When the Going Gets Tough....



Ladies and Gentlemen....are you ready?


            I'm trying to prepare.


                                              
                                                




I will probably wear some camouflage.

I'll even paint under my eyes like those football players do

I'm an expert at bobbing and weavin'

When I have to I can run like the wind.....

And I think I can handle my own with an adversary.

  I have been practicing the art of distraction and will definitely practice the tag team strategy

Yep, I'm ready for battle

On Thursday I'll begin my Christmas shopping with my Sister-in-Law

And you know what they say...When the going gets tough...one will pretend to fall and sprain her ankle to distract shoppers while the other buys the last faux cashmere sweater that's 50% off!


Aww who am I kidding...chances are we will give up within the first ten minutes, sit at Starbucks and have coffee and a giant cookie.

    We got a lot of ours accomplished this past weekend. I'd love to believe we won't have to go back out for anything... we'll see. ;-)

  2. That is funny, so you are kind of like tag team shoppers! Why not wait till Black Friday? Oh, but this year, I think black Friday starts Thursday night! It gets earlier every year! Now I will be thinking about Private Benjamin all night, I loved that movie!!!

  5. The stores are already getting crazy. We finished up two weeks ago. I hate crowds and I firmly believe in staying out of the stores (except for groceries of course) until after Christmas now. Too many germs. I want to stay healthy for the big day.

  6. That was funny. Thank you for making me smile. I have all of my shopping done and wrapped all except for two birthdays, one on Dec 23 and the other Dec 24 which I will give money too.

    Have fun!!

  8. That guy is really good at distraction.

    Good luck with your shopping. I NEVER go out in the crowds if I can help it. It makes me grumpy.

  11. I used to love to shop but more and more I try and shop on line to avoid going to the mall. Starbucks and a cookie sounds wonderful.

  15. Oh I don't envy you girl. I always shop during the week and just have such a fun time. Last weekend my sister was up and we went shopping quite a bit. Holy Moly, everywhere was packed. Now I know why I shop during the week. I use to love to shop the day after Thanksgiving. Now this old lady just decorates. Decided that there is nothing I need that bad. Have fun and - CHARGE! Loved all of the pics! Too cute!!
