Ah, family

I'm planning to head home to NC tomorrow. My dad called me up yesterday and asked me to pick up a bottle of wine for him, because the closest place it was available was past where am I am now. In fact, it was 3 hours away from me! So, rather than actually get any cleaning, packing or baking done, I spent the day driving up to NoVa to pick up a bottle of wine.

I'd feel much worse about the whole ordeal if my dad had ever asked me for anything else. This was honestly the first time he'd ever asked a favor of me, so I felt that it was the least I could do. So, now it's almost ten, and I'm about to run to the grocery store to get the last ingredients for Christmas baking, so that I can make some gingerbread muffins tonight, before I head out in the morning.
