Eeeekk….It’s a little more than a week until Christmas and I only have a few presents wrapped. I do not enjoy wrapping presents at all. I’m hoping since the hubby is done with classes until January, that I can get him to help me later on. I still have a little Christmas shopping to do too. I am going to try to get that done today. I know that the closer it gets to Christmas, the crazier the stores get LOL.
Rhiannon has Christmas dance programs this week, but I won’t get to attend them. It’s not because I don’t want to. it’s because the dance instructor chose to have them at a nursing home and a residential center so there’s no room for the parents. Rhiannon took dance when she was younger and they had an actual Christmas recital a local auditorium. I’m a little annoyed because I pay decent money for tuition and costumes and yet I can’t see her in her Christmas program. Oh, but I could buy a DVD of the performances for $5. It’s still not as good as being there in person. I’m sure I’m not the only parent who is aggravated by that. But oh well, what can ya do?
I’ve learned that complaining to people about things they do doesn’t solve anything. I guess that’s why I’ve gotten to where I’m so passive aggressive..yep, I admit to it. I wasn’t always that way but sometimes it seems like that’s the only way some people will get the point. Like, for instance, if someone owes me money, I might “like” a page with an article about that particular subject and hope that they see it in their feed LOL. Other times I’ve tried to collect money that someone owed me, they acted like I was crazy for even asking for it. And no, this was not a case of them borrowing money, but rather me working for them. I guess it’s crazy for me to want to get paid for working. I don’t feel like I should have to ask for money owed to me though. I mean, people know when they owe you money. If anyone has any suggestions how to get people to pay me without being all passive aggressive and without being a jerk, I’d love to hear them :).
