Black Friday

Good old Black Friday, when all the nuts are out. We didn’t go out until 10:00, so we avoided most of the crazies, but the lines were still long. First we hit Kohl’s. I only went for a Ninja Blender, but picked up a couple other things along the way. The lines were all the way to the back of the store. Luckily, the line only took 20 minutes. On the way out the door, some lady bashed me in the knee with her cart. Right in the knee where I had a meniscus tear a few years ago. Damn people are in such a hurry to get the good deals, they don’t give a shit about anyone else. She didn’t even stop to see if I was alright.

Next we went to Target and got a few things for a giving tree at church, a few of those $4 movies, and a new griddle I was after for myself. (I broke mine several months ago when it fell off the counter when I was doing dishes – oops.) We walked straight up to the line, no waiting.

Then we went to Verizon – you guessed it – I gave in and got my daughter a phone. I only gave in because we live quite a distance from school and she is in a lot of activities. Otherwise I would have made her wait. One and a half hours wait time at Verizon. We went to McDonalds while we waited. I think they ripped me off though. Since I was adding her onto my plan, I had to change to a different plan. I have a 5GB plan, which doesn’t exist for family plans. They have 4GB or 8GB. I clearly don’t need 8GB. Well, they can’t change to a lower plan in the middle of the month (as if you’re going to go change plans on the EXACT first day of the month of your plan). They said if we wanted the new phone to be active today, I had to upgrade to the 8GB plan for the next 12 days and then go down to the 4GB plan. Give me a break! Well, what was I going to do? Leave it inactive for almost 2 weeks with my daughter standing there? She knew she was getting it today. I have to call them tomorrow and make sure I didn’t get ripped off. They were so busy, I’m not sure they knew what they were even doing.

Last we went to Hobby Lobby and bought a bunch of stuff we didn’t even need. Scrapbooks and stickers were on sale for 50% off. Gotta have some of those. I’m trying to catch up, and I always say I love being 50 and still playing with stickers!

I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving. I loved having a quiet day with my husband and daughter. I got some of my Christmas decorations up and the cats haven’t climbed the tree, so I may be able to put ornaments on after all.
