I have a love/hate relationship with this time of year. This year I treated myself to a Bah Humbug hat! Haven't worn it out of the house yet but it makes me smile. I am a big procrastinator. I plan to buy early (even planned to order online this year) but of course waited until the end. I was going to do my big shopping last Friday (early in the day) but we had a snowstorm. I refuse to go to the mall on the weekend (I hate the mall at any time of the year). But I went out early on Monday and got a good chunk of my gifts. I ordered a few things online this past weekend (had to pay a bit extra to be delivered on time ). Last night my husband and I went back to the mall for a few items. Still hate the mall (it was very crowded) but got some time alone with my hubby . Picked up a few gift cards today. I was going to cook tonight (my sister-in-law and family are coming over) but they just called and offered to buy us Chinese food! Yay! No cooking tonight. Okay, so the tree is not even decorated yet and no presents are wrapped but I still have another 12 hours or so.
Have a very Merry Christmas and/or Happy Chanukah (we celebrate both in our house). May Santa leave you a healthy body!
