December 17 – National Re-Gifting Day!
At first I was nervous that I wouldn’t have anything to re-gift…as I said yesterday I love purging and don’t keep much extra stuff around…I am sure when I have a garage, basement, or storage area of some sort that will change a little. I was looking at our book shelf and I saw a couple hiking books that Jared and I have used maybe one time. PERFECT…I happen to know a lot of people who like to go hiking. There are LOTS of beautiful hikes out here, however, I have done very few of them.
I grabbed the books and the Albertson’s add from the paper (Albertson’s is a grocery store out here) and wrapped them up. Nothing like re-gifting in re-used wrappings! Again, I called my friend Erica…the one who let me herd her cats…and again asked if I could come over for a quick visit tonight. I can only imagine what she was thinking – what animal am I going to torment tonight, or crazy thing am I going to make her do – however, being the great friend that she is again she said she would be there.
Now that I think about this…possibly you should have known that this day was coming before you celebrated yesterday too much. Take those old annoying toys and pass them on to another unsuspecting parent! I have vowed not to get my nephew any annoying toys for fear of retaliation from my sister and brother-in-law when we have kids of our own.
