The problem with getting my holiday shopping done early is that it leaves me plenty of time to re-shop. I stick to a budget much better when I'm scrambling on the 23rd. Kind of like in school when I would procrastinate until the night before big papers were due and pull an all-nighter. For some reason, I always got A's on those papers, written from the gut with no time to edit and self-criticize.
But it does feel good to have it all pretty much done and nothing left but the wrapping.
Guess who's already back to doing cartwheels again? You guessed it. Arm's still a little sore when he runs full tilt into the couch, but other than that, he's using it fully.
