Beth at Blue Star Chronicles tagged me for this “Christmas Tag” meme. Here are the official rules:
Ok this is how it works. The player (me) must list 3 things that I would love to get for Christmas. Then I must list 3 things that I definitely do not want to get for Christmas. Then I tag 5 friends and list their names. The one I tag needs to write on their blogs about their Christmas wishes then tag 5 more people. They must also clarify all the rules. When you tag someone you need to leave a comment that says â€œyouâ€™ve been Christmas tagged!â€ in their comments and tell them to read your blog. Ok everybody.
I made a decision months ago that when people tag me for memes, I will almost always do the meme, but I won’t tag other people. Others who read this are welcome to write their own “Christmas Tag” post, but I’m not going to tag anyone.
With that said, and with the caveat that of course I wish for world peace, the brotherhood and sisterhood of all humanity, an end to hunger and abuse, no problems for anybody anytime, and lots of love and joy for everyone - those above any of my wishes for myself personally, I will keep my wishes smaller and within the realm of my own life. So here are my 3 wishes:
1. Personally, I love jewelry - rings, pendants, earrings. The sparklier the better. A unique necklace/pendant would be great since I wear a necklace almost every day - and I alternate between a gold cross pendant and a “C” pendant. Let’s see, one with lots of diamonds would be nice.
2. I want the building of RT’s and my new house will go smoothly and QUICKLY. We have a house-warming party scheduled for July 12th. I hope everything goes so well that we can be well settled into the house in time for that party.
3. Gift certificates to Barnes and Noble. I spend an obscene amount of money on books every year. I buy children’s books compulsively. However, I USE all the books I buy. I read to children as part of my job, and I love children’s books. Still, I spend too much money on them.
Then the three things I definitely do NOT want for Christmas.
1. Clothes of any kind.
2. Any “stuff” - Despite getting rid of carloads of stuff when I moved last summer, RT and I are still drowning in stuff.
3. A pet of any kind.
Now then, if you would like to write about the three things you DO and DON’T want for Christmas, be my guest! It’s actually rather fun!
As an ending, I will share a quote my friend, Patti, just sent me:
Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.
