Thanksgiving, Black Friday Chaos, Wedding Anniversary

>> Friday, November 25, 2011

Hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We stayed home this year and had duck, dressing, pecan pie, macaroni salad, pintos, toast, mac and cheese, and maybe something else. We decided to skip the turkey this year, husband said that no one eats it anyways. I had bought three ducks, and cooked two of them. The other one is in the freezer for some other day. Duck is a wonderful alternative to turkey. What all did you have and do on Thanksgiving? Here is the picture of our dinner. Nothing fancy I remind you:

We decided to go to town last night about 8:30 p.m., and maybe we have learned our lesson about going out on the night Black Friday decided to get moving along. As with most places, stores were opening earlier. Deals at Wal-Mart started at 10:00 that night. Tons of people were all around, oh my. We had planned to buy a few things that we seen that were going to be on sale, but choose to get products that were not actually on sale. Yeah, we had to pay more for them, but it beats the hassle of all the people. I even felt that it could get dangerous for the family. We had brought the boys with us as well. People were starting to get itchy for items with two hours or more to go. They were giving us funny looks as we were headed to the checkout lines. They were wondering if we had gotten Black Friday deals, or just what we had to begin with. People were even getting angry for all kinds of reasons. I had saw a man get in his truck to leave, and after waiting about five minutes for his woman to get in the vehicle, I saw that she had a depressed look on her face. He had backed out of Wal-Mart parking lot spinning every tire he had. I knew that he was mad either at her or because they could not get what they wanted and when. My husband had said that there was one man who got run over by the crowd. The whole way Wal-Mart had their deals set up for when it was time was really weird. They had everything that was on deal in the aisles only in the sections that had sales: toys, electronics, and home decorations. Everything in the aisles were gone where the checkout lines were. Guess they thought they needed more space for check-out instead of room on the floor. I eventually had to drop the buggy and beg my way through the crowds. We have two Wal-Mart's here and I am sure that both were packed terribly.

Another thing that I had forgotten to mention was that my husband and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary on the 23rd of this month. Happy Anniversary Dear.. Love you lots!!
