We woke up at 4:30am Thursday morning to see if we could get the $97 TV. Well that of course didn’t happen. There was a line down the street! This is crazy, it is Thanksgiving morning!!! As we tried to get in the door, a woman banged her shopping cart into my Achilles heel. Really woman, why do you have a shopping cart in the line to get into the store…did you have injury me? Neither one of us were getting the TV and we already knew this! ARGH! We picked up some birthday presents for Evelyn. After that we drove past Best Buy to see if there was a line and there was. This was 7:30am on Thanksgiving Day! Seriously people! We went to Wal-Mart and got kicked out. Well we got kicked out of the Christmas tree area. We were looking at the Christmas trees in the garden center and they happen to be storing all the TVs for the 10pm sale in there. Eric started counting them and a very crabby Wal-Mart woman came back and said “what are you doing here, you need to get out here, this is a restricted area.” Um we are looking at Christmas trees and there is nothing saying this is a restricted area. After she bitched us out she put the restricted sign up. Stupid woman! After we got home from that we took Michael to Starbucks.
Thanksgiving dinner was great. The whole family was there. It was great. Soon after dinner Juliette, Eric and I started our Black Friday Shopping. We started at Wal-Mart. We got in the really long line for the 32” TV. The one that they guarantee would be in stock for an hour. I left Eric and Juliette in the line and I went looking for a present for mom. While I was walking around a woman with skunk hair did a double hit to my Achilles heel with her shopping cart. That is 3 times today my Achilles heel has taken a hit. Good news is we got the TV and got out of there. After that we went to Best Buy. We saw the line and decided it wasn’t worth it. It was out the front door, around the side of the building around the back wall. Wow! So we went to Starbucks (trip #2 of the day) at the Hy-Vee store, we got there just in time because they closed at 11:55pm. We went to Target and it was dead. They had been open for 3 hours already and you could tell it must have been busy at 9pm because the place looked like it had been trampled. We went back to Best Buy but the line was still really long and the store had been open for over 15 minutes so we decided it wasn’t worth it. We went to Kohl’s and the checkout lines were ridiculously long so we just went home.
Yesterday Eric, Juliette, Adam and I went to Kohl’s and Best Buy to pick up the things we decided weren’t important the night before. We made another stop at Starbucks and went to spend time with Chris and Leilani. Eric and Chris watched the Nebraska game. When it was done they went to Starbucks. Juliette, Morgan and I went to Panera Bread and eventually made our way back to Chris' house. We had some quality family time by watching Maury and then Juliette, Morgan and I went to Victoria Secrets, Bath and Body Works and Claire's. Morgan was so excited to go to Victoria Secrets. We spent the whole night at Chris' house and got back to Bonnie’s around 11pm. It has been a very busy holiday week.
