No reindeer antlers or light up sweaters for me...Black Friday in Hickville, USA


I got up at 3:30 this morning and went shopping. It has always been a tradition on Black Friday. I have to get out with the crazy women who wear reindeer antlers and big gawdy light -up Christmas sweaters. As much as I love Christmas I refuse to wear those antlers or those light up sweaters! I shopped for 14 hours straight. Just when I thought I couldn't shop anymore I got a hot giant pretzel and then I felt I could go on. I went on and on......... I felt like the Energizer rabbit. I took a licking and kept on ticking. You might ask Girl "Why are you blogging?" It is because I am too sore and tired to walk or talk and I may sleep in the chair I am sitting in!

Last year on Black Friday I went to Target at 5am. The women were waiting in line with those light up antlers and sweaters. It was about 30 degrees outside. As soon as the Target man unlocked the door the women grabbed a cart and ran with the carts as fast as their legs could go. I started laughing at these women and almost peed my pants. The laugh was on me! I didn't get any of the early bird specials because they hogged them all up. These women were on serious mission. This is no recreational activity I learned. Today as a matter of fact 2 women in my hometown were arrested at Wal-Mart because they were fighting over the last item on a special! Darn, I missed the drama there! This definately gives a new meaning to "I'd kill for that!" or Shop till you drop!"

I have decided Thanksgiving is a mans holiday . The women cook and clean for days while the men graze and waller around on the floor . Then, to top it off, they watch football the live long day. Don't get me wrong I don't mind to give them this day to the men because on Black Friday I am going to shop until I can no longer walk and spend a ton of money. This is the only time of year that I spurge. I am normally very thrifty. I hardly spend any money all year long.

Tomorrow, I will start putting up all my Christmas stuff. It takes me nearly 2 weeks to get everything just right. I am looking forward to this time with my family and all the festivities. My oldest daughter is in a Madrigal choir and she will perform at a Madrigal dinner. I am looking so...forward to this. Please forgive me for skipping around from subject to subject that is the way that my mind works. I think I have adult add.......LOL

Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving! I am relishing the long 4 day weekend. I braved the crowds on Friday, but I didn't get up early for the "doorbusters". I went again today and it really wasn't bad at all. We had great parking spaces and didn't have to wait to check out. Actually, we found everything we were looking for on the shelves. But tomorrow I have to get serious about decorating (and laundry, LOL). ~ Robyn
