    1. straightener
    2. work shoes
    3. work clothes
    4. tennis shoes
    5. casual clothes
    6. perfume

    That's about it. Seems small, but too bad most of that stuff isn't cheap.

    Usually during my daily life, I use Pilot pens and pencils. They are around $10 and the pencil is around $7. So yes, I do use things that are cheaper, because I lose them a lot. However, I would want a Mont Blanc since I will be doing my school Administration interning this summer so I figure it would be professional to have. I also like the weight and feel of the pen. It writes pretty good, but not that much better than a Pilot G2 pen. Must be a guy thing, but with the extra spending money I have (after the bills), I like to buy Watches and then Pens.

    I have got to be honest. And sound like a goody-two-shoes! :blush: I wish I could find the perfect gifts for my parents. Each year, it seems I finally end up just buying something to buy something. The things they want are hard to come across. For example, here's what I know my parents always want.

    Daddy: tractor parts, tractors, tractor parts, tractor parts. And another tractor.

    Mother: New living room furniture.

    Here's the thing. Furniture is expensive, and I'm not sure how much I could afford. Also, the furniture situation is so complicated it's almost out of the question. It would be like playing "Clean House" and pulling teeth to get my dad to let go of the old furniture....He would keep the old furniture, making my mom even more upset at his tendancy to hoard things. And as far as tractor parts, he does not trust me to buy those things for him. So I guess I'll be getting some gift cars to restaurants this year! Not that that's bad, but I'd like to get them something more personal. They're like me: We buy what we want when we want it, so when Christmas comes around, we don't really need anything! :unsure:

    So besides that, what do I want? My husband and I are building a house, and I can't think of anything except that. I just want the house to be finished with as few problems as possible. And after it's built, I'll take a small upright piano. Affordable, but with a decent sound to it.

    Peace in my life. I make life waaaay too complicated and stressful. I'm maxed out at the moment, home sick. I think I just need more relaxing days like this, and more peace. I need a game plan for my life. I want someone to walk up, hand me it written on a piece of paper, and be done with it.

    .....but that's probably not going to happen. So I'd like a new couch.

    ..... but that's probably not going to happen, either. So I'm really torn. I kimd of want a Nintendo DS, but I don't know if I'll use it. I picked out a cute Kate Spade purse, but it's terribly expensive. I love clothes and off-beat jewelry, but I don't need any more. So I have no idea. I feel bad for my dh.

    Yay! After this coming wk's over, I'm FREEEEEE! I have a $60 GC to spend at Nordstrom, but I should just wait till after Christmas where there will probably be a better sale. I'm in no rush to spend it.

    What else does everyone want? :)

    BTW, never heard of Archos.

    Archos are okay players, try Cowon instead. I used to be into audio and audiophiles like their portable products a lot. Their video products are great too.

    The only thing I could think of to put on my list was a winter jacket and my grandmother is getting that for me(I know becuase mom told me to pick out the one I wanted and size). For a ski trip to NC. in Jan. I can not think of anything else that I wanted and that was for my family to be healthy. My sister and mom were both sick the last 2 yrs. I mean sick! Last year- mom had bronkitus(sp?) and sis had to be put in the hospital. (long and complicated high heart rate and high blood pressure). The year before sister had mono and mom got it from her. BAD last 2 Christmases! I am thankful they are both well!
