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.)
