Today I got to go Christmas shopping with my Babi (Czech for Grandma). We have gone every year for the last… oh, five or so. I think this year has been especially hard now that my grandpa is gone – she seems to be quite lonely. I’m so glad to be back home and want to spend as much time as possible with her! I have Friday’s off, and the plan is to be available if she wants to go shopping, or just go over and help in her garden. I have been away for so long that I really want to take advantage of living only 20 minutes away.
