Yesterday my sitting in the cold didn't get the Hatchimal for my 4 year old granddaughter, but I did score the second of only two available of the sought after Nintendo for my son-in-law. Going to be at Toys R Us at 6 a.m. for their opening at 7 a.m. to see if I can get a Hatchimal there. Going to meet my BFF around 9:30 to go to craft shows. Out to dinner for my DH's birthday this evening. Have a lovely Saturday. Sat, 3 Dec 2016 05:38:09 EST I am going to be cold! Instead of jumping on the treadmill now, I am going to Target at 6:30 a.m. to stand in line until 8 a.m. to try and get two items. Wasn't going to do it but am feeling sorry for my daughter and her DH. She has stopped every day before work for a couple weeks and my son-in-law has gone twice but items not there or not enough. So ridiculous what marketing does at Christmas time. My 4 year old granddaughter is asking for this toy. Have a lovely Friday.

As we grow older, and hence wiser, we slowly realize that wearing a $300 or a $30.00 watch - - they both tell the same time.
