|Are you full of holiday spirit?|
Substantial Holiday Understanding
You’re a bit of a Holiday Martyr, you enjoy the season mostly because of other people’s happiness and involvement in it. You’re usually willing to forego your own needs in favor of creating good memories for other poeple, and see the holiday season as a time brimming with oppurtunities to do good for others. While you don’t have alot of cheer, you certainly have a great way of looking at the holidays.

This has been a really good year, I’m blessed and I really wanted to give the kids an extra special Christmas (unlike them I remember the Christmas we got a tree out of the dumpster and the Christmases I had no money for presents). So much so I went out and even ebayed my way into a Nintendo Wii. It’s all #1 son asked for. He said if he got that he didn’t want anything else.
On Saturday he asked me if he could do something to earn money for Christmas presents. I told him to rake the front yard and bag the leaves. Five minutes later he comes inside complaining that it was too hard. Granted the grass under the leaves needs to be cut but….Then, on Sunday I was doing the laundry and guess what I found in the dryer? The iPod I got #1 for his birthday. Washed, dried and fried 🙁 His birthday was in October which means it’s not even 3 months old yet.
Irate wouldn’t even cover how angry and upset I am. I’m so tempted to sell that Wii 🙁 🙁
And guess who’s in grounded and in charge of yard work for the next….well until I feel like he’s worked off his iPod.
