‘Tis the season to be jolly
Fa La La La La etc. etc.
Bah! Humbug. Even with ADHD?
The holiday season is very stressful for many if not most people (family? shopping?), but more so for us. We’re supposed to be happy, but if we’re not “jolly“, we may feel there’s something wrong with us. Well, there isn’t, not about that anyway. Blame it on the culture.
I have a bad track record on Christmas presents for my wife. I’ve usually been able to get her a really nice present, but often the timing is off. “You mean it’s two days before Christmas already?”
This time I had one of my best ideas ever. My wife is from Louisville, likes horses and the Derby. I found I could buy a micro share in a racehorse very cheap. But I needed to wait till Christmas morning so she could pick the horse. Unlike my usual foul up, I started this way early.
When I checked recently, suddenly they were sold out of horses and the prices had shot way up. Boogers.
Then fortunately I checked later and found a place that would work. But for my wife to own the (microshare) horse, I had to put it in her name, and they required all kinds of personal financial information. So I had to blow the secret and discuss it with her, and we decided it just wasn’t safe.
So I got a couple other presents, in time.Trying to find where I hid them is near the top of my to do list now.
- Shop early, real early. I use several calendars and my appointment book to try to stay located in time – know what I mean?
2. When you hide presents, make a note of where.
1. A big welcome to our new members.
2. Books make a wonderful Christmas or Hanukkah present, don’t they? Just saying.
3. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Great Kwanza, etc. to all the tribe.
