Today Kyle and I went out shopping, in a real store instead of in the world wide web. We actually went to four stores over a span of almost five hours. We both held up fine! I was able to cross many names off of my list, so the day was a success.
My friend Lee and I have figured out a secret to shopping at Costco -- go together. The last two times I've gone, she and her son William have met us there. He and Kyle sit side by side in the cart and laugh and entertain themselves, allowing for a much easier shopping experience. She and I are able to talk and enjoy ourselves, even if we are dodging people and waiting in excessively long lines. Plus, I always shop better with someone else -- they help me decide to buy something or not buy something.
And if you're wondering if we are planning more coffee dates, the answer is no.
How is your Christmas shopping coming along?
