So what was my problem? I really don’t know.
I’d like to blame it on the unseasonably warm weather we have had here in the northeast. But alas, that has been true for the past three or four years now, so I don’t really think that is it.
I could blame it on Internet Shopping, but I have been doing that since before the Dot Boom when Bust. As a matter of fact thanks to last minute cancellations and backorders, I may have purchased more in stores this year than I have in some time. Although I did “shop” a bit less… as in browsing stores and such, just to be out and mingle and look and… you know… actually touch something before purchase.
I guess, I should try and look on the bright side. I made it through the holidays and only the masses of the Internet know how I really felt… how empty this season just seemed to be. Because I was able to pull of appearing like everything was just the way it should be, so well that the Grinch himself would be proud.
With this coat and this hat… I look just like St. Nick.
