Well, today I went Christmas shopping. Oh, I'm so glad that Jesse let me do it a little now! We don't get paid till Thursday, then we have to coordinate shopping trip with the boys, for the boys and separately with each boy for each other ~ plus all the other people ~ each other, extended family. PHEW. That just makes me tired just thinking about it.
So today, I went to Kohl's (yes, I used my credit card, but we are going to pay it off when we get paid). Found lot's of great deals. Got an extra 20% off. Plus got back some pretty significant Kohl's cash! So, all in all a good deal! Anytime I shop at Kohl's I usually use my card and get the extra off anyway! Saves me money and that is always a good thing!
I just hate trying to shop for anybody but my 4 guys. It's so hard to know what to get them! I have some friends that I can easily buy for, but family is always difficult for me. So, I hope they like what they get. If not, I'm never offended by them using it as a regift or taking it back (only, I forgot gift receipts.... :/) So sorry!
But I told Jesse when I got home that UGH, I was so glad he suggested doing it this way because I probably would just collapse in a heap of tears in the middle of some crazy hectic store full of last minute shoppers. Oh, how I used to love to shop. I just don't have the energy to do it anymore. I have to take it in small increments. It does nothing for my anger issues. It usually just annoys me.
So I am so closer to being done than I was yesterday! And ALOT less stressed! Yay!!!!!!
Tomorrow, I am getting up early and starting to bake 4 dozen cookies!! I have a cookie swap tomorrow evening and I am SO very excited! It's a group of ladies from my MOPS group. I had been wanting to try MOPS out, but I guess hadn't been brave enough to try it. So when my pastor's wife had a Christmas party for the church ladies, there was a ministry expo ~ little tables set up to see all the different ladies ministries available and I got a chance to ask about MOPS. I went the next day and I had SO MUCH FUN! And I ended up getting in a small group that is having a cookie swap. So I lucked out! I'm looking forward to it. It's been so long since I have had some "girl time"!!!!!!! Yay!
So, I better sign off! Lots to do around here! Blessings to you for this Christmas season!
