ok, i have stalled as long as i can.  i must venture out today and tomorrow.  while i don’t have much to spend, it is still my ‘job’ to fill the stockings.  personally, i think it’s the toughest job of all!  first to find fun little things.  and then – to wrap all those tiny pieces – for 7 people stockings – plus two dogs ^_^. ho ho ho  i am hoping that once i am out there and ‘in it’, i will get infected with some of the ‘spirit’.  so far have managed to stay in a form of denial about the whole thing.  most of that has to do with the major shortage of funds.  hate it when that happens!!

i’ll report in later.  wishing ya’ll successful shopping also.

love and beauty
