    3 days til Christmas!

    So, I'm sitting here watching Maury..why, I don't know.  Well, yeah, I do.  Because I accidentally missed the "4" in "34" when trying to switch to CNN, and it landed on "3" instead and I didn't feel like changing it.  Anyway, Maury is pretty good for when you feel like watching something that requires no intelligence, and when you want to know "Who IS this baby's father?"  A far cry from the CNN I was really intending to watch!

    Anyway, my shopping is done today!  Yeah, 3 days from Christmas.  Normally I'd have it all done before now, but I've been feeling pretty reclusive and have been dreading the crowds.  I don't know when exactly this started, but I hate going anywhere with a lot of people now.  My stepmom used to talk about how AWFUL going to the mall is, and how HORRIBLE Walmart is, and I never understood what the big deal was.  Now, I do.  I just feel so overwhelmed and stressed when I'm forced to be in a place with more than 20 people at once.  It makes me all grouchy and mean and like "Agh!  Hurry up!  Do we really need more of those?  It's time to get out of here NOW!"  Luckily, Brett understands and doesn't take offense when I start acting grumpy with him and yelling at him to HURRY UP AND GET ME THE HELL OUT OF HERE.

    Yesterday we were in Target and Brett was standing in the middle of the aisle, simultaneously blocking both me and an elderly couple from passing in opposite directions. 

    Me: Brett, you are going to have move
    Brett (moving out of the way, corrects my impolite demand): Please
    Old woman: *busts out laughing*

    She totally ruined my bad mood and made me laugh at how ridiculous I was being.

    I had only one present left for Brett, and one for my dad.  The thing for Brett...I swear, I must have driven all over town for that thing.  I went into another nearby TOWN to find it.  Then, when I got back into town I realized that there was one store that I forgot about (when I went there a few days ago, they were closed, so I forgot after that), and you know what?  THEY HAD IT.  This store is like...6 blocks from my house.  Feh.  

    But, it's all over now.  And my mood has improved dramatically as a result, and I can now watch Christmas specials and hear the jolly music without wanting to tear my hair out!
