Sweating The Holiday Shopping
Posted 12/7/2010 10:52:00 AM

I've decided that it just wouldn't be Christmas without a little blood sweat and tears. Well, maybe just the sweat and tears part. But it never fails. I come up with the perfect gift idea, only to find that it's not in stock anymore or not the right color or not the right size. You know what I'm talking about, perhaps it's that sweater that you found just two days before, the one you should have bought when you first saw it. And now it's gone So now the hunt begins. You go to store after store looking for a replacement, maybe you decide to go online, order something else, and hope the gift will arrive in time. You worry, you stress. You want to just throw up your hands and say, “I give up”. But you don't because you are a holiday shopping warrior! You persevere, drive for miles, sift through rack after rack, bin after bin, shelf after shelf, web-page after web-page. And somehow, once Christmas arrives and everyone is gathered together, opening gifts, it all seems to work out just fine. But not without a little blood sweat and tears. There, I had to vent. I'm ready to go back out there now and finish the shopping. Thanks for listening.
