It's Thanksgiving. I suppose I should post something about thankfulness, etc.
But truly? It's been a long day (or two - since surely you have to count the "prep" that goes into Thanksgiving....even if you aren't the cook). So right about now, I'm merely thankful that it's almost over.
Yes, yes. There is plenty I have to be thankful for (and I am); but right now, I'm just too tired to enumerate them. Besides, the list would probably read like all the others you have already read - friends, family, etc.
My current thoughts are centered on Black Friday.....THE shopping day of the season. Usually, I don't bother with it. Mainly, because the crowds and noise irritate and because I know that as Christmas draws closer the deals will probably mount. Besides, Cyber Monday is more my style lately (i.e., meaning that the older I get the less patience I have with the general public).
But with the prospect of having guests until Saturday, I'm figuring I may need to escape for a bit. I find myself wondering just how bad it could possibly be early tomorrow morning? Say 7:00-ish? (Because even I am not desperate enough to get up at 4:00 am! or earlier!)
What about you? Are you going to be joining in the frenzy for the deals? Or just to escape for a bit of "alone" time?
But seriously, I hope you have had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you know that I have counted each and every one of you as a blessing this year.
