I am NOT silly enough to be out in the mad crush of shoppers. I don't find anything about the idea appealing. If I had my way, I wouldn't go out at ALL today, but I have library books to return. I can't imagine why anyone would want to go out and stand in line after line, with harried clerks trying to move shoppers through, with little or no staff on the floor to help answer questions, and not enough asphalt in the world to hold all the cars that need to park.
Do you get the idea that I'm not much of a shopper? You'd be right. My concession to the day will be to drag out some of the MILLION catalogs that have flooded in over the last two months, and browse for ideas for gifts.
I plan to have a relaxed day. I'll ask DH to build us a nice little fire, and I'll wrap up in a quilt, and have a mug of tea within reach. I'll play CDs and blog and read and generally do nothing! There is NO sale so important that I would participate in that madhouse.
Now, if you were going to go out, rethink your position. It's not worth your life to be out there! I bid you a sane day.
