Cameron, Thanks. We go very early and leave about lunch time when it gets very busy. Works for us.This is what we have to look forward to.

There was a line of 150 people at the KB Toy Store at 5 a.m., a constant crowd at the Keeaumoku Wal-Mart, which started last night, and eager shoppers filed into Sears at 6 a.m.

Corazon, when my second baby was over-due (10 days with both girls), I got on my hands and knees and paste-waxed and buffed my hardwood floor. I didn't really need a buffer, as my belly dragged the floor as I moved along.
When my oldest had her baby, he was 10 days late as well, so I just figured we aren't average when it comes to our gestations dates. When my second daughter had hers, the doctor tried to hurry things along, but little Jesse came out when he was good and ready...10 days late.
I'm not overdue yet, just overdue with shopping for the baby. I've got about 2 weeks left but just bought the car seat today. I feel like I should have done it a couple weeks ago, just in case. But we have most of the stuff we need, and the things we don't have yet we can live without for a little while. The car seat was the big one though! Funny about you buffing the floor, I bet it was that nesting urge kicking in, I get it every now and then but then just end up exhausted soon after I start a project like that. I guess I just keep thinking since our first was a week late, this one will be too but that may not turn out to be true at all! This baby might come tomorrow for all I know, but at least we have the car seat now.

Okay, enough hijacking of the topic...
Just found out DH is working tomorrow too. 48 hours without him. Don't know what we'll do tomorrow. Something fun. Tonight, Aidan and I went to Starbucks for a hot chocolate, he loves the stuff, and we sat by the fireplace they have. We had such a nice time hanging out and playing, we were there for almost an hour. It was record time with a 2 year old, then he fell asleep in the car. Bless his heart.

Just a regular old weekend for us. I worked on schoolwork, and I graded some papers today. I spent way too much time on the computer (a lot of it for school). Tomorrow we have church in the morning, drama practice at 4:30, and then church. After that, grading papers and doing lesson plans for the week.

I left the house at 5:40 a.m. on Black Friday, hit Kohl's, Sears, and Foley's, was done by 9:30 a.m. and had done some serious damage to whittle down my Christmas list. I then had to conquer Walmart for foodstuff and stocking stuffers.
I'm now decluttering the house before I bring down the Christmas decorations from the attic. Today I'll conquer cleaning the garage out before the attic adventure begins.
I think I'll be ready to go back to work tomorrow to rest! I feel so much better, though, got so much done!!

They do appreciate my cooking, DC. Last week I made them a blueberry crisp on Wednesday, because it was the last day that our temporary employees worked before getting laid off for the winter.

Today, I also have chores to do like picking up the last bits and pieces of summer lawn furniture, lawn tools, etc. before it snows tomorrow. I don't blame you for not stacking the firewood. It is my least favorite chore.
