Insane in the membrane...


I must be insane in the brain...or something like it. I'm in need of a full frontal lobotomy tonight. "Why" you ask? Because I had a doctor's appointment this morning at 10:30, so I decided it would be today, 1 week exactly before Christmas, that I would take off & jam the remains of the Christmas shopping (which was just about ALL of it) into 1 freakin' day.


I did a few odd stops at stores along the way, but most of the shopping was done at the Palisades Center (a H-U-G-E mall about 15 minutes away from my house). Unfortunately, I think most of Westchester County & Rockland County was there, too, with the same thing in mind. I circled the parking lot like a vulture, following anybody coming out with packages, ready to swoop in & fight off anybody else trying to get into that spot. I parked so dang far away, I might as well have parked at home & hoofed it. Y'all would've laughed your butts off watching me struggle to the car at the end of the day with all of my packages & having people in cars follow me.


99.9999999% of the shopping is done (just 1 last easy present), it needs to be wrapped, & I'm exhausted. Next year I plan better...............

OMG! You live within 15 minutes of the Palisades mall?!?! I love that mall. It's HUGE. Plus there is a Legal Seafoods there. Yummo! This time of year, it's insane. Is Santa still there? I spaced and forgot to bring the boys to see Santa. I'm thinking we'll stop at Palisades on the way up to my parents house on the 23rd.

And I thought I was a nut case for venturing to the post office and grocery shopping this close to the big day. You are one brave woman! :-)

I wouldn't DARE go near a mall between Thanksgiving and maybe February! You are brave. I went to 4 stores yesterday plus a few other stops, was out for 6 hours and my feet had had ENOUGH! my shopping is also 99% finished. WHEW!

And, on the other hand, my Christmas cards aren't mailed. Whaaa.
