I have never been hugely into Black Friday shopping. In large part because Armydad was in the service industry and worked that day every year, so I had nothing to do with my kids. This year I will be at my mom’s house. My mom says my dad and brother-in-laws will watch the boys for me so I can do some shopping. But, do I even want to? Right now I am stalking an online deal that is supposed to start in 20 minutes. (I am afraid they will start early and I will miss it.) I am trying to buy a laptop. We are getting a new one for Armydad to take with him to OCS. That way he can Skype with us and he can use it for his studies. If I do not get this one (or find a similar online deal later this week) I will need to go to W*l-M*rt to try and get a laptop there… (They also have a Buzz that Thing 1 wants.)
There are so many things on my want list this year. I have to get a laptop. And I plan to go to J*-Ann’s to buy a ton of fabric. (I make homemade baby items for friends and also sell them occasionally.) I would love to get new pots and pans (if anyone has some they love, let me know!) I am going to need a GPS system when we move eventually. Our DVD players for our van broke, so I would like to replace those. And I would love to get a video camcorder. I have always been against home movies. It annoyed me watching movies of myself. But, it hit me the other day. If something happens to Thing 1, I am going to wish I had video of him to watch… (Again, if anyone has one they love, let me know!) I know I cannot afford to buy all of these things, but a girl can dream!
Edited to add: I got the laptop!!!!!!
