There are few things I hate more in the world than shopping and people (particularly the breed of people who happen to be in the stores). Awesome that we are in the prime time of the christmas shopping season, then right? Well, I was all wrapped up with it short of dragging the kids around and explaining to them why they should pick something other than the awesome WordWorld train for their mother.

So yeah, we all go out in the -30 windchill weather and catch a lucky break to not have to walk 2 football lengths into the wind with a flock of kids to the store and snag a prime parking location. My good fortune would pretty much end there for the trip.

I won’t go into the gory details with a play by play, but I’ll just tease with missing kids, a shit ton of people, and a glove lost from 2 different sets when it was all said and done. But I lived through it. I persevered and come out stronger (read more irritable) in the end.

To add to my frustration build up, last night we went out to finalize some food shopping at Sam’s Club so our guests this week will have all sorts of tasty viddles to munch upon. On some Friday afternoon reflection of my impending weekend activities, I made the observation that I would rather self administer a catheter to avoid the tasks set before me. After going through the ordeal, I still stand by that assessment.

Seriously. Some one our there come up with a service to fix this. Next year is only gonna come all to soon.

    I like As for Sams, you used to be able to order things for pick-up online if you had business account. Not sure if you still can.
