Remember my post from yesterday where I wrote gift-giving should be an entirely relaxed and stress-free experience?
Well, I might be a hypocrite but I had a little gift-related situation yesterday which flung me into a dilemma that I call the "inability-to-stick-to-your-plans" dilemma.
In our family, gift-giving can pose as a source of stress simply for the matter that we often believe what we bought is simply not enough or well-balanced. I have two sisters, a boyfriend and parents for which I want to buy not only great presents, but also know they have to be fairly balanced in price and quantity.
When I realised my mum's present won't be here in time for Christmas, I hurried into the city to buy a plan B present and my bigger sister who had initially wished only for financial support for a riding course she wanted to do, suddenly came out announcing she had already paid for it, which threw me into deep depression as, three days before Christmas Eve I didn't have a present for her!
Rushing into the city to get plan B present for my mum and sister, I found another gift for my little sister because I deemed the one I have her rather small compared to the others. Now, with my mum's delayed present, it means she will get two, as does my little sister which convinced me I had to get another one for my big sister and dad, too - so you see where I am headed. Gladly, I really enjoy the gift-giving process and now that I am ready to go for Christmas present-wise, I can hardly wait!
