October 7, 2001
These last couple of months are going to blaze right by me. I'm already in negotiations with the family on my Christmas vacation schedule. I'm not sure who I have to haggle with more: my boss or parents. It's early October and it's the most important topic of their calls.

I’m not ready for Christmas.

Back in February I thought up a new plan. Each month, I’d purchase two Christmas gifts. That way, by the time December rolled around I’d practically be finished shopping. And my bank account wouldn’t suffer the typical Holiday crunch. I haven’t bought a single thing.
