My Holiday Gift

My husband really did a great job on my Christmas gift this year.  Even though we always say that we won’t get each other anything because we could save the money to do something else (like have the carpets cleaned – romantic, I know!), he knows that is a trick.  If he really doesn’t get me anything, he runs the risk of me being devastated and holding it over his head until the … [Read more...]
