# christmas # devestation


Well, it's official. I'm out of options on how to get money for Christmas. My last attempt was to sell my dining room table set to my ex-husband. He's been using it since the divorce and I made him a reasonable offer. $150 for the table and all 6 chairs..except his fiancee said no. Now I don't know what I'm going to do. The boys gave me their lists yesterday and it was ok because I was sure I'd have that money plus maybe a tiny bit more..but she said no. Now, I don't know what I'm going to do. Their lists were full of small things because they knew I couldn't buy them the big items they wanted. They've been saving up for about 6 months to get a WII in the hopes that mom would put in the rest of the money and they know now that I can't do that. What they don't know is that there just might not be a Christmas this year; that the little plastic canvas snowmen I made for each of them this year may be the only present there is to give them. Oh God, what am I going to do? I had planned on taking that money and going black friday shopping to get the best deals I could and now there's no money.

I would not worry so much...they know you love them. If you want go to salvation army and sign up for help for the holidays. They will provide gifts for the kids, and oa few extras.

You may be able to get the kids on an angel tree. Our church has people buying gifts for a local school. We aren't to wrap the gifts so the parent can wrap them.
