Holy Cow

It's already December 8th and I only have a fraction of my Christmas shopping completed. I can't seem to get myself in gear to do it. I usually have it the big stuff done by the end of October to mid November. I'll get random things here and there after that, but it's mostly done by then. It looks like I'll be out in the thick of it this year. This week, this week, this week, I WILL get it done.

Speaking of it being December 8th and behind on Christmas stuff, I still haven't put up my tree. I wanted to do it about 3 weeks ago, didn't get around to it, and now I'm way far behind. I'm a loser.

*******************************************

I realized yesterday that my eye has finally stopped twitching. It did it for 5 solid weeks, multiple times a day, all day long. I think it finally stopped just short of a week ago. I can't believe it took me until yesterday to take notice of it. Anyway, it's a relief that it stopped.

********************************************

I bought Avery a watercolor picture in Disneyland that spells out her name. The "A" is The Little Mermaid, Ariel and Flounder. You know, "A" for Ariel because she's her favorite princess and their name starts with the same letter. Get it? I guess you'd have to see it.

I didn't have it framed there because I didn't want to have to worry about it possibly breaking on the way home. So, I took it to a Michael's today because they're currently having a 60% off custom framing sale. I figured now would be the perfect time.

I picked out a simple white frame and also decided to double mat it with a green and white mat. The sales associate totaled it up and said, "Okay, that will be $106.00." What!? "No way," said I. "I only paid $20 for the picture. I'm not paying 5 times that for the frame." Are you kidding? $106 was the 60% off price. Ridiculous.

The associate picked out an already made frame that was 50% off and found mats in stock that could be cut to fit in house and at 50% off also. Total for that: $30.00. Much, much better.

a hundred bucks for a frame? RIDICULOUS!

I forgot to mention that the picture itself is only about 6 in. x 6 in. It's pretty tiny and that makes the price even more ridiculous.

I would check Ikea. They have a ton of different size and shaped frames.

Framing is so ridiculous. I'm glad you found something that would work!

Good luck getting all of your Christmas stuff done.

Holy cow, I can't believe that anyone would actually pay that much for a frame!!!

And I'm SO with you on not being ready for Christmas. I have ordered a ton of gifts online, but I still have a lot I need to get. Our Christmas tree has been up for weeks though, the kids talked us into putting it up before Thanksgiving, lol.

I've had a twitchy eye for like 10 days now. Hmmm I wonder if it has anything to do with Christmas and the stress of it all. It happens at random times of the day for a few minutes or even a moment or two. So frustrating. I want to shoot my eye out.
