Crazy fun!

Can I just start by saying - I am SO tired today! Anyone want to jab at why??? You guessed it. I was one of the crazies standing in line in the middle of the night.

Last year was my first year shopping on Black Friday, and I have to admit, it was sort fun - crazy fun! But last year I only started at 6am. This year I got a little more adventuresome and was in line at Kohl's at 3:45 am! There must have been 1,000 people plus by the time I got in line. I just couldn't believe it. Luckily, it really wasn't all that cold, only like 20 degrees.

As they opened the SINGLE door, trying to get everyone to form a single line, I thought, "by the time I get in, the 2 things I came for will be gone. Would it be worth standing in this line? Sure it would."
It took a good 10 minutes to squeeze my way through the single door - the single file line, NOT happening. I rushed to the toy department and there they were - only 2 left......MINE! It was a success!!!
On my way to check out I also browsed through my department and swiped up at pair of jeans and sweater, too!
So now, my buns are dragging, BADLY.

Come Christmas, it will be all worth it!

Anyone else have any good Black Friday stories?

I didn't go out. I have gone one time, back in 1997, and haven't gone again since :)

I have read your story and got it from Who says 8 is enough? I would like to know what your daughter likes and such. A group of friends and I are going to send her a cap. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and your beautiful baby is feeling well.
