The big sales were supposed to begin at 5 a.m., but every line was already backed up with at least 30 shoppers loaded down with Christmas treasures when we arrived at 1 a.m.
I have to admit I was a little overwhelmed.
The funniest part of the night for me was that Tim was back at the house online with the list of things I had brought with me to the store, and he was finding the same deals online.
So he would text me with an item and the price, and I would text back, “go ahead and get it.”
In the end, I stood in line for these two items.
I was more hungry than I was in need of a bunch of “stuff.”
So I left the store having spent $3.06.
It’s just one of those years where less is going to be good enough at our house.
What I really needed that night was a fun memory with my kids.
And that is exactly what I got!
We ate breakfast at J-Boys (Jerry’s) at 3 a.m., and I had more fun there than I’ll ever have in a store.
Next year, we may do this again……..
And skip the shopping part!
Have a great Wednesday!
And as you are preparing for the holidays I’m praying you’ll find the most joy when you are surrounded by family and friends!
