Wednesday Stuff

No Wednesday Worthy Hunk today.

What a week! So Monday was nonstop running trying to get shopping done. That came to an abrupt halt when I had a very minor fender bender in a parking lot. But everyone is fine, it’s really more of a hassle/inconvenience than anything big. By Monday night, I was so done all the Christmas stress and said, “Let’s go Toys for Tots shopping!”

Wizard was all over that. I love it, but he’s ridiculous! As soon as we got to the store, he’s like, “We need two baskets.”

I’m trying to keep a straight face with my accountant husband who has a strict budget for everything. “Two?”

He frowns. “Think we need three carts?”

I laughed. He wasn’t kidding which made it funnier. We settled on two carts and had a blast picking out toys. To his credit, he did keep a running total in his head (it’s his scary super power–he does math in his head).

Here’s our haul:


Toys for Tots 2015

It’s hard to see it all here, but this gives you an idea. We’ll take it all to the drop off center today. This is truly our Christmas Fun.

Hopefully I’ll get the rest of my shopping done soon!

How’s your week going?

    Cool. The kids are going to have big fun with all that stuff. Go you! And I’m glad you have fun while you’re doing it. You guys rock.

    Sorry about your fender bender. Those things suck. I’m glad no one was hurt. :hugs:

    Those are awesome presents! Y’all have way more fun than we do. I just write a check. ;)

    Ugh on the fender-bender. Hope it was the other person’s fault! I was out this morning and everywhere I went was a long trip between because of the accidents and I almost got hit twice. Gah! What is up with people?!?!?!

    But it’s Wednesday. I’ve made a slight dent in the shopping. I should think about addressing a few Christmas cards…Okay. I’ll think about that. ;)

    Here’s to a quiet rest of the week!

    B.E, it was is a highlight of the Christmas season for us, so I can’t take much credit :-)

    Thanks on the accident. Since it was minor and no one was hurt, I’m realizing I need to be grateful for that.

    Silver, writing a check is important and very giving! You help a lot of people that way. We all do our part :-)

    The accident wasn’t my fault, thankfully. But dang woman, that’s too many close calls for you! At least my accident was a parking lot one and unlikely to have hurt anyone.

    I feel for you on trying to get it all done. I finally made a big dent this morning so I’m nearly done shopping. Now it’s all the baking, wrapping and organizing. I think we’re all going nonstop!

    Hope Storm is feeling better now. And YOU don’t get sick!

    I am SO sorry to hear about your fender bender. Even little bumps are a pain to get repaired. You appear to have taken it all in stride.

    You and Wizard are making so very many children happy this year. What a great selection of gifts you two have chosen for the kids. You’re both really special people to give so much back. We do toys for tots but not this grand.

    Do you have all your shopping done now? I have to pick up some GC’s for the boys and will be done. Have to get my butt in gear and make fudge ;).

    Have a great evening :).

    Viki, thanks on the accident. I quickly realized that if this is the worst that happens, I’m lucky. Dealing with the insurance and repairs is a hassle but not a tragedy.

    Toys for Tots is something we enjoy, and I also think of those parents who want to give their kids a Christmas but circumstances prevent it. It truly makes Wizard and I happy so we can’t really take credit. It’s a joy to do it.

    We just finished shopping except for a couple gift cards Wizard will pick up. I have some baking to do for a weekend party, but that’s better than trying to figure out gifts :-) Good luck with your fudge!
