Gold and Silver Days


I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving! Mine included turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, soft, buttery rolls... much fabulous food that I wish I could rewind back to again. And, of course, it was nice to see family that I hadn't seen for several months.
I am reminded of many things I have to be thankful for this year, most of which are the usual food, shelter, family, etc., but I am also thankful for opportunities and experiences I have been able to be part of. I am thankful to find success in education, pleasure in hobbies, and freedom in beliefs. There is also an adventure I am thankful to be embarking on in the beginning of the next year, but that is a secret to be revealed at another time. :)
 Tonight I also got out for some early Black Friday deals, and I have to say it is not a particularly pleasing event when there are dozens of people going after the same things you are. Before I had even made it very far into a store, a woman very rudely shouted, "Move out of the way, ____ it!" And I was so shocked that someone would be so outrageous (to me, a stranger who was not really doing anything worthy of that treatment) that I completely forgot what I was standing there for in the first place, and when I finally remembered that I was in line to get an ad, I also realized I would have to get in line right behind that very blatant woman. Now THAT was an exciting experience.
 After I recovered and was able to quickly create some distance between us, I located the luggage I was going after (a nice houndstooth hardcase) and picked up a few extra things along the way. I nearly had a heart attack when I realized that two people were loading up on the very suitcases I had my eye on too, but fortunately they decided not to take the entire pallet's worth of products and I secured mine. It drives me crazy when people stock-pile their carts with sale items only to sell them later on eBay for a higher price. I mean, what about us people who only want one? And have been looking and looking for that one item to go on sale finally?? It almost seems dishonest, the way they are taking advantage of lowered store prices. But hey. That's my own humbled opinion. :)

Are you a deal-seeker or a crowd-avoider? What are your plans for Black Friday?

  1. I spent Black Friday at home, but I did go out later to avoid the crowds. I'm proud to say all I bought was movies.



Thank you for a lovely comment.
