Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

And a Partridge in a Pear Tree
Well, it took me all morning to run all my errands and grab some lunch, so I really didn't start Christmas shopping till about 1:30 PM. I shopped until about 4:30 PM, when fatigue and a really bad headache sent me home to the couch for a nap until just now. Of those 3 hours of shopping, fully one hour was spent sitting in unbelievable parking lot traffic and just getting in and out of parking spaces. I'm SURE there were a record number of fender benders out there today. UGH. And if the retailers aren't having a merry financial Christmas with the crowds I saw out there today, then they're doing something wrong.

But it's over. I'm done. I even got gifts for the family our office adopted for Xmas. A basketball for the boy, clothes for the little one, and a cool collection of "Hello Kitty" items for the girl who had asked for them on her list. I got Mom some nice bed and bath stuff and a gift card to boot.

All the on-line gifts have either arrived or been ordered, and I picked up the last of the in store things today. I have to assemble a couple of boxes of things to ship here and there, and I have to make and can the homemade gift I am creating for the neighbors and coworkers tomorrow.

Now, it's off to grab a shower, get dressed, and head to the first of two parties this evening.

I'd really rather stay home, light a fire, watch a movie, and go to bed early if you want to know the truth. Ho, ho, ho.
