I Beat Procrastination

Okay, not really.
But seriously
 We won't talk about the fact that I've gained 11 pounds, or the fact that I've squeezed my ass into skinny jeans I have no business wearing or that today is not technically a jeans day at work. Jeans week starts tomorrow, apparently. Thanks HR.

Nope, today I am enjoying the fact that for the first Christmas in a long time, I am not stressing about what to buy everyone at the last minute. Except for a few stocking stuffers I need to pick up, I have everyone's presents purchased and wrapped. Woohoo! I would love to say that I got all crafty and fancy with the gifts, but no. Just plain wrapping paper and a sticky name tag.


 We did venture out of the house on Saturday to brave the craziness to get the batteries replaced in our watches (they had only died 5 months ago) and to hit up the grocery store. We had thoughts of making some Christmas cookies and candy, but that didn't happen. A nasty storm blew in after we got home so I just hunkered down in front of the TV and had myself a little Harry Potter movie marathon. I made it through 7 movies, but didn't get to the very last one because SOMEONE thought I was hogging the television. Hater.

I actually ordered Christmas cards through the Walgreen's website yesterday and will be picking them up today. Yes, I realize that Christmas is two days away, but this is a huge accomplishment for me! I figure as long as you get the card the week of Christmas, it still counts. It counts.

It is a balmy 10 degrees here today in KC, but at least the roads are clear. Despite getting snow and ice every single year, there are still morons out there who act like it is the first time they've ever seen snow. You either get the ultra cautious driver or the idiot who thinks he's invincible and ends up in a ditch. Natural selection works.

Hope everyone else is doing well this week and that you don't get trampled by crazy shoppers. Amazon Prime is my new BFF.
