So NOT a last minute person.

November 18th, 2008 at 10:30 am

Who was it lately that mentioned in their blog about the teacher/accountant mentality (of doing things methodically, well planned ahead)?

Add me to that group, though not a teacher nor accountant. It's just a Type A trait.

So my gift list is ready and awaiting...
Now I just need the time to tick things off. Drat the day job.

A page from my purse blank Journal

Shopping To Do:

-ToysRUs; Use $10 gift card for small boy item

-Best Buy; Investigate, compare and snag stereo system for husband's gift if the price is right especially if further coupons/deals are available

-Sports Store; purchase Heely's for daughter, pingpong paddles/balls for family gift

-Dollar Store; purchase 3 bath sponges for teacher gifts (already have goats milk handmade soap)

-LinensThings; Check current percent off due to store closing, if high enough and price is right, purchase one or two sets of full size sheets for new mattress at weekend home

Cannot do any of this Tues (work), Wed (volunteer at art gallery), Thurs/Fri/Sat (devote 90% of time to craft show I'm in).

So do you think I can do it all on Sunday? A perfect time as all the family will be away (except me) to the weekend property. MUST take advantage to hide the gifts then!

Tune in another day for the ... Next page in the Journal

    That was moi. LOL.

    Should I add engineers to the list?

    I have mine done early as well, but my rationale is mostly out of laziness. Hehe. I just don't like having to fight traffic, looking for parking spots from way out, and waiting in line to buy something later when I can do it now at the comfort of my pace.

    Hey, just wanted to let you know that that earrings arrived and M. Noelle LOVES them, she danced around for quite a while and we were in awe of how nice that green looked (like a little flash of color). You did a wonderful job, and to see her little face light up was worth it. I will get a picture of her in complete outfit and share with you. Thanks!
