shopping

so, i started christmas shopping last month. we have a company that we use for payroll at work that let us set up a holiday fund where they automatically take a pre-set amount of each of our paychecks (the amount we pick ourselves) out each pay period and put it into a holding account for holiday spending, and then on october 15 they cut you a check for the amount you saved that year(it doesnt earn interest, but its better than having to charge a bunch of gifts). anyway, i started to buy gifts for the people on my list and have about half of my shopping done. its nice to be so far along in the process, but now the people i have left to buy for are people that i am not sure what to get them. ive never been a fan of christmas lists because i feel like if i am buying someone a gift i should know them well enough to buy something i know they would like. but, at the same time, it does make it easier, especially for the hard-to-buy-for folks, so i suppose i just have to live with it.

I hear ya, there are some people that are just plain difficult to buy for. Take a brother in law for example... they are impossible.

aint that the truth, although not as hard as father-in-laws can be.
