There are HOW many shopping days left till Christmas?


Christmas is eating my lunch.

You’d think the biggest holiday of the year wouldn’t be a problem since I ignored it completely until a couple days ago. Oh, wait, maybe that IS the problem….. I am not one of those people who shop through the year. I am one of those people who wakes up one day and says, OHMYGOD, it’s December 15th, what am I going to do?

Compounding the rush, I’m going out of town right before Christmas then again right after Christmas, and oh yeah, because I’m INSANE I agreed to take a day-trip today to Ohio. The local 4-H club that my kids participate in is selling Amish cheese for a fundraiser. I’m supposed to go pick up the cheese. I want to take pictures of them, too, but I think they don’t allow photos, so this should be interesting….. But you know I can’t NOT take a picture!!! (Come back tomorrow for the end of this story…..)

    Isn’t it insane how fast Christmas is coming this year? Good luck getting everything done :) I know I won’t! hehe, I have to return the one gift for my mom (computer game) because its defective and they won’t have one in stock till after the holidays. Not good.
