Unrealistic - A week or three to Bonnaire to dive, spearfish, and get a sunburn.

Realistic- A new wedding band (I quit wearing my wedding ring many many years ago d/t the mount tearing non-latex gloves at work, since those days my arthritis has destroyed my knuckles and the ring needs resized, but I prefer a band) We went and picked out a channel set white gold 1/2K diamond band this weekend and it is out for sizing. I have been wearing a cheapo 10K gold band from Wal-Mart that I bought in late 90's, for $35.00.

Unrealistic: To have my son, brothers, and mother back. This time of year is hard, emotionally.

Realistic: A $10 gift card to my favorite local coffee shop. My DD's don't believe me when I tell them that is all I truly want!

Unrealistic: The ability to eliminate huge lists this time of year. IOW: a quiet Christmas at home with dog and SO instead of the craziness of 2 different celebrations, traveling, shipping gifts all over the country, baking, candy-making with kidlets, and doing the shopping for several of the men in my life.

Realistic: a quiet day with just SO/pup (to include our gifts/stockings and a nice big fire in the fireplace). Hopefully sometime before the New Year...or maybe a long hot soaky bath. Or shelving for my new garage space. I'm not complicated!

Unrealistic: xshitbag to get all the crabs and AP's tits to fall off.

Unrealistic, every single thing on my to do list completed by someone else for me.
Realistic, to accomplish the most important tasks on my to do list and then a nice massage!

nightowl1975 posted 12/11/2019 00:02 AM

Unrealistic: Any gift other than whatever I buy myself

Realistic: Iíve bought myself a book, an umbrella, a few outfits, and I have a massage left on a package deal I got a few months back.

I do miss having someone buy me gifts of any kind, but not enough to seek out a partner. So, I buy my own stuff. Merry Christmas to me!

ibonnie posted 12/11/2019 00:23 AM

Unrealistic: no gifts! At all! None!!!!! I have enough stuff, and I'm trying to declutter my life as it is. I find it more frustrating to have to find out how to donate and/or recycle what's been given to me, which most years is what I do with the majority of the tchotchkes I receive and extremly questionable sweaters and accessories my MIL gives me every year. It's gotten to the point where I loathe Christmas, because my WH has a large family, and they either go to the dollar store or CVS every year and buy our kids a ton of cheaply made plastic toys, and I know this makes me sound ungrateful, but when they break almost immediately, or they get the same racecar from three different people it's just... ugh. Please don't. Save your money, throw $5 in an envelope and I'll put it in the kid's piggy banks.

Realistic: two pairs of jeans and new sneakers.

Unrealistic - to walk into every local animal shelter in my area and give a forever home to the dog that is always overlooked, never wanted and has been there way too long.

Realistic - to sponsor a few of these glorious fur babies, visit them, take them for walks, car rides and be their friend, until the day they finally get adopted or I win the lottery.

Unrealistic: For my bro in law to not have terminal cancer.

Realistic: Whatever my son and hubby get me is fine with me. Probably something DC Comic related or whatever tickles their fancy.

I'm so sorry to hear about your BIL jaded angel

The first thought that popped in my head for unrealistic is the scene from the princess bride where Inigo Montoya fights the six fingered man. I want to fight infidelity itself and get my vengeance.

I don't really have a material realistic want to be honest (I'm hard to buy gifts for). But while looking for the above GIFs, I came across an interview of Mandy Patinkin telling a story that his character personally resonated with him...and it absolutely made my day to learn. He lost his father to cancer and imagined killing the six fingered man was him killing his father's cancer. I always loved his sub plot, but now that scene is even more powerful to me (I almost lost my mom to cancer).
