The Friday Gathering for 11/23/2007 – Black Friday
Picture by: alexisfisher
I hope everyone had a wonderful and joyful Thanksgiving! I also hope those of you that braved Black Friday found some great deals and stayed within your budgets! I also hope those of you that did venture out early this morning get plenty of rest this weekend!
A yearly tradition with my wife and I is to head out early on black Friday. We enjoy the time together and the adventure. Unfortunately we didn’t have a traditional Thanksgiving or Black Friday this year. My wife has been fighting a kidney stone for about 3 weeks and on Wednesday she had surgery to have it removed. Needless to say she has been is a great deal of discomfort and not feeling too great. So we stayed at home both days. She does seem to feeling a bit better this evening though.
On one hand, we missed doing our traditional Thanksgiving and Black Friday shopping, but on the other hand it was really nice to just stay at home and not get caught up in all of the chaos.
