One sign of a recession during Christmas is the distinct lack of Christmas cards.
I love to get Christmas cards and we have this holder thingy that's always overflowing each year and this year, we have very few.
Now, mind you I haven't sent Christmas cards out yet because I'm lazy and just ordered them about 6 days ago and they're not here yet, but dammit, I want your cards!
But, maybe people will be surprised by their "Happy December 28th!" cards?
Anyway, I need cards, I like to look at pictures and know how you're doing.
I even like those family Christmas letters.
One of the mixed blessings about the recession is that I was easily able to get around town and park on this Saturday before Christmas to do my errands that included a little bit of gift shopping.
I will admit, though that it was a bit creepy to see plenty of parking at Toys R Us.
OK, I got everywhere easily except for Walgreen's.
Seriously, people, what is it about Walgreen's?
I needed to pick up a prescription (Zyrtec for Busy Girl in case you're one of those people who goes through medicine cabinets looking for whatever it is you're looking for) and there was no parking, the aisles (not "isles" /grammar lesson) were full and the checkout took forever.
This is not Neiman-Marcus, folks. Just go to Target or the mall already
