    Greetings ForumWheelers, hope all is well with everybody:). Hope everybody had a Merry Christmas:).

    Care to share what presents you gave and/or received for Christmas? Did you get/give something really fabulous?
    Anybody planning on returning anything?

    I had a pretty modest reunion. Other than the date it happened it wasn't very Christmasy.
    I did not give any gifts. I received a pin and some cards which are way more than what I was expecting to get at all, haha.
    I watched 'Gremlins' with a friend, who insisted that was a valid Xmas movie suggestion. :D

    I love that you watched Gremlins:D! I haven't seen that movie in ages.
    You didn't even expect a pin and some cards? My, my... someone must have been naughty this year;) (jk).

    My Christmas was very relaxed and laid-back, just like how I like certain things. I loved it:cool:.

    Tuesday

    Well, things to be 'under construction' here at the Forum Wheel, but 'no-matter'. I've been away due to computer issues and I feel like typing, so I'll type to myself.:D
    It's kind of like in real-life, when everyone around me is otherwise engaged, so I talk to myselfo_O:rolleyes::):):D, lol:).
    Talking to myself, typing to myself-- same thing, different format:).

    On December 25th exactly, I didn't get any presents, however, I did get presents a couple of days prior to December 25. I got some perfume:D, a few candles:), and a couple of other things too. I really like getting and giving gifts.

    I think that I really need to get serious about my gift-giving for 2017 and start shopping and preparing much earlier. Seems like every year the holidays kind of sneak up on me. And how is that possible, for something to sneak up on you that comes at the exact same time every yearo_O??

    I love the holidays so I like to do things up big and lovely, but for some reason I always seem to get a late start at things:oops:.
    Perhaps I need to drink more coffee, help my get-up-and-go a bit. Speaking of coffee, I should drink some right now! I love that idea.
    Right now, right now-- though, I'm gonna mosey on over to my New Years Eve threads and write over there as well:D. I adore this forum!!

    Don't worry, I've done my fair share of talking to myself in forums and real life too, hahaha.
    Around January is the best time to get the Christmas decorations and stuff, I think. As for preparing the gifts, I am terrible when it comes to hiding them for months but I find that easier than trying to get everything in December. Sometimes you are walking out and you just see something perfect for the other person. I rather just to give them as I find them so I might find myself in December empty handed, haha.

    I hadn't noticed your reply before, that sure got me laughing.

    I love talking to myself, it thrills me, lol:D.
    I have some really great conversations with myself:):D, but I'm sure you know all about that because
    you said that you've done your fair share of talking to yourself too:cool:.

    I really didn't think about whether January is the best time to get Christmas decorations, but now that you mention it,
    I can totally see how that is the case. January is right after December, and a lot of the items that didn't sell in December
    are on display for the January sales. I get it. I don't think I've ever really given that subject much thought before.

    Regardless of any January sales though, right now is not the best time for me to engage in any shopping activities because I'm having
    some financial challenges: my car needs to be fixed, and my laptop is in the shop again (so I'm using my son's laptop whenever I can).
    Any type of "extra" shopping has to be put on hold...

    Well, it should be put on hold, but sometimes I'm not as disciplined as I should be when it comes to holding off on the shopping. I'm telling you the truth when I say that sometimes an item literally talks to you when you are in a store.

    You're walking by, minding your own business, and all of a sudden, you can almost hear a certain purse
    (or wallet, or value-sized bag of chocolate candy) say, "Buy me. Buy me this instant, I'm 40% off."o_O:rolleyes::):):)

    I don't know if I'm terrible at hiding gifts from someone for months and months until December comes around, but it sure would be nice to have the money to buy the gifts, buy them, and then see if I'm terrible at hiding the gifts, or not:).

    Come to think of it, I might not be too good at it because I remember some years back, I bought one of my Aunts something sweet to eat as her Christmas present.
    I wrapped it, put it under the Christmas tree, but then a few days later, I went under the tree, found her gift, unwrapped it
    and ate it myselfo_Oo_O:eek::oops::rolleyes:, and had nothing to give her when Christmas day came around.

    Hahahaha. That sweet things sound like something I'd do, except that I probably wouldn't even resist enough to wrap it.
    I understand about the extras being put aside to make room for what's urgent and what's important.
    My new year gift was to learn I was losing my job in less than two weeks, okay let's be fair, I learned that on the 28 of December but still, kind of hard to think about expenses when you have no stable income so most likely once the forum subscription is open I will try to make some cents from here. This is why you are finding me here more often nowadays. xD
