Of course Christmas is half of the year away, but I have started to think about what I am going to do this year. Last year I made something of a mess of the Christmas shopping, because I procrastinated and did not get my ducks in a row. I have to figure out what I want to get Amy first of all and the thing that I have in mind is to buy her something that is unique. I know that most fine jewelry is really just cookie cutter type things. If you buy the wife something from one of these shops, she is quite likely to run into another woman wearing the exact same thing. Since I am trying to make it look as though I have put a great deal of thought and effort in this decision, that is not what I am looking for really. I am looking for something a great deal less easy to find I suppose.
The kids are probably not going to be that easy to get out in front of. Obviously they will want whatever is the latest and greatest thing. That is not going to be something which is going to make it simple for me if I want to be early. The biggest thing is probably going to be the latest video game, at least that is what the boys are going to want. I have to hope that no one comes up with a new video game system. I know that Sony is working on a new version of the Playstation and they are probably going to come up with something really expensive. The next big thing is going to be virtual reality and that is going to be very expensive. Of course they are going to be able to make very incredible games with it.
