How Did You Spend Your Black Friday?
My Black Friday was pretty lazy and uneventful. I have not braved the mall or shoppes in the wee hours in years. Don't get me wrong, I am not judging. I have just mastered the art of shopping from my iPad in bed. I am an early riser, thanks mostly to my insomnia, so I am up early enough to catch the early bird specials online that they are also offering in stores. It's quite wonderful actually, with a mug of coffee in hand and the house still quiet.
Once the sun came up I went for a short walk, while the hubby headed to the golf course. Once hubby got home we started breaking out all of the Christmas decorations and putting up the Christmas tree with the girls. Yep, we have a 9.5 foot tall synthetic tree with lights already on it. It's really pretty. In the past I found the "real" Christmas tree experience to be overrated and not worth the hassle. But to each their own.
I was exhausted and sore from yesterday's events. So today I treated myself to a three hour nap! I ate an early dinner of left overs with the family, and saw the hubby and kids off to the movies, and then I ran myself a bath. I will wrap a few Christmas presents while alone in the house and the rest of the night will be spent in bed catching up on this season of The Walking Dead.
How did you spend your Black Friday? Did you have to work? Did you shop until you dropped? Hopefully it was everything you wanted it to be.
