I am OFFICIALLY done shopping.
Tomorrow I will be baking cookies and wrapping so that will be a fun day. Then this week I can just relax after work and look forward to the weekend.
Can I just say how busy the baking aisle was at the grocery store today?! Dang! People were nearly knocking each other over to get the granulated sugar.
So I went Christmas shopping with my Granddaughter the other day and believe me it's been awhile since I've had to shop with a kid seeing that mine would rather stay home and play playstation. So my step-daughter loads me up with a diaper bag, bottles and a leash.........a leash? WTH?? A LEASH! What am I walking a poodle? So the leash stays home along with the 8 other bags she has for me. Sorry, but I don't remember packing for a Florida trip just to go to the mall. I get to the mall and proceed to a baby store where they sell the harness contraptions that babies can sit in while you tote them around on your back like you're hiking Mt Everest. We go to this store, that store, have something to eat...blah, blah , blah, baby is getting tired. Into the backpack she goes, So I'm shopping for about 45 mins in total enjoyment, when I notice that my granddaughter is not with me, I am yelling her name, calling her, going into every store I think I went into, *panic starts*, I'm sweating, starting to get that lump in my throat, How the hell could I be like those people I complain about on the news. I call my wife at work, she starts yelling, crying, leaves for the mall. So I head to the Security office, walk in almost in tears and begin to explain to the security guard my situation, he's trying to calm me down as I have my cell phone in hand dialing my step-daughter's number, he again tries to calm me down as I hear him saying " sir, we found her, she's ok" , now crying, I asked him where he found her, was she cying?" he replied " No, she's asleep........and strapped to your back"........Merry Christmas to me.
In these times of Greatness, what is better than being a Bostonian? Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics (NO. 5anyone?) and I'll even give props to the Black N Gold!!!
That is too funny. I'm glad everything turned out okay as I'm sure that is a scary feeling.
