I'm dropping shopping

OK, so I’m a heretic.

I did not rise early this morning to join the teeming masses to worship at The Church of Fifty Percent Savings. I know I probably should, but I also know the place was going to be filled with hypocrites that only show up one or two days a year. And I can always tell that most of the kids and husbands are there only because mom made them come.

Sure, the place has a nice parking lot and even serves coffee and snacks in a food court, but really, it’s just beginning to resemble a mega church more and more each year. It makes me think they only want me there for my money. So this year, I’m staying home.

I doubt that they’ll even miss me.

I didn't join the masses either, but then I'm not a huge fan of shopping, preferring instead to shop online when I need. Love the Target balls though.

Me neither! I just can't stand the crowds and the lines. As a matter of fact, no on in my family goes out shopping on Black Friday! Hummmm it must be genetic!
