Everyday Living, Where My Money Goes

A Holiday Recap

$18 and some change for a Hillary Clinton nutcracker for my very liberal uncle …

$20 for a random gift for my ex-sister-in-law (she does a good job raising my nephew J and deserves sainthood more than the random stuff I got her) …

$12 spent on Bob Dylan’s autobiography for my dad who brought me to a Dylan concert in November …

Singing Radiohead’s “Creep” and having my nephew J marvel at my mad skills on Rock Band II with J on drums and Future Husband on guitar? And beating FH in Texas Hold ‘Em with a pair of aces with king high to his pair and seven? Priceless …

As always – the food and fellowship trumped the gifts actually received for Christmas this year. But man, this was a good Christmas. FH and I got to hang out with my nephew J for a long period of time – this is something special for both of us considering that he is my brother’s son from his first marriage and I see him sporadically at best.

I ended up spending more money than I had budgeted for the holiday, but I was very happy with the gifts that I gave to my nephews and family. FH and I got some very nice presents as well, but nothing is better than just hanging out with my individual family members and building up those memories for the future.

  1. I love how the game ‘rock band’ seems to bridge generational gaps and bring families so close. 🙂 I love playing it at holidays too.
