I went, I shopped, I conquered

Yes, I did it. Not only did Mom and I shop on Black Friday, but we shopped at 4:45am. The hordes of people were astounding. It was more crowded than I imagined it would be. People who found out what I was planning (shopping at 5am) thought I was crazy and said they would never do that....I told them that as long as I don't have to do it with my 3 kids in tow, nothin' scares me.

But my mom and I walked away victorious. We got every "blitz" item we went after and I've just about finished my shopping except for a few things for each of the kids and Sweet Hubby. We had a great time...even though we waited in the check out line for an hour at the Wal*mart.

Oh, and I also have to admit, we went to Wal*mart not once, not twice but three times today. Two stores, three trips. Add a few more drops to my bucket-full of crazy.

And I also have to state that it was wild crazy chaos, but aside from the one lady who (unsuccessfully) attempted to snatch my blitz ad from my basket, all the other bleary-eyed people were very nice, patient and helpful. There were no fights, or disagreements or grown adults wrestling each other to the ground for a $25 talking toy.

And now, excuse me while I collapse in to bed.

Even without kids in tow, you're a braver soul than I am. I'm glad you got some good deals, though!

I did not do that.
