I did quite a bit of Christmas shopping today. I wasn’t sure I’d feel up to shopping this year, but I found some good stuff in the ads yesterday and got everything I was after this morning.
What I didn’t get was much sleep. I will be rectifying that situation shortly. I desperately wanted to come home and nap, but knew that was a very bad idea because then I’d be up half the night. So, I’m trying to stay vertical until a reasonable early time to go to bed.
I also got some goodies for myself today. As always, I end up shopping for myself more than I should.
My big purchase of the day was a new phone. It’s a droid – the Samsung Instinct. It’s the fastest phone on the market at the moment and so far I like it. I say that even though I don’t really know how to use some of the basic functions on it yet. Learning how to answer it is a must before I go to bed tonight. It’s embarrassing to have to call people back and tell them I couldn’t figure out how to answer the phone when they called. It does, however, provide a tremendous amount of amusement for folks.
One of my stops this morning was the local target where there was no parking in the entire lot, and hundreds of people waiting in line. I think it’s the largest crowd I’ve been in for a black Friday sale. There’s some fun involved in the whole experience, although I certainly wouldn’t want to make a habit of shopping this way.
I think tomorrow I’ll stay home most of the day. Without hundreds of other people around.
