Your Life: The gift of time could be the best gift of all
Charlotte Lankard: For many, help in the way of errands and household chores would be a welcome Christmas gift.
Along the same lines is a service called “A 2nd Me.” Two young stay-at-home moms, Paula Abrams and Katie Dedmond, will run errands like trips to the grocery store, the pharmacy or the cleaners and even do personal gift shopping. They will wait at your home for the cable guy or repairman so you don't have to miss work.
If you have a caregiver on your list, they will sit with their loved one while the caregiver runs errands or takes care of personal needs and will do light cooking and cleaning.
They charge an hourly fee, with no extra cost for mileage. A gift of a few hours would be welcomed by anyone.
Check out their website: www.a2ndme.com or phone them: Paula at 642-3060; Katie at 210-3409.
That is a gift you might give to yourself!
