What I’m Thinking at the Time

  • Thanksgiving is almost here!! We are heading to NY. Though, I’m not really looking forward to the drive, I’m just ready to be in the City.  Looking forward to a stress free trip and a Black Friday shopping spree with my sister and niece!

  • My 32nd birthday weekend was fab! My oldest brother and his family surprised us and took us to lunch.  We had a great time. Saturday night we hired a sitter for RJ. It went really well! I tried to put him to sleep before we left, but he refused. He cried a little after we left, but she was able to get him to sleep. I’m glad I purposely planned our dinner around his bed time! Hubby and I had a great dinner at one of my favorite restaurants. It was even better after I received the text from the sitter that RJ was sound asleep! After that, I was able to relax and enjoy our night out.

  • I read a Twitter status from a woman who was contemplating boycotting Target because their stores open at midnight for Black Friday.  Whatever! I don’t get it.  If you don’t want to get up at midnight to go shop, then don’t! There are some people who do. A lot of people want to get the best deals they can and for some, it’s just a family tradition to shop til you drop!  Granted, I won’t be in Target at midnight. However, I have been up an out at 5am shopping on previous Black Fridays.   I feel midnight or 5am still too damn early to shopping in ANY store! LOL  However, I’ve done it and loved it!  You’re going to petition and boycott a store for  bringing in as much revenue as it can in a down economy? Hmmmm…  Why not stop there? Why not make the movie theaters stop Friday midnight showings of movies. I mean those  Sex and the City (myself included) and Twilight  groupies could have waited until 12 noon Friday to proclaim their Big or team Jacob love.  Come on people, give me a break.

My blog…My opinion…

    Jealous that you’re heading to NY for the holiday! *lol* I miss my family so much, but we only get up about 2-3 times per year. We were up at the beginning of October and probably won’t go back until Easter.

    Glad you guys were able to get out and that it worked out with the sitter! I’m still super paranoid and unwilling to leave our little guy with anyone else. I’m working on it.

      We will only be there for a few days. Some may think we are crazy for making that drive for a short amount of time, but I really want RJ to wake up at home Christmas morning. Besides I have 2weeks for Christmas, but my husband doesn’t so I we went then it would be for the same amount of time.

      We don’t use a sitter often, but I want him to get use to her so we can have some alone time every now and then.
