Black Friday

I love today...I don't know why...I rarely venture out to the stores. Today, I did decide to go out and get just a few things. I wanted to get some Christmas decorations mostly...we have a pitiful amount. So, Eve and I headed out to the stores. We were driving and she said to me "Mom, Do we need any doorbusters, really?". I almost wrecked the car...she thought doorbusters were an actual item the stores were selling. On that note, CRH just called to tell me that a poor Walmart employee got trampled (yep, I said trampled) to death this morning...seriously people...that's horribly sad...and I'm sure Walmart's fault in some way.

We left our shopping and went up to Sunset Beach to watch part of the Triple Crown of Surfing competition...it was awesome! OMG...the waves are amazing. The guys are actually taken out via jet ski and then they surf these immense waves. I am officially a fan of surfing. We are going back Sunday.

Usually I decorate the house today for Christmas...it's a project (typically)...one that takes ALL day...literally. Not so much this year...took about 20 minutes and that included fully decorating Eve's tiny tree for her room. I do enjoy the simplicity of 900 sq. ft. from time to time.

I know...I still hate them...just not the employees. They are THE Evil Empire after all...
