Shopping! Reminders of the impending Christmas season are everywhere. The grocery store is playing Christmas music and even Sirius Radio has started an all-Christmas station. Yippee, it's now programmed as a favorite in the car. (Big sucker for the holiday tunes). And yes, I belt it out when I'm alone in the car. (Don't judge)
But the biggest reminder (for the past few weeks) is the un-ending, whiney, drone coming out of Aunties mouth "ohh, I have nothing bought for anyone. It's only a few weeks away, (blah, blah, blah)." Now imagine that playing over and over in a loop all.freakin.day!
So, I've taken tomorrow off and as soon as we drop Mom at adult daycare, we are heading for the city to shop. And we are not coming home until she has an arm load of bags! (Even if it kills me)
My biggest problem with Christmas shopping?? Not buying everything for myself of course. It's sooo hard. Lol.
In an effort to try and satisfy my urge to buy myself everything, I made a pre-emptive strike. I splurged and ordered myself the most gorgeous gloves. They arrived today.
Danier kid leather black opera length gloves!! Oh my......they are freakin gorgeous. They just are my favorite things ever.
Did I lie? Are they not awesome? Merry Pre-Christmas to ME :)
Wish me luck tomorrow. And give me the strength not to leave auntie in a dressing room if she starts to whine. (Kidding). (Well, sort of....lol)
