Bittersweet Thanksgiving

Well we survived Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday & Cyber Monday!

Thanksgiving was very odd this year … I was happy to finally get to sit at the “adult” table but, the cost of doing so (the death of my Grandma in August) was too high. I still went all out and we in invited my uncle for dinner because I know that is what my Grandma would have wanted. My uncle however, must be lonely living on his own because he talked my freaking ear off.

I purchased $400 worth of clothes for less than half the cost from Kidlet’s favorite clothes store on Thanksgiving, I shopped the Amazon lightening deals on Black Friday for DVDs, Overstock on Cyber Monday for a video game and EBay for Vera Bradley 70% off. So, other than one purchase I need to make on Zappos for Kidlet my shopping is all done.

Last night I finished editing the header image for my winter layout in Photoshop Elements (Amazon deal 49.99!), uploaded it & installed my snow plugin because I just couldn’t resist it. Later when I get home I will be adding my Project Life Tuesday post since I’ve actually been working on it lately …. Because I have been procrastinating on all of my homework but, that is another story completely!

I am a widow, mom, and college graduate in her mid-thirties looking for a simpler life since my nest has become empty. I love reading smutty romance novels on my Kindle, have a Netflix & Hulu addiction and am a self-confessed cat lady.
