Busy day

Started out by sleeping in a bit late. Then got a phone call from Lu and Jon R. We talked for almost an hour, so that was nice. They wanted to know what had happened with Oldest Brother.

Then I got up and had breakfast and coffee, and called Oldest Brother. He is doing as well as can be expected, I guess.

Then I showered and got dressed, and went out to target for Christmas shopping. It was very crowded, and I spent a lot, and it took a long time, but I think my Christmas shopping is now done. Thank goodness. I just have to wait for two things to be delivered from Amazon, I hope they get here before Christmas. I also bought Oldest Brother a pair of fleece pajama pants and a NASA space shuttle tee shirt to wear with it.

I got food from the Target cafe, and just as I was buying it the Kid called. So I talked to her while I got the chicken Alfredo and went to the bus stop to eat it and talk to her.

Came home and put stuff away, then went right out again to take the stuff I bought for Oldest Brother to the rehab. It was dark by then, but not too cold luckily. I left off the stuff and then stopped at Right Aid on my way back, got one last thing for Middle Brother, and got some soda, but they didn't have cherry Pepsi or cherry Coke, and all they had was diet Coke, so I got some of that. No eggnog either.

Came home again and called oldest Brother, but the stuff hadn't been delivered to him yet. I hope it gets there tomorrow, the guy at the front desk said something about it being washed and name lables sewn in first.

[personal profile] mashfanficchick called, the gift cards arrived, so ze and zer mother were going to bring me mine. They were going to Target first though, so I asked them to pick me up the cherry Pepsi and eggnog.

Then I Skyped the FWiB. We had a good time, and got off just in time for me to call Middle Brother. He's looking forward to Christmas.

After I got off, [profile] mashfanfiicchick called and said they were almost here so I went out and met them. Talked for a few minutes, and got my stuff and the gift cards.

And since then I finished reading Jolene, the Mercedes Lackey book I've been reading, and played solitaire and fed the pets, and texted with Denise. They are getting Middle brother sneakers and sweats to use for therapy.

My second story was in the Starsky and Hutch Advent calendar today. Here's a link:
