Slept til 8:48 a.m. Read in bed for 45 minutes. Got up. Got dressed. Ate breakfast. Cleaned my toilet and washed the bathroom floor. Washed all the bathmats. Helped Nora try on ALL of her clothes to see what is too small and if we need warm clothes for Canada next month. We don’t,YAY!
That is all. So far.
Truly I don’t understand the desire to push through crowds at the wee hours of the day to save a couple bucks. Yes, I do understand that there are some good deals to be had, but truly, do we NEED all this stuff we already have? I have come to the conclusion …. in my house we don’t. Not everybody in my house agrees, but he is gone at work most days…… heh heh heh.
Recently I was lead blindfolded with hands tied behind my back to a facebook group with 2400 local members where you can buy and sell the junk in your house. It’s earth friendly. It’s convenient. In one hour online and one trip to the Walmart parking lot, I collected $45 and got rid of four items in the garage sale pile. Another lady came to my house and purchased a boxed set of books for $12… that we had TWO of. Selling on this site rakes in far more cashola than a garage sale would bring for these same items. It’s better than eBay because there are no fees and I don’t have to ship the junk. I love it. I am addicted… well, when I have a pile of unwanted treasures to sell.
The remainder of Black Friday 2012 will be consumed with having dinner with college friends that we haven’t seen in 25 years, and a homeschool board meeting. Then I get to sleep in again tomorrow! I realize those of you who know me well, think I sleep in every day, but that is not true…. very much. I have even been arising when the number 7 is on the clock! Astonishing, I know. And I’m showering before leaving my room….. AND I’m making my bed every morning. It only took 45 years to get into these amazing habits. Just goes to show you that the old dog, new trick idea isn’t true.
Enjoy your weekend!
