I made it out alive!
So despite my best intentions, I ended up finishing up my Christmas shopping today instead of last week. I was really worried about going out with the crowds of crazed shoppers but I was okay! Granted, I had already done the Walmart and Toys R Us runs last week, so I only had smaller locations to hit today. Still, on the last Saturday before the 25th, TWO DAYS before the 25th, i braved a dollar store to get stocking stuffers and gift wrap. I thought it would be the worst, because on Wednesday it was packed with four lines snaking down through the whole store. Today there were enough people to know how close the big day is, but it wasn’t as crowded as I expected and we stood in line for the cash for all of three minutes.
I always mean to get my shopping done early but finances dictate more last minute buying than I’d like. Yet somehow I always survive. Whew.
I hope none of you have to go shopping tomorrow, but if you do, good luck, and breathe in and out!
