In the late afternoon, we went home for an hour and tried to pass into a food coma on the living room floor. Well, Watson thought we must have wanted to play/wrestle since we were laying on the floor, so no napping ensued. I got up and made Cranberry-Banana-Pumpkin-Walnut Muffins. Yes, that was the combination of about three recipes. I hate bananas and their smell with a passion, but somehow, I do like them baked in breads and muffins. I was in the kitchen mashing them up and gagging, which Nathan found hilarious.
Around 6 pm, we got all bundled up to go stand in line for a TV at Walmart. I was wearing four layers, boots, hat, scarf and mittens. We went to pick up Nathan's mom and we found out that apparently we wait INSIDE the store. Would have been good to know before I dressed for a blizzard! Walmart, in general, was crazy. We got to bypass a lot of that though because we went in for a specific TV. They only had 35 of them so we had to get in line at 7 pm. We sat on a couple cases of Dr. Pepper for three hours doing crossword puzzles and reading magazines across from the refrigerator section. I started to regret shedding all my layers about an hour in. Have YOU ever sat across from the eggs for three hours? It's chilly!
That was probably our first and last Black Friday experience. While we do appreciate a good deal, we already have so much, and for our warm home, family and friends, we spent yesterday being grateful.
