Christmas Slacker

Dec 20, 2013

The good news?  I'm officially on vacation and don't go back to work until January 6th!!

The bad news? I have soooo much Christmas shopping left to do and I'm running out of time to do it. 

When people find out how behind I am on shopping, they always say, "Oh, do it all online!" Well, if you're as last minute as I am, that doesn't exactly work. That whole shipping in time for Christmas thing, I'm past all shipping deadlines. And this cheapskate isn't gonna pay $20+ just to have something shipped in a couple days. Am I right? 

I should have my gifts wrapped and enjoying my vacation starting now. Instead, I'm gonna be running around from store to store, fighting crowds and making all kinds of promises to do it differently next year. But the truth is, I'm such an indecisive person and procrastinator that I know things may never change! I can't even tell you how many times I saw something at Target or on Etsy over the past few months, that I thought so-and-so would like but I could never commit. And that's the kind of b.s. that gets me where I am today. (And to add to it, I desperately needed my bonus from work to help us out with our shopping and I didn't get it til 2 weeks ago.)

So there's my big old excuse. I suck at Christmas this year, per usual. Thankfully I at least put up decorations! I'll be posting pictures of that stuff soon - just as soon as I get in the last of my two stocking orders, because of course I waited til the last minute to get our stockings. At least you know what to expect of me ;)

Shopping with my girl the other night. At Walmart of all places.
Drinking all of the Christmas stress away at work this week.
Thanks, Fancy Ashley for the fancy last minute sparkle tree gift idea + sandwich idea!
My plan for today. Minus Trader Joe's actually, since I went last night.
Target's not listed but Target's always a given.
