I don’t have a whole lot to say today. I spent last evening volunteering until very late and I discovered that my sales skills have failed me. At one point in my life, I was an excellent sales communicator. Last night, I didn’t even sell ONE raffle ticket. Personally, with the cost of the tickets, I had a very hard time justifying the “ask” but I still smiled, strolled and cajoled. All to no avail.
The point of that is to say that I’m tired and my brain is not all that fresh today. But, I still wanted to check in this morning and see how you guys are. I did buy something really cool for Ducks’ dad for Christmas, which made me wonder….
How many of you are already shopping for Christmas gifts? I have a few things stored away right now, because my sisters have all had their birthdays this past month, so I buy extra while I’m in birthday shopping mode to save for the holiday season. What about you? What’s your shopping strategy?
Also, now that we’re all adults, do you draw for names for the holidays? Our family is still fairly small; I’m the only one who is married, so we all still buy for each other. But after being named the official moderator of my friend’s holiday family name-drawing, I wonder at what point do people decide to do this? I can’t imagine not buying gifts for all my sisters, but maybe when they’re married and have husbands and kids, I might feel differently. What do you think?
