I was wrapping presents this morning when I realized I only needed one, maybe two more things, and I would be done with my Christmas shopping. Whaaaat?! This perked me up. I did some quick inventory, some quick figuring, and decided to race into town to get those last couple things. I need more bows and tags anyway. So I hurried to get the box for my sister ready to send, grabbed my things, and flew out the door. I got to the post office right as the window service was closing for the day, but because I'd already paid and printed the shipping label I just kinda had to hurl the box at the mail-lady and be on my way. *phew*
I went to Dollar Tree first, thinking bows are bows and no one really cares about them when they're tearing packages open anyway. Wow, was I wrong. The sad looking bows at Dollar Tree were not even worth the dollar I would have had to pay. They weren't a very good deal either. A bag of eight big, loose, falling apart pale colored Christmas bows for a dollar. I went back by the regular wrapping paper stuff and found much nicer, shiny but slightly smaller ones in packs of six, for a dollar. I grabbed a couple packs of those and one package of glittery sticky tags.
At Target I found bags of very nice looking bows, in fun festive colors and designs . . . 25 bows for $3.00. I also found a plastic container of smaller, shiny bows for $4.00, but I don't remember how many are in there. I felt quite alright with paying for something nice for once. I also got the last couple gifts I needed, saved 5% on everything with my Redcard, and hurried back home to get these last things wrapped.
Except for two things that I'm still waiting for in the mail, I am done! Done with shopping, done with wrapping, and done with Christmas cards! Wheeee! Now hopefully I can relax and maybe get some actually make some Christmas treats this year.
I'm also battling a cold now. I suspected it the last day or two but now it's for sure. I'm wanting to get this done so I can just go collapse into bed and sleep a deep and carefree sleep. Well, until the stuffy nose and misery wakes me up in the middle of the night.
Tomorrow I have to sit in class all day at work.
How are you coming along on your shopping, wrapping, and cards?
Do you even send out cards? Because I still haven't gotten one from you. Or you. Or even YOU.
