The Day After The Night Before

This morning I was wrapped up in the comforter until all hours of the day, while DramaMama and her friend arose in the wee ones to join the stampede that is the day after Thanksgiving.

They plan their excursions much like the military does in the war room. Newspaper ads organized by category, store, color, and recycle content. Detailed maps of the layout of the city, Hummers gassed and running... okay I made that up, but you get the idea. Extensive lists of must-haves and gonna-haves. With 20-30 empty slots for the didnt-know-I-gotta-haves.

Upon her return, a special glow radiated from her face, then meeting my eyes, she sheepishly said, "I spent a lot of money."

I twitched my head to the side, signifying that it went without saying that our account lost some serious weight today.

"But I bought you a belt!"

It goes without saying! Don't you know us gals are experts at shopping...we're born with the 'know-how' :)

this was one year I didn't join the crazy throngs of people. I went to the movies instead :)

We both went to a movie. We saw Harry Potter and loved it.

Welcome back! Hope you had a great vacation - holiday. If you go down to my Black Friday post I can give you advice as far as BF goes.

I bought nothing for less than 50% off. I left my Hummer at home - can't afford the gas. But I juiced up my Datsun and blew around town getting a thrill per kill!

Hope you and drama and dog house and et al had a great holiday.

I LOVE reading husband and wives blogs! So fun. Her account of the day was much more fun..and detailed. At least they both mentioned the belt.;)
