Black Friday

Whoa boy! What a day!

It started off with a fabulous gingerbread latte from Dunkin Donuts.

Sam maintained a good mood while standing in line for AN HOUR at Circuit City.

Steve got an LCD TV and an iPod alarm clock for Christmas.

I got a new camera for Christmas. :o)

Steve and I both agree that the sparkly maternity shirt that says, "I've got the perfect gift," with an arrow pointing to the belly, is tacky even outside of our circumstance.

I left a "Merry Christmas" note on the window of the SUV that almost hit me because the driver couldn't wait five freakin seconds for me to buckle my child into his car seat. (It said, "Merry Christmas. The girl you almost hit." I hope he feels the appropriate Christmas guilt.)

We bought a curtain rod to match the two I bought the other day...and promptly walked out of the store without it.

Sam had a forty-minute temper tantrum until I screamed at him to shut up. Stellar parenting right there.

The laundry room now has vinyl flooring.

Our three old fish and our five new fish are the first residents of our new second floor addition.

I cried as our old and decrepit Aussie ate dinner out of his new raised dog dish...no longer losing his balance and landing with all four legs splayed out like a dog-skin rug.

There was beer with the pizza for dinner.

Steve and Sam are now installing the new TV. I plan to fall asleep while watching it.

Wow! Sounds like a crazy day. I would have loved to read what you wrote to that SUV driver... :-)

What a day! And glad to hear I'm not the only stellar parent who has screamed at their child to shut up -only I did it with my brand new neighbor outside (I didn't see him). Stellar. LOL

We went shopping too - lots of fun, lots of crazies. I focused on the fun :) Glad the stupid driver didn't hit you!
