Who's finished shopping for presents?
I just completed my quest. We are Jews and Hanukah starts tonight...however, we won't be exchanging gifts until next Tuesday, when my older girl gets home from Brandeis. We do it in one big clump rather than dib and drab it out for days. Her birthday is December 25, so I have to get her twice as much stuff. I am a sewer (the needle and thread kind , NOT the waste management type!) and I usually make a bunch of stuff for her, but this year I just made two things.
Now on to the wrapping! I actually enjoy that. I got great paper at Target, and I'm going to decorate them with home-made stickers. Everyone's gone 'til Sunday, so I can take my time and spread out.

2. Don't hate me, but
I have all my shopping done. I wrapped everything today. All my cards are mailed. All the decorating is completed. All I have to do now is sit back and watch everyone else rush around.

Not makin' fun of you, PennyK. Laughing at my own self. I've bought one present. One. And if I don't get a check I'm expecting, that will be the ONLY one I buy.

6. I've been done since last year.
Of course, that's because I don't buy anything.

7. I'm damn close.
Just two gifts left to buy, and I think they're both going to be gift certificates to a book store. Easy enough to wrap up (gawd, I kill myself) this weekend.

8. I have only shopped for one person, my Grandmother...
three weeks ago, I got everything she needed and then two weeks ago, she passed away.

I don't feel like shopping anymore. :-(

10. So sorry, Trudy
Was she in good health? Man, this is the worst time of year for something so sad to happen. Everyone around you is partying, and you just look at them...
