Today this little guy...
When I asked him what he wanted for his birthday he asked for a Transformer toy & a new hoodie. That crazy kid. But that's what he wanted so that's what I got him - a new hoodie & Transformer game for his DS.
Cause that's what aunties do. Spoil them and send them home.
Happy Birthday buddy!
As for the "other stuff"...
Thanksgiving was fab, although a little rushed. Having mixed families (boyfriends, step moms, sisters who don't talk to brothers, etc.) makes for one heckuva scheduling job.
S & I went out shopping on BF, but not super early so it wasn't too bad. The most crowded store I went into was Bath & Body Works. I literally was in line for 20 minutes before I said forget it.
The people in front of me had coupons and bought specials but got the wrong stuff so the cashiers were sending them back into a very crowded store to get the right stuff. Frankly I couldn't take it anymore.
After that we took a break to see New Moon. I'm not going to go into a big review post about it because everyone has already said it's better than Twilight. And it is. While not perfect, I didn't want the movie to end if that tells you anything.
We did a bit more shopping before going home on Friday and with the pretty spectacular deals I found online yesterday my Christmas shopping is about 60% done.
Not too shabby.
The people I have left to buy for are the ones that need nothing & are a PITA to buy for.
If everyone would just write a Santa wish list shopping would be so much easier.
Speaking of easy, or should I say NOT easy my Christmas tree is up. But not decorated. In fact the decorations are all over my living room floor because I just couldn't talk myself into "fluffing" the tree and putting it all together.
When did it become such a chore to put the tree(s) up?
It was one of my favorite things to do when I was little but now it just seems like work. Especially when I know in a month I'll be putting it all away.
Seems someone has a little bah humbug going on huh?
