So how was your Black Friday, folks? Ours was just “another day” and that is because the husband and I weren’t into it. We certainly don’t want to put ourselves into a chaotic scene – long queues, crowded stores, etc. Besides, great deals were offered online too. Some stores actually offered the same deals that they have in stores. I’ve actually availed of some online and I willtalk about it on my shopping blog.
There were definitely a lot of great deals and they were just awesome. If only I had enough money, those affordable markbass amplifiers at musicians friend would have been one of my purchases. The husband would be delighted with it, without a doubt. But my money is simply not enough, just yet. In due time, I hope, or perhaps on the next Black
I can’t believe it is already December. Where did the time go? But I am happy and excited that it is already December because I really am giddy for Christmas. It is my favorite time of the year like I always say.
I’ve been busy with shopping lately which also includes online “window” shopping which is one of my favorite things to do.
How about you? Have you started Christmas shopping already or you are just starting to make your list? If you answer the latter, make sure you check them twice, okay?
It still amazes me to think about how much my Hubby supported my step-daughter’s musical career. She joined the band in the fifth grade, and from then on, he never missed one of her performances. And she did it all, in high school and college both: Concert band; marching band; chorus; and she even performed in the city‘s youth symphony orchestra! While she was in college, he would even drive 200 miles every weekend when there was a home football game just to see her march in a 10 minute half time show. Such dedication.
And that’s not the only way he supported her endeavors. He saw to it that she had the best of instruments. Her chosen instrument was the flute, and she absolutely aced it. With her ability, she used her talent to earn a full scholarship to university. That made it even easier for my Hubby to buy her not only a good flute, but a piccolo as well, though he wasn’t able to get her a classic yamaha ypc 62 piccolo at guitar center.
Even at the age of thirty, she’s still totally involved in music for her major in college was music education and she’s now a teacher. What an odyssey she’s had since the fifth grade, and her Dadoo – what she calls him – has been behind her every step of he way. Total family teamwork.
How ready are you for the Holidays? I’ve done shopped for some of the gifts for my Hubby and son online, but I don’t think I’m halfway finished. There’s still a lot on my mind that I want to do and buy.
I have to buy Christmas cards to send to family and friends, and I am considering contacting a local envelope printing company so the envelopes for the cards would be personalized. That would be nice, wouldn’t it?
I also need to buy gift wrap, ribbons, etc. I am already talking about Christmas when we are still going to celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow. Well, I am already ready for tomorrow since I’ve done bought everything that I need.
The Holidays may be one of my busiest times of year, but I just love it.
I was making a to-do list for tomorrow in preparation for Thanksgiving when my phone rang. It was my friend who is now residing in Michigan. She arrived here in the U.S. in August, got married in September and now they’re in the process of going through their documents for their Change of Status.
Just like us, they hired one of those trusted immigration lawyers to make the process a lot easier and worry-free. They’ve done submitted their documents and are just waiting for the mail telling them the next step.
She’s anxious alright and I pretty well know the feeling because we’ve been there, and done it.
