Poor Deprived Grandchild

It's a well known fact that I am not a shopper. Don't get me wrong...you all know I LOVE the As Seen On TV products and Amazon has been known to call and see if I'm OK if I'm not on their site at least once a day but go to the mall and spend the afternoon shopping? No way, I would rather poke myself in the eye with a fork. Apparently my aversion to mall shopping gene has been passed to my oldest child. Polly needed to pick up a few things for a trip they have coming up so she and 5 yr old Matthew made the dreaded trip to their local mall. They walked in, Matthew looked around and said, "MAMA! Why haven't we been here before??" My family is so cosmopolitan.

Ya, my family is pretty up town too. We got to the mall about once every other year :)

I am NOT a shopper but somehow own a daughter who is. How does that happen?

I haven't been to a mall in several years and don't miss it one bit.
On the other hand, my sisters love to go shopping. A lot.

As I was reading I thought I had written it. I want to shop where I can park, go 30 feet, grab what I want and leave. I did love it when we had stores downtown on the square and we walked from store to store, in winter and Christmas especially you could hear carols playing from the courthouse and all the lights downtown but I hate inside Malls.

Geez. There are a few of those mall things around here, but I haven't been in about 2-1/2 years. I just can't stand the overload.
