Happy Black Friday!

Done shopping? Frankly, and don't take this the wrong way, I think anyone who went shopping today needs a psych evaluation. I tenuously ventured forth to the local outlet of the evil empire for flour, yeast and a handful of other groceries and that was it! Surprisingly, the store was not crowded at all. I asked the cashier if she'd been busy earlier and her reply was sort of surprising. First off because evil empire cashiers can be a bit surly around these parts and second, her reply seemed logical. "People aren't shopping as much this year. They're worried about fuel prices."

Well, that is one thing I am thankful for here. Our utilities are covered by the government so heat is one bill we don't have to worry about here. Of course, we're still heating the monkey on our back and who knows how long that will be an issue, but here, we don't stress about the heat. Nice, because it's cold today.

Another thing I am thankful for is that my hubby doesn't read my blog. If he did, he would know that I must admit he's right once in awhile. In fact, I had to confess that to him this morning. Bummer. I got ready to take the dogs for a walk and he questioned my judgement not wearing a hat (don't own one) or gloves. I replied that it wasn't that cold and went off without them. Five minutes later ( five minutes) and my hands were freezing! Next time I'll know better.

I hope all nine of my loyal readers enjoyed themselves yesterday. We did. Thanks for reading.

I can't imagine going to the store on the day after Thanksgiving. It's a work holiday for me, so Ernie always takes it as a vacation day as well -- and HE wanted to go to Costco. I just looked at him. We went on Sunday -- which was bad enough.

Living where we do - I don't think about fuel prices for anything but driving. I never considered what's going to happen to the cost of heating. O.o

No hat... ok -- but don't you have a hoodie? And no GLOVES?
