The time of year is here. With Thanksgiving over, we can no longer pretend that it's not getting ever closer to Christmas. Sigh...

I have done absolutely no Christmas shopping at all. My sister has been showing off all the presents she got every one and has them stashed everywhere. I haven't even thought about what to get my kid, or my husband, let alone the multitudes of family members that I will see on Christmas Eve, at my mom's house.

Last year, I worked at Target at this time. I knew what was going to be the best sales and so on. I had everything bought and wrapped before the weekend after Thanksgiving was done. I think this year, though I am going to see how long I can go without buying anything until the last minute. Get in on the last minute deals. Hey at least I can pretend that I have a plan.

But I still have to call my sister and get the master list. I always forget someone, and she never does. Hey, I have five brothers and two sisters and they all have kids. I also have my husband's two brothers, sister, parents, and their spouses. Something like 50 people or something total.

Ok, I'm done whining now. I guess I'll at least start making that list. That's something, right?

  2. Five brothers, two sisters...me too! Fortunately most of them are still too young to have spouses and/or kids.
    But I can feel your pain. :o)
