Our trip to Kitchener last Saturday to see our son, Bryan, and his girlfriend, Cayley, was a huge success. Not only did Mike help Bryan fix his car, which was our main reason for visiting, but we also got a ton of Christmas shopping done. The Lindt Chocolate Outlet was just as fabulous as ever, and we left with a huge bag full of chocolates for stocking stuffers (and a few to eat on the way home). Then we headed to a real city mall, which I don’t get to experience very often because I live in the sticks.
The mall was amazing, not only because I was able to cross quite a few Christmas gifts off my list, but also because this particular mall has an Apple store – the most wonderful store in the world (along with book stores of course). I had been on a waiting list at our local electronics store for the new iPhone 6 Plus for a month or more and had also inquired at other stores with no luck, but when I walked into the most wonderful store in the world to buy a Christmas present for someone else and happened to mention that I was trying to wait patiently for my new phone, the awesome Apple representative made my day by telling me that they had them in stock. Within five minutes my new baby was in my hands, and she is a beauty :). Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas to me!!! Now I’m in the process of listing my old phone for sale which will hopefully cover a good portion of the money I spent. Who knew how much money people will spend for used phones. I had no idea.
Of course, where there is good there is often bad unfortunately, and I did spend a couple of days this week fighting a flu bug, but I am feeling better now and ready to enjoy the weekend. Let’s get it started with some fun. Who thinks they are smart this week? Who has what it takes to figure out the mystery photo? Ok, ready, set, go….
