As always, there never seems to be enough time to do the things you wanna do (once you find them). I've looked around enough to know you're the one I wanna ---oops, where was I?
I'm doing the annual last-minute shopping thing. I was out for about 6 hours straight today trying to finish with my Christmas list. This year, I was smarter than usual (for me). Last weekend, I went shopping but didn't buy anything. Instead, I brought along a pad of paper and a pen and wrote down the stuff that caught my eye. I noted the item, the store(s) it was in, and the cost(s). That way, I was able to decide what to spend my measly budget on without worrying that I'd find something better down the road. It worked fine except for the items that sold out in the past week.
I still have 1 or 2 things to get tomorrow. We're having an Open House cocktail-type party on Christmas Eve, so everything has to be bought and wrapped before then. Anybody out there want to stop by?
