Lesson Learned

I'm not sure if it's because I'm getting older and I'm running out of patients or because I'm just getting smarter. I'd like to think it's the later and because I'm simplifying my life and material things just aren't important, but well...I think I'm just losing patients. With what? Black Friday! I do love a bargain as much as the next girl but this is just getting ridiculous. Do I really need to go to "Cole's" to buy a sweater at 3 am? I was good with 6 am, 5 am that's pushing it, but 3 am really!

Saddly, yes I did partake of the Black Friday madness, not at "Cole's" but we did go the the "Bullseye" store. My Sweet Pea, my Sister, my Niece and me. There were 4, FOUR items on my list, one was sold out, one I couldn't find, and one I didn't like. That leaves one item, right? I came home with 2 bags, 1 small 1 large! Yes, I realize that is the point of the whole door buster sales tactic, I get it. What I question is my sanity when I stand in line for 3 yes THREE hours at the crack of "you have got to be kidding" to buy things that weren't on the list!

The lesson I learned, we can have quality girl time at 3 pm and shop the door busters...DOT COM at home in my pj's with coffee in hand!
