I survived Thanksgiving- Hallaluyer.
We went to our middle sister’s house and she was the host but did not cook anything and did a freak out whenever someone spilled something on her stove. Aside from wanting to pop her upside her head, everything went well. We watched Journey to the Center of the Earth, Iron Man and Kung Fu Panda. We did not go to sleep until 3 or 4 and I did not sleep well because I was very afraid of my sister’s cats. They kept walking around me looking at me and meowing. One of them jumped on me a few times while I was sitting and knitting, minding my own bidness. I was afraid they would attack me in my sleep- which has happened before. So no, I did not sleep well.
We woke up late and watched a little of “What Not to Wear” and the news. We finally left at 2 ish with full intentions on going to Target and Best Buy. By the time we got downtown, it was almost six and we were tired and grumpy. We decided to stay downtown and watch the tree lighting ceremony- we missed it. On our way out of the mall, I saw that Plush had the floor cushion I have wanted for a few years on sale. I had to go in. I got the cushion and cover for under $130 when it usually sells for over $300! It was a bit akward getting it home on the bus, but once I unleashed it from it’s canvas confines, it puffs up nicely and my daughter laughs as I plop into it. I layed it on my floor and gloried in it’s softness and forced myself to go to my ol lumpy bed.
The next day, my youngest sister, our friend and my daughter head out for shopping fun. I decided my daughter was old enough to finally enjoy her video game system and bought her Dance Revolution, Hello Kitty Rainboots and little trinkets. I think I am done. My friend got a laptop for a steal at $300. My daughter bought a cell phone for $10, the only person who walked out without a deal was my sister. Too bad, so sad.
I don’t want to go crazy gift wise and get all super-consumer, so I will call it a day for my girl’s gifts.
