we live within our means, are responsible parents - kids come first, then the house needs, then birthdays for the extended family. We never buy things for ourselves!
So what do I get the selfless man who won't give me a clue as to what he wants? Because he WILL be getting something! I have already been browsing the department store ads - visitng JCPenney to see the great sales! I'm starting now - so please - what can I get a 36 year old man who wants nothing just so we can give others everything?
