Shop 'Til I Drop

This will be short since I'm off to the stores again today. Yesterday's shopping extravaganza started at 8:00AM and I was on the go until 6:00PM. Rick managed to buy 3 more golfshirts and 2 fleece sweatshirts at the golfwear outlet sale and then I dropped him off at home and proceeded to the first of 2 big indoor malls and 3 shopping centers with discount stores. I managed to come away with a few small stocking-stuffer-type gifts for my family members and friends which is really all I went for. So I guess you can call it a successful venture.

The only victims of this adventure were my feet. Can you say they are killing me even after spending a night propped up in bed. What I really need is:

Or maybe this:

So now I'm off again today in search of more small gifts....this time for Rick's family as well as several of our friends. When I get home later, I guess I'll try to convince Rick that a foot rub would be really nice. After all...I am shopping for gifts for his family.

I think that would be a great idea for Rick to rub your feet for you. Hee hee

I'm also eyeballing one of those foot baths with the massager bumps in it.

I pulled something in my lower I'm running the massager pad in my chair lots.

Enjoy yourself and pump some money into our failing economy for me being that I don't have any to do so!

It must be fun to go shopping when you don't have to find gifts for assorted family members. I've yet to start braving the crowds!
