Every year I make presents for people. I love it and even though it can cost just as much as store bought, it's just something I do.
Does anyone else make presents for Christmas? I'd love to hear about them. And post pictures if you can! And links to directions!! Thanks.
Also any special holiday foods that you make. Or decorations.
I am traveling to South Africa next summer with ISV (International Student Volunteers), and am looking for any little part time jobs to help me pay for it. In total, the program will cost close to $4,000. I am a student at Utah Valley University, and any money I make will go directly to ISV. Some of my services include dog walking, pet/house sitting, babysitting, cleaning, and are not limited to anything else you can think of. I have two years of experience as a Veterinary Assistant, six years of horse ownership experience, and love kids! If you are anyone you know could help me, I would really appreciate it!
My wife and I thought it would be fun to have a fun Christmas splore. Check in each day until Christmas for a new riddle, joke or puzzle. Add your own jokes or riddles--other seasonal holidays fine. (If you can find a good kwanzaa one, go for it.) Keep it clean. The submitted riddle or joke with the most "likes" wins a giant Hershey Bar. If you are a kid, have your mom or dad submit it for you. And tell them you get the candy bar.
No rules, just send your jokes in and hope people like them. Note: the like buttons only work after you officially join the splore. Obviously I can't win, but you can still "like" the daily riddle.
Post the answers to the riddles if you know them--just make it clear which one you are answering. Oh, and the person who gets the most answers right gets a big candy bar, too. Why not? You can be really smart or just google them or ask a kid. Merry Christmas! (P.S. If you post a Star Wars--Christmas joke or puzzler, I'll click "like" for your post myself. My wife may not.)
What can you do to keep track of everything that needs to be done and to have the most meaningful and joyful Christmas holiday? Buy gifts. Decorate the house. Pick up relatives from the airport. Prepare food. Send out Christmas cards. Forgetting one thing can cause hurt feelings, create chaos or ruin plans. How can you possibly keep track of everything that needs to be done. What works best for you?
Anyone else out there rather get a root canal than have to choose gifts for all your family and friends every year? I'm looking for creative ideas about gifts for everyone - kids, spouses, parents, friends. Any tips or tricks - places you shop, gifts that never fail, etc.?
