Speaking of being busy by the way..
Christmas is coming!!
In case you haven't been to a store, listened to the radio, or haven't noticed any of the commercials that have been on..but it's true. In less that 45 days, Christmas will be gracing us with it's "presents." ;)
Ah! This time last year, I was almost done shopping, and I have barely started this year. I am having a really hard time deciding on what gifts to give everyone. I do, thankfully, have the boys mostly done, but Tony's a different story. He's list requires a translator. <computer geek> Why must men be so hard to buy for?!?
Are you guys ready for Christmas? And yes, I know Thanksgiving comes first....
but why must we save the decorations and music for after? Can't we show our Thankfulness while sitting next to a Christmas tree? I think so! That is why we are planning on decorating this weekend! I'm ready to dig into all the fun festivities the holidays bring!
Again, my mind wonders off..
Have you seen the Walmart's Black Friday ad? It was posted last night, you can view it here. It's not so much the add that interest me, but the time that the store is opening. Try, 10pm on Thanksgiving night! Yes, Thanksgiving night! As much as I LOVE black Friday, and trust me I do..
<Don't believe me? I Shopped Black Friday, 1 day past my due date, when pregnant with Dominic. We got up at 2am and hit up 5 different stores! And it sent me into labor that night. I'm serious. Ha. So ya, I'm dedicated!>
..But opening up on Thanksgiving is taking it too far! And sadly, a lot of big store chains are opening up late that night too.
As for my husband and I, we will NOT be going out Thanksgiving night to shop. I know I'm one family out of a million, but it's time these GREEDY companies realize, that family time and values come first! So, ya there's my rant for the day.
Well, I better be getting to bed. We have contractors coming out to our house in the early a.m. to put in our new custom made front door. It's to replace the one that got busted in when our home got robbed in July. Joyful.
Stay tuned, I have a bunch of post on my "to do list" and I have a product review coming up!
