24 hour stores

Last night I had to go to the grocery store. A simple trip to pick up a few items for the camp. On my way off the camp, I picked up my friend Amy. We had a blast shopping and we were in NO hurry!! Why be in a hurry, the store was open 24 hours a day and our children were in bed. In my no hurry shopping, I was able to spend time in the toy section and get some ideas of Christmas gifts. I slowly walked through all the video aisles, but didn't find the one video I was looking for. I saw a billion electronic gadgets a few aisles over though. I looked through the tool aisle (Daniel's favorite). Last I shopped for the food that I went for and then we left. Amy and I had such a great time together. We ended up talking outside her trailer for almost an hour. My little adventure to the store took me from when I left at 9:00 on Friday night and until 12:45 Saturday morning!! Any one want to go with me next time?

Lisa, it is great to have you back. Sorry that I haven't posted this week. I have been busy working on a Christmas project for some family members. I should be posting more now. I was just kinda into the project and didn't want to stop working on it.

A Wal-mart or Meijer that is open 24 hours is only vaguely familiar after our time here in the Philippines. The idea of getting everything in one spot and not dealing with language barriers amazing.

I would love to go with you next time! Canadians don't believe in 24 hour stores, except for Tim Hortons (coffee and donut place - also serve soup and sandwiches)! I'm glad you had fun!

Peggy, you are joking! No 24 hour stores? Wow that would really mess me up now a days.
