I Love My Non-Existent Family

on November 30, 2009

Driving home from work the other night it dawned on me that had I gotten married and had children when I was in m early twenties — I would be getting more Christmas presents.  The small child in my decided that this was NOT FAIR.  So I have officially decided (as opposed to unofficially deciding) that my non-existent family should be getting me Christmas presents this year.

I have discovered that my non-existent family is not good at keeping surprises.  For example my non-existent oldest daughter who is now in cosmetology school just bought me a nice new flat iron for Christmas.  She couldn’t wait for Christmas day and insisted I begin using it immediately.  She’s so cute that way.

I know it’s suppose to be a secret, but I believe my non-existent husband is going to get me a Wii and Wii-fit for Christmas.  Shhhhh.  Don’t let on that I suspect.

I’m not yet sure how many children I have but will keep you posted as the presents roll in.

    I LOVE your non-existant family. Mine got me those same things… only they may have surprised me a few months ago, so they’ve forgotten and well… they’re out shopping for me again. We have the best non-existant husbands and kids EVER!

    hi there, found this through Tiffany’s shared items and I HAVE to comment because I LOVE this idea! I always end up buying myself a bunch of consolation presents through the holidays and for birthdays and I think your logic is my new rationale.
    Also, I just finished describing to a co-worker someone I am working with on a deal for work named Kip (tall, thin, attractive and super eager and upbeat). I’m going to assume he’s your husband and I must say, he’s a really nice guy!

    You are so funny! Can I come over and play your Wii? Adam won’t buy any gaming system over $50. Hello! They don’t make Atari anymore!
