Caught in the Ornament
December 23, 2008
Yesterday I began AND FINISHED my Christmas shopping. There is something very freeing in waiting until the last minute. You know it has to be done. No running back to buy just one more thing. No second guessing. No trying to even out the piles.
We had one thing to buy today for one kid. Rob ran into the sporting goods store to buy it while I ran into a different store to buy something for Rob’s mother. I’ll admit that I felt a little bad buying her a present on 75% off clearance.
As we walked through the store really quickly, me dragging Miles who was jogging along side me. “Why are we walking so FAST, mommy?” Miles asked.
“Oh honey,” I answered, “This is called power shopping.”
We also did power baking. You can read about that over at Work It, Mom!
later on today. now.
