Black Friday is two weeks away but I’m already well into my own shopping holiday. I can’t even wait for Cyber Monday anymore because I fear that I won’t be able to snag the specific merchandise that I want if I wait for the day. With two days of bad weather here, I have been confined in the house and canceled appointments and errands.
I haven’t shopped without abandon in awhile and the two days of online shopping really created a dent on someone else’s (the husband, who else?) bank account. Since I also had my cooking holiday (I didn’t cook food for dinner for a week), I had all the time in the world and kept adding stuff to my shopping carts into the wee hours of the morning. And that explains why I have dark eye circles now; something that I haven’t seen in ages. Two days of hitting the sack at 3:00 a.m. proved to be a disaster, but I can’t complain since I have enjoyed shopping immensely.
I’m not done yet. But I’m not sure about hitting the malls and stores on Black Friday. If you know me, I’m a perennial late riser, so I will not really stand a chance with those big savings on Black Friday. They are good only for those who have the patience and endurance to wake up early and be ready to storm the crowds. God bless them! To be honest with you, of the almost 11 years that I have been living here, I haven’t had the chance to hit the stores on Black Friday. Simply not for me, but if it was midnight madness sale, you can be sure to count me in. The time does make a big difference. I’m a night owl, that’s why.
