I am still struggling to feel Christmas in the air. But, I am so busy and tired. I cannot believe Christmas is only 2 weeks away. 2011 is almost over. I am missing out on all the good things. I would like to go to a mall and spend 30 minutes looking for a parking spot. I want to hear babies crying in the store. I want ugly people to cut in front of me at the checkout line. I want to do store hopping until my legs hurt, then I would go back to the store to return items. I would love to have those magic moments for Christmas 2011.
Back to reality.
I woke up with no hot water at my apartment. I had to boil a pot of water and give myself a bird-bath. I went to work super late with wet hair (I have long hair). Thank God it’s Friday.
I try to go to Costco often until Costco takes down Christmas. I put on my Santa hat and headed out to Costco.
At Costco, a young family with a baby girl in the cart saw me. The mother kept telling the baby girl that I was Santa. The father asked me to say "Ho ho ho". So, I said "Ho ho ho" to the baby. Shoppers around us smiled at us.
Today’s Costco shopping was about holiday teat for myself. I don’t have a family of my own. I don’t even have a date this year. So, I shall treat myself with good food. There will be a full course Christmas dinner. There will be shrimp cocktail, crab legs, drinks, chocolates, and much more…
I was happy to see Center Cut Ham Fillet for $11.00. This will be my main dish for Christmas dinner.
I have a high hope for this margarita mix I picked up for $9.99. It’s all mixed and ready to drink. I shall crush ice with ice pick for this drink. My refrigerator doesn’t crush ice like rich people’s do.
After Costco shopping, I ate a hot-dog and filled my gas tank. At the gas station one tall gentleman saw me with my Santa hat. "Did you get my list?" he asked. So, I said "Yes, I have to go home check it tonight." We smiled.
It’s always good time at Costco. I would pay to shop there…. Oh, I do. 🙂
