The holidays are upon us once again. Oy Vey!
There was a time I was totally on top of all this stuff. I had birthday gifts all purchased well in advance. I have a lot of birthdays to pay attention to.
January – Brother in Law, Nephew 3
February – Totally clear for me (we don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day)
March – Brother in Law and me
April – Brother and Nephew 1
May – Sister
June – Nephew 2
July – Husband and Mother in Law
August – Sister and Mother
September – Sister and Father in Law
October – Also randomly clear
November – Daughter, Anniversary
December – Father, Brother in Law and Christmas
I used to have Christmas gifts bought and wrapped by August. I’d have last minute purchases sure, of things that went on sale or I thought so and so would just love to have. But if I didn’t make these purchases, everyone would still have a major item wrapped from me.
Somewhere along the line this all broke. I am only now starting to admit to myself that I might be a scrambling last minute shopper. 😦
Birthdays I was still pretty good about until all the life changes started happening at once and I completely fell off the wagon. I think I’m caught up at this point, but there may still be someone I missed (holla at me if you want a gift yo!).
And now the holidays are upon us. I have purchased exactly 3 things. I’m behind.
