It occurred to me the other day that I have no idea where I will be before Christmas. I could be living in Milwaukee. I could still be in Anderson. I could even be in the middle of moving. The more I thought about it, I realized it would be very smart to get a majority of my Christmas shopping done before Thanksgiving. Then I could leave the gifts at my mother’s house and not have to worry about them.
Our realtor scheduled an open house for this afternoon. Perfect! I went to church in Greenville (at Summit), made a quick stop at the Haywood mall, and then spent the rest of the day at the Gaffney Outlets. I have one or two people left, but the majority is done!
I have decided to leave all of the presents in my backseat until I can get them wrapped (hopefully this week). Then I don’t have to create a random pile of stuff in my house. It’s amazing how much better I feel and how excited I am about Christmas.
