Black Friday

For the second year in a row I participated in the "I MUST be nuts" event known to others as Black Friday. My husband even set his alarm so he could help me get out the door and to the store by 3am. He even loved me SO much that he had a 1/2 pot of coffee programed to be brewed before I had to walk out the door.

The BEST stop of the morning had to be Lowe's at 5:30am. It isn't what I bought there that made it great, but rather the fresh hot coffee they were serving at the door. God bless them! My coffee (and back-up cup in Ray's mug) had long since disappeared.

Was able to score some GREAT deals both for Christmas and just for me and although I wasn't able to score everything on my list, I'm tickled with the shopping I was able to do.

Trick or Treating 2010

Despite feeling like complete and utter doodoo I was able to get the kids dressed for Halloween and my DH (who is also super sick to the point that he's going to doctor for first time in about 6 years) took them out for Trick or Treating. They scored! Plenty of candy to rot their teeth and have them bouncing off walls for weeks AND enough for hubby and I to "graze" as well. Kids had a great time which is most important thing. Ryan had a last minute change of mind and wanted to be Spiderman w/o mask again this year. Hadley was a Medival Princess. Sick baby stayed home with sick mommy.

Blast from the Past ...Like It Was Yesterday

There are some people who even if you've not spoken with them in 12-ish years, the minute you say hello again it was like you were just together chatting last week.

So was the case with a dear old friend, Jeri Ann. We quickly caught up on the big picture topics and next thing you know we were laughing over old memories (older than I'd like to admit...dang time flies) "COBWEBS!!!" and sharing the everyday life stuff with one another. I'm so happy to have had the chance to speak with her and look forward to being in touch with her again.
