    For the daughters of my cousins, I will give some gift cards. It's hard to choose something teenage girls will like.
    I suggest getting them Visa gift cards, so they can use them nearly anywhere.

    Well today I ordered a shower chair and a new lightweight vacuum online for my Mom. It's what my Mom wants. She said that would be her Christmas gift. But...I see those as practical, needed items. I'll still give her cash so she can buy what she wants. She wants a new white purse but it's best she pick it out herself.

    What I'd like for Christmas is to go to the mall's movie theater and see a movie with my Mom.

    The new lightweight vacuum arrived today and I did some vacuuming. My mom isn't feeling well. Her doctor told her she has gall stones and fatty liver disease. https://www.fishertitus.org/health/fatty-liver-disease

    The vacuum I bought went on sale after I bought it. It's now only $19.99. A few dollars difference. I bought the purple one. It is a light purple, like a lilac.

    I will try to find something to mom ... as I'm in Skåne. Something which will be linked to Skåne and which will remind of my time there (= their daughter is grown up and is first time longer period away from home). My mom already said that house will gonna feel ''empty''.

    To my grandparents I will bring 5kg of frozen elk/moose meat

    The shower chair for my mom arrived today and I was stunned that it wasn't already put together. I was expecting a huge box with a chair in it. It came assembly required. It didn't say that on the website (walmart). Had a terrible time trying to figure out how to put it together. My mom said just take it back to the store and I said, "no, you need a chair". The instruction booklet was of little to no help. I had to go online to look up what a gasket is. It's the little round thing. Then I googled "I need help assembling a shower chair correctly", and found a youtube video that helped me somewhat. In the video the gasket is called a bent washer. I finally put it together. Luckily I had a screwdriver.

    I bought a small folding table for my mom but I showed it to her online and it's not the type she wanted. It's coming by mail anyway. I'm paying my mom's December AmEx bill, that'll be her Christmas present. Already set up the payment on the phone.

    I'm buying myself Barbie and Ken dolls, and doll clothes.

    I went with my mom Saturday to about 5 stores (or more!) looking at purses/handbags. She wanted a white or black purse (preferably white) that has a crossbody strap, no chains, and is soft leather. Didn't find anything she liked.

    I went on eBay and searched for something she would like. I didn't find anything in white except for a bag in the UK which would take too long. I ordered a soft oiled leather handbag crossbody tote/satchel, in black, for her Christmas present. I also ordered two button down sweaters (one white and one black). She has one in red and mentioned she wished she had one in white or black. It's not exactly the same. I hope she likes it/them. They are v-necks. She hates high neck collars. I have Christmas wrapping paper and scotch tape.

    We live in Miami where it's too hot to wear a sweater but my mom often says she is cold, especially now that it's almost winter. Elderly people often feel cold.


    All three items estimated delivery date is the 18th.

    I found a white crossbody bag in leather and ordered it, but then after ordering it I saw another one that I think she'll like more, so I'm trying to cancel the order for the first white bag, and I ordered the second white bag.
