Black Friday? I prefer Pink Saturday!


Dear Helen Hartman,
Black Friday is winding down and I keep hearing stories of people who have finished shopping for the whole family already while I have many more days of scouring stores ahead of me. Love to know if YOU have your Christmas shopping done for everyone on your list yet?

DONE? Loved One, Helen hasn’t even finished picking fights with all the people she wants OFF her list yet!

Jingle, jingle little tree, if I spend less on you, there’s more for me!  

 
Happy Pink Saturday to all and to all a "Good night! I'll never get all this decorating done!" 

Just a few of the things I need to get put up, then there is the Christmas village, the outdoors and the tree... oh, dear... THE TREE!

  1. Helen, I like your humor. Or maybe you weren't kidding about rubbing out your Christmas list..COL.

    Either way, I hope you get it all done.

    Happy PS,
    Marianne

  2. I love the fight-picking idea. Wonder why I hadn't thought of that before? I'm off to brainstorm some ways to start a few knockdown-dragouts, as my grandmother used to call them. I'll whittle down my list in no time flat.

By the way...don't know if you've had a chance to look at some of my post but...me and my shotgun can reek-havoc on my hubster's backside ever-now and then...I just hope he don't make me act up before the Holiday...LOL! Hope you get it all taken care of! Hugs

  7. Stop, sit down, and relax. Maybe you have too much going at once. Take one thing at a time. You will do fine.

  8. Marianne - of course I'm kidding... I actually bought really awful gifts for everyone last year so they don't WANT to exchange with me this year ;)

  9. Go Dana Go - I find remarks about hair dos(you're so thrify to cut your hair at home, and with toenail clippers! Maybe next time you can go to a gas station restroom for better lighting and a mirror!) work well.

  11. Coconut - it's the media, they make us feel like if we weren't finished by 4 am yesterday we're slackers. Well, I AM a slacker, so they got that right.

  12. Jen - I'm on my way!
    LV- good advice as always. I don't know why I let it dig at me this year. Maybe because driving home from my nephew's house Thanksgiving we saw so many fully decorated homes!
