jingle bells, jingle bells

I freely admit that I don’t always enjoy Christmas shopping.  It’s just so darn stressful, trying to find a present for everyone on my list.  Not that I’m trying to find the “perfect present” – whatever that means – I simply want to find something that the recipient will like.  It’s not easy.  I wander through stores, scroll through websites, ponder in the shower, text family members – and then end up buying everyone books anyway.

I’m happy to say that I’m doing much better this year.  I picked up a few presents in Home State over Thanksgiving; I’ve ordered a few things online.  And today, while I was running a few errands, I somehow managed to finish most of my shopping.  Score!  I still have a few people (and projects) to finish but I’m feeling much better about my gift giving this year.
