So this was my first experience working Black Friday.
I reported to work at Midnight and people were going crazy...wanting in the store.
One lady tried to follow me in the employee entrance.
They were only letting in 100 people every 10 minutes to keep the crowd under control.
It was very very busy from Midnight to about 3am and then it slowed to almost nothing.
I'm wondering if their plan to open at Midnight worked.
I think they were probably hoping for constant customers from Midnight on.
I didn't realize that everyone would be in such a hurry because they had to get to the next store on their list.
Not a fan of this....I have never ever shopped on black friday except maybe for Christmas tree decorations.
And this mornings experience has convinced me I never will.
So Thanksgiving was great.
I went by the hospital and spent some time with Shelly.
She is feeling better...temperature, steady.
She has pneumonia. Hopefully, she can go home tomorrow.
Then I went to Shannon's. I walked in to find the table set with new dishes.
Gorgeous, aren't they? She also had the matching big turkey platter.
I had seen these online at Pottery Barn a couple of weeks ago and thought,
Shannon needs those. I should have known she'd already seen and bought.
They are now on sale at the Pottery Barn website - here.
The weather was just the best on Thursday and
I got to eat out on Shannon's deck under the pergola and in front of the
outdoor stone fireplace.
It was amazing. Lots of old friends and new friends were there and my Mom.
Good time had by all.
Now I'm home to prepare myself to go to work at Pier One at noon.
My feet hurt so bad...I can't stand it.
I really don't know how I am going to make it till 5pm.
At least nothing bizarre happened today like yesterday.

Hope you are all having a great Black Friday!
