Started my Christmas shopping today--finally. Got the little kids all done. They're the easy ones. I have a fair idea what I'm getting for most others. Also picked up the birthday cards for the rest of the month - they will probably contain money or gift cards this year, plus flowers for mom.
Just 10 actual work days left in my career. The remaining three or so weeks include many days off.
This is one of my favorite Christmas tunes. Sometimes a bluesy sort of song is called for.
