Yesterday morning my computer contracted a virus. It was brought on by a worm. Who does this? And even more importantly, WHY would someone do it? My sweet hubby stayed in my office ALL day long trying to get it fixed. He ran this and that and the other thing. Finally, after many hours of sitting and waiting and wishing, it was nearly cured. I say nearly only because there is an application that I can't use, but hopefully, his brilliant mind will figure that one out today.
Suz, Crystal, a friend of ours, Teresa, and I went out on Friday shopping. With my kids at the ages they are, I really didn't have a huge need to be there when the sales started. But it is as much a part of my holiday tradition as anything else, so of course, I didn't miss it. I was at Wal-Mart at 4:30. Suz and Teresa never even went to bed. I think they were at Old Navy or somewhere at 2:30. My age tells on me when I don't get my sleep, so I stayed at my house and slept and met up with them at Wal-Mart.
I thought the crowds were just as huge as they usually are -- and just as annoying. What's the deal with people overlooking the personal space of others? The stores were so hot and I felt like the swine flu virus was just floating in the air. Are retail stores in cahoots with doctors? I don't know, but it sure seems so. The good news was that there were lots of places to sit and take a break. The bad news was that there was always someone else sitting there.
I was so exhausted after 18 hours of straight shopping that I didn't feel like I could safely drive the 50 minutes to my house from hers. Instead I spent Friday night at her house. When I got to bed, I was so tired that it took awhile to fall asleep. The next morning when I woke up, my biceps were sore. I guess from carrying all the stuff around.
All in all, it was great fun. We shared many laughs and took in some amazing people watching. So Day After Thanksgiving Shopping 2009, done.
Jeff and I went to Ronnie and Nan's Saturday night to watch what ended up being an awesome Georgia-Georgia Tech game. My stomach was in knots the entire night. This was a biggie. Thankfully, the Dawgs came out on top. Nan made delicious chili with all the fixings. She's such a good cook. She had all of her Christmas decorations out and they were beautiful!!! She said she had worked so hard that her back was hurting. If you happen to read this, thank you, Nan, for a usual good time!
I have a luncheon today with Suz and the other girls I work with. It's in Buckhead and it'll be nice I'm sure. Maybe I can get a picture to share with y'all.
Hope everyone had a good Turkey day. We sure did.
Till next time. . .
