OH THE MADNESS…

Every year, Amy and I have looked forward to what has been called the busiest shopping day of the year- Black Friday! Today was no different as we braved the crowds, half awake, and shopped until we were finished. I am happy to report that today, on the day after Thanksgiving, we have finished our Christmas shopping. As the songwriter says, “It is finished, the battle is over! It is finished, there’ll be no more war!” Just for fun, I put together a little poem about today’s activities…

Four in the morning and we’re out the door
To shop for presents and gifts galore!
To Kohl’s we started, what a line we were in-
Two hours later, we walked out with a grin.
To Linen-N-Things we continued our quest
To find for our loved ones the very best.
Much gifts we bought to the store’s delight;
And when we walked out, there still was no light.
Then we started to hit some smaller stores
Which still had many gifts on their floors-
Some were on sale, and some were not;
But by this time, we didn’t care what we got.
We simply wanted to be done with it now,
The lack of sleep is causing us to bow
To the competition all around us today
We just wanted to finish our shopping way.
When the last purchase was made, we just smiled
Because of the day we have had, wacky and wild!
But with high-fives to each other as we slipped in the car,
We said, “We’re glad we’re through with that war!”
Until next year, we will rest our shopping selves,
Thanks to the fictional Santa and his working elves!
We have everyone’s presents, and this makes us glad
Because we can use a long nap, really, really bad.

  5. Juan, So glad you updated your blog. You know Amy has the 4am Black Friday shopping in her blood – her first one was when she was only 3 months old. (I remember) Did I see some scapbooking stuff among the presents? I know you guys enjoyed the day – I didn’t get Nick out until 1:00 – he wasn’t too thrilled about the crowds. But we still had fun.Love ya, Cindy
