Just Got My Christmas Present


I might have mentioned once or twice before how horrible I am with gift giving / receiving. If it’s in the house – it has to be exchanged. Drives me crazy to wait. Bill went out for bagels this morning and was gone for over an hour. When he came back in, I KNEW he did what he does every year – he went out to buy me my Christmas Present on Christmas Eve. Talk about last minute gift buying

I love this year’s gift because it’s so thoughtful.

Remember the psychic I went to see last week? She told me that I should take sea salt baths every now and then to remove any negative energy that’s attached itself to me. I know it sounds very hokey pokey and believe me – my husband is SO NOT INTO THAT SORT OF THING. But, I am and I was determined to get some sea salt. I ended up picking some up at the supermarket and have been trying that out the last few days.

Well, Bill went and bought me an entire collection from Ahava that uses DeadSea Salt (bath salt, hand cream, body lotion, foot cream etc). It just shows me that he listens to me / cares about what I need – even if it’s not something he necessarily believes in.

I love it.

  1. My hubby always waits till the last minute too. With one exception …Every year he usually buys me a purse Im wanting. He thinks I dont know but I know he got me the purse I showed him 3 weeks ago. I said Oh honey look! I love that!” His response was “Like you need another purse!”. Now you would think that Im not getting the purse, right? Ohhh noooo ! You see he TRIES this reverse psychology thing every year and I always know when he does it that I WILL get that gift! LOL As for the rest of my gifts its always a 3 o-clock Christmas Eve mad dash to get me things. … MEN! LOL

  2. Vera/Bill…I live in Nassau County and am obsessed with Ahava. I know I can order it online but I would love to know what store carries it. Can you ask Bill where he got it? Thanks!
