…is the bane of my existence.
…is the most anticipated and yet most dreaded, belabored day of my shopping life.
…is the reason my bank account is weeping.
…is one of the least efficient days to be bustling around busy malls.
…is the first day I find it acceptable to listen to Christmas carols.
…causes my blood pressure to rise higher with each store I visit (especially Target).
…does not excite me quite enough to wake up before the sun.
…makes me feel humbled by and grateful for all of the blessings in my life.
…causes me inexplicable stress, even though I have a meticulous Excel spreadsheet logging every item purchased and every penny spent.
…somehow excuses me from proper driving etiquette, granting me permission to lay on the horn for any reason.
…makes me wish Christmas were tomorrow — I absolutely love gift-giving!
…prepares me adequately for the next 30 days of frenzied holiday madness.
…is the day before my family and I pick out the most perfect Christmas tree (from a lot). When Ian and I first started dating, I told him that we go out into the wilderness every year and cut down a tree ourselves with a lumberjack saw. Oops 😉
…is one of my favorite days of the year!
