I hate flying. I'd rather drive. I like to see the sights along the way. We did fly to Seattle in September. I slept on the plane ride there - we had to be at the airport at 3am! And I dozed on the way back, and read. My munchkin slept too.
I hate all the things listed above, and the fact that you have to show up way early before your flight because somehow the airlines have no idea how quickly they process people through security? Or how long it takes to get bags scanned? And yet, the majority of bags are on the plane, not under it, and by this point, they should have an idea of the time it takes. Could you imagine showing up at a restaurant 2 hours before your reservation and just hanging out? Or going to the movie theater 2 hours before the movie? Now that there's reserved seats, we show up about 10 minutes before it starts.
We are actually considering cruising to Hawaii because we hate to fly so much!
I am a pharmacist and used to work at a 24 hour store, so I know all about working on thanksgiving. Now they ask for volunteers. If they don't get enough shifts covered, they draw names for people to work. I have gotten lucky and have not had to work the past two years.
Yes. Totally. I hate that.
For me, I don't find the deals as good. So, it hasn't been worth my time. I'm fine staying home and seeing what movies pop up on Amazon for cheap. I already have a gift for DH, and my son bought. And most of my kids stocking done. DH wants to build a seltzer water thing out of a keg, so I don't think that's going to be Black Friday shopping. And I'm hoping Amazon has a coupon for books again this year.
I am a TOTAL Black Fridayer! I get ALL my shopping done & out of the way! I am all about the planning & have gotten some great deals in the process! The last few years, I've done about 50% online tho- so that changes things a bit. THIS year- we are out of town (flying to my uncles' in Phoenix) so that really hinders my BF shopping. I will probably do ALL online this year.
All our stuff is in the basement (tree included!) and my hubby lovey had surgery on his ankle- so it's the kids & I hauling it up... we'll see how we do! In years' past- I left it mostly decorated & just carried it downstairs & threw a tree cover over the top! This year, we have a new tree that I got right after Christmas last year since our lights were all burnt out & broken on our old one!
