Happy Thanksgiving! School is finished for the semester, so time is a bit free - for the most part. I have had about enough of Wagon Wheels, specifically why your see the wheel rotate backwards, especially in film.
We normally ignore "Black Friday" as a stand against consumerism and commercialism, but there we were at 7am at Academy on the Southwest Freeway. Can we blame a pair of three year olds? Jonas is a big fan of firetrucks. He was a fireman, inside a firetruck costume for Halloween. So when I saw that Academy had a tent that looked like a firetruck on sale ($10), which is much less than it was selling for elsewhere ($20-30), we had to get it. At the same time we bought a bus tent for Rocco. These will probably be early presents. I had a few other errands to run, things we would normally do, so while we spent money, it was not shopping for sales buying, with the exception of Academy.
There was an impulse buy at Academy though. A Bear Rug dog toy for Moon Pie. It is $19 at Target, $12 at Academy. It has FIVE squeakies in it. She has already removed three of the squeaks, and loves the toy. She is currenlty asleep, cuddled up with it. There is little to unstuff in it, and it lays flat. A happy puppy dog.
It is supposed to rain this weekend, so I will catch up on household chores, many which have been delayed for months. Last year at this time I was planning some YouTube videos to shoot over Christmas. Perhaps my videos this year will be non-neighborhood related, or nothing at all!
