two weeks?

Okay it really doesn't seem like it has been almost two weeks since my last post! Work has been crazy and after sitting in front of a computer for about 9 hours a day the last thing I want to do is to sit in front of this one at home.

Knitting for me is going well. I am working on a few little things for Christmas. Nothing big to undertake. I am excited about being able to go to the Fiber Factory again. I haven't been there in a while.. money has been to tight... and it is best to avoid all temptations!

My sister's and I are going to do Day-After Thanksgiving shopping again this year. Last year was awesome. We hit the three big stores last year seperately at 6:00 am. I was chosen to go to Wal-mart to get a power wheels for my sister. I was in and out of there by 6:20. Then back to Best Buy to pick up my older sister and off we went to Circuit city to meet my middle sister. She was out of there by 6:45...(would have been earlier had the sales person in the stereo area told her that she needed to pay for the sirius units. So, by 12:00 we had hit 14 different stores... It was amazing...
The best part of it all is on Thanksgiving... when we eating pie and looking through the ads. We then cut the ads up and make pages of all the stores we need to hit to. Then we cut apart the ads and paste them into little "purchase books" . When we get all the pages pasted up we decide on priorities and decide which three big ones we need to go to first and where we will meet up at.. no big bulky ads to carry around, no forgetting what we want to buy!


Well, that is about it for know! Happy Knitting!

wow, my husband and I have made it our tradition to always do day after Thanksgiving shopping- we had to break it this year since we're in seperate states right now.
You ladies are thorough though. I think we'll have to adopt the shopping book into our ritual next year.
Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Shopping :-)
