I always thought this was admirable, but knew that if I started that early, I would just never stop, and thus end up completely spoiling my child and spending far too much.
This year is a different story. I am pregnant and scheduled to deliver right around Christmas which means one of several things: I could end up going early (fingers crossed), but then will be overwhelmed by a newborn and won't have to time to take care of Christmas lists, or I will be so pregnant I will just want to stay home, drink hot cocoa, and watch made for tv Christmas movies (my ultimate holiday indulgence). It just doesn't sound that fun to chase JJ around Target or the mall with swollen ankles, an aching back, and long lines.
Therefore, I have now done about 80% of my Christmas shopping. The items that need to be shipped are ready to go (or on their way). I feel like a freak though driving from place to place listening to Christmas music (to help get me in the mood) with a trunk load of gifts. Also, I just feel like I am a kid waiting for Christmas and feeling like it is FOREVER away.. because it pretty much is.
Am I crazy, or have any of you started your shopping??
Also.. GO UTES. I am not a huge football fan, but that TCU vs Utah game last night was so exciting! I am glad that the stress didn't put me into labor!
