Yep, hear the little boogers shout HOORAY! Hear the mom who needed to do some Christmas shopping and some work without the kids' help sighing OY VEY!
Shhhhhhhh, don't mention the whole Santa Claus thing because my two still seem to believe. That means Mom has some shopping to get done on the sly, and Christmas is coming soon, oh my! Alright, alright, you caught me. I am a last minute shopper. If shopping ahead of time works for you, then I am happy for you. . .but I can't do it. I like the whole Christmas gift hunting atmosphere that comes into play when you shop close to the holiday, plus so far I've been blessed with kids who aren't asking for the season's hottest new toy and haven't had to plan my attack on stores. It's also my horrible curse to not be able to hide things securely without forgetting where I hid them! Add to the list my inability to not buy some Christmas presents during December. I could buy ahead of time, but then I'd spend even more money because I'd just have to buy some more things when the big day got close.
No Christmas shopping today, though, and it's okay as long as the ice is gone by tomorrow or Wednesday. Let me tell ya, today is an 18 degree winter day, and I'm content to stay home and not venture out! Mallory, Betsy, and all of you who live farther north than me, your negative degree weather makes me shiver!
Ah, so what are we going to do with the rest of our day around here? We've made biscuits for breakfast, we've started straightening up the house, and now 2 out of 3 of that "we" are busy playing Webkinz, LOL. What do you like to do on a snow day? or do you get snow days?
