Don't get me wrong. I'm all about a deal. I've been known to stand in that endless line of people at 3:00 in the morning on Black Friday. I've felt the rush of excitement in the midst of the freezing cold with my hot chocolate in hand, just hoping to get that "Amazing Deal"...and I loved it.
The big difference was, Thanksgiving was over. The dishes were piled in the sink and the leftovers were in the fridge...rather than still sitting on the table.
It seems like there are so few days when families have the opportunity to be together...REALLY together without the rest of the world getting in the way. Now it seems as though one more day will be falling by the wayside.
I'm all for the blowout sale and I can't blame anyone for loving the thrill of the chase. This Thanksgiving though, when 5:00 rolls around, I plan on sitting around the table to enjoy what we have - instead of standing in a line in hopes of what we can get.
