A Day Off

I had my first-ever Black Friday shopping experience today.

One of the outlets near me opened at midnight, so, at 12 a.m., my mom and I embarked on our Black Friday excursion. There were a lot of cars in the parking lot, but I was surprised that the stores weren’t busier. I managed to get a few good finds of warm weather clothes, and I was home and back in bed by 4:30 a.m.

It’s the first day in a few months that I’ve had entirely off from either job. Between the full time writing and editing job (which I love) and teaching, I feel like I’m constantly in motion. I know that’s part of being an adult, but it’s something I’m still getting used to. And with only 3 weeks left of teaching, I know I’ll have to get used to a new routine.

Today was about fun and relaxing. So, today, I’m just thankful I had a day off.

Have you done Black Friday before? Did you like it or hate it?

  1. Never done Black Friday, but I think it’d probably be fun with a group of girls. I think I could’ve talked my mom into it, when she was with us. Fun to get a good deal and be out in the wee hours! These days, I’m more a Small Business Saturday person, because I love to find unique gifts and support local shops when I can. And being online so much for work, I love the personal (and actual) touch of shopping in person!
