I have been completely slacking on the blog posts guys and I’m sorry. I always have a reason even it’s just being plum lazy : ) But that’s not the case this time.
Following Black Friday I was in a lot of pain. My right hand had arthritis cramps from pulling that table through the store. My thumb was overworked with the cell phone. And by Monday or Tuesday night I was in full on back pain. I’m talking about crying trying to get out of the car it hurts so bad, kind of pain. It’s taken the rest of the week to get back to normal although, I wouldn’t call it normal, I’d call it cautious. I am very much aware of every movement I am making.
The Holiday Shopping Season is full blown and even though I have a lot of items crossed off my list, I am still a bit overwhelmed. I think it just comes with the territory. You can be prepared or not and I think we all feel a bit overwhelmed in one way or the other. I am trying not to stress. I have decided as of today that I will do very little in-store shopping at this point. Especially on weekends. Traffic is crazy both on the roads and in the stores. After witnessing tons of near-accidents today, I am giving up! Lol Online shopping it is for me.
I do have to stop in store sometimes…like for taking advantage of great Cartwheel app offers like this one I scored earlier this week. I have no problems shopping before work during the week : )
But with the convenience of online shopping, I find that is my preferred method for most things. I never shop without a coupon code, Ebates and I try to get free shipping about 90% of the time.
I had plans of posting a few gift guides but honestly, the closer it gets to Christmas, the more frazzled I get, even if I’m prepared. Work is sucking me dry. So is the life of a working mom who blogs as a pastime. You understand, I know and I’m thankful.
