So Much To Be Thankful For!

So it is the end of November. Means cold weather, dark a little after 5 p.m., football, Thanksgiving and "Black Friday"!! (The big shopping day after Thanksgiving when the stores open real early and there are sales everywhere!)

Don't get me wrong, I have so much to be thankful for. A wonderful wife, my health, a job, a computer, Direct TV, Satellite radio, a membership in a nice gym, two nice cats, two cars, things I take for granted, but I know lots of people who do not have that. I mean God has blessed me very well! That being said, I just love Black Friday.

I look forward to getting up early and shopping most of the day looking for that perfect card and gift for Karen. Truth be told, Black Friday is, other than Christmas, my favorite day of the year! Am I wrong to think that? Your opinions are welcomed!

Yes, I am a guy and I like to shop!

I think it's wonderful you are going out to search for the perfect gift for Karen. What a sweet husband you are.
I don't like to shop but my husband did. He'd be out there in the thick of things and had a great time searching for bargains.
Hard to believe Thanksgiving will be here so soon.
Have a wonderful week!

We do almost all of our shopping on-line! I hope you find your perfect gift for Karen.

Gerard is a good shopper. He always buys me good things--usually things I wouldn't buy for myself. Most of my nice clothes are things he bought for me.

Daisy: We don't shop much on-line. We did order a used copy of "Dewey" from Amazon that we are still waiting for! It's been over 2 weeks now!

You shouldn't feel guilty for the things you have. I'm guessing that you earned them. So, enjoy them.

I don't hear of a lot of guys that enjoy shopping. I'm female and I don't care for it much at all.

Have a great day. :)

Sandy--Thanks for you comment about not feeling guilty. I feel better now.

Liza--Nice try, but sorry, I only shop for Karen and our pets.

We like black Friday and Cyber Monday! Mom did almost all of her shopping online last year and got some great buys on Cyber Monday!!

Hi Karen and Gerard, yes it's hard to say that's all leaves are all in front yard alone and have in our backyard. Those are coming from our trees and our neighbor trees.
Regarding winter well, it really happens and i don't like having snow too especially i grown up in a warm weather in the Philippines but because we had a little boy who's his first snow experience this winter,let see if he enjoying it or not....we look forward with it what is his reactions though..
Anyway thanks for the visit and the comment. appreciated it.

I like Black Friday too! I drag my husband with me but I actually think he enjoys it. He is the designated bag carrier and he keeps me on track in stores since I am mainly looking down at everything all the time. I couldn't do it without him!
