    Hubby just called 4:45 p.m. December 23. "I'm going to be a little bit late because I have to get your Christmas present. Everybody is sold out of what you want but I will find something."

    Now, it's the thought that counts, but how much thought is there in this?

    Whatever, I still love him. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    At least you're getting a gift. Some folks are getting nothing. I hope you like what he gets you.

    a month before hand I tell mine how much he can spend, give him a nice list to choose from. I was a bit late this year and he came to me asking for his budget and list before my mother finds out he hasn't shopped yet. poor man

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    After we had our child we quit buying each other gifts, but he always asks just to be sure there isn't something special I do want. He's about the best gift I could want.

    My mom still makes her grown kids stockings...pens, small notebook pad, chip clips or those magnet ones, some loose candy or can of nuts, and a silly pair of socks and an ornament. She sounded like she was tired of it now. <38 yr old gonna be sad if I don't get a stocking this year. [​IMG]

    Last Christmas I asked for a pantry in my kitchen (he is a carpenter). Well, it's almost finished. He did put doors on over the Thanksgiving weekend (still has to sand and stain and put handles on). Year before he didn't get me anything. My birthday is 5 days after Christmas, and has been the same day ever since he has known me, but he forgot it last year.

    Anyway, I still love him and I will love whatever he gets me, just like the year he got me a beautiful red sweater that was several sizes too small. I thanked him kindly and figured that I am skinny in his mind's eye.

    Okay, enough ranting for me - Merry Christmas everyone!
