What were we thinking???

I forgot to tell you about our black Friday shopping trip. We haven't done the day after Thanksgiving shopping since the first year we were married. This year, with the number of children we have and the economy the way it is decided it was worth the madness. When I arrived at Toys R Us at 4:50AM I realized that the rest of Florida decided it was worth it too. I was backed up in line by half a block and was wondering if I would even get what I came for. It was fun talking with the other moms in line. We all came to the conclusion that parents would do a lot for their children, that's why we were all here at the wee hour of 5AM. The doors opened promptly and we all filed in. I was surprised that there was no pushing or shoving. I made my way through the crowded store with my basket and was able to get everything I wanted. I did have to wait about 30 minutes to check out though. Then we were off to a few more stores to get a few more good deals. I didn't get anything big, just lots of little things. Even though we were really tired the rest of the day, I think it was a good decision. The girls are going to like their gifts and I like that I didn't have to pay full price. YEAH!!
