Did I mention I'm going on a cruise with my awesome in-laws in December? Did you know I ALWAYS procrastinate Christmas shopping? Do you think it's too early to put up Christmas decor even if we're not gonna be here over Thanksgiving cuz we're going to be gone Dec 13-21st and I wanna enjoy it a little before we go? Do you know, as I do, that that last question was grammatially incorrect? Would you rather live without your computer or your cell phone for a month? Is your mind now going a million miles an hour?
Ugh. Me too.
So here's my strategy for Christmas this year. I am pretending that today is December 15th (ish). That is usually when I do my best/most frantic shopping. I want all my shopping to be done by Thanksgiving this year so I don't have to fight the crowds or worry that the stuff I ordered isn't going to be here on time. I also don't want to stand in an hour long line at the post office to mail anything either.
This is the new me.
I refuse to be a slave to the holidays this year.
I got 2/3 of my shopping for my kids done last night via the world wide web. It felt sooooo good. I cruised the internet, added stuff to my carts, put in my credit card number & clicked.
And then I wondered if that was breaking the Sabbath.
