It has begun.........

Today, I went out Christmas shopping with the girls. That's right .... that time of the year is rapidly approaching.

The smack to the head has left me rather hyperactive so off to the mall we went. I had my 15 year old chauffeur drive around (and get a small ding at the drive-thru window at McDonalds).

Since I will be out of a job on December 2nd*, I want to get it all done now. My nephew and my dad are done. My sister and my oldest daughter are just about done.

I plan on being done with all shopping by October 15th. I just cannot stand going out Chrstmas shopping in the silly season. Now if the local mall would just set up some small observation areas on the roof, it would be more fun than whale watching.

This will be the third year in a row I have set this target and I did succeed previously. I also do not put any purchases on credit cards.

*Do not feel sorry for me, I have another job already lined up. I am much more worried about the unskilled workers that work with me. Myself and several of the supervisors are working as hard as we can to get these guys jobs.

I think taking a pair of binoculars to the roof of the mall and just sit back and watch the incredible battle for parking spots would probably be more fun than watching most of the reality tv shows that pollute the air ways these days

Silly, I see you are from the same mold as myself. I am amazed at what goes on in parking lots at Christmas. The battle for a parking space is intense, insane and generally immature.
