christmas gift ideas....

PostBy: titleist1 On: Mon Nov 26, 2012 12:32 pm

without going into details, lets just say the weekend around here wasn't one of the best examples to send in to the mensa group for membership, so my current idea for my spousal christmas gift is a pair of gloves that have the rubber dimples on the palm for extra gripping capability. that way her hands wont slip off her ears as she is attempting to pull her head outta her netherregions. of course they would be lovingly packaged with instructions in seasonal gift wrap complete with a sparkly bow. i am open to other ideas, though.

the stoker is smoothly keeping us all warm though no matter how much sabotage is going on here to try to thwart its efforts! :mad: maybe this post should go in the "venting" section since that is all i am doing. :roll:

The one year when I was with the old GF we we were doing the family thing opening presents at my house. She opened it up and it was a box of tools... LOL She knew what was going on because we had this little thing we did ourselves for Christmas but my soon to be sister-in-law didn't. "Tools?"....she says. LOL The GF starts playing along like she's ecstatic because she needed them which she did because every time I had to fix something at her house I either couldn't or had to bring tools.

I have always had a hard time buying the women in my life, decent presents, until I got the wife I have now. We are petty compatible which is more then I can say for a few others.

Last year she saw a cute little outfit she liked, so for on Valentines Day I went to buy it for her, but they did not have it in her size. They had a similar miniskirt in her size though. Not sure what to do, I bought them both, but since one was red, and one was black and red...well it meant getting a pair of red heels and a pair of black heels do everything matched. She later said any husband smart enough to get her both outfits and two pairs of shoes, was a keeper. :D

I guess this applies to any woman, but my wife really loves her shoes. She belongs to three shoe-of-the-month clubs! She does not always get a pair every month, but she has plenty of them and always wants more. It is always a safe bet to buy shoes for her. And yes they are mostly high heels. Her ex-husband was short and forbid her to wear any shoes that made her taller than he was, so now that she is with a taller husband, pregnant or not, she cannot wear high heels enough. I'm not complaining.

A blender? Nothing says Merry Christmas and I love you more than, 'get back in the kitchen,'

I'm kidding of course.

Seriously, what's your wife into?

My wife is so difficult to buy for. She'll tell me what to get her so when I go and get it and give it to her she turns around and returns it anyway. Then when I get pissed and start yelling about it she goes, 'Well, we need the money more than I needed the gift.' So, I usually just throw my hands up and say, 'I give up.' We usually don't give each other gifts for this very reason. We just concentrate on the kids.

sorry, but at the advice of my team of therapist's this episode has been purged from my consciousness. it can only be brought back via deep hypnosis and there are no guarantees that the resulting side effects of re-living it will not cause permanent damage so i am not going to try it. :crazy:

the stress relief was supplied by hand splitting four pick up loads of firewood from a couple oak trees that came down during the hurricane. usually i just tell the guy to come get it after i cut it to length with the chainsaw, but this time i dug out the splitting maul and went at it for three days. my payback will be the use of his dump trailer for a run to the coal supplier.

I like the story Walter Williams told. He got her a pair of golf shoes with cleats on the bottom.
She does not play golf but he noticed she was slipping on the ice when she washed his car in the winter.
