I have no more shopping stamina...

Where did it all go? I used to be able to shop all day and still keep going. What happened?!

Today was my marathon shopping day for Christmas. Even after my work Christmas party the night before, I still managed to get up at 7 a.m. and go shopping. I hit Walmart first and somehow managed to buy everything I needed for the boys in one location! Except for two things, I somehow managed to buy all their Santa gifts in one location! Rock On...

I typically hate Walmart, but today it came as a blessing!

Of course, I still managed to visit another 10 stores and even managed to walk out of the mall without anything...I is that possible?! Of course, when I told Brent, he said "Isn't that what your supposed to do?" Clearly, he doesn't get it. Not many times have I ever walked out of the mall without anything! It used to be that I could go to the mall and just leisurely window-shop. Not anymore. Now with children, when I go to the mall, I'm on a mission to get something. I don't have time to leisurely window shop anymore.

Well, at least the boys are taken care, what do I get Brent? More difficult to figure out!

By 5 p.m. I was wiped out. No more energy. Had to go home. Somehow managed to only be able to sit on the couch and I believe I was in bed at 7 p.m. Brent put the boys to bed. I ask again...what happened to my shopping stamina?

Beautifully Blessed and Truly Thankful to be able to give my children the things they want!

PS...I figured out what happened to my shopping's called "Peyton and Palmer."
