with the bah humbug attitude.
I perused a popular big box store Christmas toy catalog online and I CAN'T even imagine purchasing one
piece of crap Toy and bringing it into my home.
sure the kids probably want a toy or two but do they need one? NO!
Will they take care of it? NO!
beside the first day will they even play with it? NO!!!!!!!!
the thought is enough to make me consider converting to Jehovah's Witness.
(I go through this every year it's just earlier this year than USUAL)
I actually have an idea or two that are EXCELLENT gifts for the kids and yet not toys.
something fun, to get them playing outside and it's not something we currently have. PERFECTION!
another would be a FAMILY gift , that would be the gift that keeps on giving.
and one more would be a THEME gift. like everyone would get the same thing just their own.
plus some little crap. and the basic traditional items.
I'll admit I'm extra stoked about being in a new neighborhood and I can recycle one of my past neighbor gifts ideas. PURE AWESOME!
the Black Friday ads are rolling in which is what triggered this post tonight.
i'm all stoked about nothing.
honestly i'm not sure if i can even hack blackfriday this year.
Somehow i'm sure i'll find the energy (in a can) and pay for my adventure, days later with an achin' body, but I honestly don't think i can pass on the yearly delight.
I've gone days after giving birth. (I left my nursing newborn home)
I've gone 9 months pregnant.
I've gone with horrible morning sickness.
we have it down to a science.
favorite cousins come in from out of town.
friends have joined in on the fun.
I seriously don't think i can miss out on my FAVORITE DAY OF THE YEAR.
but i'll be honest, i have no idea what i'm going for yet.
i just might be going along only for the adventure of it. that would be fine too.
