|the high school sweethearts..... and now the old married couple|
Today is my 33rd wedding anniversary. Dang....33 years is a long time! I married my high school sweetheart right out of high school, and have been blessed with a loyal and loving husband. Granted, back then we both thought we knew it ALL, and that this whole marriage thing would be a piece of cake......little did we know! I think any marriage is a work in progress, and that growth in the relationship is constantly taking place. If not, the bond between both individuals would grow lax and eventually shrivel up and blow away.
There is not going to be an "Day After Christmas" shopping today. There is really nothing I need to get, so I am going to stay out of the stores. In order to get ready for next year's Christmas, I will be starting my $500 Holiday Challenge again. By trying to stick to this $500 budget for Christmas and track my purchases all year long, I was able to accomplish most of my shopping before December arrived. The list of purchases also help me to keep track of what I did buy and what I still needed. I used Swagbucks to acquire Amazon Gift Cards for Christmas, but what I did NOT know is that you cannot purchase gift cards (which was part of my gift giving for Christmas) with a gift card! I will have to plan better next year.
Time to get busy and get ready for another great day.
