I am falling behind on my blogging. Customers have increased my work load the past couple weeks. It means more money but it means less time to do what I love doing, which is blogging and writing articles for HubPages.
As always, I’m just grateful to have my necessities taken care of. Living Simple….need vs want!
Bev and I were talking about Christmas gifts last night. We are doing, as a family, the envelope gift. We write on an envelope what we want, and then put the envelope under the tree. During the holiday season family members then put money in the envelope. That way we can buy what we really need/want, and we don’t have to throw away those gifts that we wouldn’t be caught dead with. J
Bev and I want/need a chainsaw, so that’s what our envelope will say. Bev and I also agreed to buy each other one gift with a dollar limit of $50.
And that is the end of my Christmas shopping for 2012. I figure the holiday gift shopping will cost me $100 this year.
We could spend more, but what would be the point? We love each other; our family is on board regarding not spending too much money; so why would we spend if there is no reason to do so?
Now I need to find the Christmas decorations up in the attic. It’s my job because I’m the only one in the family that does not have problems with asthma, and that attic is one dusty place. Sigh! I’m being punished for being healthy! LOL
