Cartoony us

Where's Juli Been?

The answer: every retail store imaginable.

Wayne did some contract work in October and didn't get paid for it until last week.  So all of our Christmas shopping was on hold until the check cleared.  We started shopping on Sunday night at 5:30 pm.  On Sunday we hit:  Michael's, TJ Maxx, Kohl's, Kmart, Target, Old Navy, Borders and Toys R Us.    TRU was open until 1 a.m.!  Can I tell you what a dream it was to be one of 5 shoppers in a toy store less than a week before Christmas?  I am doing it the same way next year, it was SO NICE.

Yesterday we left the house around 11 am and went to: a pool store (don't ask!), TJ Maxx, Walmart, Five Below, Sears, Sturgis Pretzels, Ollies, Kmart, Target and Barnes and Noble.  

We got home around 9 p.m., watched the football game and passed out.  Now everything is in piles on the living room floor and kitchen table.

Time to get wrapping.
