    I got Tim tickets to the only show for the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and also their 3 CD box set which includes a DVD of some of their performances.

    I have been hinting to him, and torturing him about his gift, telling him its super cool, but the only deal is he has to drive there because it will be dark and I don't like driving downtown at night. He knows we are going to an event of some sort, but he can't seem to figure out what.

    Last night we were in the car, and the dj's start talking about the group coming to town, and how the show is sold out, and how great last year was etc. Tim's like, "man I wish we could have known about them being here sooner. I would have gotten tickets." It took all I had not to say I already got them, so I amused that thought by saying I would check ebay to see if someone was selling some, and if the price was reasonable, I would get them.

    NUTHIN"!
    We agreed not to exchange, and if our credit card is under control, we are going to take a trip next summer. We wanted to this year, for our tenth anniversary, but it didn't work out. So that's what we're doing!

    hey, whatever works for you. Tim and I had a similar agreement that if our finances didn't look on the black (because this time of year, overtime is nil), we would just get some presents or I would make some, for immediate family only.

    BUT...since Tim got in with this new company QRS, they still have lots of business, because even though they do what the other company, NTS, does as far as traffic control, they have a slightly different market. QRS works mostly with utility companies, so most of their work is called out for at the last minute. Whereas NTS, they worked stuff that is slated to be worked on in advance like new housing areas, highway reconstruction, etc. This time of year, there are the usual water main breaks, power lines down from ice, etc, so Tim is still averaging 4-5 hrs a week in overtime with QRS.

    Well, my husband's brother just called. They are going on a last-minute shopping trip. He is probably going to get me something. He always does that! And he always buys stuff for himself, too! :spank3:

    We do the 'presents to ourselves' thing too. Tim bought himself a Dremel kit.
    my present to myself was the 3-disc collector DVD of Titanic, just out a few weeks ago. I wanted to watch it so bad when I saw it, so i got it. I highly recommend it, as it shows the original scripted ending (WAY different than the final version) as well as commentary by all the cast and crew, cool documentary stuff, and lots of other goodies.

    I know I'm getting something good from Tim Horton's. I bought "him" a Ottawa Senators shirt. Do you think $7.99 is too much?

    Really? How does it end? I probably won't get a chance to see it.

    We aren't able to get anything for each other this year thanks to the fuel pump on the car going out and the dog getting sick. It's o.k. by me tho,the dog is feeling great now,my car is working(no more driving my husband's truck!),and the kids are having a wonderful Christmas as usual,that is the most important to me.
