Well, wish me luck. Today is going to be my first day of Christmas shopping. And I am a-feared.
I've been trying to prepare myself mentally for the experience. I've been listening to Christmas music, eating lots of Christmas cookies, watching lots of Christmas movies and practicing meditation to put myself in a Zen mood. Ommmmmmm.
I find it's very important to keep a sense of humor while out there braving the Christmas madness. I came across this website on the Internet with lots of cute Christmas one liners. I thought I'd share them with you so you too can enjoy some Christmas humor.

And this poem is from me.
I'm off to shop at the mall,
To find the perfect gifts for all.
I'm armed in lots of Christmas cheer,
(No, I didn't have a beer!)
I'm wearing a pair of comfy shoes,
Don't want to cry the "Sore Feet Blues."
Now if I'm not here next Saturday,
You'll know the guys in white coats took me away.
So pray that I will not succumb,
To the dreaded Christmas Crazy Shopping Glum.
