I haven't been able to do any shopping yet as we have run out of money a
few days before the last 3 paydays. Car repairs, car registration, medical
bills, and a lot of other things have to be taken care of before gifts can be
purchased. We have 25 grandkids that we want to get a little something for. Most
years it's a dollar store gift. I haven't been able to do that so far
this year. We had to replace our washer this summer. It's just been a tough
year for us. And I know we are not alone in the difficult financial situation.
Self preservation is the most important thing in life. Faced with the fact of
the matter, necessity is the mother of invention.
