Black Friday Survivor
So I did it.. I did the "Black Friday" thing. Although I wasn't one of the early birds.. but I did go early enough. I dropped all the kids off at my parents' house (thank you daddy!) and went off in search of my hunky hubby's Christmas gift(s). It was around 10am when I pulled into the packed (no signs of a weak economy there!) parking lot. I went into the first store.. got what I wanted and stood in line for about 10 minutes. Went to the next store, got what I wanted and stood in line for about 2 minutes. Went to another store, got what I wanted and stood in line for 45 (!!!!) minutes! There was only 4 other transactions in front of me.. but the cashier was soooo slow. I didn't think it would take that long.. but sure enough it did. Anyway, I then went to my next place and got what I wanted and stood in line for about 5 minutes. So all in all it wasn't all that bad. I was back home in under three and half hours. AND I got all the kids their Christmas outfits and their Christmas PJs. AND I'm done (unless I find something else along the way) with Kent's Christmas. WOOT!
