I am not the most organized person in the world. I fully acknowledge and accept that about myself. I know I leave a lot to be desired in that area. Well, for once I'm ahead of the game. When it comes to friends and family I have planned ahead for Christmas. Yeah!!!! I have bought the items I needed to make some thoughtful homemade gifts this year. I knew I wouldn't have a lot of money so I actually planned ahead. I know, get a cold face cloth and place it on your forehead, it's appropriate here.
Have we gotten over the shock? I sure hope so, because although I didn't spend hundreds of dollars on these presents, I spent enough. (most of it was on homemade vanilla extract- I didn't do my research and who knew that vanilla beans cost so much? I know my friend warned me, but really, I didn't think they were that expensive)
Now my mother sends out an e-mail to me, my brother , and my sister-in-law ( remember they were married? See the post about being violated) In this e-mail she reminds us that no one has much money this year so we are all challenged to buy each other gifts without going over $5 each. WHAT??? $5 each? I've already invested more into these presents. I have a whole gift basket for everyone!!! What the hell do I do now? This bloody vanilla has cost me more than the $20 I'm allowed for both parents and brother and sister-in-law!
Anyone looking for a gift basket for Christmas? Apparently I'll be selling them or giving them to friends, or just using it myself. That's why I'm not organized. This is where it gets me. Well screw you, I'm going home. Wait, I'm already there--oh crap..................and why is my house such a mess? Where's the maid?
