Shopping malls, Black Friday, and the 27 days left until Christmas!

Hello fellow bloggers! Just a little note to say I hope that you are enjoying your holiday weekend.

I got to meet more relatives than I knew I had this holiday, I sat and ate two plates of food and felt like I gained 10 lbs. in 2 days. (I have leftovers galore).

My little ones enjoyed themselves immensely and are happy to be able to heat up their own food, without me preparing it before hand.

Anywho, did anyone celebrate Black Friday? I mean it behooves me to go shopping in all of that crowd, but a bargain is a bargain. I did one black Friday years ago and got knocked down. But before I got knocked down, a lady in a wheelchair scooted her way to the front of a pallet of DVD/VCRs (when they were new) and as soon as the employee took off the plastic she grabbed three and got up out of the wheelchair and walked to the register. Now that took guts!!

Anyway, people get too ballsy around that time for me. Another Christmas I witnessed a woman bite another woman for a 'Tickle Me Elmo'. Now you've got to be pretty desperate to BITE someone. Come on, I mean scratch, punch, or kick, but bite?! WHEW! I'm getting goosebumps just thinking about it.

Anywho, I braved the crowds today to buy some CDs and other what nots. I couldn't buy much because I had my lovely muffins with me, but I finish shopping when they return to school next week.

So everyone enjoy your weekend and good luck shopping!

I survived Black Friday this year. You can read more about that on my blog post about that day too hehe. I didn't see anyone bite anyone else or a non-handicap person using a chair, but I was rammed all over with shopping carts... not so fun and not worth the deals at Wal-Mart in my opinion.

Took 3 and got up out of her wheelchair, eh? Sheesh! And another turned into a rabid dog for an Elmo doll?! Yikes!

I went out on Black Friday and it was only my 2nd time (I shop online mostly). It went pretty well, no knock downs or disorderly conduct thankfully. Once the doors opened, some who didn't line up moved towards the door at Target, got yelled at by the crowd, and didn't try to enter "early" anymore.

*Thanks for you comment(s). I think peolpe don't get to many good bargains where I'm at. They can get REALLY ugly.

I also used to shop online but I've been disapponinted waaay to many times, so for now that idea is on hold.*
