Christmas Shopping!

Is it really time already?  Normally I have a nice dent in my shopping by now, but no such luck this year!  It doesn't help that hubby decided to get bronchitis and be out of work for almost 2 weeks, bastard! (note: slight sarcasm here)  It's my own fault really, every year I seem to think there is going to be some money fairy dropping a wad of cash in my pocket....but that just isn't so, unfortunatly! So now I am off to start 1 of possibly many stressed out shopping trips!  I actually love Christmas shopping, it just doesn't love me or my dismal checkbook.  I think as a mother I will feel guilty either way....I buy too much==I am spoiling the and defeating the purpose of Christmas....I buy too little ==I am irresposible because i should have planned my finances better to give them the BEST.  Eh I cant win either way, so Ill just enjoy the time today with my mom, grab some coffee and breakfast and feel accomplished for gettting SOME shopping done BEFORE Thanksgiving!  That's something to be proud of right?

Oh...forgot to mention...all the birthdays!  My son the first week and my dad right before christmas in Dec.  My daughter, my 2 neices and 1 of my nephews in Jan!  Is that even LEGAL!?!!?!?  And right next to eachother too!  Nephew Jan 5th Neice Jan 6th  Daughter Jan 13 Neice Jan 14  WHAT!  I swear these kid's are going to drive me up a wall!  But every year we manage to pull it off somehow, and every year around this time I start to FREAK you would think I'd be used to it lol!

Oh well, enough procrastinating, time to go on the first Christmas shopping trip of the year!  Thank God 105.7 is has been playing Christmas tunes since nov may get me in the mood lol!  And i will deny saying this, but I wish it was makes the whole experience more fun!  Ok ok I'm going...for real this time!

I just went on my first Christmas shopping trip of the year and I feel the same way! If I buy too much I feel guilty, if I buy less I feel guilty. Ugh. I hope we both get it done soon!

I feel your pain - my dh had pneumonia and we have 4 birthdays between Thanksgiving and New Year's. It's all overwhelming - but every year we get it done. This year will be no different.

new follower from MBC - hope you come visit me!
