I was at the store today. As I'm checking out the cashier in an attempt to be friendly asks me the question "Are you ready for Christmas?" I told her I was almost ready... and we left it at that. As I was driving home, unloading my purchases, and putting them away I continued to think about that question. Am I ready for christmas? I feel like I never am fully ready for christmas. Even when I plan ahead and shop ahead, I'm always thinking of this or that little item or stocking stuffer that I should still pick up and add to the pile of stuff that we've purchased. I wonder how much more money I spend each year with the "just one more item" purchases I make after the planned purchases are made.
Coincidentally, I got to the car outside of the store and remembered at least 5 items I didn't buy that I'll need for Christmas dinner... oh well... I've still got two more days to pick them up... if I can only remember them! :)
