Quiet Friday

Standard

Yep – the day after a holiday (especially the ones that fall on a Thursday) is usually VERY quiet……………….unless of course you work in a department store where things are INSANE.   Fortunately my Mom and Dad are due back from their Thanksgiving feasting in W. Virginia this afternoon so I will not be watching Mom gathering up her “shopping equipment” to head out the door early this morning to SHOP TIL SHE DROPS.

For all of you who DO that – and can’t wait for those after-holiday sales………..BON VOYAGE!    Here’s what I’ll be doing:

Now doesn’t THAT look more reasonable than fighting for a parking space at the Mall, arguing with other customers fighting over the last purple sweater in your/their size, standing in line with lots of tired people and screaming kids just to buy that purple sweater you JUST HAD TO HAVE, fighting traffic from the shoppers AND the coming back from Thanksgiving people on the roads????   Why yes it does…………….so if you’ll excuse me I’ll go back to doing what I do best!

HAPPY FRIDAY!

Hope you have delightful

turkey leftovers tonight

like I’m gonna have!

    • Hi Rumble! My Mom brought me some leftovers from the BIG eat yesterday but as far as the sales go, Mom says “no thanks” to standing in lines and bargain hunting. Smart Mom……HAHAHA

  1. Sammy, I’m with you! And so is my human. She has never been much of a shopper. She was thrilled when she could buy things online – before that, she used catalogs and phoned in orders, all to avoid malls and crowds.

    • That’s exactly what my Mom does Summer………as long as she can phone or keyboard in her orders she’s not EVER in a store (except the grocery store of course!!!!). But even that can be phoned in these days and be delivered. Mom loves grocery shopping though – for some weird reason!

      Hugs, Sammy

  2. Sammy these shopping events you have sound like warfare! I hate sales…with a passion…I see them on our tv when Myer has a sale..peeps pressed like hams against glass doors..crushing each other in their haste to buy 20 of something they will never use because it is cheap..even though after buying 20 they have spent more than if they were even going to buy one…??? Yikes…move over gingerbread man…I am joining you! much loves Fozziemum xx

    • HAHAHA…..funny you should say that……when they were bringing in all the stuff from the car the FIRST thing Mom did was put the “Sammy bag” on the floor……I had my nose in it before they could blink an eye!

  3. I hope your mom finds a truckload of bargains today and specially some fabulous things for you! The days after a how-i-day are mostly like a howl-i-day too, because you need a howl-i-day to recover from the howl-i-day… :o)

    • It’s true……….a day of recovery is impawtant after a holiday…….the weird thing with humans is that the day after they eat like piggies they do it all over again with leftovers! What’s with that? *burp*

  4. You’ve got yourself a great plan, S. My mom is not a Black Friday shopper. Her cousins are Middle of the Night Black Friday Shoppers, so Mom will meet them for breakfast at 9:30 AFTER they’re finished shopping. Enjoy your relaxing day and yummy leftovers!

    I shall wash the floors & do some more chores & read blogs & remember our Sweet Feet…..maybe I can pop over for a nap later???

    • Hi Miss Sherri-Ellen………keep smiling – Nylablue would want you to and remember the fun times (like reading together 😉 ). I did a lot of napping the past 24 hours since Mom and Dad were gone but now that they’re home I am helping Mom catch up on my blog THEN I’ll be snoozing……first things first!!!!

      • Hi sweet Sammy you are right…I am doing a bit better today. I did some more cleaning & wshed the floors. At one point I felt like I was washing away the ‘traces’ of Nylablue but I have to disinfect & remove the Herpes Virus…so it is NOT HER I am removing. I spoke to Nylablue’s Human Dad Jon & a couple of friends…it is good to have support.
        I will have a nap later & i will think of Nylablue (& cry a bit) but I will think of the good times….reading was one of the best things for sure!
        Wishing you a peaceful weekend dear boy.
        Much love Sherri-Ellen ❤ ❤

        • It’s important to grieve as you need to (so says my Mom!!)…..so just be kind to yourself and do what you need to do – I know it’s important to do the cleaning and disinfecting – especially before you bring in that kitty that Nylablue and Mingflower are trying to find for you!!! (wink wink) I know it must be lonely at your house right now…but Nylablue is there in the IMPORTANT way – she’s in your heart and soul.

  7. Have a great day Sammy. Sleeping does sound good. We had our busy Friday morning of cleaning and baths so I am pooped out. LOL. Have to check in with vet later next week to let her know how it’s going. Hopefully it will go away soon.

    • I know how exhausting it must be there at your house – hopefully soon things will be back to normal! You’re doing great keeping up though and let’s hope it’s the last time EVER you have to deal with something like that!!!! Hope you get a good report from the vet! Lots to be thankful for…..including that you may be waving BYE BYE to the trouble very soon!!!

  8. Sammy, I should have done like you did and napped all day. My mom and I went out shopping at 7 am. My Sammy can’t wait for the Cat Scouts food fight, I told him he can bring all the leftover turnip ( ick) to toss.

    Like

    • The food fight was something wasn’t it? I wasn’t there for much of it because Mom and Dad insisted on having dinner together (imagine that?!) and then watched a movie they wanted to see….but I stopped by this morning to clean things up a bit AND I decorated the Wildcats Cabin for the holidays!!!
