Holiday shopping nightmare
Yes, itís true. The holiday shopping season has arrived and I dread fighting the crowds.
Looking for a place to park at the mall is exhausting enough without having to crawl out of bed before the sun comes up to catch a great buy.
Every year I say that I will beat the mad rush and shop early, but I never do. I always wait until the last minute.
Now, donít get me wrong - I love to shop. Whether it be for myself or for friends and family.
I just want all the other shoppers to get out of my way. Let me get in and get out as quickly without a fight.
So, whatís my game plan for this year? Well letís just say that I have yet to purchase one gift. Not even a sweet red and white candy cane.
Iíve got my list and Iíve checked it twice, but I havenít crossed anything off of it yet.
I look at it this way, I have about two weeks left before my shopping adventure becomes lost cause.
And maybe, just maybe, Iíll catch a break this year.
Who knows, maybe every one else got a head start and Iíll walk up to the sales counters and there will be no long lines and no frantic shoppers.
Yeah, right. Only in a perfect world would that happen.
So to all my fellow last-minute shoppers, hope to see you at the finish line.
