        Can we say 3 weeks til Christmas, but only 3 more days of work? If so, then I agree.

    One of my coworkers emailed the rest of us yesterday saying he was leaving early to do some “early Christmas shopping” and I was really confused as to how a week before Christmas counts as early.

        Very true. Maybe he knew that before I knew that. Why did I go and buy all those presents already?!?

        Next year, everyone on our list is getting something from Door County… because we’re going there in April and I’ll want an excuse to shop and then I only have to buy one thing for each person for the year.

        Mmmmm, I LOVE everything in Door County. Adorable antiques, delicious cherry everything. We always went to “The Farm” (it’s like a pioneer/farming/etc learning place) when I was little and I got to see all the farm animals and give them tiny bottles of milk. Definitely bring one of those back.

      I’ve managed to only work one night at Kohls since Early November- it was miserable. Plus I was there till 12:30 at night!! Why do people need to shop until midnight!?

    I just went and bought those wire wrapped gem stone earrings for my best friend. Perfect! Now all I have left is my dad’s present, and I know what I’m going to get him, I just haven’t gone to buy it yet.

    P.S. I bought my boyfriend a mini cannon. Apparently it actually fires, using BBs and fireworks fuses? We’ll see how that goes, haha.

    I feel like I win DW because I’ve bought every single one of my Christmas gifts through DW amazon links (I swear I did it right – I hope) but ONE. I got my mom a fitbie because she’s randomly decided she’s into fitness, so I hope that’s not insulting. Also, I got her the to go wine sippy cups, because duh.

    Also, the head lady at the school I go to on a part time basis called me today to tell me that they have yanked my scholarship due to poor attendance and poor grades as an early Christmas present. She’s a doll.

    I basically just have my brother left. I was going to order the Walking Dead Compendium Vol 2 but it’s out of stock on Amazon. The other seller’s don’t guarantee that it will ship in time. Ugh. I have no idea what to get him. His wishlist this year was like a grappling hook and a gas mask….wtf.

    I am so far behind this year. I just haven’t been into it and have let it slide. Now my goal is to get my Christmas cards and letters to the post office by December 24. Ugh.

    I have decided that I am going to focus on Christmas 2014 instead. That means 372 days until Christmas! I can do it!

    So I was looking for a spice gift set on Amazon, because I thought it’d be a cool gift, & I came across a spice grinder in the shape of a revolver…magazine? I don’t think they’re called magazines when it’s for a revolver, I forget. My boyfriend’s gun knowledge has barely worn off at all on me. ANYWAY, so I’m like, “oh, nice! Fabello loves guns & also has been talking about wanting to grind spices for a while” ORDER. Then I’m reading the reviews… everyone’s like, “this is great for my ‘herbs’ 😉 Makes it come out real fluffy 😉 ” & I realize, oh FUCK. I just bought a fucking weed grinder.

    (I cancelled the order before it shipped, thank God, because Amazon is a little bitch about that)
