Due to austerity measures required by the current dismal economy, I was forced to do without graphics for today's post. It's a tough world out there folks.
I'm down to my last bit of shopping. The mall last night was insane. The entire parking lot of the mall was full and people were parking at nearby restaurants and walking over to mall from there. I just managed to get lucky and passed a car pulling out of it's space at the very edge of the parking lot and grabbed it for myself. I never felt so fortunate to walk so far.
I also never felt so fat.
Yep, one of my New Years resolutions is going to have to involve losing a hundred pounds or so. My poor legs have enough trouble getting me around as it is without me making it harder for them. At this rate, if I ever need a wheelchair they will have to strap a diesel motor to it...and of course a beeper in case I need to back up. Anyways, that's resolution one pretty much taken care of. Try not to be so fat.
So tonight I'll go back out and try to finish my shopping after Karla gets home. I only need a few more things so things are looking good.
Wish me luck, folks!
(Correction: I said in an earlier post that this year was the first that we had a Christmas tree out in the living room. Karla lovingly assures me that that is merely a feature of my famous memory manifesting itself and that we had a tree in the living room last year as well...just in a different corner. A quick check of last years Christmas photos confirms her position, so I stand corrected. Sigh, my memory is getting tragic)
