Must Be A Glutton For Punishment

Today, in a fit to get more Christmas shopping done, I gathered up both girls and headed to the city to Barnes & Noble. I’m not overly-optimistic – I knew one store with two kids was a limit, and that it would be straining at that limit anyway. Odds are good when you are outnumbered by kids that it won’t be the most pleasant shopping experience.

My parking spot was about a half mile from the store, and after carrying Pumpkin and holding The Princess’s hand so she didn’t slide on the icy parking lot, I was exhausted by the time we reached the door. Add to the mix chasing Pumpkin around the store while looking for a calendar for my dad – and oy.

Thirty minutes later we were done – all I bought was one gift card, and I’ll be darned if I couldn’t have just done that online.

But I no longer need to get on the treadmill today. I think my cardio needs have been met.
