I am finally back in my own room! And, the miraculous part is that is doesn't smell like a paint factory anymore. I can go to sleep, in my own bed, without the fear of being poisoned by noxious fumes. Now that's what I call a good holiday present!
So I managed to finish up all the little extras for my room. I swear, it looks like a completely different place! I had a few friends over after school yesterday to check it out and everyone was sooo jealous - especially Ashley from my Home Ec class. She thinks she's, like, the best sewer in our class just because her mom makes quilts or something, so she was really bent out of shape when she found out I'd sewn my curtains and made all those pillows and stuff. Is it wrong that I couldn't help rubbing it in a little?
Now that my room is complete, I am faced with the daunting task of Christmas shopping! I have no idea what to get everyone. Amy should be easy to buy for cuz all she's been talking about for the past few months is the new Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses. So, I'll just get her the DVD and the dancing doll and she'll be the happiest kid on the block. My mom and dad are a different story. They always complain about the gifts I get them.
I know they don't mean to be so ungrateful but they just always get those, "I have no idea why you would buy me something like this" looks on their faces. It's not like I buy bad gifts - they're just really hard to please. Like last year I got my mom these super cute pajamas from American Eagle, you know, so she would look a little bit cooler - and she went on this rant about how she wasn't a teenager anymore and she wasn't about to start dressing like one again. They were pajama pants and a tank top - hardly scandalous - but she ended up returning them!
For my dad, I burnt him a bunch of mixed CDs of his favorite bands and put them in this cool CD case. Think he appreciated them? No! He whined about how he'd rather just listen to records. I think he forgets that the only people who listen to records are like, grandparents. And last time I checked, he didn't have any grandkids yet.
I don't know. Maybe I'll just get them gift certificates or something. I'd buy them DVDs but I'm sure they'd just complain that they prefer VHS. Seriously. What are you guys getting your 'rents? Are they hard to buy for too? if you have some!
