Yesterday, hubby and I Christmas shopped for the boys. We had wanted to go during the week, but it never worked into our schedules. So we hit the stores early Saturday morning. Despite the slower than molasses in January checkouts, the crowds of people, and bratty kids….we had a good time.
I did get a near over powering craving for a cigarette between Sears and Hibbets Sports. After 3 and 1/2 years of quitting smoking, one would think the cravings should go away……..nope, at least not for me.
We were able to get everything on our Christmas present list we were looking for with the exception of 2 items.
I am still looking for a John Deere Mighty Trike Tricycle . I did not want to order one online but it looks like I am going to by tomorrow night if hubby doesnt locate one in Tulsa.
The only other present I need is a PSP Sony game for son#1. I am not sure which game he is wanting. I already bought him Madden 07, he was wanting NCAA (I think) but there are soooo many kinds of sports games, I want to be sure I get the right one. I have to find a way for him to tell me without giving it away that he is getting a loaded PSP for Christmas.
When we shopped at Wal-Mart, I bet I saw at least 15 people I knew. And, each and every one of them wanted to stop and visit-ack! Finally, hubby and 2 of his buddies ended up standing around and visiting in the car parts aisle. I finished our shopping.
Son #1 spent last night at his best friend’s house. After Wee One went to sleep, hubby and I got busy wrapping everything we could. It feels great knowing that chore is done.
