Today I got my hair cut, then went shopping for presents. I quickly found what I wanted, had everything gift-wrapped, and returned home. Total elapsed time: about an hour and a half. I still need to help L shop for a gift for me, which may not be so easy. I have a hard time thinking of anything I want. I think I'll suggest she get me several small things (a book, a CD or DVD, etc). We also need to pick up some food and beverages for the Christmas weekend. We'll be having a quiet holiday at home.
