As you know Chris and I didn’t get Christmas gifts for each other this year. Finances are just too tight. We’re fine, but right now we just can’t over spend on anything. I’m pretty sure our financial situation will get better in January and better each month afterwords. I’ve been working on a few things and expect to start seeing some profit from my work around that time.
I sort of got my Christmas present early this year anyway. Remember I got a laptop in August? Yeah, we can call that my September Birthday gift, and my Christmas gift too. I’m fine with that. So … since I already got my gift, I’m now wondering what nice thing I can do for Chris in the new year when our finances are better?
I know he loves the Dave Matthews Band. A friend from Louisiana put us onto the band many many years ago. We were surprised to hear that Dave Matthews is actually Canadian but he’s made the majority of his success in the US. The band is so good they even won a Grammy in 1997 for Best Rock Vocal performance by a duo or group for the single So much to Say. We both enjoy the band, but Chris as I said is a big fan. It always seems like the Dave Matthews band is touring or playing somewhere as we hear about them quite often but we’ve never managed to see them play yet.
Now, I know they are playing in L.A. in March. March 23rd and 24th to be exact. I don’t know if we can make it to an L.A. concert, but I think I might investigate purchasing some Dave Matthews Band Tickets. That would be a perfect belated Christmas gift for Chris. If I can manage to make it a surprise that would be even better.
Wish me luck on my hunt!
