Perk # 41: Cancer Has Streamlined My Christmas Shopping

It is December 15th and I have NO Christmas shopping done.   There’s not a present to be found in this house (except for Santa’s gifts to my children).   And the strange thing is, I am as cool as a cucumber about it.   After all, who is going to say anything if they don’t get a present  from me this year?   I mean really, how would  it  look if you complained that your sister/friend/girlfriend/daughter with CANCER did not buy you a gift?  So, call me a Scrooge if you will, but you are only going to make yourself look bad.

Tip:  Christmas shopping can add unnecessary stress to your life when you are dealing with cancer.  People will understand if you take a year off.  (And if they don’t, they are only making themselves look bad.)

  1. I can hear your family now they will say but the best gift is having you there with them,Wishing you and your family the best Christmas ever!

  2. That’s called playing the cancer card – and I love it! I am playing the cancer card this year with regard to not sending any Christmas cards. Everyone who knows me and loves me knows what I have been through these last six months. They forgive me. Merry Christmas, Florence!
