I just don't understand why some people will stay up all night to shop for Christmas gifts or wait outside all day and night to be first in line when the stores open on Black Friday. I just don't like crowds that much and the thought of possibly being crushed in the hopes of saving a few bucks does not interest me either. The older I get the more I want to enjoy my alone time. I am not a big fan of shopping malls either. Everything is so expensive now and the quality is crap but the prices are high. Maybe I am becoming Scrooge like but I watch so many (mainly women) get crazy at this time of year... they work all day and still feel the need to shop for the perfect gifts, decorate the house, cook for a million guests. I get exhausted just listening to them. This year I am giving the good old gift card that way the person gets to pick what they want... or maybe I will just give the gift everyone likes... cash. Either way I will be less bitchy by not buying into the Christmas hoopla and that's a gift everyone will enjoy!
Hope your day is fun and don't forget to laugh out loud!
xoxo Inge
