Rueckert: Holiday shopping, entertainment here at home
Noreen Rueckert
I used to have a small group of friends who would invite me along for a shopping day before the holidays. They would busily check things off lists, agonize over the perfect gifts and lug shopping bags out to the car. Meanwhile, I’d be finetuning my personal shopper skills — by shopping for myself, usually in the shoe department — and wondering when they would be ready to break for lunch.
