Final Gift Count

Christmas came early for me. Like PIGS says, "I was a kid in a candy shop."

$40 in Star Bucks gift cards. I have already arranged to trade out for other gift cards since I don't do coffee.

$30 in Sonic gift cards. I even got $10 from a student I am always redirecting and I was totally suprised to get something from him.

$20 to a local Saltgrass Steak company along with a cheese/salami/cracker set from one student.

2 wallets. Looks like my brother will get a brown leather trifold this year.

2 boxes of chocolates. Not sure on this??? Take some to the movies tonight?

$15 movie gift cards. YES!

About a dozen "what am I going to do with this" type of gifts. I may regift some and hold on to the others for a future yard sale.

Speaking of yards, I moved mine today. Yes, I mowed in December. It was near 60 and real nice. I wanted to clean it up and chop up the few leaves in the yard. Had to borrow my neighbor's mower because mine won't stay running.

Be careful out there.

wOw!!!! It appears that you are a very popular guy. Or maybe spoiled. :) It sounds like most of your students/friends know what you like. I don't understand the ??? behind the box of chocolates. Come on Forrest... :) Hope you guys have some happy holidays.

You MOWED YOUR LAWN! Ugh. I'm so jealous.

I mowed my driveway today...with a snow blower. ;)

You did make out with some EXCELLENT gifts. Score for you!

You can thank me later for telling all those parents that you wanted gift cards from restaurants. They gave me...Stuff. Not sure how to describe some of it. I got ANOTHER frock!

Reply to wiccachicky: My parents still go crazy. I get about $50 from each of them. My wife gets the same amount. Guess I'll do the same for my kids when I get to 60.

Reply to random: Who do you give chocolates to? The first box I opened was, take a bite, throw away. Take a bite, throw away. Nasty flavors.

Be in STL 25th-2nd.

Reply to hOkie: If it were to snow I'd be out there doing that too. I did clean the windows in the house. It looked great until the sunshine exposed many streaks.

Reply to PIGS: Thanks. I hope you benefit some from my gift cards. I'll track down the Mama Emelia's gift cards so we can double up with our spouses soon.
