We are the Champions...

The husband and I completed 95% of our Christmas shopping in six hours on Saturday. It was a bit of self inflicted torture; we knew the stores and the oh-so-beautiful North Park Center would be slammed with Christmas shoppers, but we didn't have a choice. This was the last chance we'd have to shop before Christmas- we're busy people.

We had a list. We had a purpose. We attacked the list together as a team. We don't like shopping. We like buying. We like staying in budget. We felt like champions when we crossed off the last item on our list. We got home and I took the ten-key to the pile of receipt and then we felt poor.

It was an exciting six hours.
