I hate shopping so much. I did perk up in Anthropologie when I saw some really cute aprons, I started unrolling them to see if they were 1/2 or full aprons. I don't like the 1/2, not enough coverage. Then the girl that was working that section got all nasty about me unrolling them and proclaimed loudly "i wish people would stop unrolling the aprons!"to her other co-worker. So I left apron-less.
We left it too late to get our niece Maiya the Christmas present we promised - sold out everywhere - so I did a mad dash on Amazon and found it. They won't be back in town until late this week so it will have time to arrive. Whew.
Today we have been cleaning the house and sprucing things up for relatives to come over tomorrow. Now it's time to wrap the presents and we have Christmas carols playing to get us in the spirit.
And then of course A Christmas Story will be playing starting tonight -- a classic which Paul and I quote from year round.
Hope everyone has a great holiday!
I really love the idea of wrapping the gifts the night before Christmas. My folks are doing it right now with theirs, but my hubby is so into shaking his gifts and guessing 3 weeks before Christmas that I have no choice but to buy them and wrap them in advance.
A Christmas Story is our favorite, too. Such great fun, and an era I've always been so fascinated by, so it's a real treat to throw that DVD into the player each year.
Have a wonderful sweltering Christmas in Florida, and Happy Holidays to everyone else, too!
Wishing everyone much love and fun at this time. :o)
If the cranky sales girl wants to avoid re-rolling the aprons, she could make their display more user friendly and organize them according to length.
I used to work retail, and while I sympathize with anyone who does/did a tour of duty in that industry, I'll be the first to call this a no-brainer. She was out of line. Don't make shopping like an obstacle course for the buyer and you won't have to deal with the aftermath.
I'm just sayin'.........
Happy New Year if I don't write again soon!!
