I got my grad photos taken today. I was *not* feeling it. Heh. I planned to get up early. yeah right. I did get up earlier than I would have gotten up for class (no make-up)… I just can’t seem to get up. I’m almost positive its depression, but I think it’s more than just the winter blues because I find it hard to wake up even when the sun is shining and that always used to work. I’m not terribly depressed… but enough. (shrug) So anyway…
After I got my photos taken I went to Blacks to check up on my present to my Mum and Dad for their 25th Wedding Anniversary. I took their wedding album and picked the three photos you see on the left and asked Blacks to make enlarge the photos and make a collage large enough for a 16″ x 20″ silver frame. They couldn’t find the scanned photos. (panic) They found them a few minutes later. whew. He wasn’t quite done yet, so I went to find Dad’s present to Mum.
He works a lot, so he doesn’t have a lot of time to shop plus it would take him 5 years. Accuracy, not speed. That’s his motto1. And with my Dad’s cash and instructions2 in hand, I went in search of a jacket that my Mum would love. And I found one at American Eagle Outfitters!! I also bought gloves, a scarf and a toque in a cute striped pattern that matches perfectly. Ooh oh I was also instructed to buy flowers… so I picked out an adorable bouquet of roses and lillies, and had them delivered to her office.
I spent so much time at the mall though, going through almost every strore there trying to find suitable accessories… I didn’t decide on the gloves, scarf and hat till I got to the Old Navy near my house! Crazy!! After 1 1/2 hours of wrapping, it was time to leave to pick up my mum before I knew it. Off to Milestone’s! I wanted to buy them dinner but my parents insisted on paying… they said that I had done enough and that I should really keep my money since I’ll be going on that trip to Dublin for New Years. So I compromised the only way I could think of by paying the tip! It was a great day all-in-all… I’m glad my parents enjoyed it.
