I enjoyed Christmas this year. I think my family has finally learned to let me do my thing. I actually got some good stuff too. I did get a schlocky gift and some worthless gifts but overall the getting was good. On the giving side, I stick with giving one big item rather than lots of smaller items. This worked out nicely too. One of my nieces loved the Furby I got her. The middle child wanted to break into the donuts that I got her (along with a toy and some dvds). The youngest had not clue what the hell was going on. She sat on the Lego music maker more than she played with it. Go figure.
I also gave the oldest niece a facewash. She can be an annoying brat at times and doesn't care to listen when you tell her to stop it. She was warned by me. Then by her father. In the end I dragged her outside and administered a good face washing. She learned her lesson. For at least a couple of hours.
I was a bit disturbed by one of the gifts she got as well. A big lipstick tube and held something inside. No clue what it was suppose to be but it looked like a big dildo that she was carrying around. Not quite the gift I would buy her but my brother's wife was clueless.
I looked at the stuff I got this morning and thought of what I will do with some of them. I won't use them. And I don't do returns. Not worth my time to go through that hassel unless it is something I truly like and just need something differen like a size. So who wants to trade me for a heated travel mug?
Finally, I could help but notice all of the post Christmas clearance sales. Why don't liquor stores have these? That is the one sale I would get up for the early bird sale.
