There's always time to have....Fun !!!!

Hello dear world

How are you today ?? I have so much to tell you I just don't know where to start. First let me tell you that I had quite a day indeed. My day began at the crack of dawn to go after Thanksgiving shopping with my mom and dad. My nieces of course stayed at home with their mom.

Anywho...my folks and I started our day at 4:00a.m. by going to Walmart in Fayetteville, Georgia. Let me tell you the place was a mad house. The aisles were roped off until it was time for the sales to start. Every department in the store was packed with people standing in the longest lines in the world. The line my folks and I were in for digital camera's was crazy. People tried to cut in line, people were mad if they were told they couldn't cut in line even. The line we were in came equipped with a security guard who was trying to keep the trouble and mess from starting. A few women tried arguing with the security guard but they lost. Some of the departments opened up while my folks and I were in line and the sound in the store was like the Running Of The Bulls in Pamplona it was something. Walmart was flooded with wall to wall people from the minute we entered the store to the minute we left. I never saw Walmart like I saw today.

Anywho...after Walmart my folk and I went to Toys "R" Us and let me tell you the store was full of people as well. People were shopping for this,that and the other. I stood in line for most of the time which was something. Two women did cut in line ahead of me but I didn't say anything. I got out of line however and I went to a much faster line.

After Toys "R" Us we then went  JoAnne's which wasn't packed at all. It was nice going there. I got to look at all of the many Christmas decorations and then I picked up some Christmas stickers on my way out. While I was in JoAnne's there was a guy there who was trying to flirt with me but I was really rude to him because he kept asking me if I spoke Spanish which is something that irritates me the most. I know I shouldn't have let it upset me but it did. I know that I have to work on my attitude it will just take some time.

Of course after JoAnne's my folks and I then went to a place called the "World Market" next door to JoAnne's in Fayetteville. The "World Market" is a store that feels like you got on a plane and went to another part of the world. They have items from all over the world. While I was in the store I picked up some Grand Belgian Chocolate Truffles and a Brazilian Cilantro scented candle that I liked and some emergency chocolates in a box.

Then after we left the World Market we then went to Belk where I purchased my nieces Christmas gifts. I saw a light up aquarium that I'm sure my youngest niece will like. Then I saw a sweater that my oldest niece told my mom she would like and so I purchased it for her for Christmas. Yes my dear world it was quite a day shopping for me but I had a really nice time.

After shopping my folks and I did stop off at our favorite fast food restaurant "Sonic's" to get some food. I got an extra long Coney dog with cheese and chili which was pretty good. So my dear world how was your day ???? Did you do any shopping today ?? I do hope that you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving I sure did. I also hope you enjoyed your day after Thanksgiving I did indeed. I will have to finish the rest of my shopping another day.

All in all I had a really wonderful day. That's about it for now. I'll talk to you again soon.

It's time to relax after all that fun....so byyyyye !!!!!!!!!

Let me say this . . . . . Are you Crazy to go to these sales?  LOL  I wouldn't be caught dead at 4am in a Walmart especially.  Being around tons of people shopping is way less than fun for me.  Hope you had lots of fun.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend, I'm sure shopping. LOL

Monae' it was nice to get to know you in the chat room last night.
Can't believe you shopped on Black Friday. Did the bargains you got make he effort worthwhile.
Only reason I would get out of bed at 4 am would be if the house was on fire.
Nice journal I went back about ten entries.
Have a nice weekend, Bill

I have to say you are more brave than me.  I was fast asleep when you were fighting crowds.  You went a lot of places.  Did you get a coupon from Lisa for the World Market?  Have a good evening. : )

You are one brave woman.
You could not have PAID me to go in those crowds.
I did go out but it was just for lunch and the grocery store.
We just don't do Christmas anymore.  
That reminds me... I have to put the Grinch on the front of my Jeep tomorrow.

Glad you had a good time!
