I printed off my Amazon Wishlist last night for my mom and then promptly forgot to get it into her hands as she and Vicki and my aunt and daughter headed out to brave the Black Friday shopping-pocalypse. Am I getting old? There were a couple of big-ticket items on my list, but in the past week or so I’ve just talked myself out of needing a blu-ray player, maybe still a new TV to replace the clunker upstairs, maybe a new lens for the Canon DSLR but maybe I can do without… Just not that big a deal to fill my stocking with big pricey shiny things this year, I guess. There are a few books I’d like, and I’d like to re-stock in sweaters, socks and pants for work, maybe a couple of games for family nights. Other than that, gift cards are wonderful – the gifts that keep on giving.
