This time of the year I have so much anxiety. I can\'t wait for December 26th to get here. It seems like Christmas has to be all about buying gifts...show how much you love your children by how much you spend on them...bahh humbug. My 10 year old thinks its cheap to spend $260 on a Wii game system. My older 2 kids, 20 and 18 both wanted lap top computers for Christmas. Needless to say I did not buy the lap top computers or the Wii. The older I get, the less money I want to spend. It seems ridiculous to overspend for one day out of the year and suffer for month\'s after Christmas is over for lack of money. I wish everyone in my family would decide NOT to buy each other any gifts and just make a handmade card or something simple like that. Then I would really enjoy Christmas and look forward to it.
