My alarm woke me at 3:50 a.m. For the life of me, I cannot remember a time that I've gotten up that early unless I never went to bed!
My sister-in-law and I met at my mother-in-law's house at 4:30 and we were off with those other crazies that want all those "fabulous" deals the day after Thanksgiving.
It wasn't nearly as bad as I had imagined nor heard. We got to the mall about 5:15 and got a parking spot right away. I think the longest we stood in line for was about 15 minutes.
By 8:30 we were ready for lunch! I kid you not. We grabbed a quick Junior Roast Beef at Arby's, recollected our thoughts and went back out to the crowds.
I'm happy to say that I am done shopping for all but 3 people. That. Is. Awesome.
Will I do it again next year? Never say never.
