I really do not rush on my Christmas shopping so when I see something that I like as a gift for somebody, I buy it and put it in a big box at the basement. I have a long list; sometimes it takes months before I finish buying them but the last one should be bought by Thanksgiving weekend. Why? Because, as it gets closer to Christmas, the shopping malls get crazy and I am trying to avoid being in those places at all. Also, the December weekends are reserved in preparation for my daughter’s birthday which is a week before Christmas and the Christmas Eve dinner.
I really thought I was done with my shopping then I received an email of orders from my brothers and cousins in the Philippines this morning. They want clothes, shoes, purses and 2 sets of scrubs for my cousins who are in the medical school. Somebody is going home to Manila this weekend and they want all these stuffs sent through her this Sunday. In as much as I do not want to be in any malls these days, I have to now. I know of some malls that stay open until midnight that I can go late tomorrow to avoid the crowd (I hope) then I have to order the rest from http://www.blueskyscrubs.com/ . I am sure they do next day shipping to receive them by Saturday. Hubby is volunteering to babysit tomorrow night for me to go shopping. These are for people so dear to me and I cannot really disappoint them besides it is Christmas time so I have to make things happen. I miss being with them during Christmas.
