Fa La La La La

I've just returned from a speedy trip to Target - - I had a little Christmas shopping to take care of. Speaking of which, my mother and I were recently discussing online Christmas shopping. We were both commenting on how, although it feels somewhat impersonal, it is oh-so-satisfying to click your mouse a few times, and suddenly you've shopped for six people on your list in the time it would have taken to simply buckle your seat belt and back out of the driveway. I am attempting to be organized and efficient this year, and although I am off to a good start, I usually tend to burn out and get frantic in mid-December. Not only do I have the stress of shopping (usually with two unruly boys), but then also the added stress of mailing everything on time. All the more reason to shop online - - so many merchants offer free shipping. Another thing I need to take care of is Christmas cards. Haven't exactly decided what I'll be doing this year, but I need to hurry up and make a decision. Mostly, I can't believe that the holidays are upon us already - - where did this past year go??

Happy Thanksgiving!

I agree, shopping on-line is great. For me its less stressful than fighting the crowds in stores. And the best thing....I can shop in my p.j.s!!

I love on-line shopping. I feel I get the best deals; which is huge when buying for 6 kids... I do most my shopping on-line and love when the Fed Ex and UPS men show up to my door!!!
