Holiday blitzkrieg

I hit the mall like a bomb last night. I was a woman on a mission. I had a list, I'd checked it twice, and there was no way in hell I was leaving that packed, snowy parking lot until the shopping was done. The trick to holiday shopping is to hit hard and hit fast. Crate and Barrel -- check. Sears -- check. K*B Toys -- check. I could list every store I went to last night, but I don't want people on my gift list to get any ideas. (Jen, I don't know how to tell you this, but the factory burned down. I just couldn't get you that present. They don't make it anymore. I'm sorry.)

Suffice it to say, I left work, went shopping, and didn't return home until 10 p.m. last night. I was tired, I was hungry, but dammit, I was done. And then I remembered one other thing I have to buy....
