Hold up, wait a minute...

So, I went to the grocery store today, which was a fool's errand.  The weekend before Thanksgiving is a notorious hot mess in the grocery world.

I made my way down the aisles, and kept seeing all this Christmas stuff, and I felt completely panicky because I haven't done anything about Christmas.

And then I remembered... it's NOT EVEN THANKSGIVING YET.

I mean, Halloween hadn't even cleared out of the stores before they were playing carols in the stores, so... I can't say I'm especially surprised or anything.

But can't we just take it a little slower?  Enjoy one holiday at a time.

I will say, I have bought one little Christmas present - a standing little something I give Mom, Matt and Dad on a yearly basis.

But this week, I'm going to get my desk packed up at the office for our move, I'm going to finish up my freaking expenses, and then I'll head to Atlanta, enjoy some Alice's Restaurant.

Eat some turkey, watch a little crap TV, pet some pugs.

From there, I can start working on the "Most Wonderful Time of the Year".
