How do you plan to spend this year compared to last year?
With bonus checks being moved to Jan, raise request being denied and my wife not getting any sub calls... I'm afraid it will be less this year.
It's not that bad though. We really have everything we 'need' and more than a few of our wants are covered too. It just makes me sad that I can't give like we've been able to in the past.
completely understand you there, but honestly Id be happier waking up with my wife and child on Christmas morning and spending the day with each other watching Christmas shows on tv Christmas to me sees to have turned into what can I do better this year then the year before, i think its kinda lost its meaning over the years,to me it seems its more about receiving then giving, id rather go out and give something to someone else who REALLY needs something then to get something i would like... just my opinion tho
