Black Friday Weekend

I had to go shopping on Friday. I was dreading it.

But I had to go to the grocery store for a few items I needed for the second Thanksgiving dinner. We go to my sister’s house and therefore there are no leftovers. No carcass for me to make stock from. So I make the turkey and all the favorites after Thanksgiving.

Turns out I needed to make dressing to bring with, so I didn’t have the main ingredient in my stock anymore. So I had to go to the grocery store.

I set out on Friday at 9:45. There were not many cars in the lot. I went in the store and there were not many people there either. Got my shopping done quickly and even though there were only three lanes open (one was 15 items or less) I didn’t have to wait at all.

It seems everyone was out shopping everywhere but the grocery stores. Yay!

Only once did I actually venture out to try to get something on Black Friday. My mom wanted to get some Furbys. She talked my husband and me and Dad into going to WalMart at 5 am to try to get some. We got there that early. And there weren’t any Furbys. Never again.

When I was checking out at the grocery store I told the clerk that I needed new slippers too. She said, “but not today!”. I agreed completely. I may need new slippers, but not on Black Friday.
