CHRISTMAS SEASON DAY # 16

Good Morning, Friends and post-Thanksgiving Christmas Anticipators!

I hope everyone's weekend is off to a great start and that all of you had a successful Black Friday.
But not to worry if you didn't - you still have a least a few more shopping opportunities!

Cold here in Raleigh at this hour where we stand at 42 degrees under sunny skies.
We should have a dry couple of days until rain returns on Monday.

Days to Christmas Day: 27
(Less than 4 weeks now! Get that shopping done and those cameras snapping. Help support your friendly local Christmas Blossosms thread!)

Have a Stupendous Saturday, Everyone!

Good Morning, MMC! Hope all is well and ready to enjoy a great Saturday.

What to do?

Online Christmas shopping? Going back and doing some real Christmas shopping? Add more lights to the house? Clean? Work?

Hmmmm.....I think online Christmas shopping will work! Then I think I will add more lights....and finally....we will go back and do more Christmas shopping today! Where does the rest come in?

Good morning, everyone!!

Only three full days of November left before our favourite month of the year! The Christmas Season has taken over everything! It's hard pressed to find a TV commercial or anything that is not Christmas oriented now. I love it!!

It also appears that snow is taking over my forecast! Five of the next seven days have the chance of snow! I am really hope that the white stuff can stay on the ground from then until Christmas, too. Well, as long as it does not affect my bus traveling next Friday night or my trip to Green Bay on the Sunday-Tuesday, I will be all right.

Another busy day in the library. I need to buckle down on this essay and get at least three pages written today. This will leave me in good shape for the rest of the week as it should be completed by Tuesday, which would be absolutely perfect!! Kim and I are going Christmas shopping tonight! Well, since I am leaving early this year, we are going out for dinner and then shopping. It should be loads of fun!! We're both quite excited.

Anyway, I should definitely let you on your way. Day 16 already? Wow... Star, that gingerbread house must be delicious!!

Have a great Saturday everyone!!

Thanksgiving was great! Yesterday we went to Chicago to look at the decorations and visit the Kris Kringle Market. When we got home we started decorating. We put up all the decorations we have stored in the house today we are getting the stuff down from the attic. Have a good day everyone!

I have finally gotten up from sleeping all morning. We had a great thanksgiving and a okay balck friday. Mom got sick so she didn't go out but she gave me her list and money and I went with my aunt and sister. I started out alone at toys r us at 10:30pm on thursday night. I got there and an hour and a half before they opened and was the 121st person in line. It was about 28 degrees out and there was a constant wind of about 15mph which made it worse. I was smart and put on my thermal underwear before I went but I should have put on two pair of socks. By the time the store opened the line was wrapped around the shopping complex. I drove the route the line took when I left and it was 1/2 mile long. The store was a mad house when it opened but I managed to get everything my aunt and sister wanted. I only bought one gift while I was there. The main reason I went was for my aunt who didn't want to stay up that late. I waited in line for 2 1/2 hours to checkout and then it was back home to meet my aunt and sister to go everywhere else. We then went to Wal mart, Kmart, Target, Kohls, Meijer, Fashion Bug, Sears, Michaels, Big Lots, Menards, and Walgreens. I was buying energy drinks at every other store to keep me going since I had been up over 24 hours at that point. When we got back later at 3 yesterday afternoon my friend called and asked if I wanted to go to downtown Indy to the lighting of the tree. I told him I would so he picked me up and we headed to downtown with more energy drinks in my pockets. We parked and walked down to the circle and enjoyed the concert and the lighting. Then we went to the big mall and did some more shopping. By the time he dropped me off at home it was almost 2 o'clock in the morning. I had been up for 46 hours but was so hyped up on caffeine that I went ahead and decorated the christmas tree and finished the decorations in the kitchen. I finally went to bed about 5 and just got up about a hour ago. I had a fun time but I didn't get much shopping done for myself. So I am probally going to go out later today to do some more. I hope everyone has a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No way I would have that much stamina.
