I think winter is finally rearing its ugly head in Ohio. We have been enjoying unseasonably warm weather and sunshine. Now, it has been raining for three days and was sleeting a few moments ago. Time to post my Days Until Spring countdown. Alright...ALRIGHT! I’ll wait until after Christmas before looking toward Spring....if I must.
The house is as decorated as it is going to get. There’s just too much going on for me to go all out this year. I just need to store the boxes and clean up after myself. Hopefully, I can get that done before Christmas Day.
Did you go out shopping on Black Friday? I did for a bit. I prefer the midnight shift so I can get done and then go home to bed. I arrived at Kohl’s at 12:10 AM with my own shopping bag. They were still corralling people through the doors. It was fairly warm and everyone was courteous. No knives or pepper spray, thankfully.
I am a strategic shopper...no browsing for me. I know what I want before I leave the house and like a Stealth Fighter Pilot, I fly in-strike-and go. According to plan, I flew in and within 20 minutes had zig-zagged through the store and found the items on my list.
Time to get in line...
There’s the line...
There’s the line...
No wait; there’s the line...but it’s going in a different direction. Where’s the end of the line??? After several minutes, I heard a Kohl’s associate yell the end of the line is right here. Droves of people clamoured toward her voice.
I’m in line! GREAT!
The line...that I was so happy to be in...wrapped around the entire store, TWICE! Needless to say this left lots of time for browsing. I guess browsing IS for me. I was good and only picked up one item that was not on my list, a remote controlled car for one of my nephews.
I stood in line for an hour and 40 minutes. I was thirsty, tired, and more than ready for bed when I got home just after 2:00AM. Everyone was snuggled in bed except for Jordan’s girlfriend, Ashlee. She was up and ready to out on the morning shopping shift with her aunt. Good night Ashlee. Have fun!
MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!
