I've heard from my son several times today. He says the right side of his face is more swollen today and that he feels like he was ran over by a big truck. When I talked to him on the phone, he sounded stuffed up like he had a bad head cold. A friend of his came and took him to clean out his car, so he was happy that's done.
He only had one request for Christmas...an electric blanket. His upstairs aprtment has very little heat in the winter so I can understand why he'd want one. Well, I called around.....today being the biggest shopping day before Christmas, I was surprised that those who answered the phones in the various stores were very pleasant. I ended up at my favorite store...Gottschalks....at a mall near my home. They had Sunbeam electric blankets for 80% off. So this beautiful $180.00 blanket cost me just under $60.00. I was thrilled and I know he'll be happy to have a warm bed. I told him I'd found one and that I'd leave it out and he could have it before Christmas. When it's something they need...it's mean to make them wait until December 25th. Other than that, I didn't do any shopping. I think I'm pretty much done anyway.
It's still very cold tonight. They say it's snowing like crazy in the mountains. But Gabi and I are all cozy here in the house with a fire in the wood stove, so we don't care. I'm anxious to see if the weather man is correct in saying we'll get snow down here in the lowlands. My car has all time 4 wheel drive but I still don't like to drive in the snow because of the other people on the road. There are some drivers who like to even exceed the speed limit the worse the streets are. I never could figure out that mentality.
Well folks it's back to my Christmas cards...and the movie I've got going. Take care and have a wonderful Saturday. Until next time.............Linda
P.S. Bye Jeannette and Andy....have fun and be safe !!!!!
