if you know me at all (or have read this blog) you know one of my favorite hobbies is.....shopping. yes. shopping. and all kinds, not just clothes. i even like to shop for food, granted it creative or different or high quality. i mean check out my "about me" icon. she's just been shopping! i don't really care too much about shopping for diapers or milk or paper products, but everything else, i am game. and i am a good shopper. i rarely impulse buy and i always look for the best deal available. always. so Black Friday should be right up my ally, no? NO IS RIGHT. i hate it. and love it too. but more so i hate it. so this year i am not going! yep, that right folks, the shop-a-holic is sitting this one out. no more can i stand the lines and the rushing than i can the ridiculous attitudes of people trying get that "doorbuster deal". what the heck is that anyway? i also can't stand the horrible attitudes of the sales people who must have been practicing their "i could care less about customer service, even though it's my job" attitudes a little early as i had several run ins this week.
so while i am sure that i will be missing out on at least one or two good deals, i am much more content to stay at home and get prepped for my 2nd annual thanksgiving dinner which we will serve on Saturday because, well we like to mix it up around here. i have yet to figure out how to get everything hot at the same time but i am working on it.
may everyone have a happy and restfully fantastic thanksgiving! love that tryptophan nap! even though i don't know many of you, your blogs and comments bring me great fun and for that i am thankful!
