I woke up at 5:30 on this Black Friday. Oh, I wasn't heading to buy anything. Scott was going to work and we were staying at his parents house. I woke up from the alarm and Natasha the dog slowly creeping in my space. I dropped Scott off and went home and went back to sleep. I was quite tempted to go shopping considering every tv and radio commercial I have seen or heard for the past week has been taunting me with sales and deals. I was more tempted to sleep.
A couple of weeks ago the news featured a few stories about people who are only keeping what is essential and keeping their belongings to less that 100 items. I thought that was just awful. I like stuff. Besides, in beads alone, I would be so far over its a joke. I just like stuff. pretty stuff, shiny stuff, things that bring back memories, blah blah blah. When they showed these people's apartments, well it was just sad to me.
So I didn't get rid of all my stuff (although I am on an eternal quest to become organized and neat....G-d help me in that endeavor). I didn't buy any stuff either. I know exactly what I want and am saving for. I am trying to know what I already have and where I put it. I am sorry to say that I will not be spending $689 or whatever the projected amount per buyer this season is. I encourage you all to shop or minimize or organize or whatever it is we are supposed to be doing and not doing all at the same time. All I know is, I hope we all get what we want!
