Tired and sore. And so am I. I have learned that I should not attempt to do all of my Christmas shopping—all of the "brick and mortar" part, that is—in one day, because by the end I am so fed up with the whole shopping scene that I'm unable to spend more than a couple of minutes in a store, to say nothing of actually managing to purchase anything. Nevertheless, I somehow to grapple enough items that I feel a distinct drain on my bank account. I'm not actually sure what I bought; it will require further investigation to determine that. I do know that it wasn't everything on my list, so a further expedition into the wilderness of commerce will be necessary later in the week. Can't we do this all online?!
