Well, the holiday season is quickly approaching. One of the Santa Claus parades was last week. There’s another one this weekend. The kids have their lists ready to hand off to Santa’s letter carriers. I hear Christmas music being pumped through the mall now. Yup. It’s just around the corner.
And surprisingly, I’ve been able to cross a few people off my list already! This is unheard of! I’m one of those last minute shoppers who tries to run into the store a week before Christmas and grab anything that hasn’t been mauled by 200 people already. “Good enough!” is my usual motto.
But not this year.
This year is different. This year I’ve put some thought into the gifts that I want to give. Oh sure, there might still be some last minute purchases. I’d love to say that I’m going to have EVERYTHING bought and wrapped early, but I know that something will slip through the cracks. It’s Stephen-nature.
I’ve got a couple of surprises this year,though. I’m actually pretty excited about giving some of these gifts. Hopefully, they will be well received.
Or next year it’s McDonalds gift certificates for everyone!
