I tried to write a blog post while at work today, but all I seemed to want to write about was how this is a three-day work week and how happy I was about that. However, I think I touch on that subject every year during Thanksgiving week. Well, just for something different from Monstrous Monday, I thought I could use this space to ponder my Christmas shopping choices this year.
Um, yes, that means I have not purchased all the Christmas gifts I intend to give this year. Some years (oh, all right most years), I am a last minute kind of gal. I MAY have picked up one or two things along the way, but I can’t say anything about those IF they in fact exist. I don’t know who all reads my blog. One of the prospective gift recipients may tune in. Already I’ve said too much.
Now that I think of it, I don’t think I should talk about where I intend to shop either. People might guess what I’m going to get them. Worse yet, they may guess wrong that it’s something better than what I actually buy. I would hate to disappoint anybody. Oh, this gift giving season is fraught with peril!
I think it would be a better idea to wait till AFTER Christmas and tell my readers what I DID buy, after people have unwrapped their things. Hopefully I will get around to buying them, but let’s not catastrophize, shall we? In the meantime, I need a blog post TODAY. Maybe I should have gone with a Monstrous Monday after all.
You know, I am over 250 words. I’m going to call this a Monday Mental Meanderings and drive on. Happy Monday, everyone!
