Surviving Black Friday

So many deals...

I went out Thursday night. I put the kids to bed, kissed my honey, and tackled the deals. Me -n- Target do not get along... is it me?!  Last year I stood in a meandering line for over an hour at Target. This year... I thought, I'm starting at a different time, it'll be a different line, but just in case, I brought Pride & Prejudice. Sure 'nough, I was meandering through a line that wandered all over the store reading P&P for over an hour. *rolls eyes* All for what?!  I can't say... it's a Christmas secret. I think it was worth it... except...

I started fading and it's only gotten worse. First I lost my speech. I started blabbing nonsense. Then I got a little silly... and then a little daring. Even after sleeping a few hours, the damage is progressively worse. I might not have noticed, but I drove back out into the mayhem for a few more deals with my honey, and he asked me intelligent questions, like Why did you try to run that yellow light? 

I have no clue.  I think that means I should... well... read a book. Lol.

We enjoyed leftover Thanksgiving deliciousness for dinner tonight. I love how Thanksgiving lingers. I don't really like shopping on Black Friday, but I do like getting excited about Christmas. I love finding a few really great deals, too.

I have some fun Cyber-Deal ideas for Colorimetry coming up... some extra giveaways to post in time to give gifts for Christmas. Plus, the Tour for Starflower is coming up fast, too. There are still a few openings on the Tour - if anyone's interested, email me!!

I so want to write something witty and intelligent, but I'm... well... in need of sleep. Lol.

So... do you have any Black Friday stories to share?  Did you bring a book to read in line just in case? Did you have a wonderful Thanksgiving? Are you still enjoying it?  :-)

  1. My bf went out to walmart on thursday night to do some grocery shopping, HUGE mistake, he got all the things in his cart (at first he didnt even have one there were none left) and was about to checkout but then a sea of hundreds of people swarmed to the checkout, he left his cart and walked out. i felt so bad for him, he took video and it was insane, there were fights and shouting and tons of badness.

    1. Oh no! I'm so sorry!! This is the first year I dared to enter Walmart at all, but I (accidently) timed my visit when everyone else was somewhere else. I'd recommend timing it like that if I knew how it happened. Lol.

      Reminds me, though... if you can't find what you want on the shelf (or wherever) look in the check-out line!!!!

  2. I went out on Thursday evening with my siblings. Walmart was crazy busy but when it came time to check out we had no wait time at all, which was surprising and I'm not complaining. Target was a different matter we waited in line for over and hour and a half. But I had my sister to keep me company. Despite the aching feet the night went pretty smoothly. I found some great deals and I'm well on my way to getting my Christmas shopping done!

    1. Doesn't it feel great to get so far along in Christmas shopping?! I forgot how good that felt 'til I was dragging myself back home. Wonderful!

  4. YOU ARE CRAZY!!!! LOL... I had Physical Therapy so that is the reason we hit the roade. As my brother and I were driving back we saw a store was quiet so we grabbed my moms birthday gift. MY brother however got bored and went out in the mid morning shopping. Besides from Kohl's it was quiet according to him!
