I survived Black Friday today! My shift was cut short by about 3 hours, but I don’t care. I survived. It was crazy, but I’m glad I had a counter between me and the customers. Also I’m glad I could come home to family who loves me very much. Also my family is so wonderful that every year I’ve had to work Black Friday I always seem to receive something special because my family knows just how much I dread Black Friday (it’s almost as much as I hate April Fool’s Day)!
This year I received some coconut cream Oreos. 😀 When I got into the car and Steven pulled into a parking slot so we could change places (I prefer to drive and he prefers to ride if you remember rightly), I at first said I didn’t want the cookies as I had just ate a slice of cheese pizza at work just about 30 minutes before; although, after the lady and her daughter in the car across from us was waiting for us to leave so they could just pull through and a guy almost ran into me before I even left the parking lot. So when we finally got out of the parking lot and to the second intersection (where I just missed the green arrow), I relented. I had to have at least one cookie. It was so good I had a second. Before long I had all four (4) he brought with him. After I arrived home, he said he had even more surprises. He bought me 2 salmon filets (one of my absolute favorite fish aside from tuna, flounder, and basa) and we were going to have Arby’s curly fries with dinner! I was beyond happy.
On to the rest of the holiday season. I have survived the biggest, baddest shopping day of the year. Now if I can just survive the rest and our company succeed in its new product line, I think we will be doing wonderfully!
I will report off and on the rest of this holiday season. Please pray for me, as I will for you, that we will both survive this holiday season!
