Christmas shopping

Yay! The husband and I got it all done this morning — we were pretty desperate and everything looked good. At least, we insisted they were good. Like whosis when he/she created the world.

30:30 update:

Still there... though a lot of times I've considered dropping out and taking a nice looooooooong holiday. But, as the husband would say, I am perennially on vacation.
