I'm not shopping.


Most people I know headed out to shop at the crack of dawn today.  I  have absolutely no interest in shopping on "Black Friday", nor have I ever.   I enjoy shopping, (only when I have money to spend - hate window shopping!) but the reason Black Friday doesn't appeal to me is that it involves large crowds and long lines. Yeah, I know that sounds bizarre for someone to say who's always getting up in front crowds large and small, talking.  But it's just who I am.  I try to go to stores or restaurants or whatever when the least amount of people are there.

I'm really going to enjoy a quiet day at home today pulling out my Christmas decorations and putting up my trees which is what I always do the day after Thanksgiving.  This is really important to me.  If you want to know why I will be putting up at least five Christmas trees this year, read this.

I am getting weepy/warm and fuzzy/happy about how awesome God is just thinking about your "Five Christmas trees" blog. Seriously, people - if you haven't read this post, click the link and read it RIGHT NOW!!!!

I'm with you on the "Black Friday" thing...we usually go out later in the day, get our Caribou Hot Apple blasts, and walk through the mall drinking them and looking at the decorations. I stay FAR AWAY from department stores, though!!!! In in my humble opinion? 5:00 am on my day off is for SLEEPING, not shopping!!
