I REALLY did it this time.

  1. I actually went to a store to do some christmas shopping. I hadn't been to a store (besides auto parts sore and Home depot) in almost 10 years!
    It wasn't too traumatic but then again I chose a place where almost nobody goes. There were no lines and I took my daughter for moral support.
    I bought a bunch of tin lizards for my wife (she collects lizards).
    The rest of my shopping I'll finish up online.
    Everyone keeps saying they are so impressed that I actually went into the store (they can bite me!).
    I only have 2 more gifts to buy my wife then I'm done. One is a hand fired plate (did I mention she collects plates too?) and the other is a Pendelton coat. I'll probably gove her the coat for an anniversary gift though.
    You might wonder how I shopped before online shopping?
    I am kind of embarrassed but I hired someone to do it for me.

    Well that explains all the mess that's going on. How long are you going to continue this torture? First you cut your hair, now you actually go Christmas shopping. Out. In public. In a store.

    Susy - now you know why you got in a car accident today. Now I know why Emma's tooth won't come out.

    How cruel.

    I'm almost embarrassed to admit my son went into Victorias Secret for an annaversary gift for his girlfriend.

    Sometimes people would offer to do it for free!
    I'd just look at them like they were nuts and give them a list and a credit card.
    I don't understand why anyone would ENJOY shopping.

    Shopping is so fun! Maybe if my boobs were just 3 cup sizes bigger I could actually get something from Victoria Secret......

    :chuckle That is too funny! Maybe you are a distant relative to my husband. He even hates to go CAR shopping! He thinks point and click buying is a godsend.

    Tin lizards, huh, Russell? Does she drive a Tin Lizzie?

    I love to shop (when it's not all crazy with people before christmas). I took my Mom shopping this morning and advised her on all her gifts. She says she can't navagate a store without me. LOL

    I found a dead lizard on my couch yesterday.

    In fact if your wife collects lizards, I can send you literally dozens. They love my house.

    They say though lizards are good luck when one lives with you. Wonder what he eats. Plus, they need to start paying rent.
