Haiku Friday: Christmas Gifts

A Starbucks gift card.
But wait! Here are two more cards!
Caffeine high for me!

A new game – am I
smarter than a 5th grader?
We’ll see, Foxworthy.

Aaron got a book:
Star Wars: Jedi vs. Sith
Total geek heaven.

So, what did you get for Christmas? My most impressive gifts had to be the three Starbucks gift cards – a combined value of nearly $100. Nursing school will be easier next quarter with all that caffeine in my veins. The girls received several Toys R Us gift cards, too, and I can’t wait to go shopping for them. (I know, I’m such a dork for getting excited to buy toys NOT for me.)

Also, thank you all for your support last week. I really hope I’ll be able to tell everyone what’s going on soon.

To play along for Haiku Friday, follow these steps:

1. Write your own haiku on your blog. You can do one or many, all following a theme or just random. What’s a haiku, you ask? Click here.

2. Sign the Mister Linky below or at Jennifer’s blog with your name and the link to your haiku post (the specific post URL, not your generic blog URL). We will delete your link if it doesn’t go to a haiku. If you need help with this, contact Jennifer or myself.

3. Pick up a Haiku Friday button to display on the post or in your sidebar by clicking the button above.

  2. My kids have a lot of the toys they do because I like playing with them too. You are not the only one.

  3. we have a house full of star wars stuff…ridiculous amounts!!!

  4. I got a new crock pot that isn’t falling apart, unlike my old one.

    And $15 in Starbuck’s cash. Mmmm, caramel machiatto…


  5. Yum! Starbucks moola is a GOOD gift. Hope your studies go well, too. It takes so much work, but I’m glad you’re following your dream. 🙂

  6. This year I gave myself the gift of staying as close to sanity as is possible for me at this time of year. Oh, and a camera.

    Congrats on the long-term caffeine fix.

  7. Mrs. Chicken says:

    starbucks cards are manna from heaven. hope your situation gets better soon, whatever it may be.

  8. I worried about you after last week. I hope all is better.

    The $100 on java? WoW! That’s like 30 cups of the good stuff. YUM. You lucky gal!

    My hub would love the geek book, too.

  9. Toy shopping is the best…especially with gift cards! They are like free money!

  10. Caffeine highs are a definite plus to adulthood. I’m curious to see if you are smarter than a fifth grader. I know I’m not as I’ve got a fifth grader in the house.

  11. I love to buy toys too! I get so excited…the hubby tells me to stop living vicariously through her!

    I missed out on whatever happened last week, but I hope that you are all okay.

  12. YAY for Starbucks cards and toy shopping (I love it too!). I hope all is going well and that you can share soon.

    I got every kitchen appliance I asked for and will be in cooking heaven!

  13. Hey Christina..
    Have missed you! Merry Christmas to you and your family. I must say, I am a bit envious of the Starbucks gift cards. I am a hopeless addict for their Vanilla Latte’s…

    Happy New Year!
