Every Year

Each and every year I tell myself I am not going to do it, I am not going to fight the shopping crowds the day after Thanksgiving.

Each and every year I break down and become a shopping fool. I fight the crowds, I get shoved, pushed, fight over that perfect sweater or christmas ornament, tramp through way too hot stores, circle the lot 5 times for an available parking space, get googley eyed at the sale signs, and complain at the end of the day about my aching feet and back.

This year I didn't shop the day after Thanksgiving, I actually started on Thanksgiving day..gotta love those non-stop marathon sales for things you don't truly need but it's better than hanging out with the family all day

The day after Thanskgiving this year I was sitting googley eyed in front of a slot machine ( yes, I break even and then some )at the casino.

I spent today fighting the crowds in the mall , getting shoved and hit by little old ladies, and cruising for the open parking space. I put my gambling winnings to good use and started off my shopping season by spending way too much money and oooooo my poor aching feet and back

so you avioded black friday and went to the casino anyway? hahah, thats great. I hate holiday shopping, and I suck at giving gifts. Thats why I just get people gift cards to places they like to shop. Yeah it doesnt have much thought into it I know. But its better than seeing that fake smile on christmas and the "oh.....thank you." And I always do my shopping as late as possible, because I suck like that haha.

AP-- I do need a massage.. should we vote on whether dasher needs to go out and get me a spa gift certificate?..lol

dasher-- I was a gambling fool, nothing better than the flashing lights and ding ding of the slot machines to get you in a holiday mood. I will also accept gifts, cash, and gift certificates . I do have to admit one year everyone gave me cash for Christmas, I was devastated. I thought that noone took the time to shop for me and took the easy way out
