And so by early October, I'd already been booking and placing orders in US/foreign websites, thereby giving enough time for those items to be shipped before Christmas. Come November, I was halfway through that shopping list. Taking advantage of Black Friday and Thanksgiving deals, I shopped for the rest of those gift items during this period. By the time December kicked in, all the gifts that I'll be giving had already been wrapped and sitting under (more like beside) this Christmas tree.
Needless to say, I'm pretty much ready for the holidays. I hope you are, too.
