Zoom…and it’s gone.


Does anyone else feel like that long weekend zoomed by in a flash? I could really use another day off – I did NOT want to get up and get moving this morning. It’s after noon and I’m still sleepy! 

As quick as it was, it was an enjoyable weekend. I had T’giving dinner with my parents, my sister and her husband, and my little tribe. Friday…what did I do on Friday? I don’t think I did much of anything…Oh, I did run a few errands and then hit a couple of stores in the afternoon for some Black Friday deals – I got a few things but I really wasn’t in a shopping mood.  Then on Saturday, I did shop some more but again, didn’t get a whole lot. I think I’ve gotten spoiled by online shopping because it seems I can get a whole lot done in just a few clicks, all from the comfort of my couch (which I did this morning at 5:30 am. Cyber Monday is the best Monday!). Saturday was a gorgeous, sunny 75 degrees and then yesterday turned cold and windy and gray. I stayed home all day and piddled around and took a nap. I discovered that I need a few hours every Sunday to just be a lazy slob or else I feel like I didn’t have a very fulfilling weekend. I typically spend all day Saturday running errands and catching up on housework, just generally on the move the whole day. I need my Sunday downtime – it recharges my batteries for the upcoming week, and also if I don’t get that, by Wednesday or Thursday I am CRANKY. It’s for everyone’s benefit, really. 

I gotta wrap up this riveting post because I have a boatload of work to do here at my day job. Just wanted to pop in and say I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Also, are you into Black Friday shopping? Or are you more of a Cyber Monday shopper? Do you get rush from fighting the crowds and scoring the best deals early on Friday or does the thought of that make you shiver and duck for cover under your blankets? I don’t mind getting out later in the day on Black Friday, but I can’t handle those crowds. I’ll stick to online shopping thankyouverymuch. 

Oh! PS. I looked at my blog on my phone over the weekend and saw all the ads…Good grief, what a mess! I don’t see those ads when I’m on my desktop computer so I had no idea how distracting and irritating they were on a phone or tablet. I have disabled the ads – I don’t make enough money off of them to subject you guys to it on a daily basis. I might start plopping in a few more Amazon links, but I’ll try not to be obnoxious about it. 🙂

  1. I do love that long Thanksgiving weekend. I was so angry when my alarm went off at 5:30 this morning that I ended up hitting the snooze three times before I could even begin to deal with getting out of bed!

    Here’s to a quick and hopefully painless Monday back at the coal mine!

  2. I actually love when people put in links, because if I want to see what they are talking about, so easy. And often I bookmark the item for future gift idea.

    Very interesting that you were seeing a different volume of ads (on your desktop) than what we see on our phones. I did not know there was a difference.

    • I didn’t either. And I usually only use my desktop when I’m at work, and I don’t typically look at my blog on the weekends which is why I never noticed it before. I hate how cluttered it made everything look and the ads I saw were just ridiculous.

  3. I spent most of the day putting the house in order – our daughter was home over the long weekend and I basically did no normal upkeep. But I took about two hours this afternoon to sit and knit, and I felt like all was right in my world, which sounds like your Sunday downtime is to you. 🙂

    No Black Friday shopping, ugh. I order online, but even that hasn’t been much. I really need to figure out this whole Christmas gift thing…

    • I typically buy 2 or 3 things early on and then make a mad scramble to finish up before Dec 24th. Trying to get most of it done before the middle of Dec and actually so far I am ahead of the game! We’ll see how the next few weeks go though.

  4. I got great deals online and in store!! We needed some things for the new house so I did some research beforehand to find the best deals and got appliances online Thursday and then some kitchen things in store Friday. But no early morning craziness for me! The crowds are too much and with Cyber Monday, if I couldn’t get it in store, I got them online. Woohoo!

  5. I work for a church that hosts a free community Thanksgiving dinner–we served more than 250 people this year–so the days leading up to Thanksgiving are absolute chaos. Black Friday is my day to recharge. I eat pumpkin pie for breakfast and watch “Miracle on 34th Street” in my pajamas. I do my best to never, ever set foot in a store on Thanksgiving weekend. This year, though, I had to take my daughter back to college on Saturday and she needed to pick up something at the mall. I now remember why I try to never set foot in a store Thanksgiving weekend. I really hate to shop no matter what day it is, so online is the way to go for me.
