I never consider it. I don’t really like to shop in the first place. I hate crowds. I really hate standing in line. I didn’t bother looking at the sale flyers. I assumed that, just as in years past, I would sleep in, have a lazy morning followed by some leftovers for lunch, followed by a lazy afternoon.
Starr had other plans.
I told her that if it was important to her and if she woke herself up, to come wake me up and I would go with her. 3:30 in the morning she knocked on my door ready to get going. Damn. She had a small specific list for Kohl’s and for Target. We did NOT stand in line outside the stores, but arrived just in time to follow the last of the lines in the door. We did our business and were done before 6 am.
Back in bed by 6:30 where the rest of my day could proceed as originally planned!!
