Time to talk shop . . . as in Xmas shopping.
How many of you have wrapped up your Christmas shopping?
And how many of you haven’t begun?
I fall into the latter category. I’ll wait until the Monday or Tuesday before the blessed day. But I only have a few people to buy for, and I have a pretty good idea of what my purchases will be. So, all going well, I should be in and out of, say, Sears in an hour or two.
And, yes, I will check out the clothes and will probably emerge with something for me, too.
I wonder how many other people buy something for themselves while shopping for others at this time of the year?
I used to wait until the day before. No crowds, easy parking, limited choices (makes the decision of what to buy easier). But I have been doing more buying online and finished weeks ago.
And yes, I buy things for myself. Which frustrates my wife to no end because it reduces her potential gift list. Of course, being with her is the best gift of all.
