Went to my parents' home this morning, early, to take my mother Christmas shopping. She is 75 years old. She needs a cane. She is hard of hearing. She is diabetic. But she can still shop anybody under the table.
We left the house around 9:30 this morning. We came back around 2:45 this afternoon. 5 hours of shopping, except for lunch.
I am bushed!
Decided I'd try to stay here all weekend, rather than return to the city on Saturday to work my shift for Operation Twinkletoes. Called the volunteer co-ordinator, who said I could certainly work the 15th instead, so I will. Apparently, there will be a videographer at the dispatch centre that night anyway. I may be on tv or something. That would be kinda cool.
My father wants to buy some Christmas wreaths. Will try to post on Saturday.
