We started out at Toys R Us with my middle niece. Toys R Us was opening at midnight, and we thought we could get in and out in about an hour or so and still get a nap before heading to Walmart around 4:30 am. Yeah right! When we arrived at Toys R Us, we were in a line that wrapped around two buildings and took us over 20 minutes just to get into the store. However, that really isn't even the best part of the story. We walk into the store and you can barely walk anywhere in the store. We were lucky enough to get all the items on my youngest niece's list, but then we had to wait over 2 1/2 hours just to check out. We did end up making lots of friends while waiting in line, but it was just too crazy for words. Plus the Toys R Us workers kept sending everyone in the wrong direction to check out, which is why it took so very long to get out of the store. So what should have taken about 1 hour turned into almost 4 hours. We dropped Middle off at the house and then headed to Walmart. Walmart was a little bit better, but not a whole lot better. We again managed to get the gifts we were looking for, but had to deal with some really rude people again. Luckily, we really weren't looking for any of the big ticket items this year, so we still had to wait forever just to get out of the store. I know everyone is trying to save money this year, but the rudeness of some people still surprises me.
Now, I'm just trying to catch up on all the sleep I missed while shopping early Friday morning. Also must catch up on my laundry and cleaning around my house. So tomorrow my day will be spent doing laundry, cleaning up the house, and watching the Titans play the Cardinals. Go Titans!!!
I have been reading in the last couple of weeks, and finished reading Vision in White by Nora Roberts and Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead. I plan to post about at least one of these books tomorrow.
