Can’t Wait Till Christmas

Crossing away each box on my table calendar. Looking forward to reach the box with number 19 in the month of December. Yup, that should be my last day of work before I go off on Christmas holiday (that is if my boss approve my leave. *finger crossed*). 

I am so excited that it’s November now. And that gives me a good reason to shop and spend.

HE: Why are you buying this, Darling?
ME: Oh, for the kids’ Christmas present!
HE: *Nod his head indicate can buy*

So now you get what I meant by good reason to shop and spend? I have a collection of stuff which I bought over the time whenever I spotted a good bargain and nice stuff. So when it comes to someone’s birthday or Christmas, I don’t have to shop at the last minute. I rummaged through my collection yesterday and fulfilled almost 60% of my gift list. Leaving the remaining 40% as a reason to shop. Hehe…

My Christmas gift list is getting longer each year as we have new addition in the family each year. Gifts for my Darling, Jonathan boy, my parents, 5 sisters, 7 BIL, 8 nieces, 3 nephews, MIL, 2 SIL, 1 SIL-to-be. One family needs to buy for almost 20 person and so I have 6 of us (my sisters & me) in the family, that makes 20 x 6 = 120 gifts. The foot of the Christmas tree will always overflow with lots of presents and some hanging on the tree.

That was our 7 feet Christmas tree last year. 

That reminds me that I need to shop for a Christmas tree this year as I gave away my Christmas tree to my sis. I’m looking for a much bushier tree. I know there are names to different kinds of trees. I’m also thinking of a fiber optic tree. Any recommendation?
