Since the Holiday is a current thing allowed in General Discussion [View all]

I am a disabled mortician. I like to say I'm just on sebbaticle. Makes me feel smarter...

My only child moved out earlier this year for college. Since it's been just him and I for so long, I've kinda lost my mind this year. Empty nest syndrome is a real thing.

So, obviously I'm not able to afford a super expensive game system or electronic this year. Broke and all... my heart still breaks for those in war and poverty.

I was able to get two packages of dress socks in various designs.

Today I wrapped each individual pair so it seems he has more from me...

I'm laughing and I know he's going to be chuckling tomorrow.

Happy Holidays my dear DU friends. Make it count even when you're down and out.
