'Tis the Season

...for this tired gift-giver to panic. I'm really bad at choosing gifts, and I know it. Compounded with a procrastination problem, and a general aversion to spending money while we owe money, this leads inevitably to me wandering around in circles the last few days before Christmas muttering to myself and getting increasingly frantic about what I'm going to get everyone. If S weren't as good as he is at picking presents for the kids, Christmas at our house would be dire indeed.

Right now I'm trying to find a local source, any local source for 2x men's silk pajamas. Doesn't seem like a tough item does it? Right. The only store I've found so far that carries men's silk pajamas at all, doesn't carry any size above L. Not because they're out. Because they, as a matter of policy, don't stock any size above a men's L.

I'm not even going to go into the hunt for obscure geneology books.

I love Christmas - starting Christmas morning. The lead in gives me migraines.

I'm here - kind of. My parents are visiting, and that makes for interesting times all 'round. I'll post a new entry pretty soon. I hope your Christmas was great!
