Friday 12/18/09 - "SPINNING LIKE A TOP"



FLASH FICTION FRIDAY 55



"SPINNING LIKE A TOP"

I've too many coupons for too many stores.
I've people to please with just the right gift.
What am I looking for? Am I in the right spot?
My purse is too small with papers galore.
And here I stand with purchases in hand.
Where is that crazy coupon?
Help, I'm spinning like a top!

You summed it all up about holiday shopping in only 55! Talk about insanity! The spinning top is a good visual!

It does make you crazy to try to navigate the stores this time of year.

I've so been there - and will be again! But wouldn't it be nice just to relax and enjoy the holidays, rather than spinning out of control in preparation for them?!

I didn't have to worry about it this year, whew... sorta a relief! Hang in there, it will be over before you know it! Great 55!
