Don’t Enter the Dog House this Holiday!
December 23, 2010
So I got a few last-minute Christmas gifts today. Why? It was my husband’s request. And I have to say it felt pretty good, you know? No frenzy. No worries. It was like this part of the gift hunting was gravy, like the cherry on top. There’s something to be said for holding off until the idea strikes you (of course, I’m not talking about procrastination here ~ just an ease and grace that comes with taking it slowly!).
But first, consider my conversation with my husband this morning.
(background sound ~ *Chuscha chuscha* the scrubbing of a broom. Husband is washing the tiled hallway on the top floor for the first time in two years.)
Husband: Are you going to Expert (think Circuit City) today?
Me: (considerable pause b/c I was actually headed to the gym) No.
Husband: Oh, because if you were…
Me: What do you need?
Sound abruptly stops.
Husband: That sports video game for the Xbox I bought…for our son.
Me: Okay. I’ll get it. But this year there’d better be a reaaaaaally good gift for me waiting under that Christmas tree.

Guess who’s watching it next? Woof!
