It's 6:20am....Heading to the stores

I never thought I'd be going to shop so early. But, I have been awake since 5:15. The strange thing? I'm exhausted! My FT job has been busy busy, as always, and I'm not complaining because I really do like going to work and wish I had more time to spend there. I guess my boss recognized since I was promoted this week - although being who I am, and knowing how much I do NOT get done, I feel it isn't deserved. But, I count my blessing given the current state of the economy.

So - WHY am I up so early and heading out? Last weekend when I thought I'd get alot done, found me holed-up in the house with a cold. The weather turned bitter, so I felt it was OK to stay in - "I can shop next weekend". I also didn't bake because I didn't think the neighbors or my family would appreciate me passing out cookies made with a constantly running nose. I know - EEWWWWW. Which brings me to yesterday, when husband announed, 'did you know we're supposed to have a blizzard on Saturday into Sunday? Up to a foot of snow?'

Uh, NO I didn't not - because I've been a zombie this week getting home late and up extra early for work, and not paying attention to the news. Therefore, I'm going to be one of those crazy people heading to the stores at ungodly hours to make sure there are gifts for all - well, at least the kid and nieces and nephews.

Wish me luck!
