(Full disclaimer, I actually started today by letting the kids pop in a movie and then cuddling back up to my husband, who is only off today before working the rest of this long weekend. So that was more in the thankful mode.)
I've said for several years now, I don't really need more STUFF, and most of the stuff I do need is too expensive to ask others to buy for me, like a new roof, or a 4-door car for our family of four. So this is what I came up with:
After much thought, I added a few more items to the list.
- suet (I love watching the bird feeder outside our kitchen window)
- a date night
- a family trip to the mountain this winter
My sisters will find something sweet and personal and possibly useless but nevertheless appreciated. It's the in-laws who literally ask for a list.
I don't think I can give this list to them.
