black Friday shopping

I do not for the life of me understand the appeal of black Friday shopping.....spoken like a woman who has worked in retail for 20+ years. At midnight my plans are to be fast asleep.

I'm most thankful

that this year is almost over! It has most certainly been a bumpy one to say the least. I am estatic that the most pressing issue of the week thus far has been running out of dog food. I am thankful as we head into this holiday season for my family and friends without them I am nothing and not have pushed through this year. I understand feeling truly blessed

evidently C's music teacher introduced them to the concept this week so of course C is all in and and ready to try his hand at street performing. His plans were to dive in this weekend but I have suggested he work on his Christmas tunes a little more and I would take him to market square at least once this holiday season.

are herbal supplements & energy drinks a load of bull?

yeah probably but I have a favorite, a favorite that I cannot not currently find which is tragic as I head into my first week or 50+ hours of Christmas retail hell spread out over 2 jobs. I found a hopefully suitable replacement & picked up some ginseng tablets this weekend. It is probably a placebo effect but the ginseng seems to be working this morning or maybe I just got a decent night of sleep either way I am feeling particularly alert this morning. We shall see how it goes by next Monday morning

remind my to cross that off my craving list

my food cravings are pretty basic chocolate & salt, pizza at 8 in the morning, coffee,nothing exciting nothing fancy so I thought it odd this morning that I was craving chocolate chip pancakes but there it was. I used some higher end dark chocolate that we had on hand for some baking project or another and I settled down to eat and after a few bites remembered I can't stand chocolate chip pancakes they are just gross why on earth do you need chocolate in a pancake?! Like chocolate,like pancakes but the twain shold never meet on the same plate. Now blueberries are a differnt story entirely I wish we had some blueberries on hand
