With only 15 days left until the Big Day, I've noticed Maureen has now entered "Official Panic Mode".
Yes, the dreaded OPM. For you see, she still has a few things to pick up.
One major gift bought online hasn't arrived through the mail yet.
None of her cards are made or mailed.
She hasn't started baking. No shortbread. No mincemeat.
She has to clean house and shampoo the carpet.
Oh, yeah, and the wrapping... oh, the Wrapping!
But I have done my part. A few days ago I helped her fight against OPM with OPS for OCD'ers. (Overdrive Power Shopping for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder-ers).
In keeping with tradition, we HAD to start with brekkie at Starbucks.
Why hey there.... come here often?
Hmphfff. Must be shy, hiding behind that cardboard tag.
After fueling up on a venti Peppermint Twist and Cranberry Bliss bar, we began our
hunting, er shopping in earnest. I loved the decor section, but she refused to get me my own little tree, sparkly garland, or
any of these cute ornaments that come in just my size!
Well, the LEAST she could have done was buy me a sled. This one was perfect. It even came with it's own Penguin to pull me around.
But noooo.... she was only interested in buying PEOPLE gifts.
Good thing I found Santa. Maybe HE'LL bring me a sled for Christmas.
