I’m not opposed to shopping on Black Friday. We have always used it as an opportunity to purchase things we need/would be buying anyway, but at cheap prices. For example, my annual 6:00 AM trip to JoAnn for 99 cent flannel. (Of course, it used to be 86 cents…)
Wally was awake for the drive over, and for the shopping, but he fell asleep while I was getting the fabric cut, so we just tossed him on the pile. Everyone joked, of course, about which asile they were selling the adorable children.
We’re also stopping back at JoAnn tomorrow to pick up the knit jersey I need to finish the kids’ hoodies for Christmas, an art kit that’s on sale for Wally, and some notions that I need anyway.
We actually were out all day today. We left at 5:15 or so, and got back at 6:00 PM. But far from the frenzied pace you might expect, we were quite leisurely, which is why we were out all day! And we took my mom to the doctor, picked her up, had lunch, installed her TV, etc.
