I shall not be dissuaded

I'm moving. This means, of course, packing. And to do this effectively I need to sort through and throw out stuff I am not planning on moving with me. The idea is to get rid of stuff so I don't have too much to pack.

It's simple. Get rid of stuff so I carry less stuff with me. It's practically become my new mantra.

And yet I'm practically giddy over the idea of going on Wednesday afternoon to a local home furnishings store because I saw in their sales circular for this week a collection of Santa Clauses that I simply must have. Oh yeah, I'm going to look for new lamps and a new sofa while I'm there but that's definitely secondary activity compared to me adding groovy new Santas to my beloved collection. I don't even know where I'm going to display them but screw it - I'm buying them. The rest is merely a minor detail.

And if it gets a little cramped in the boxes then I'll just have to throw some more stuff out. Like...oh...I dunno. Some PC games of B's.

Shhhhh! He'll never miss 'em.

Oh, I am just so thrilled to know another person who gets geeked out about Christmas stuff. I, myself, am a snowglobe conneisseur... and I cannot resist them either. I see a cute Christmas snowglobe and all frugal intentions just fly right out of my head.

Please take some photos of your Santas and post them so that I may be appropriately jealous!

We are all secret Christmas fanatics...and if we are three, then there are many more.
Come out, come out, fear not!

I've SO been where you are right now! "Must. Not. Buy. More. Crap. Oh, OK, unless it's really cute and I love it." ;)

ACK! Santa buying must wait a day because I have to buy paint during my only available time. But Thursday - oh sweet Thursday - you shall have hours devoted to buying Santa figurines.

It's not just that it's Christmas jazz - it's Santas. I have a big collection of Santa ornaments.

I shall weep bitterly if they're sold out of what I want.
