When will you start your Christmas shopping? Are you hitting the malls on black Friday or are you going to wait or have you already started?

Technically I guess we've already stared since DH picked up a DVD for his dad, but it was more of a we stubbled across it and decided to pick it up as a Christmas present. We will probably start really shopping this weekend.

My roommate is just about DONE with all her shopping. I hate people like that - they depress me. Not sure when i will start mine - I am more a last minute shopper.

We are almost completely done with ours! A couple weeks ago Penney's and Kohls had a HUGE sale and those are the only 2 stores (besides walmart) that I have credit cards at. Sooooo..........we hit it hard! We got somethign for almost everyone! The only people left to buy for are eachother, BIL and SIL, his stepmom and her 2 daughters and his employees. Suprisingly enough, he tells me this morning that he wants to hit Walmart at 5am on Friday. He NEVER wants to go shopping, let alone when it is a nut house and he wants to go get it done Friday cause of the sales. And we will be able to get everyone's except his brother and SIL and eachothers. So..........woohoo! (Now......where did I put those old football pads and helmet..............)


edit cause i cant spell my name!

We won't have the option to go shopping on Friday. His sister and her husband have whined us into spending time with them. The world stops when they're around. I hope I don't draw their names in the gift exchange.

How's that for a bah humbug?

We're drawing names, but no one is up on it, so no one knows who to buy for yet!!! It's driving me nuts because I don't have too much time out and about, plus, we were in the perfect place this weekend to buy unusual gifts!!! Anyway, my sister and I were planning to make gift baskets for everyone. I have to buy for everyone in my family, all the babies and kids, the parents, DH, my sister...sooooooo much money that I don't have. I hate that it's becoming so stressful!!! It's sort of depressing me and making me want to hide in a corner until it's all over!!! EEK! That's not like me at all! I adore the holidays!

Well, I'm almost done. We don't have black Friday, since our Thanksgiving is long gone. I did make the mistake of shopping on black Friday when I lived in the US, it took DH and I 2 hours to drive home (usually about a half hour trip), and this was after battling shoppers all day I shop all year round - if I see something, I buy it. Then, at the end of October, I go through the gift closet and see who I still need to buy things for.
