The acquisition of gifts for family and friends has begun in earnest.
This year, as well as every other year in recent memory, the people who are easy to shop for are very easy to shop for; the people who are hard to shop for are very hard to shop for.
Add in 2 December birthdays and an anniversary (ours), and gift giving can become downright stressful.
I'm about 75% finished with my shopping. It's just those tricky, hard to buy for people that are throwing me for a loop.
Online shopping has been my friend this year, and many of my gifts have come delivered by the happy brown truck. Last week, I averaged 2 packages a day. I've placed several more orders, so I'm expecting next week will be busy as well.
I was very surprised an happy to receive a chocolatey package from my friend Jen yesterday. She was extolling the virtues of Vosges bars, and I may have said that I would cut a bitch for one of their bars. She sent three:)
Next up: Christmas cards. I am falling behind this year!
