Post-Thanksgiving Thoughts

I hope your Thanksgiving went well. Mine did, although it was a bit weird-it was at my house this year. I didn't host it, we all pitched in, but it was at my house. And therefore it couldn't be Thanksgiving, because Thanksgivings are spent at grandma's house with all the relatives. My grandma, to be specific. For seventeen years holidays-most of them-were spent at my grandma's house, so now the holidays feel weird 'cause I'm not at her house. Oh well.

I also hope your Black Friday went well. I was facing the hordes at 8 a.m., but really everyone was very nice. We at the bookstore didn't get any of the crazy, pepper-spraying people (if you haven't heard of that read this). It was busy though, so when I finally got home around 4:30 p.m. I collapsed on the couch. I did take advantage of the games being 50% at my store, so I guess I contributed to the madness.

And now it's Cyber Monday and we college kids have to go back to school. Every part of my being is screaming "NO! WANT TO STAY HOME WITH FIREPLACE AND TREE!" but of course I can't do that. There are papers to write and tests to study for. December 10 is when we are officially free. /sob.

So have fun on this Cyber Monday.
