    I went to shoppers the other day to pick up my parcel and some woman was shipping a very large box. It cost her 104$ for 3 day shipping. Like damn shoppers charges an arm and a leg plus a kidney! It wasnít exactly wrapped in the right paper or in the right tape.

    I was up 1/2 the night with food poisoning. The staff was treated to pizza when I was teaching on Friday. I think that is the source because no one else in our family is sick. Dh took our kids to the indoor play centre. He had our collectorís card, a free admission coupon, water bottles and snacks from home. Iím staying home to rest. Iím feeling light headed, guts are still sore, etc. Iíll take a nap. Iíll need to do some laundry and grocery shopping today, but it can wait for now.

    Also heading out to finish a few last minute things. I used to work retail so I M ready for whatever crazy is out there. I am so annoyed with Canada Post. I have my youngest sons gift in transit and has been for the past 5 days. I only opted for delivery to save me a 10 minute drive to Best Buy. As it is I am probably going to have to go and buy it and then return the one when it finally gets off the truck.

    Lilo-we are also waiting for something my husband ordered from Best Buy via CP. Online it says it was delivered to our community mailbox on Dec 20 but it certainly wasn't-maybe today?

    Ms. Sunshine is out and making some progress on the ice still on sidewalks everywhere. When I walked the section to the library (second time), I had to grab onto a fence as I slid on ice. No issues the first time (had a magazine to return before I went to the movie theatre.

    I spent money on two butter toppings to get the layered popcorn mentioned in the Dec. Cineplex magazine (bought the small size bag). I was rather peeved at the 35 min of preshow stuff-ok Timeplay and "interviews" take about 10min, then ads one recalls from TV (no less than 2 Amazon Prime videos plus the singing boxes ad) for about another 10min, then finally the movie trailers (yes, the Wonder Woman 1984 trailer impresses better on the big screen--I may think about an IMAX ticket when the movie comes out in June). The only issue was that some of the trailers are not suitable for minors under 10 (there were 6-7 of them in this morning's first show with parents/guardians). Had about 25 people in the theatre. Since I read many books based on the Star Wars Episodes 4-6 trilogy, I figured I knew which characters would end up in the last episode. Nope. Now I need to watch all those missed Star Wars movies to figure out where the stories in book form diverge from what the Lucas storyline had in the first 6 movies (as I read in Cineplex magazine, once Lucasfilm was sold to Disney, Lucas did not have a say in the last three films' stories). 2h20min of movie by the time credits roll. How amazing is it that John Williams has scored the movie?

    I was amazed about how hopping the parking lots outside the cinema, Chapters Indigo and LCBO were once I exited just after 12pm.

    I was not able to get a good signal for Global Morning Show (after 7am) for some reason as most over the air channels were breaking up their signals (except for one TVO signal and 35-1 in Barrie and CHCH in Hamilton). No idea what today's code word for the gift prize is today.

    There will be a small grocery shop on the way home-fresh produce and something to drink at home as there's only orange juice or mineral water in the house. Will see if the stack of Frozen II gingerbread houses has been diminishing (or not) in the produce section.

    In other news, on Saturday, I was watching clips of The Child aka Baby Yoda from The Mandalorian online. I'd like a true plush version of The Child but not with a vinyl head. The people manipulating the animatronic child (who is 50 yr old) are doing a fabulous job trying to make The Child curious and somewhat childlike in the series.

    Remember about two weeks ago, I went to the Hudson's Bay store to buy some Jockey underwear? One of the six pairs has a horizontal row of 11 holes in it. Either it was a knitting error when fabric was made or someone sent a set of hooks down too early. But the fabric section got attached and made into a pair of underwear. I'll launder the affected pair and make rags out of it.

    I plan to have a cup of tea later today. I was keen to get to the library early as it closes at 1pm, so computers will shut-down at 12:45pm. No Internet for three days (muffled cries...).

    The nearby Starbucks will close after today, so I may pop in for a sweet treat. Plan to visit Value Village to look over holiday decor (last day for 50% off is today BUT Dec.26 onwards, the decor will be 75% off).

    Yesterday's score-the Frozen II decorating kit. It was $14.99, Fortino's store sign shows it on sale for $4.99!! (Of course the stack was about 1/3 of what it was last week.) I bought one kit and plan to assemble it on Dec.31 or Jan. 1! Check your Loblaws stores/Fortinos stores for the kits!
