I can see the light!

November is CRAZY! Crazy with Christmas preparations and shopping.....I like to be somewhat done by Decmber 1st to avoid the crunch of the season's rush! I still need to make some cards and gifts but the madness is over. I pity those of you who still have to venture out into the stores and deal with crazed shoppers.

What is up with that anyways? Why do people leave it to the last minute and then act like crazed animals ready to run you over with their shopping carts? The stores are a wonderful place to be to see, hear and smell Christmas, but for the most part, people are NUTS!!!!! I've been bumped from behind with carts, stepped on and elbowed and even growled at by the occasional desperate husband who doens't have a clue what to get his wife. Christmas often really brings out the worst in people and you have to wonder where they're holiday spirit has gone?

Don't leave your shopping until the last minute, people!!! Don't be part of the madness!!!! When you feel that familiar sense of panic...that uncontrolled desire to ram your cart into the person in front of you, or that annoyance at the sound of even the smallest of children's laughter........walk away, I say. Step away from the bows, the garland and the lights.....put down the barbie or matching shirt and tie....just walk away. It's time for a reality check.

Totally agree. I have about 3 small things to get yet but mostly done. Get it done so you can actually enjoy the parties and all your family and friends.
