Manperson got his annual safety bonus today in his check, just in time for me to pay off the layaway for the kids' Christmas. I've been stressing over whether he would even get a bonus this year. One year they gave him two hundred bucks and a PlayStation3. My son was happy, but the presents under the tree were slim.

I know, I know. Not long ago, I was talking about how I hate the materialism of the holiday. I still do. However, knowing that I can give my kids a few things that will make their eyes light up Xmas morning, I'm willing to be a hypocrite for a minute.

Plus I can get my beloved manperson a well-deserved little something.

They're going to be so excited, y'all!

ETA I can also afford to get my BC filled! Yay for regulated hormones!
