OOOO I've heard all about your Black Friday, sounds scary! We have the boxing day crazy stuff happening here but that's about all (and thats bad enough!)

I've put the tree and decorations up, I don't have lights on the house or anything though. My little cousin does - she goes all out! but then she's got little kids so I guess she does it for them. I've got most of the gifts I'm giving people - just have to get a few odds and ends and I've got to write my cards and send them off this week. Its definitely becoming the silly season though, every weekend from now until Christmas I've got several things on. One weekend I've got something Thursday night, Friday night, Saturday night and then the choice of 2 parties on the Sunday! Gonna need a holiday to get over the holidays!

seeya all

I didn't go out shopping on Black Friday... It is too crowed and people can be down out rude. I just have to do a little christmas shopping this year. I am going to start my Christmas card writing this week. I already started decorting on friday.

I did not go out Friday... yuck... hate the crowds and people can get rude which in turn makes me rude and I don't like being rude!
My hubby and I already got our Christmas gifts for each other... cameras that were on sale as Best Buy last week. Since I really don't have an income, I don't usually buy a whole lot of stuff for people at Christmas.
though I am going to try a little bit this year.

I didn't go to the stores on black friday. I don't like crowds!

Today I needed an oil change so went to Wal*Mart and shopped while they did the oil change. There is no line at the oil,lube express to check out and in one hour I got most of what I need for DH.

Gift cards for the great nephew and great neice and will be buying holiday lunch for my employees so I am pretty much done at this time.

I still need to write out Christmas cards. They are bought and I already bought stamps so this will get done by the end of the week.

Along with holiday shopping, comes holiday giving. On Friday I will be working a fundraiser for the local Senior Alliance asking for donations to provide the holiday meals on wheels for shut in seniors. Our government assistance for this program does not include holidays so this is a very worthwhile cause.

This afternoon I was thinking I would check with Senior Alliance to see if I can put together little Christmas treat bags to go along with the meal for the Holiday. A lot of them may be diabetic so I'll have to know how many regular and how many diabetic to put together. It will add a little bit of festivity to their meal if it's ok with them.

I'll also be making donations to the local food kitchen and Operation Kid Equip which provides coats and school supplies to children who qualify for a free school lunch program.


This is turning into a real RASCALOO RAMBLE..LOL! So I'll stop and leave room for someone else to write.

Yep, I've started our holiday shopping.

On Monday, we went & bought some books we wanted.

Yes, I did a LITTLE shopping in Friday. about 9:30 I went to Fred MEyer/ Kroger & got some socks (1/2 price sale), and also some chirstmas plates & ornamtents, most of which are for a gift exchange at a party next week. Soo glad I've got everything bought for that already (now, just gotta make some pupmkin bread, and other things!).
It wasn't super crowded, but bad enough for me.
This is only the 2nd time I've gone shopping on Black Friday, and I've never needed to do the early morning mad dash thing.... I don't know if I'd want to, either...

I think I've already got everything for extended family (just little things for nieces/ nephews, siblings & parrents).

Still have stuff we need to get for DH & myself. Have to wait until payday, tho...
