I’m ready for you, Christmas!
With only 4 days to spare, I am finally DONE with Christmas shopping and shipping of packages. Normally I don’t like to cut things so close, but it seems like the older kids get the busier they get and the more it takes away from my time to do things.
I’m really glad that we have a new shipping store that opened just blocks from us. While priced just slightly higher than the USPS, there are never any lines, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Today I sent off the last gifts to my family in Minnesota.
Thanks to help from the good ol’ interwebz, I got flowers delivered in Brisbane, Australia, where a friend is living for a year. Shipping to Australia is super expensive so I’m thankful for internet options!
I sort of bought my own Christmas present last week. We had purchased a Living Social deal to stay at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, CO, a few months ago. When I booked our room I upgraded to a haunted room. Not only a haunted room, but the MOST haunted room in the hotel. To say I am excited is an understatement! We have stayed here many times in the past but not yet had a paranormal encounter. If we don’t have one this time, I’m just not going to believe that the hotel is haunted.
This year my daughter isn’t receiving any toys for Christmas. Mean? Nah. This girl has enough toys to stock a toy store. She’s getting clothes and books, and Santa is bringing her a netbook. This means I might be able to use my iPad again. I’m not even sure I know how it works anymore.
Have you finished your holiday shopping and shipping? Find any good deals?
