In all honesty, I completely forgot that today was Monday as I have the week off. No, I am not doing anything or traveling anywhere – just using up vacation time before I lose it. We had a COVID outbreak at my part-time job & I went in for a little bit to help out there. Thankfully, I work there so infrequently that I was not exposed but we currently have 6 associates out 😬 I suspected that this would be the week that retail workers would be hit hard. The Starbucks near my work is closed until further notice because they also had a major outbreak.
I got all of my Christmas shopping done this weekend, mostly because I think retail will be shut down post Black Friday. I could be wrong but didn’t want to find out either. Probably the highlight of my annual shopping trip is meeting up with my best friend & spending the day gift hunting. Obviously we could not do that this year but we did Skype while we wrapped gifts. Each year we do a Toys for Tots haul & just go nuts, it’s literally the most fun thing ever. We scour all of the toy gift guides & plan our attack. This year, I was fascinated by the LOL Surprise Dolls & knew I was snagging some of those. I think they’re pretty mature but they’re so popular that parents must be purchasing them? Anyway, I was super excited about Pop BB – listen, their names are completely asinine but she’s so cute. I had told my friend that I loved her because she looked like Madonna 😂 So, we’re showing each other our Tots haul & he also got Pop BB. I was like, but I got Pop BB then he said he got one so I could keep mine 😂 It was the nicest yet silliest thing anyone has done for me. I felt like a kid on Christmas opening that box.
I’m glad that my shopping is done, being out this weekend was one of the few times that I have felt truly anxious about getting sick. I generally feel confident in the restrictions & guidelines that are in place but there were so many people out that it made me nervous. I still have a small grocery run to do but plan on heading out very early to avoid the crowds.
It was a great weekend then I left this morning to discover that someone had stolen my holiday doormat which seems pretty fitting for a Monday 😂 I don’t understand people sometimes. What did you do this weekend? I hope that you are happy, healthy & just doing the best you can 🤍
