Christmas time hasn't been a lot of fun lately - the kids are grown up enough that shopping isn't real fun.
One thing we did several years ago, and I think we are going to do again - and hopefully annually -
Myself and whoever wants to go with me (usually my daughter) go to the local toy store and buy a couple hundred dollars worth of toys to give to the Toys for Tots collection. Its a good feeling, but also a lot more fun than just giving cash as a donation.
I miss shopping for little ones, but we just don't have any to shop for these days.
I don't know why we didn't do it the last few years - well, yes I do - I've been dealing with depression. But, ya know, this is something I do for myself and it does make the holidays a little more fun when you don't have the fun factor built in with kids.
