That event doesn’t occur for at least another month so I have plenty of time to prepare for it. What, it’s next weekend, wait I’m not ready.
That’s the way I feel when I realized that Thanksgiving is less than a week away. It seems like only yesterday I had plenty of time to get organized and ready. Now it’s almost here and I’m no more ready than I was two weeks ago (well maybe a little).
We’re not celebrating Thanksgiving until the weekend, but then we have several family gatherings to attend. The problem is I have to keep reminding myself that the stores will be closed Thursday for the holiday and then there’s Friday (oh, no).
You see, I hate the Friday after Thanksgiving .. Black Friday. I’m not big on shopping with large crowds. I’m not one of those who get up at 2 a.m. to get a really great deal at some store. I’d love the deal, but I enjoy my sleep more and can’t see pushing my way through a crowd.
I’m always in town on Black Friday because of work and then I have to go grocery shopping. I’ve tried to get all my groceries earlier in the week so I don’t have to be there, but I always forget something or something comes up and we need extra stuff from the store. So there I go, but it is usually later in the afternoon so the crowd is not so bad.
The reason I’m a little better off than I was two weeks ago, I did pick up a ham and a turkey today. But when I got home I was informed we’d probably need another turkey - so it’s back to the grocery store.
The holidays are hectic enough but then trying to keep up with what stores will be open when, what else is needed, where we’re gathering, when are we gathering, who’s bringing what and oh yeah, there’s the daily routine that has to go on too.
It all just gets rumbled in my brain and the days vanish before I know it.
Do the holidays cause days to vanish for you? What about Black Friday … are you a shopper or wait until the crowd thins out?
