Over the past few weeks I was able to pick up some hours at work. It was so hectic that I hardly got online at all because of how exhausting it has been. One thing I dislike about working retail is working around the holidays. Alas I smiled my way through it all and am expecting a nice paycheck this week because of it all. Once that paycheck comes then I'll be Christmas shopping for myself which will be loads of fun because I have a few things at work that I want to buy. The only thing under the tree for me was a tin of popcorn and a candle from my sister. Mind you that didn't bother me at all, because as the others had gifts then I was good.

I received nothing but a nice card from the kids and a wonderful meal. The neighbor brought us over some goodies. It will be fun for you to shop for you. Enjoy!

I always have more fun shopping for myself than for other people. It's just easier that way.

Wow, you were very busy with work! I hope you get lots of shopping done for yourself! That's okay. As long as you are content with your gifts, that's all that matters. Have fun!

I was fine with what I received. Christmas really isn't fun unless the whole family is together. Right now we're all spread out so it has lost a bit of it's magick.

My husband and I go shopping after Christmas each year and get what we wanted from the clearance sections.

That's what I do too. I love it and find that I get what I want without having to return anything.

It will be more pleasant to shop when the crowds have gone. I'd love to go shopping in New York

Must be tough working around the holidays, but maybe you're used to it. You definitely deserve that me-time shopping, have fun!
