It's rather weird how your feelings can change overnight. Last week, I was dreading the holidays. I was anticipating all the cooking, shopping craziness, the parties that we would be hosting, holiday cards, cleaning the house, ETC. However, once we had Thanksgiving and put up the tree, I felt a complete change.
I was ready!
Art and I got up at 5:00 AM and were out the door for the Black Friday Sales. The lines at Macy's was nuts in certain departments and empty in others. Of course we were in the snaking hour-long check out line. The funny thing is, we weren't even buying the Door Buster stuff. We didn't have to be there so early. Then again, parking was nuts,too so Art's insistence on going early was smart. When we went to drop something off at the car, I felt awful feeling eyes hopefully looking at our space.
We then went to Bed, Bath and Beyond, Borders and Longs.
We've got our tree up and a good headstart on our holiday shopping. I do believe we're doing OK. Woohoo!
