November Twenty Seventh

Christmassnowmanwithstickarms

BRRRRRRRRR… I’m freezing…. It’s 46 outside and 68 inside, but I’m shivering…. Love it though, better than roasting in the 100’s…

The four days of crazy Christmas shopping are over and only three more days to go til I get a day off…. I’m tired today… and I have a headache… We got tore up yesterday but didn’t make our day in sales… we made ten times as much as they expected us to on Thursday… Saturday morning after is usually pretty slow but we had a few customers first thing at 7am who were still mad from yesterday that they didn’t find what they wanted as we ran out… and by 11am we were getting busy and they were tearing up the store again and we hadn’t even recovered yet from Friday…

Son2 is playing a computer game, son3 is playing son2’s XBox, son1 should be getting off his part time job about now and hubby has been putting up the outside Christmas lights…

I have been eating…. I have noticed since I am not tracking what I eat for the blog that I am not as aware of what I am eating and just eating everything plus there are extra treats with Thanksgiving… I am heating leftovers up now and had to make more stuffing and mashed potatoes… So keeping track of what you eat actually works….

Pedometer steps: just sharing cause I was amazed…

Saturday: 0ver 12000

Black Friday: 19090-only 1000 of these were at home…

Thanksgiving: 11206

Wednesday: 7124

Last night we watched How to Train Your Dragon… so cute and funny… son3 watched it twice yesterday and then again today… we ended up watching the new Star Trek the other night instead of Narnia… We have Prince of Persia Sands of Time for tonight…

Son3 and I got all his paragraphs caught up yesterday for his Mission report, even the one he is supposed to write in class on Monday… just have his weekly reading to catch up on tomorrow… and then Monday is back to school for three weeks and then they have three weeks off for Christmas…

I’m off to switch the laundry around and eat dinner…

That is interesting the store did great on Thanksgiving, but not quite the day after Thanksgiving. I hope that won't be a trend to open up on Thanksgivings in years to come. My niece was all upset because she went to Target yesterday to try to get one of their deals on a 40-inch TV. She was 200 in line at 4:30 a.m. (they opened at 5) and it was 31 degrees outside. She asked one of the store people how many TVs would be available and they said 50, one per person. But it turned out groups (families) bought several stating "one per person" but counting young kids, etc as that one. She had to leave the store before long because she was getting so upset. She figured they were buying them at a great price and then re-selling them elsewhere.

That is good your kids get 3 weeks off for the Christmas break!

Linda you are doing great taking things in stride with the angry shoppers. I saw a few of those on Black Friday too. It was my first shopping experience on that day and I thought it was really fun for the most part but I know the retail workers were overwhelmed. Hope you had a great holiday with your family.
