I know in today's climate, Christmas presents are the last thing lots of people are thinking about. However, you can't help but wish to could get something for Christmas, even if it were just a gift card to a store. I already have my Christmas present. My husband started his new job last week. Now, I won't have to be scared of how we're going to survive. We can actually have a Christmas. We're actually talking about getting tickets to a circus for my daughter's 5th birthday. I think she'll enjoy it. We'll just have to wait for his first pay day til we buy tickets.

YAY! for your husband finding a job! It is so tough out there right now! I bet your daughter will absolutely love the circus! I hope you have fun too! My secret wish for gifts for Christmas are a hedge trimmer, an edger, and a weed wacker. How weird is that???? lol But I love to do yard work. I know I won't get any of these, due to financial hardship. But it's always nice to dream!

It's always nice to dream. That's the fun part. Hey, maybe things will change, or you can get one of those things you're wanting. you never know, Santa could have things hidden in the wings.

The only things I'd like are a new pair of dress shoes for work & a purse that fits my wallet better. Sadly being mostly a SAHM, I am the last one on the list and have accepted that. Even if it hurts sometimes.

Hey, as long as you have the money, you can treat yourself to a little bit of Christmas all year long. You don't have to make it work in Decemeber.

For Christmas I'm just asking my parents to pay off the interest on my school loans. Thankfully its not much at all since they are federal loans and it ends up being between $50-$100 a year considering each semester the amount goes up. Besides that they'll probably get me something related to school and then stock me up on food at the end of break before I head back.

That would definitely be a nice Christmas gift. I'd be happy if someone gave me the money to just pay my loans off. You get yourself caught up, and then turn around to find that you owe again. I hate student loans.
