Never Again

This Black Friday stuff is for the birds or at least the crazy birds. I can't remember the last time I was part of a morning shopping trip on Black Friday but I can remember the last, it was last Friday.

I had no plans on going shopping, I was going to sleep in and then go play basketball around 9:00am, but Kade woke me up a little after 5:00 and there was no going back to sleep so I thought I would go see how bad it was. There were a couple of movies that Kelly wanted at Target and a gift that we wanted to pickup at a good deal there as well. I arrived about 5:45 to a parking lot filled with cars and lines forming at both entrances. I wasn't dressed, nor crazy enough, to stand out in the lines so I patiently waited in my nice warm car for the lines to start moving. When they finally did I slowly made my way towards the entrance. I was passed by many running towards the door. I just shook my head.

Once I finally found the back of the line I managed to make it into the store and the start of the electronics section where I was then officially part of the smush pit. What a mess. People will push, squeeze and manipulate there way around you in any way possible. I've never been bumped from behind with a cart (by the same person) so many times in my life as if I had any room in front of me to move to. Once I finally made it through that mess I still had the toy smush pit to look forward to. It was the same thing once again. Luckily for me I only had 6 items so I used the first available express checkout lane and I was out of there in about 15 more minutes.

I don't care what the deal is, it will NEVER be good enough to get me to go out in this madness again!

Some of you may have already seen these on Flickr or on the Photos page, but in case you missed them here is the link to the pictures we took at Megan's baptism.  What a special day that was!  I was so proud of her.
