On another front. My Christmas shopping is done. I don't normally buy for anyone but my daughters. I did give my niece and nephew a 20 spot last time I saw them (my brother calls cash, "the gift that keeps on giving"). John and I usually just give each other a fun trip somewhere for our Christmas present to each other. For the girls, John and I give them money and then I buy them some stocking stuffers. As most of you know, I am more of an experience person, than a thing person. Unless that thing can contribute to a nice experience...Like a bike, or running shoes, or a book. Anyway, this year I wanted to get my girls an experience for Christmas. Something they could do together. I was think something like, taking some yoga classes together or getting a manicure/pedicure together or a nice dinner someplace. I asked the girls what they would want to do as a sister thing, and they suggested getting a punch card at the University rec service building. Perfect. I was able to get a 10 punch pass, so they can use it to take a yoga or spin class or to work-out machine thingys or just to hang out in the fun pool area and use the jacuzzi, the lazy river and the mini rock climbing wall at the pool. However they use it, I hope they have a blast.
