Target, well... its like a black hole. You go in for shampoo and 2 hours and a hundred bucks later you wonder what the hell you just bought.
I went a little nuts there today. I went to pick up something that I had been meaning to get for my niece, and came home with several things for her and more items for each of my three nephews.
And as I showed Mr all of the things that I just had to get for them, I realized that I had to have these gifts because buying for them and making them happy, makes not having a child of my own a little less painful right now.
I know that Christmas Eve and Day are going to be a bit tougher than I have prepared myself for, but seeing the joy on my nephews' and niece's faces will help, even if just a little, to heal the ache...
