So, I'm not allowed to go out shopping for more than 1-2 hours at a time, which is hardly enough time to do any actual shopping, so I've decided to utilize the interwebs and shop online.
First off, I can't find many small business vendors that I know I can trust--locally, I know who rocks, and who to avoid--and I wanted to avoid big business this year.
Second, EVERY time I sit down to shop, I get distracted on fb or com for at least 30 minutes each, then I'm burnt out on looking at the screen so I go get a snack, read a book, or do some other highly unproductive activity.
Third, I'm terrified of closing the checkout screen until the confirmation email is in my Inbox and they are taking FOREVER today to send them.....well, forever being 10-15 minutes, but still--It's a long time when you are ready to close a window.
Fourth, my husband is DONE. Not only finished shopping, but everything is gift wrapped and sitting under the tree. It annoys me because I haven't started and don't even know where to start with a couple of people....namely my parents, and sister. Why can't they be easy to shop for like John's family.
Fifth, There are a TON of gifts under the tree. I'm sure I don't want half of them and I dread the week after Christmas when I'm forced to figure out where to put it all in our microscopically small house (Love the house, hate the stuff)
Sixth.....I should be shopping, but I'm here typing a vent instead. Yay me.
