1 Week Till Christmas

The countdown is on!!

Have you finished your shopping yet?? I am sorta done... unless you count my brother. He has literally told my dad and I that he doesn't want anything. I tried to buy him a sweater from American Eagle because it was cute and I had free shipping - and he said "I have too many clothes from there. I don't want it."

I'm notoriously picky to shop for, but he's just being a brat. 'Tis the season, right?

But with the exception of my brother, I'm basically done. I actually have a couple of returns that I want to do first thing this morning - just so I don't have to think about them after Christmas. And I can focus on the amazing after-Christmas deals.

The retail jungle enlightened me to the fact that some people haven't even started Christmas yet. I chatted with a grandmother yesterday who has 14 people coming into her home on Tuesday and she only purchased the first gift yesterday. I about had a heart attack at the thought.

As for me, the gifts are in the mail, there are presents under the tree (not all of them, but some of them), and there are cookies in my stomach. 'Tis good.

Come back Monday for my favorite part of Christmas. Besides the shopping and the getting pissed at relatives and gift-giving anxiety and whatnot.

Have a fabulous weekend!!

I am doing pretty well on my shopping. Not at all stressed about what I still need to purchase.

Brothers are the worst to shop for! My brother was almost the very last gift I bought, and I had spent most of the month try to figure out what to get him.

I'm pretty good on shopping - thanks to the fact that we aren't having Christmas with the in-laws until the end of January - nothing like putting shopping off! Wrapping is what I'm waaaay behind on!

I am one of those procrastinators that has not even started yet. I know, shame on me. I hope to get it all done this weekend. Funny how retail therapy isn't very theraputic when you are shopping for someone else.

I'm not done either, but two of the three gifts I need to get are giftcards. Easy!

Your brother is making your life as difficult as my sister has made mine. Instead of wanting nothing... she wants everything. Except she already has EVERYTHING because she just buys it herself. Or EVERYTHING in a Little Blue Box, if you know what I mean. ...and she's the only one I haven't bought for...

Sounds like a lump of coal is in order.
