The day after...

You should have seen the food yesterday. Holy cow. Two turkeys, two hams, three kinds of dressing, three things of mashed potatoes, three pumpkin pies, two sweet potato casseroles, three cranberries, green bean casserole, cherry cheesecake, cookies, jello salad, six bottles of wine. And….twenty six people. All of my sister in law’s family came, except her brother and his wife. One of her sisters brought two young soldiers from Fort Sam. We had a blast. And I snagged enough leftovers so I don’t have to cook tomorrow, which is good since tomorrow is my decorating day. I’ll put up the tree, take down everything that isn’t Christmas-related and put up all my Christmas decorations, get out my Christmas plates/glasses/silverware (yes, silverware.) I worry about the kitten – it’s his first Christmas and he’s kinda rambunctious, so I hope he doesn’t mess with the tree. The other cats have all been good with it.

I’ll go to the grocery store, but none of the Black Friday specials were good enough to tempt me. Okay, Target has $30 microwaves and two portable DVD players for $100. But the crowds – ugh!

It’s going to be rainy today, and cooler, and I’m expecting a call from my agent, so it’s a good day.

How was your Thanksgiving, and did you get any good bargains today?

Sounds like a fun Thanksgiving. We ate lots. :-)
NO special would get me out into the crowds today.

We ate tons, too. I tried to get a laptop at Wal-Mart yesterday, but they were out by the time I got there.

Glad you're home, Trish! Sorry about the laptop! Fortunately, the one thing I was tempted to get up early for - the microwave - was still in stock today.

We did look at new iBooks for Fred at CompUSA....when I sell, I promise I'm getting him one. And Josh a new amp.

Geez, I got up early on Thanksgiving day and went to K-mart for a buch of BOGO sales, and Baby chouc chous for my girls, only 19.99. Then black Friday got up and went to Wal-Mart for a few gameboy advance SP's but they were sole out when we got there at 4:30 am and the sale wasn't even suppossed to start until 5AM. Did manage to buy 2 RC cars for the bpys, some cabbage patch babies for the girls, an mp3 player, jeans, sweaters, pj bottoms, shirts for my oldest, my little pony stuff, Bratz dolls, barbies, army guys, and some other stuff LOL I spent 900-ish this weekend. Eeek! But Christmas presents are all done!!!
