If y’all could help me I’d be most appreciative. As a college student who’s living off his parents and with bleak job oppertunities (Really bad class hours combined with an upcoming surgery) I find myself a little short on funds this year for presents. I thought I’d do something different, and a little more meaningful I’d hope, and give my family gifts of time, I’d do things for them, instead.
For my parents I’m promising to keep the kitchen clean, help more with the laundry, keep my dad’s computer desk clean, and cook dinner every night. (May not sound like a lot, but, unfortunately, I’m known for being lazy, and this actually will require concious effort. My parents will recognize this. I’m hoping these gifts will help me overcome laziness as well, my present to myself I guess).
For my youngest sister, and this was incredibly difficult, I’m promising to be polite and respect her choice of boyfriend, something that nobody in the family is very wont to do. She’ll really appreciate this too, I think.
My two older sisters, and their fiances, however, have me thrown for a loop. I can’t think of anything I can do for them. Can y’all help maybe?
Pair 1: She’s starting a wedding consulting business soon, is in school for it now, he’s a 911 operator for the police. They prefer staying in rather than going out, she has a cat, his family is into horses. He has vision problems (is going blind, might be within the next 10 years) so darkness is a problem for him.
Pair 2: She’s planning on going back to school next semester, he’s in the postal service for a town about an hour away, he commutes. They’re the ‘outdoors’ couple, snowboarding, water skiing, and go out to eat often. They’re really into movies and videogames.
… Any ideas? I’m trying to think of something that will take effort on my part but will help them or be something they’ll really enjoy. Long post, but any help is appreciated! Thank you!
