finally, i have gotten closer to being ready for christmas. all i have to do is shop for christmas dinner and then wrap all the gifts i have hidden...i can handle that part! i got up early this morming and finished the christmas present shopping, and then got out of the stores before the lines got crazy. i do this every year, and always envy those people that get their shopping done in june. how do they DO that? and sometimes i do see things that i think, "ah, so-and-so would love that...that is what i will get them for christmas!" but do i remember? of course not! maybe someday i will learn. yeah, i know... i don't think so either!
