a week after 'black friday'

for those who don't know, deb and i (and we dragged our sisters into it too) love shopping on black friday. (actually now that i think about it, i think maggie actually went shopping on black friday a year before we started to)

anyways, i know some of you avoid it like the plague. but being the very competitive creatures that we are, we love it - no wait, THRIVE! it's just plain fun, a lot funner than clicking a mouse. heck i do that everyday, nothing very exciting about it.

anyways, i could see myself this year getting more and more consumed with wanting to go shopping to get stuff, when i didn't really need anything, and thus not being the thankful for the things/people i've already been given.

anyways, i read this article today, that really indicted me. i guess he had the same feelings . . . well that gives me a year to adjust my attitude/thinking/actions.

read it and then comment back here. (it's okay, it's a short article)

these girls seem to know what to be thankful for on Thanksgiving.


// today i'm thankful for:
1. heating
2. christmas parties with strangers
3. healthy kids
4. stability
5. apple pie
