Bah Humbug!!

I don't know about you, but I have been hearing a lot of this lately. Yes, I am sure I am also guilty, inside at least! It has been a rough year for a lot of people, and I try to convince them and myself, it has to get better, it just can't get any worst! But still, folks are still feeling the pinch. At the Bump house, we had a meeting to discuss our situation, and came to the conclusion, that simple is best for us. We could really use with a lot less stuff and just enjoy being in each other's company. Our son wanted a fresh tree, so his present to us was a beautiful, fresh tree, and the best part, it was only $20. Our present to him, very practical items, undies, thermal tops, big bottles of shampoo and multi packs of deodorant, and a couple of other much needed and appreciated items of use. Hubby and I usually don't get each other presents, although, this year I bought him his fishing license, which is what he really wanted, and I know he got me something, but not sure of what it is. I did notice that my $4.00 coupon for a Brita Water pitcher is missing, so maybe that is what I am getting. We plan on spending the day together, although our original plans were to go on a nice, long bike ride, but due to the weather, I doubt we will be able to do that, so the back up plan is to watch all of the Indiana Jones movies, one after another until we complete the series. I look forward to this time together, for soon our 23 yr old son is moving out, and I know that I will miss him even more. What are your plans for Christmas day??


  1. Our family is doing the same - an it feels good!

  2. There will be some new slippers under the tree because that is something that we need and probably a couple of other things like socks and underwear too. We are trying to keep it simple- Kevin is away in Nova Scotia( he just texted to say that he has arrived safely). We will be with my parents and siblings on the weekend. Less is sometimes more...
    Have some wonderful family times together.

  3. Merry Christmas Pam and family. We are staying home since we did Christmas at Thanksgiving, but we're going out to eat. Yes you heard right no cooking for me. YA I'm looking forward to peace and quiet and no dirty dishes. Jackie
