I actually did something halfway resembling christmas shopping today after work. Okay, so it was just the “going to the bookstore” phase of my shopping, but I did manage to pick up a few gifts. We’ve cut back on how much gifting we do for the grown kids in the family–mostly because there are a LOT of grown kids, and we were going totally frickin’ broke, so now the grownups get a book and a nominal gift card. We do get more substantial gifts for all of the younger kids, but with five grandkids that gets to be a lot as well! Tomorrow I’m going to have to bite the bullet and dive into Target to hopefully get the bulk of the shopping finished up.

Anyway, it’s going to be a weenie entry again tonight, because–once again–it’s late, and my stomach is still bugging me. Sigh. I’ll try and deliver something more substantial tomorrow.
