The Day After Thanksgiving

I won’t be hitting the stores today.

Instead, I will be doing some of the things recommended by Shawn Vestal in this article:  sleeping, playing games, reading books, consuming leftovers, and generally enjoying time with extended family. Sports will be tuned in on the TV. We’ll be passing sections of the newspaper back and forth, smiling at the antics of my adorable grand-nieces, and challenging one another in ruthless games of cards.

Shopping can wait. Small Business Saturday is coming!


In recognition of the laid-back atmosphere, I’ve written my plans out here in advance and this post will be automatically published in the wee hours of Friday morning. I”ll be sleeping in, but this blog post will have to get up with the early-risers and urgent shoppers.

  1. No shopping for me (except I MUST get to the grocery tonight). No relaxing, either. Off to work in twenty minutes because dogs and cats must be fed and cleaned up after seven days a week.

  2. Was hoping to not venture out today, but then realized one kid needs poster board. And I ran out of yarn for a project I’d like to finish. I’m wondering if going out later today – you know, after all the early bird sales- will be a better plan.
