While I Was Out Shopping – Gifts That Didn’t Make the Cut

Posted by Wombat Central on January 3, 2017 in Christmas, Gift giving, Shopping |

Tweet Happy New Year! Another holiday season has come and gone, and with it the Christmas shopping tension I vow to alleviate each year. I make every attempt to get things done early so I’m not out with the last-minute Lucys of the world. Thing is, there’s invariably something I need during that final week […]

Heard it while driving […]

Tweet If you’re not Catholic, the confessional is an ornate little wooden hut with either doors or velvety curtain doors inside a church where you go to confess your sins. It’s kind of like stepping into a photobooth, but far less fun, because you have no pictures to show for your time spent in there. […]
