Christmas shopping USED TO BE SUCH FUN! What the heck happened? Yes, I'm headed out into the fray today. There's not really all that much to do, but at my age (jeez, I say that all the time now - a senior citizen mantra - excuses all sins), yes, at my advanced age, 'the doing' takes that much longer to do. Especially on a cold winter day - the joints get creaky. Well, at least it's sunny. PLUS it's my granddaughter's First Christmas, so I really have plenty to smile about.
