What are you getting your loved ones for Christmas?
In my case it’s the kids. They know who the real Santa C is and have presented me with lists accordingly. It’s not so much that I mind that they know or anything like that (cuz the oldest is a real pill to buy for), it’s just that I absolutely can’t stand the thought of spending the money for a Nintendo DS only to have the oldest lose it or break it-like they BOTH did the last time I bought them gameboys.
I guess my point is it absolutely FRIES MY ASS to spend money on :hushup: they don’t take care of, so as much as I hate to disappoint them, I’m just not so inclined to give them what they want. And EVERYTHING they want is video game oriented. I don’t mind buying them new games for the Playstation and even getting them the nicer controllers they want but I just keep thinking what a freaking hastle it was last time we did gameboys–lets talk stealing mommy’s batteries (never mind that I bought them chargers they STILL stole my batteries-or each others- which was a constant headache).
On the flip side, they’re getting a computer (wait–it’s FREE–an 18 MO old Dell from a friend) and I think I’m gonna do wireless internet which means I have to invest in software to kidproof the computer (IN the living room) and a router. This will get them OFF my laptop which irritates me to no end.
So again, what are you getting your loved ones? :dead:
