Retail Shopping....

Oh My Gosh....
I must have walked a hundred miles...yesterday afternoon...my feet...knees... and every joint of my body hurt! { I can go twice as far...load trucks....unload...concrete.....and not feel this miserable...oh my...}
I had sooo many things to get done, and Folks to see... in the Morn..
Bud popped over around Noon.......he was picking some things up...and he brought some sweets...that we tore into....while we visited... I ran across town... twice...
Got to see Peg...and Mike...and meet their Granddaughter, Delaney....{very Sweet!}Went to see Amy N., and Gail....to wish them a Merry Christmas...Gail and I had a Great Lunch.... all wonderful! I wanted Peg to come along....shopping...and seeing the girls.......but she was pretty worn out....so....I'll see her on Monday...
Delivered gifts...to friends...and got caught up in the insanity of 'Retail Shopping'.... oh my gosh....It was Great...seeing so much activity.... but...when strangers are warning you to drive safe... in the Holiday Traffic...ya know...it might be a bit....hairy....
The Clerks were all great...and I know...they are exhausted...mentally....and physically....I stood in line at several places...and listened to customer's grievances... oh my... but...I also heard people...laughing...and having Fun! and...that was great....
I got home... late... and...decided...it definitely was a Martini night...put my feet up.... and after having 2...I couldn't get up.... no supper... just to bed...they hit me like a Mack Truck....they went Straight to my Head....I feel the Entire Day... Everywhere...today....I'm on the Wagon....
John is heading out to visit Family....I'm wrapping gifts...
I couldn't find the pants...I wanted to get Mom...and...I had a very hard time finding things..for the kids.... I'm so far out of the loop....on what's in...and out...I had to ask Liz three times...."what was the name of that thing again...where do I go...for it...} I was in constant contact with her.... almost...{ I accidentally hit my 'ear wig'... button, in  my pocket...for my hands free devise....so I kept calling her....but I couldn't hear it ringing on her end....I walked to different locations... had plenty of bars....then...I figured out what had happened....} I called her, when I turned the devise off....and asked her if I had just driven her Crazy!...She said, "Yeah.... I was yelling into the phone...hoping you could hear me....then...you'd hang up...grrrr....then...I thought....what if you were being robbed...or abducted?.... and were trying to reach me....I felt bad about getting mad..." {ahhh...those 'Mother' instincts....have found Liz!}
The good thing is...there were lot's of Great Sales going on.... That helped my budget....
I'm still...wiped out....thought about going back out...and getting a few more little things...but...I think I'm calling it Quits... and Good!
Still haven't taken images... I truly have been running Hard..... When I went to Peg's, just as I was starting out...on the shopping day... she stood in the door...looking at me...and said, "You look totally befuddled".... ahhhh...yeah...I was....in a nut shell...
Retail Shopping...oh my...
Love to Ya!
Happy Christmas Eve!
