.............and I KNOW that, because although I haven't touched a rotary cutter in weeks, I still can't let Black Friday pass me by without ordering something for 50% off from Connecting Threads !
Yep, I wound up just ordering a couple of strip sets of the batiks, but that was enough to satisfy the after-Thanksgiving crazed feeling.
Cyber Monday has been pre-empted !
Last night, I did my Walmart run.
there at 4:30 p.m. and the wristbands had all been passed out to
pick up the Funai, 32 inch t.v.s for $98.00 that were in stock. The electronics guy said I could still
get the one-hour guarantee (and pick up a t.v. later when it shipped to
the store) if I got in line at 6 p.m. "Don't worry, the line won't
form for another hour", he says. Ha ! I thought I'd just wander over
and peek at the line location, and uh, there
were already 20 people or so in line, so I joined it immediately. At about 5:40, a young man came along passing out the one-hour
guarantee cards to take to the register. I sailed up to a cashier, and,
of course, she told me that I couldn't pay until 6 p.m. So, with no
one waiting to make regular purchases, I began a line right then and
there at her register, and people started filing in behind me. At
precisely 6 p.m., I paid for my t.v. and booked it on home. I went on
line and registered the purchase. Now let's just wait and see what
happens when 750,000 people all over the country do the same thing.
Think we'll get them before Christmas?
I went back today and leisurely browsed, found a couple of cheaper flannel shirts for my husband to live the winter out in, and saw that everything was thoroughly picked over. Glad that hubby and I did our main shopping weeks ago, even if we did miss the 'special' prices. I think it's kindof sad that everyone will have the same seven or eight gifts under the tree that were in the special ads.
Thanksgiving came with Jeff and Judy blessing us with two plates heaped over with goodness. I tried, I really did, but couldn't eat anything........back to the Ensure bottle ! Doctor is talking about putting the tube in the belly come December 30 if I'm not able to eat by then. DON'T WANT THAT,.........but.....what will be, will be. It could be worse.
" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???
The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31
"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4
