Since Charlotte left with Nana and Papa, I have accomplished a lot. Friday and Saturday, I got ALL of my Christmas shopping done and this morning more than half the gifts are wrapped and under the tree. No, I am not bragging or sharing these details to make you feel behind. The reality is when a 2-year-old is not sharing your space you can actually focus and complete a variety of tasks with little interruption. Thanks to the swing, jumper, Bumbo chair and Boppy pillow for their supporting roles where occupying the 4-month-old still here is concerned. Back to Black Friday. Dave, Thomas and I breezed into Toys R Us right after the doors opened at 5am. I have taken part in many a day after Thanksgiving shopping trip and I must say this year was the busiest. Every aisle in the store was filled with not just shoppers but shoppers with their hands full already in line. That’s right. The line snaked through nearly every aisle like a Disneyworld layout. Thanks to husbands everywhere, like Dave, who waited and waited and waited as I ran around frantically searching for the on-sale kitchen, buy-one-get-one child safety signs and the all-in-one nursery center. Then it was off to Target. Again, we walked in right after the doors opened. And I got it! The last Little Tikes digital camera on the shelf. Then the store employee told another shopper there were more in the back. Guess it wasn’t necessary to rush! But all that exertion made the IHOP breakfast that much sweeter. Six hours later we were home. And I took a 3-hour nap.
