Do you trust weather forecasts? I think I do, maybe too much. Yesterday I thought about going shopping but it was cold and windy so I looked at the weather forecast for today and it was supposed to be a little warmer and sunny so I decided to wait until today. Well, today it’s colder and raining. Doh!
I seriously need to go grocery shopping and Christmas shopping. I haven’t done much Christmas shopping and I’m starting to feel some urgency and little bit of creeping panic over what to buy certain people. Number One Son is the easiest and most fun person to shop for that I know. I could go overboard if I let myself. Everyone else… I just don’t know. But I have to think of something soon.
I look forward to Christmas more for seeing other people open their gifts than for getting something myself. I suppose I’m hard to shop for. I don’t know why. I like a lot of different things. I always get something nice but never any of those things that would make perfect gifts because I would not likely buy them for myself because it would seem too self-indulgent. Things like knick-knacks (which I don’t have any place to display anyway) or art books. Things that are not practical.
Don’t take this wrong. I’m not really complaining. Giving really is the most fun. And I seriously need to hurry up and get started on having some fun so I don’t end up in Wal-mart at 6:00pm on December 24 buying something lame.
