The traffic clogs the roads. Shoppers fill the stores. Lines at the post office stagnate.
Okay, my two visits to the USPS (or affiliated postal station) haven’t been that bad. Hoping to keep it that way!
As we finish our shopping, my husband left at the crack of dawn to get the few remaining gifts and let me sleep. Later we went out for breakfast and dodged people at every stop. It’s nice to be done and home.
Traveling gives me an excuse to focus on my writing projects since my husband would rather drive.
I’m amazed how many people rush through the frenzy to get ready to spend only a day resting with their families before beginning a new rush with New Year’s Resolutions. Maybe we just don’t know how to relax.
