Close To Home


Today is Black Friday.

Here’s a list of things I won’t be doing today:

  • getting up at 0-dark thirty to hit the big sales
  • standing in long lines at the check-out
  • fighting traffic in the mall parking lots
  • soaking my aching feet later

I’m staying close to home today.

Motor Man and I have invited a few of my former classmates over for a casual get-together this evening.

A list of things I will be doing today:

  • last minute cleaning
  • last minute decorating
  • last minute food preparation

 Do you see a pattern here?  Perhaps I put everything off til the last minute.

But it’s sure better than fighting the crowds on Black Friday.

I’m putting that shopping off til later.

  1. There is absolutely NOTHING that I need bad enough to go near a store or mall this whole weekend!!!
    And, lucky me, I didn’t even have to cook on Thanksgiving…thank the good Lord for a daughter who is an excellent cook.

  2. Home is definitely the place to be today! The sale ads from yesterday’s paper made a stack about 3 & a half inches tall … :/

    This is my day each year to set back and laugh at all the crazy people 🙂
    Enjoy your evening and hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving, we had a lovely one.

  4. Last minute is the only way I can be productive!
