Yesterday I had such a wonderful time with my family. Sure I ate too much and had to set my scales back 10 But it was a goodtime. Good food, laughter and lots of hugs from my niece & nephew. Watching them play their new WII U was also fun. I don’t know if I should think it’s funny or be embarrassed that when I play a game with my 5 year old nephew he sometimes has to take my control and say here let me show you.
We always have lunch around noon and then spend the day playing games or talking and moaning about overeating. Usually by 6 or 7 everyone has headed on home to their own couches to spend the remainder of the evening. With this said, yes we could’ve very well went out and shopped at 9 last night with the rest of the black friday shoppers. While I would never put those people down that love to do this, it has just never been for me.
It makes me sad to watch facebook and read statuses of people telling mom or grandma spent weeks preparing for this day and family just took off 30 minutes after the meal was gone so they could shop. To me that is when Thanksgiving turns into Thanksgetting. It turns more into a commercial holiday. It seems like a lot of retailers is starting earlier and earlier. Makes me wonder if Thanksgiving will be cancelled altogether and the official holiday will be called BlackFriday, or should we say BlackThursday?
I love deals as much as the next person and with the way the economy every dollar counts. I love giving way more then I love getting. I have always been that way. That is why I LOVE LOVE LOVE the internet! It gives me sites where I can stay in and still have wonderful savings. My newest favorite site is SPREADSAVE it has everything organized so you don’t have to search for the best deals out there. Not only do you save money when you buy something through spreadsave but you also earn money when you buy and there is more. You can share these deals with your friends and if they buy something you earn money as well. I LOVE it! I am sure my description didn’t do it justice. Check out their about page to learn more!
So today I will spend the day in taking it easy. I won’t fight the crowds, I will spend another day being thankful for the roof over my head, the clothes on my back, the husband I have and the furbabies around my feet and beside me
I eventually will go out shopping because I love to do it.
Whatever you decide to do I hope you are safe and find lots of great deals!
until next time –Tabby
