I’ve been impatiently waiting to blog about Scott’s Christmas gift for months now.
This present was the most stressful gift I’ve given him in the 7 years we’ve been together. Usually we don’t spend much on each other at all. Just buy thoughtful gifts year round and do the same during Christmas. It’s been difficult organizing this all on my own. Usually we go back and forth debating about dates, vacation time and everything else that goes with flight bookings, dog-sitting etc.
I don’t know where I had come up with the idea — in fact, it was supposed to be his Birthday gift but it wasn’t organized in time and I was so unsure, since I’ve never really been a huge organized planner. I wrapped the present in mid-December and asked him each day if he’d like to open it. I WAS DYING to see his reaction, I’m telling you!! Each day he asked me a series of questions. Some too good, that would give away the surprise, so I rigged my answers as carefully as possible, to throw him for a loop.
Finally, this morning he opened his light-weight, large, and ever so disguised Christmas present from me.
Still not home in Newfoundland yet. So expect more blog posts from me through the next few days. We ARE going home though. It just sucks because Scott is working every.single.day. Poor bugger. Well, poor me too – I’m alone during Christmas! HAHA. I do have the internet radio playing Christmas music, and Alfie’s here with me. So I’m not completely alone.
Happy Tibb’s Eve all yee Newf’s!
