are you ready?

You know it's early November when all of the shopping centers put up their outside holiday lights.
Guess they have to though; after all, Santa arrived at Montgomery Mall Friday evening.
Now kiddies can start lining up and begging for all those high-priced items they simply MUST have.
And parents can start to feel guilty.
Really, though, the white lights do help pierce the gloom of the long nights, and that does help in some respects.
But certain people around the office are already talking about wrapping their Christmas presents.
I haven't even thought about buying any yet.
I think this year I'll just skip it... of course I threaten that every year.
Eggnog anyone?

I found a simple solution to stopping the "I wants"... don't take the kids to the mall this time of year. Children are much happier when they think they already have everything. We have gone from monstrous Christmas lists to almost nothing.
