Welcome to my blog, SCRIBBLING TO (IN)SANITY! First time here? I'm a romance writer who wants to believe most problems can be solved over coffee, a mixed drink or by anything covered in chocolate. I'm a believer in second chances and that it's always the right time to fall in love. As the saying goes, you're a guest in my house only once...then you're family. So I invite you to join the fun! I love comments but it's okay to lurk too - just know I'm glad you've found me and I hope you visit me again soon!

On the holiday wish list

What I'm Reading: Lakeshore Christmas by Susan Wiggs
What I'm listening to: Holiday music on Pandora

I'm starting to lose count of all my family and friends boasting posting they're done with their holiday shopping. Seriously, some of these crazy people were done weeks ago! (I may have to block them from my Facebook  news feed, it's really starting to annoy me.)

I wish I could be one of those "early-bird" shoppers, but I have several picky hard-to-buy-for people on my list. And the kid's lists are even more challenging, scoring the right color and size for the teenagers is always a fun afternoon. Haha.

The malls are hot. The crowds overwhelming. Sometimes I convince myself a giftcard is the best option, and then I feel like a scrooge for not getting a more personal gift. I do love to shop online - shopping in my PJs is SO much more fun!

Choices, choices...too many choices.

This year when I was asked what was on MY list, I tried to be practical:

B&N gift card (to feed my eBook addiction)

The family told me I am BORING. (Can you imagine?) You see, they KNOW me and they know when it comes to my wish list, I am usually anything but practical.)

So...they want a better list? Here is list #2.

Shearling slippers from LLBean (because my feet are worth $80 slippers right?)
Pandora Charms for my bracelet
B&N Giftcards
Anything chocolate
A new moleskin notebook that fits in my bag
A weekend away (with hubby!)
(Hats, scarves and gloves still apply!)

Not sure that list #2 is so much better than list #1, but at least it's more specific. I'm thinking of printing out the list and hanging it on the refrigerator so there are no excuses when anyone says they didn't know what to get me this year.

How about you? Got anything that's a "must-have" on your list this year?

Happy scribbling and shopping (but not at the same time!)
