It just turned 8 PM ..... First time in my life I've ever gone out shopping this late or on Black Friday.  But I need that computer - please wish me success AT MIDNIGHT in finding one I can manage!!!  Midnbight!!  I'm usually in bed by 9.
THEN -oh, good grief - the Lowes in the neighboring town opens at 6AM.  I'll be there to buy some fantastic shelves.  I have several of them in my basement and paid $77 for each.  I really need more and tomorrow morning they are $44.  Wow.
Then - I have to be at church at 7:30AM to do major basement cleaning - two bathrooms and a kitchen included - and then set up all the tables for our dinner Sunday. 
Going to be a long, hard day.

My husband just told me that we were going to go out for breakfast on Friday, which I love to do. So this will be a nice treat and thanks for the past week's work! I love oatmeal and we have a great restaurant with an oatmeal continental special: oatmeal, fresh fruit, and wheat toast. It's just past 11:00 p.m. here and I'm actually starting to get hungry again. lol

I do not partake in black Friday shopping. I will be making several batches of turkey soup to freeze. Will empty the dishwasher (again) & store the large pans that I only use for the turkey & dressing.  Do a load of laundry , take the dog for a walk & watch a little TV.

GRANA  here;
As I've  written before; we do not do"Black Friday " shopping;it's either already been bought or gift certs will be sent.
NoBIG sales adertised inN.H.  A cardealeris holding  ten dayblack friday sale: lowinterst;lowprices& low lease cost lease deals w/no money down( to very well qulified buyers)
Massechusettes( just south of our cityty; things were rough &  wild.
 those locals who did shop today( began @ mdnight last night:
>>>A Wallmart in Massechusettes advertised  their black friday sale to starts @ 10PM.(Thursday) Massechusettes has Bluelaws  (no stores open on Sundays or holidays), making that against the law & barred access to the store.Those shopers showing up   early, got angry; resisted & several  ended up in jail,In anotherMass. town, A woman showed up w/a can of of pepper spray.When she got to the display of what she wanted , she used the spray to get other shoppers to move away. She ended up in jail & some shoppers  ended u in the ospital ER for eye
injuries& lung problems
>>>>Another ncident had a man shooting a gun wildly to get access o the electronic games once the box was open & available.
A man trired to hold up aconvenience store. He held a customer at knife point.Theowner-clerk beat him  up w/a broom handleSurprised.The theif got away; the customer was not injured; but I've no doubt not want to go shopping again for a very long time!
>>>>A young family ( parents & a4yo girl were shopping for groceries. I guess the child got hungry.She opened up a pkg. of dried apricots ate a few & returned the pkg to the shelf; un-noticed by all except the security guard; who treated her like a bank robber., knocking her to theground & yelling gruffly at her.The  surprised parents apologized &  offered to pay for the pkg of apricots but the amed  guard insisted that the child( who can neither ead or write  & sign a confession &  be banned rom that store" forever" Yell
The police were called;the store manager accepted payment for theoened kg. Thechild efuses to talk is crying non-stop.  
I hope this craziness was limitted to only  that one stateate. I hate  to think that holiday shopping has driven us all insane: gun shootingting, pepper spray use &  terrifying  & roughing up a toddler.Cry

Today?  It's 7:30 and I've finished the pineapple, banana, coconut, walnut cupcakes .... they're all finished, iced, covered in the 'fridge and ready to go for the dinner at church tomorrow.
Speaking of church - I'm off to do my usual Saturday cleaning and I'll get donuts for the men who will be working on the new building.

There is nothing I need or even want badly enough to get me to join the madness that is black Friday.

The more I think about this story, the more upset it makes me!  Oh my! big vigilant security guard! Pouncing on a toddler!  Instead of notifying the parents to have a "teachable moment"  He made a completly unnecessary scene.  I would never shop at that store again and would request my friends, nieghbors and family to boycot that store also.
 Did the guard feel very important nabbing that shoplifter?  That shoplifter almost got away with major merchandise! 
The child needs to learn that wasn't right but good grief! 
I hope that wasn't any of the stores I would be shopping...
