Holiday Journal #2
So, it's Day 2 of not going to work (weekend not included). Grandma and Grandpa got into the holiday spirit yesterday at the Pearl market, driving hard bargains and mastering the art of the walk-away. Many gifts were purchased, as were some "me" items. Sunglasses, a couple DVDs (who knew "Howard the Duck" would be available?!), some personalized mahogany name stampers for the boys, and a lot of etc. Cold weather couldn't stop us--it was like 35 degrees and windy. Sarah and the grand's branched off to buy antiques whilst I stalked the aisles of Movie Shop (where I am now a VIP member), then separate cabs home for a great dinner by Lyn (glass noodles with cabbage, peppers and chicken) and a screening of Toy Story. The 10th Anniversary remastering looks superb, BTW.
Today we're hanging out, playing with Star Wars figures, maybe go run around the school gym. Dinner downtown tonight and then sneak some more presents under the tree after the boys conk out.
