We had a nice quiet Thanksgiving Day with just our family. I wasn't up for entertaining this year. The food was excellent, if I do so say myself. I wonder why it always turns out better when you don't have company?
It's become a bit of a tradition at our house for everyone to go through the sale ads on Thanksgiving day and put together Christmas wish lists.
Then, I hate to admit it, I get up early the day after Thanksgiving and go shopping with all the other crazy people. I have found it to be a good day to get the majority of my shopping done and out of the way. I don't stand in line for all the hot deals, but I make my way from store to store checking off my list.
I left my house at 4 a.m. I stuck a few protein bars in my purse and made sure I had a steady flow of caffeinated beverages. I consider this my version of hunting. By the end of the day I was a little frazzled and glad to be safely home, mission accomplished.
