Gotta head out to the war zone today

If anyone out there has ever gone to any store on Christmas Eve, you will know it's a war zone out there with the last minute shoppers, and the road out for those drivers in a hurry to get to the store for that last minute deal.

So yes, I get to do that today, head out to the store. Not for last minute Christmas shopping, got that done a week ago. Nope, got to go out and get some dog food for the dogs. Was hoping it would stretch out for a few more days, but, we're experiencing a bit of a cold snap here, which has them eating more, which means their food goes down faster. So...going to have to brave the roads and the crowds out there. Believe me, doesn't matter if it's a grocery store or a pet store, those last minute shoppers are everywhere. And some of them are downright scary! And then there are the pushy ones, and then the ones who make ya feel like..

I can remember Christmas as a kid. It wasn't about getting the latest, expensive thing. It was about family getting together and having fun. My sisters, cousins, and I, we would be outside later in the day playing in the snow with the new toys while our parents were in the house preparing dinner. I watch today, and I'm seeing people proclaiming how "bad" Christmas will be because they didn't have $600 to spend on gifts. wtf? Really? I mean, don't get me wrong, if I had that kind of money to spend on gifts for Christmas, I would. But it wouldn't be the end of the world if I didn't. I've managed to do Christmas shopping for 8 people on only $150, and find nice things for them.

This year, Christmas is not so festive, but my family and I will be together. We will make it special.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, or Happy Yule to everyone. Enjoy being with your loved ones.

Just got back from Walmart. The place was busy, but not like it has been leading up to Christmas like I've seen for the past week.

I'll soon be heading out to spend Christmas eve dinner and opening packages with family here in a bit.

Merry Christmas, Dawn!
