I decided it would just weigh me down in the sprint for my black beauty securely packed in a Compaq box. So, I was perched outside Office Depot at the ass-crack of dawn resisiting the urge to fight off the mobs of people after MY computer! Turns out nobody wanted MY computer afterall. Go figure! Everyone wanted the top of the line computers that cook, do the laundry and take care of the kids or the televisions the size of my house so I had nothing to worry about. In fact, I think I could have slept another 8 hours or even showed up just before closing and still gotten my lackluster computer that merely provides recipes, laundry tips and only provides occasional babysitting!!! Oh well, at least now I am a Black Friday veteran who not only experienced the madness, but who survived and conquered!
And who says Black Friday can't be fun for the kids? The kiddos played with the box and styrofoam for hours while Toby and I felt completely satisfied with our first Black Friday purchase- even if it doesn't put the kids to bed for us!
