Six Word Saturday


hoping everyone is enjoying the holidays!


Want to play along? All that's necessary to participate is to describe your life (or something) in a phrase using just six words. For more information, try clicking here. Feel free to explain or not explain. Add an image, a video, a song, nothing. I love seeing what everyone does with their entries.

Each week (probably on Sunday or Monday), I use random.org to select a bunch of entries to visit.  Or I visit everyone. Or even numbered entries. Or odd numbered entries. Or multiples of three. Depends on what's going on that week.  In addition, please visit the person ahead of you on the list (or visit everyone if you like!). That way everyone receives at least one visit!

If you play along in your blog, please add a link to the Mr. Linky. I appreciate a link back (shiny code below if you like!). Otherwise, you're welcome to leave your six words in this post as a comment.

Please be sure to link either to your main page or (preferably) directly to the 6WS post. Links to blogs that do not contain a 6WS entry will be removed (sorry, just the button in the sidebar doesn't count as participating).

surviving, one nap at a time

I haven't figured out how to sleep yet in my new home. I don't know if the ambient noise machine is better or worse than the street noise and the cats won't stop rattling the blinds to see what's going on outside.

not even fun to dislike her


This book I'm reading right now... I don't mind when a book is long if it doesn't feel long. And I don't mind if a character isn't likable as long as it's fun to dislike him/her. At the moment, I'm too stubborn to put the book down (300+ pages into a 600+ page book) but I can't wait until it's over. What do YOU do with a book/movie/tv series like that? (Nope, not telling you what book it is so don't ask.)

The gift of obligation



First, we'll address the elephant in the room.

Hello, Elephant. Thanks for joining us. On a weekday. And I'm blogging. I realize that's odd. In fact, it hasn't happened since September. Once every six months isn't bad, right? But I'm glad you were able to join us for this special occasion.

Ok, can we move on now? I'd like to have a discussion.

My question is one of gracious gift receiving and obligation.

My birthday is at a time in the semi-future and a family member has sent me a cash gift. This isn't a family member I'm particularly close to in terms of relationship, though the branches on the family tree would indicate otherwise. (I suppose that applies to most of my family.) I say this mainly to indicate that this person is old-school and doesn't send the gift so much because they adore me but because in their day and age (they're older), their social norm dictates that this is the proper amount to send for a gift for me on this occasion. Not to say that I'm not thankful to receive the gift because he isn't required to give me anything and many don't.

His expectation is that I use the gift to buy a fancy dinner for me and my husband (the gift giver emphasizes fancy). It's not a big enough amount to do that - but it is enough that I could spend an afternoon lost in a used bookstore or shopping for myself or doing something else I would rarely do but really enjoy.

So the options are:
  1. Go somewhere "eh" for a meal with my husband that the gift will pay in full.
  2. Put the gift towards a fancy dinner, make up the difference ourselves (we can afford this, it wouldn't be a burden).
  3. Spend the gift entirely on me in some indulgent way that would bring me great joy. 
Which would you choose? I just thought it might be interesting to hear how some of you might handle it. Truthfully, I can say "thank you" and he'll never know the difference. But I'm curious how you feel about gifts like this.

I know as a gift-giver, I may have an idea in mind of how someone would use a gift when I give them cash and I might make a suggestion ("I thought you might want to buy some more craft supplies but know you like a couple of local shops" or "Maybe you'd like to buy a new game for Collin."). But ultimately, it's up to them to decide how they want to spend a cash gift. If I feel so strongly about them spending it somewhere specific, I make sure I buy a gift card to a specific merchant. Otherwise, all bets are off.

Let's chat in the comments!
