Happy Fuckin’ Ho Ho, ‘Ho

Not to sound like a Grinch…but I dread Christmas shopping this year. Finding the perfect gift for someone is a task I do not like to half-ass. The joy of seeking & discovering something JUST RIGHT for a loved one is very satisfying, but the hunt is time-consuming and stressful. As some of you may know, I am home as a caregiver almost 24/7 with a child who is unwell, a child whom I wouldn’t dream of dragging with me to a packed mall. My free time is, at this point, limited to 4 am-7 am, or 4 am-9am on a work day…and the odd evening that I might slip out for an hour to remember who I was before Brain Goblins attacked my kid and changed our lives in ways we could not have expected.

I can barely juggle my day-to-day; I try, but the truth is, most days are an epic fail. How am I going to juggle the hurricane of holiday expectations? The shopping alone just boggles my brain. I cannot imagine how I might–? No. You know what? I give up *tired laugh* I can’t. I’m throwing in the towel. I’m waving the white flag. Done. Out. Nope. Can’t. Everyone’s getting the same thing.

Dear People on my Xmas List: I’m going to one store, and buying 55 of the exact same thing. If you’re lucky, the mood to Christmas shop won’t strike when I’m at the sex shop. “Yes, Virginia, I DO SO want 55 COCKASAURUS REX dildos. PUT THEM IN THE GODDAMN BAG AND TAKE MY CREDIT CARD.” 

Holiday problems: SOLVED.

Points scored: zero

Stress accumulated: minimal

Guilt: Fuck guilt. I’m letting myself off the hook this year.

How are you handling holiday crunch time?

    Sorry holidays are proving to be so stressful. Mine will be interesting due to budgeting. Shopping online maybe? They ship to your door. Best of luck.
