Getting into the holiday swing has been slow coming this year. Normally, I’m mailing out my Christmas cards the weekend following Thanksgiving. This year, I never even purchased the cards. Likewise, I’ve received only one card – from BoBo’s ex-girlfriends’ Mother. She was the only one. At this rate, we will be sending out Happy New Year cards instead.
The holiday gala is slowly taking effect. We toured the neighborhoods on Wednesday (by foot) and Thursday night (by car). There are some houses that have gone ALL OUT in dressing up their homes.
Then this morning, YaYa and I rocked out to Bruce Springstein singing Merry Christmas Baby playing on the local radio station. They plays all Christmas music this time of year. As I made my way to work, Alvin and the Chipmunks really brought it home for me.
With that bit of holiday cheer, I slipped out at lunch today to get my Christmas shopping started. Yes, I will have another day without running. I have to put my chores ahead of my running for a while. It’s not like I have any races on my calendar so what does it matter. Anyhow, I got it started. Now I just need to pick up the momentum. Time is running out. Let the shopping begin.
