Today my goal is also to mail off some presents. I've just been picking up little things here and there thinking Oh, she'd love that! or That's perfect for him! and so on. Gifts are not over the top this year and I'm pretty much done with shopping. I might just pick up a few gift cards now and that will be that.
I'm also not making a Christmas list. With this remodel, there's not a whole lot of "stuff" that I need. Or want. I mean, I'll never turn down clothes or kitchen stuff, but we're worried about other things now when it comes fixtures/furnishings we could use for the house.
The only thing I want is this map, framed.
I'll probably do that over Christmas vacation. I've had my eye on it for months now. If that one, by chance, is gone when I get around to ordering, I'll find a different one on etsy. I just want a big colorful-ish map of the world on the wall.
We do need to get barstools, so we'll probably look for those over Christmas vacation too.
There's so little that we actually need, and so many better places to put our money, rather than filling up a tree skirt with stuff we don't actually require. We're much better off than most and this time of year, especially, makes me appreciative of that. The things we really want, like most people, can't be bought anyway, right?
