Basically I would see my family after Christmas.
That made me feel like an asshole, so I planned, bought and packaged an advent calendar for my mom, my dad, my brother, my sister in law and all of their four boys.
I dropped it off at my parent's place two weeks ago.
I made a spreadsheet to keep track of, and organize this!
Then one of my coworkers got herself fired (Which is a whole pile of drama in itself, but meh, I'll try to keep my blog free of that) and I, and my remaining coworkers could make another Christmas plan.
So suddenly I will come for Christmas with my family along with hubby.
Which is of course good news, but it feels a little funny after compensating with the advent calendars for not being there!
The three big gifts are huge and heavy
Oh well. It will be fun!
Also, we have now fixed almost everything gift-related for our families: We sent the gifts to hubby's family the same day I went to my visit my parents. It feels surprisingly awesome to be done with something that is usually stressful and annoying.
Luckily the gifts we sent for hubby's family were a lot smaller and lighter
I do have a question for my readers though:
What would you give for Christmas gifts for four boys between the age of 13 and 20??
I have some very vague ideas of what games and brands that should be popular, but damn... I'll probably end up giving up and just giving them cash again, but that feels so sad! You might as well just print "I have no idea who you are as a person or what you like" on it.
