Yippee It's Friday!!

Are you doing the dance of joy because today is Friday? I'm sure those of you who work are happy to see the weekend. I remember when I worked how happy I was to have the weekend off. Now I'm retired so weekends are pretty much the same for me as the rest of the week. This time next week it will be Black Friday and the biggest shopping day. For me, I can't even be tempted to venture out and deal with crowds no matter how big the bargain. Are you a Black Friday shopper? I prefer to shop online and I'm already seeing some good deals. My biggest problem is what to buy for my grandchildren. As they grow older they have specific things in mind so I'm hoping their moms will give me some ideas soon. I really don't want to wait until the last minute to have to shop. Plus I notice that prices seem to increase the closer we get to Christmas. Anyway, I still have two birthdays to get through this month. My son is law turns 50 on Tuesday and then my Aunt is at the end of the month and she'll be 93. Thanksgiving is right in the middle of the birthdays. Not much happening here in my little corner of the myLot world. What's going on with you this Friday?

Like you I'm retired so Friday for me means I'll be staying home for 3 days, I've learned that if I need to go out and about, especially during the school months, it's best to make it between Monday and Thursdays and here I don't tackle I10 until after 9am, I hate all the rush hour kadunk.

The worst part of shopping this time of year is when parents take their sick kids with them so that everyone else can get sick as well @Marilynda1225 it just makes no sense to me because it's also not good for sick kids to be out and about.

Noone I know has weekends off besides my aunt and thats because she's a teacher.. Everyone else usually works at least one weekend day, and has days off during the week. My weekends are the same as weekdays too, besides when I babysit my cousins and nieces and nephews on the weekends. No black friday shopping here, did it once and never again too crowded and too many people with BO. Don't online shop either, unless we cant find what we want in store.

Its now Saturday. Yesterday I had supper out, hubby went to a union meeting. I snooped in the Goodwill, decided there was nothing that I had to have or die without. I like Saturday cause I do not have to drive hubby to work. I did not sleep in as planned due to a demanding cat. A little headache is trying to barge in cause I am quite tired but here I am! My Mom's 96th birthday is right on Thanksgiving. Its not a busy month for me cause I do not go anywhere, and we are not roasting a turkey.
