My grandpa send James and I Walmart gift cards for Christmas. Normally we don't shop there because of my ethics and James being from a town where it was the only place to shop. I spend 2 hours this morning roaming the aisles I did do a little of the weekly shopping there I'd forgotten how affordable something's can be. Anyway, once I find my lost "S" hook I now haves complete set of crochet hooks. Only thing holding me back from any project/skill is acquiring the string. Picked up a new set of glasses(drinking not optical). the wonderful ones @Jeffrey Yasskin bought us as wedding gifts sadly did not survive the room mates intact.  Got some organizational stuff like a cube for my yarn and vacuum bags for my stuffed animals. Not a bad trip, but I don't see us going back to regular shopping there. 

 The last giftmas stuff arrived yesterday. It was a case for my mom's iPad. You've no idea how hard it was to find a case for something other than an iPad 2. I am hoping she likes it and it gives the confidence to take the iPad with her places and not worry about breaking it.  Our case came in too! See james and breathing a sigh of relief; it's mostly Aiden's iPad so now we can be less panicky when he carries it off some place.

Speaking of Aiden the weaning is going pretty well. I'm really not sure where the time went next thing I know he'll be leaving for college! 

I'm still a bit lonely doing this parent thing I've decided I need to print this( http://jasongood.net/365/2011/06/day-166-to-all-my-friends-without-children/) and hand/mail it out to people that I'm missing. It's currently filed in my someone said it better links. 

I'm going to finish my slippers and go back to sleep

Cheers folks  happy new years  may this year be a little less difficult then 2011.
