Black Friday

I don't do Black Friday!  Did it once and didn't see the point nor did I enjoy it.  I find I buy twice as much because I got it at half the price.   Long lines, pushing people and prices that I can find next week or on the internet.  I don't want to be just another piece of livestock in the cattle call of holiday sales.   I'm sorry, I know some people really enjoy it.    I want an attentive sales clerk not one that is stressed and over tired from dealing with the mobs.  I want happy, joyous fellow shoppers not ones trying to beat you to the last featured item of the season.   Maybe because I am not searching for the latest and greatest hot item this year.   I have to wonder if Mr. Walton, founder of Walmarts, was sitting and enjoying his family while all his employees were forced to go to work at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving to get a jump on reaping in the $$$ from the holiday shoppers.  It was bad enough when stores would open at 4 a.m. Friday and now they start the Thanksgiving evening.  Family time people!

Turkey sandwiches and family with a wee bit of stitching.   That is my day's plans!  Tomorrow let the decorating start!  I am hosting stitching next week and would love to be done before Thursday.   Not likely but I could give it the good ole college try.   Before the weekend is over, stitching progress to share as well as a new chart I might cave on starting.

I don't either. My kids stay at my Mom's with my sister and BIL for 2 nights. Dh and I go out for breakfast and then come home and veg for a day and a half. It's a little pre-Christmas break! LOL

I have to make some HUGE stitching progress on my sister's b-day gift if I want it in her mailbox by Dec. 7!
