After that, we headed off to the thrift store to drop off some donations and buy some stuff to fill up the empty spots where we'd got our donations. While I was there, I suddenly remembered that I needed to pick up a hamster cage and headed to the pet supply aisle. I was about halfway there when I stopped and wondered why I needed a hamster cage. Only then did I remember that the night before I dreamed we got a hamster and couldn't find a place to put it, then it got really big, like the size of a cat, and started having a ton of hamster babies, just one after another. Then I realized with relief that I didn't need to pick up a hamster cage after all since it was only a dream.
We went to Shopko after that to return something I'd bought last week that was defective. The kids came in with me and bought some things of their own. WE bought a box of about a dozen candy canes and I asked him if he was particularly hungry for them or what. He said got them to hand out to people that he ticks off - I told him he should have bought more boxes. He said he was thinking the same thing.
