Today was the first day of our sixteen day stretch off of work and school. Can you imagine? We have no plans and may just end up bumming around the house for a couple of weeks but decided at least to pop out this afternoon and watch the last minute shoppers freaking out. We, of course, are done with our Christmas shopping so we could make a leisurely stop in to the golf store and take a couple practice swings. We were actually surprised that there didn't seem to be too much panic going on out there after all, which is good because it was snowing and the roads were bad and everyone ought to have been at home anyway.
