Default Black Thursday

Just got back from Target. It's crowded but not a madhouse. Everyone was buying big flat screen TVs ($199+), DVD players ($19) and other electronics.

I didn't see anything I wanted. They had CrockPots and Kitchen Aids and vacuum cleaners....oh and they had Miss Jessie's. Note the word "had" because it was buy 1 get 1 free and they were all out of Miss Jessie's products.

So I went home empty handed.
Not sure that I have the energy to go to the mall at 12am...

So, people gave up their holiday to work for that? Lame.

My poor cousin has to work until 1:00 AM this morning and be back at work at 5:00 AM at Target. I think he started work today at something like 12:00 pm. His immediate fam lives in California, so he basically spent his whole Thanksgiving alone and working so people could go and buy stuff. I'm sorry, but I hate the fact that people have to work on Thanksgiving because others just have to go shopping. I know there are people out there without family and holiday's like today suck for them, but do they really have to make it suck for everybody by insisting on going shopping?

And yeah, my family is not excluded. I just got done babysitting for my sister and brother-in-law so they could go take advantage of some of the sales. I did it but made my displeasure known and reminded them how my Mom feels about it, having to have worked Thanksgiving morning, then come home and assist with cooking Thanksgiving dinner. Where me, my dad and mom are usually the ones cooking, setting the table and getting all the dishes on the table, then cleaning up all the dishes afterward. Sometimes...my family sucks. Because even though my family knows I'm injured, they still sat there at watched me and my parents (dad had both knees replaced within the last year and mom has disintegrating disks in her back) set up and clean off the table, again!

Sorry, this originally started as how sucky it is to make people work on a day that I feel should be about family and morphed into a rant about how unthinking my family is. I will end my guano.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

I agree with the last 2 posts. It's sad that Black Friday has turned into Black Thursday. If you want a deal that bad go early Fri. Don't make retail workers sacrifice their entire holiday (SO worked today until 4:30 and his entire family waited for us to get there to eat which was bad enough) for gross consumerism. Retail is often a thankless job when it comes to holidays and this just makes it worse.

Yesterday morning, while cooking lunch, I realized I didn't have the bread stuffing I wanted to use in my stuffing. My hubby said, "I'll run get it." My response, "NO YOU WILL NOT! Those people should not have to work on holidays!!!" I committed sacrilege and used two boxes of Stove Top (which we eat sometimes, but not at holidays), Rosemary Triscuits, and leftover bread that I toasted. It was just fine, not fabulous, but quite good.
