It's that time of year when everyone loses their ability to think rationally. I'm talking about holiday shoppers and their waiting until the last minute to shop. Talk about the traffic and such, it's a mad house out there.
I got all my shopping done yesterday. Of course Dave had a few items (essentials) to pick up and we wanted to fill the car before the gas stations raised their rates for those folks heading out of town for the holiday. They do it every year. Along comes a holiday and the gas stations like to make a few more bucks on people because they know people will be traveling. That doesn't help us who stay home. However we did find a Murphy's Oil Co. where the gas was $2.85 a gallon. The other stations had already started creeping up to over $3.00 a gallon.
Living in a college town the gas is even higher that up the road in Moore. Everything is higher here, food, homes, gas...sometimes I just get so tired of it. I know we're suppose to support our local economy but when they sock it to you I like to sock it right back and take my business elsewhere.
Christie arrive last Saturday for her Christmas visit. She will be here until the 9th of January. So with the kids coming in tomorrow, we will have a full house. Sure glad we have lots of room to put up everyone.
Hope everyone has all their shopping done and the presents wrapped and under the tree, cause Santa will be paying you a visit here soon.
Merry Christmas everyone and too all a Good Night...
1 Day left till CHRISTMAS!
