I love Maxine, but today we disagree!
More on the shopping in a minute...
Hubby and I had a wonderful late breakfast with the boys at IHOP. Pumpkin Muffin is visiting down at her aunt's house, where we had a fabulous Thanksgiving yesterday!
I have to give props to my sis, Kathy! She is a magnificent cook and really put together a great dinner, from atmosphere to food to company! Perfection!!! Hubby, the boys and I came home last night stuffed and happy from having a great holiday!
After breakfast, we dropped the boys off at home and set out to two stores. Neither are in big shopping malls, instead they are in strip malls, which may be why we had a good experience.
The traffic was heavier than usual, but not horrible. Hubby and I got close parking spots near each store we wanted to visit. Our shopping was also successful, great sale prices and we found what we needed to get!
I am happy to say that shopping for 2 of my 3 nephews is done and that I am about 85% done with Hammer and Fuzzy, and about 70% done with Pumpkin Muffin! Yay!
On a somber note, we have had some bad news. My cousin's grandma, our Booga, who has always been like a grandma to me, and a wonderful great grandma to my kids, is in the hospital. She is almost 84 and unfortunately has cancer that has spread from lungs to her brain. She has not had any pain and the only sign was a sudden confusion on Tuesday that signaled something was amiss. We are hopeful that she will be able to come home with some help from hospice for a peaceful passing, whenever that may be. We love her so, and will miss her terribly, but she has been ready for a while, since her hubby passed about 2 years back. He was her soul mate and best friend, and life has been tough for her without him.
My boys know, and are sad, but are doing okay with it. Pumpkin will find out tomorrow, and I know itwill really hard on her.
Prayers or peaceful wishes for Booga would be appreciated.
I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving and are having luck shopping or enjoying a restful day, whatever your pleasure!
ps. Booga was a pet name my cousin had for her grandma because when she was a baby and toddler her grandma called her Booga Bug.
