Shop Til We Dropped!!


This is what the hubby and I did today! Ok, Ok...I guess that is what I get for totally procrastinating and not going before today. But in my defense after working all day and trying to keep things up and running around the homestead, I am just to gosh darn tired lazy to go out at night.

And anyway, technically I hadn't totally procrastinate. I think I had 3 presents bought before today but honestly whenever you have to get as much as I did today, really what's the difference between 3 and 0!?!?!?

So this morning my husband and I decided to get up early and head out to the stores before all of the other shoppers procrastinators got out there. OH.MY.GOSH!!!! Were we ever so wrong!! Honestly, it wasn't too bad up until about 8:00 or 9:00am, then all heck broke loose!!

By the time we got to Kohl's the lines were halfway around the store. I know probably nothing for all of you brave ones that fight "Black Friday" every year. But this girl is NOT one of those girls. Usually, because I don't rank the seniority at my job (Even though I have been there nearly 11 years. Seriously, don't some people know when to reitire!?!?!?) to get that day off but mainly because with age I have lost the abilty to shop til I drop!!

Even though back in the day, I could out shop the best of them. I even had the classic 80's "Shop Til I Drop" sweatshirt to prove it! Don't laugh, you all know you had the too. LOL!!

But seriously, it wasn't that bad. And I think we got a lot accomplished, even if we tried to do a major power shopping trip and do it all in one day. I think all we have left to do is get my Mom and my Father-in-law's gifts. And maybe a few filler things for the kids. And all of the grocerys for Christmas dinner that we are hosting for the in law's. And clean house. And....And....And....

Ok, maybe I am NOT close to being finished!!! UGGHHH!!! Calgon take me away!!!!!!!
