Tuesday Open Thread

November 13, 2012

It’s Tuesday! And today I realized DD has four days of school this week and then . . . Thanksgiving vacation next week. The holidays are here! How the f*ck did that happen?

So I wrote out a gift list last night and will slowly get to shopping. I already ordered about half our Xmas cards, because I had to take advantage of crazy good early bird discounts. And other than that, I’ve done nothing to prepare. I have had a couple of friends announce on facebook that they are completely done with their holiday shopping. Who are these people?  😐

To get you into the spirit, here’s a cute little ad from a British store. I was ready to watch and be annoyed but found myself relating to it. I must admit that I bear a strong resemblance to this woman during the holidays. It’s exhausting, but I love it.

How do you approach the holidays? Are you “All In” like Petraeus, or do you take a more laissez-fare approach?

And how about that Petraeus, eh? Yowza.

What else is on your mind today? Chat away!
