Bonzai Christmas Shopper : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

For those of you who remember Saturday Night Live with John Belushi and the 'Bonzai' skits just picture him as 'Bonzai Christmas Shopper' and you know what I looked like last night. I started a little after six and, after five stores in the local mall and one in another shopping center I was done and home by eight!

I bought for my daughter, son, son-in-law, Mom and a couple friends. And to think everyone says this is hard and takes so long. I swear it's only a matter of mindset. I went with the goal of finishing in one night and did just that.

To be fair, I realized today I hadn't really gotten anything personal for my son-in-law, but rather all 'gear and gadgets.' Had I realized it last night I could have handled that in the same store I was in for my son. In any event, I'm thinking another 15-20 minutes today ought to do it. ;o) I'll box and wrap everything today and be done. Yippee!!!

Your right Gary, the only way to do it is to start just before the deadline, just have in mind what you want for each person and a backup idea also.

I am trying hard to laugh, but I am so tired that a mild chuckle is all I can come up with!!!!
