What happens when you take 15 people, scattered around the 2nd largest state in America and throw them together for holidays? Madness, that’s what it is.
This year the down economy has given us all a reason to bring a spirit of parsimony to the annual Hayley Holiday Get-Together in late December.
The adults have drawn names for our Christmas gift exchange. All children – young adults – under age 18 will receive a stocking-stuffer gift. Over 18s are deemed an adult and are in the drawing.
What a relief this is in a crazy year that not requires watching the budget but also a year where I’ve done absolutely no advance gift shopping. Maybe I will survive the holiday shopping (c)rush after all!
