the polar bear...

she wants the POLAR BEAR...
it's on her LIST!
Have YOU seen the polar bear... !

i drove around town like a mad woman looking for a wii...
NO ONE in town had it... and i mean NO ONE!
i felt like the BIGGEST loser... everyone in the stores looked at me like...
"lady... you waited WAY too long"...
okay... but i THOUGHT (silly me thinking) that since it has been such a HIT...
and it's been out for YEARS... they would be better prepared for the demand!  
right?  
am i crazy?  
no... don't answer that! 
Are you having "a time" finding what's on their lists?  

btw... i did found the wii... as much time as i spend online...
HELLO... crazy lady... look there FIRST!  

I am actually (at the moment) feeling relaxed about everything... you know ALL there is to do...
i know it will get done... sooner or later... it has to right (?)...
i think i do better under pressure anyway! :)

I am sure you will find "the polar bear". The Wii - yeah that was me last year.....kids got it for their birthday's this year! Thinking of you this week. My husband is staying with friends in Parker - working in Denver and Grand Junction.

Christine said...

Thats crazy about the Wii, I thought surely they wouldn't be that crazy this year!! Congrats though!

I'm sure you've checked out target for the polar bear but I saw one there the other day at our target. I've gotta run there on Saturday again, of they have it, want to get it and mail to you?!?

I haven't done AnY shopping yet... UGH... hopefully I can shop this Saturday. I've sketched out patterns for some gifts I'm making. Kurt has two little girls 6 & 7; I'm making them all new bedding and pillows for their gifts. I found their sheets at Target so I need to get those. Kurt's a single dad with no design sense so I thought the girls needed a slash of color and goodness to their room. I bought them fabric last year but was in the hospital the month of December and January so I didn't get to do it and then left for Florida for treatments. LOL... okay I'm writing a novel on your blog... hehe...

Good luck with shopping!! Let me know about the Polar Bear and I'll keep an eye out. Shay's loves the littlest pet shop!

I love the littlest pet shop - I even had some when I was a kid. I think they are even cuter now with their big heads and eyes. I can't wait to see that polar bear. Riley looks like she might like her toys in order like I did. She's a doll baby - Do you ever experience parental cannibalism like Cjane? I know I would - because I experience God parental cannibalism sometimes :)

meg duerksen said...

good luck.
i spent 2 hours online last night looking for black and white polka dot bedding that is not expensive like PB.
USELESS.
complete waste of my time.

grrrr.....

i hope you find/found your polar bear.
limited too?

Kathy said...

I hope you can find what you need in time!!!!

I did all my shopping online this year!! No stores and found everything I needed. However, my 12 year old daughter did have an interesting and unusual "BIG" item request on her list this year. She wants a mannequin. Yep, she wants to be a dress designer. So I go to pottery barn thinking this is easy enough..."uh no mom, not a dress form, a mannequin." OMG it has to have a head and hair!!!! Where does one find that? I spent hours online searching only finding ones for $800 and $500, but finally found one for around $200. My NYC mannequin comes with long blond hair, make up, eye lashes and painted nails!! But no clothes!! So I am off to look for something not expensive in a size 5 for this wonderful addition to our family!!!

Make sure you stop by my blog after Christmas because I will be posting pictures.

Good luck everyone on searching for your holiday needs!!!

I am with you; all the craze why not produce more...I mean sales would increase right? It's always when your not looking for it you find it! Glad you did find online...good luck with the polar bear!
