Now, I can't believe I didn't post about Black Friday. As I was delaying the inevitable studying I have to do today, I started thinking (in case I fail life next week) about all that I have to be grateful for. And three weeks later, I'm here to tell you how grateful I am for Black Friday.
I know there's this whole campaign against stores opening early because it distracts from people spending time with their families, but from Thursday evening to the wee hours of the morning on Saturday, I Black Fridayed it up with these kids:
And I've never had a better time standing in line.
We talked about life and the future, and laughed more than we should have. It was time that we could have/should have been spending with our families, but hey, we're family too.
I may seem a little extra sentimental lately and it's because I am! I don't get to see these three nearly enough and soon both those boys will be gone, and it will just be Kar and I eating peppermint ice cream by the carton. And that's okay too.
