Have I told you that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday? Well, it is and it always rubs me the wrong way to see Christmas stuff up in stores November 1st or for some even before Halloween.
Yesterday though, I got hit in the face with what Christmas is going to be like with children.
Oh yes, it will be a magical, fun and wonderful time.
But it is also going to be......CUT-THROAT!
Let me explain. My parents are divorced hence we have multiple Christmas's to go to. So many in fact that my mom's Christmas is actually done two weeks in advance. So yesterday I figured that I should probably go ahead and order Ethan's Christmas outfit just to make sure it would get here on time.
I'd decided on a reversible long all that he could wear to multiple Christmas's after much searching to find an economical solution (the price of kids clothes is another rant all in itself). I called to place my order because for some reason the online site wasn't working.
I was told that all the holiday clothing was sold out. Not just my size, not just that outfit...all of it. They ran out last weekend.
I don't get it. Am I just really off my game or what? Is this how it works? Do I have to start ordering Christmas stuff in August???
Oh and the particular gift I had decided on for E out of a catalog I got last weekend....sold out.
Christmas is officially on my crap list.
BAH HUM BUG!
