The Fifth Day of Christmas
Today I finished my Christmas shopping. And by "today" I really mean "yesterday" which is to say "Saturday" because we got home last night after midnight and then it was already Sunday. So I missed a day on my blog. I'll get today's post up eventually, too.
Joel and I went to "the big city" which is about 2 hours from us. We went to meet the conductor of their symphony for lunch and see their Christmas concert, but with all the time in between we also went shopping at all of the places we don't have here.
Target! (It's nearly impossible to walk into that store and not spend five thousand dollars, especially if you only get to go once in a blue moon and are not immune to its wily ways. We made it out without too much damage, though.)
Pier One! (I didn't buy much there, and what I did buy was cheap and also necessary. Well, okay, it was as close as you can get to necessary without actually being necessary.)
Bath and Body Works! (Which I was pleasantly surprised to find...had no idea it was there. And even though I already sent my mother on a BBW errand, I had to stock up on soap and such anyway.)
And now we are done. I can enjoy this week without worrying that I still have to buy this thing or that thing or the other thing. We even remembered to buy batteries.
When did you finish your shopping? Or are you still at it?
