Confession Time

Ordering Christmas gifts for my girls online makes me all happy and giddy for many reasons.

~ I don't have to deal with annoying people while hunting down the best gifts.

~ I can compare prices without using a tank of gas going from store to store, only to return to the first store to purchase the gift. 

~ I don't have to drive as much in bad weather. Nor do I have to transport tons of packages from store to car, then from car to house. I have a tendency to fall in the winter months (snow or no snow). Carrying packages only unbalances me more. 

~ I love getting packages in the mail, even if they aren't for me (sad, I know).

~ last, but not least, I love the looks on the girls faces when I get packages and tell them it's a Christmas gift for one of them.  Listening to them beg for me to just tell them who it's for is wonderful. So far they haven't come up with any good bribes! LOL

Don't get me wrong, going out and shopping for Christmas gifts is very fun. It's just that it becomes daunting after a while. Being able to do the majority of the shopping online really helps in allowing my Christmas cheer to stay at a high level when I do go out in public during the winter holidays. 

Good luck to all who are out there shopping! Be safe and trust no-one! Especially that one shopper who sidles up close to you, and lingers, as you're checking out the last of an item on the shelf. They are just waiting for you to set it down to compare it to the other model so they can snatch it. True story!

Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas my friends. 



  1. I try to get all my shopping done in one day. Sadly this year I really have left it too late to do much online shopping. Last year it was touch and go whether some of the gifts would arrive in time.
    You are much more organised than me :)

    1. Hi Trish!

      In truth I'm not as organized as it sounds, but I'm getting there. In truth, it's taken me thirteen years of shopping for my kids to even get this far! Also once all the packages get here it's more chaos than organization. Having said that, I'll admit that I'm a pro at understanding organized chaos better than true organization.

      Merry Christmas!!
