No gifts after 18?

Saturday, December 14, 2019

My younger son can come up with the silliest things. Earlier tonight He was able to order what he wanted for Christmas. It was about 4 or 5 items and although he thinks that is all he will get I do plan to get him a gift card to Game Stop which he'll love getting. So then a little after that, he came and seriously asked if he'll get any Christmas presents after this year and did his brother? I told him that yes his brother got gifts last year and there isn't any cut off age for getting Christmas gifts. I guess he had been talking to his friend after he got to order some gifts and told him that this would be the last year he'd get gifts. His friend must have thought he had a real Grinch for a mother.
I did go to water fit today. I didn't tell you all about one thing that happened last Tuesday. We were having class as usual and this one lady who is someone that I usually visit with before class starts wears a baseball hat. I didn't know why but what does it matter. So in the middle of class the teacher says that you shouldn't wear a hat because it holds the heat in or something like that. There was only one person wearing a hat. We talked later and she said she was surprised and I found out that she does it because the sun gives her a headache. I had wondered about wearing one to see if it kept water off my glasses better but had decided that it might make it harder to see the instructor. Next Tuesday there will be at least two of us wearing a hat. I think the teacher should have talked to her one on one and not in front of the whole class and then she could have found out why she was wearing the hat.
It is almost bedtime so goodnight all and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    It was our children who determined that they really have no need of gifts. They buy what they want for each other and call it gift giving. My husband and I bought ourselves a new couch and chair this year. It will be delivered just before Christmas. We're all fine with that.

    Hmmm . . . yes, you have to wonder where kids get some of their ideas. My kids are 24 and 27 and I still give them gift cards.

    As for the hat, yes, if the instructor had a problem w/that, it should have been addressed more personally! Sheesh.

    There's strength in numbers. It's good that you stand with your friend. I wear a cap/hat in the summer when I mow to keep my head from getting sunburned. I've never had a problem with it holding the heat in...just sayin' Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

    How sweet that your son thought he wouldn't get gifts. I would be wearing a hat as well.

    I would wear a hat as well. Don't like what that teacher did either. You are right--what does it really matter?
