Black Friday 2012

I am on one of the crazed many that looks forward to black Friday. I don’t fight, or pull, or push, or curse people out. I strategize. My mom taught me very well, and we have a perfect tradition of sitting in her bed on Thanksgiving day, and going through all the advertisements, making a quick list of items, item numbers, limited quantities, quantity limits, along with the name of the store. We then spend time checking prices and product reviews online, to see if the bargains are as good as we think they are. Then we come back to our list and revise. Then we start to plot our times, and ranks all of our items.

With the new addition of Grey Thursday, we have had to make some changes to our strategy, but we succeeded.

By far this year, my best buy was the Wii u at Sam’s club. I actually got it on their “VIP” night a few nights ago, but doing that left me all sorts of time for other stuff. First their was wal-mart at 8p for the Blu Ray Disc, then off to Old Navy. They had free Mario brothers for a $40 purchase. Well, since Old Navy is a family fave, especially for me and my boy, and they allowed us to get Old Navy gift cards, we were able to get two free Mario brothers game, and sell the second one for $40  so we got $40 in clothes for free. MWAHHAHHA it was awesome. We headed home for a few hours of sleep before getting up and tackling Academy for radar detectors, and shoes, and bikes, and workout gear, and fishing gear, and gps stuff. Academy was not nearly as crowded as I had suspected it would be, it was nice.

Then off to home depot, for more manly man stuff, and a steam mop that I wanted, but did not get. It seems I should have gone to home depot before academy, who would have thought?

After that it was time at the mall. A lot of time at the mall. Gifts, gifts, and more gifts, and coupons to use. Word from the wise, stay away from Kohls at all costs. They lure you in but the lines are always so long, that you can’t get out to go to other stores.

I felt the need to impart some wisdom. I get to play with all my new toys soon. Happy Saturday, Sunday, and cyber Monday

Today I Am Thankful for. . .

Here is my short list.

My son.

My man, my Dom, my lover, and my best friend in the whole wide world.

Orgasms, honestly, where would we all be without them?

My teeth, because without them I’d have a hard time pigging out today.

My parents for traveling with me, so the mother and I could continue our black friday tradition, another week of so excited I can barely contain myself.

My dear dear TBS superstation, for promising to play a Christmas story yet again this year, the days will fly fast.

Last, but not least, I am thankful for my future mother in law not making my life miserable. Apparently this new shiny ring has super powers!

 

Happy thanksgiving everyone!

 

I am back!

I am home and unpacked. I have a few things to write. One is I am surprised at how much I missed writing some decent posts. It is good to let out a decent rant every now and then, but I am happy to be home. Here I can write something I feel worth while. More to come later today I have to do some post vacation shopping. Does anyone else hate coming home to the fridge you purposely emptied before the vacation, and now there is nothing to eat in the house. Sigh, pros and cons of travel. Write to you guys soon!

P.S. I am jonesing for some quinoa salad.

AHHHH- yea, that sums it up

When you start to live with someone, you have to start splitting the holidays. I am not the only one with a “future mother in law” that is so hard to deal with. So today this space is for me to rant, and rave, to someone besides my man. I honestly feel sorry for him having to listen to the both of us bicker about the other.

I try to be respectful, I really do, but the from Memorial day to Labor Day and every holiday/ family weekend in between is spent at a resort in Hilton Head close to the family condo. I can only take so much! The fact that I am not family, just a ” fornicating live in” gives her cause to make my life hell. I can’t stay at the family condo so we have to rent a room.

If I don’t cook, I am not pulling me weight. What weight I have no idea since I can’t stay with them.

If I cook, then I am cooking in her kitchen, and I screw everything up.

If I don’t want to do what the family is doing then I am not a team player.

If I go with the family, then I have to hear about my fornicating live in status and how I shouldn’t be here.

AHHHH, I need one hell of a stress relief session ASAP

Why do I do this to myself????? Oh right, stupid Love.
