Holiday shoppingThis is — to use one of my dad’s favorite expressions — a prime example of … well, I don’t know what. But Do-it-yourselfsomething. It’s still two weeks until the Labor Day weekend, yet walking around a corner in Hobby Lobby I ran smack dab into a clash of holidays that jarred my eyes and confused my brain. Islands of orange pumpkins and homespun scarecrows competed with rows of red Christmas bows and twinkling evergreen trees. I don’t even know if a summer item was left anywhere in the store — if you’re looking for something to enhance your Labor Day cookout, forget it. And why is Hobby Lobby doing this to us, anyway? On my ever-lengthening Stress List, “get ready for holidays” wasn’t even a contender. But now it’s vying for a top spot. Thanks a lot, Hobby Lobby!

  1. Don’t worry Cathy, there’s plenty of time. Enjoy the rest of August. Even September gives up nice weather – Indian summer. Let the Crafters pay attention to the orange, and greens/reds, and go about your business. Don’t let it get to you. I just think they rush our lives, and I refuse to let them.

  2. Okay. I’m going to stop preaching and go to meddling. “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, or the body more than clothing . . . and can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? . . . So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”
