My poor husband! He’s trying so hard. Will he succeed? Will he fail? It must be a rough life for Vince . . having such an unwilling partner!
He’s aching to go shopping on Black Friday!
Yesterday morning as I began fixing breakfast, he said “Do I have time to run to the store to get a newspaper before you start cooking?” How could I say NO to running three blocks for a newspaper? It wasn’t the newspaper itself . . we never get a newspaper. Vince couldn’t stand not seeing the sale ads.
There are sales at his favorite stores — Best Buy, Office Depot, Harbor Freight, Target . . I’ve never seen anyone who likes to shop as much as my husband does.
He hasn’t even mentioned shopping to me but here’s what he has said during the course of the day.
- Is Chad working tomorrow? (which means . . Do you think Chad would go shopping with me tomorrow?)
- Chad, what time do you work tomorrow (which means . . Will you go shopping with me when you’re not working?)
Chad’s response was: I’m working tomorrow night but I’m hunting in the morning.
Later . .
- Chad, wouldn’t you rather shop with me than hunt?
Chad’s response . . nothing . . the look said it all!
I’ve already said to Vince “You know you’re going shopping!” He said NO! I am NOT! So maybe he will not just because he said he will not. He’s been real busy on the internet most of the day and did tell me that most of the stores had the same sales online as in the stores.
You know what I’ll be doing . . making a quilt top! You know what I’m not doing for the next two days? Cooking . . I’m not cooking anything except maybe breakfast and that’s questionable!
If you’re shopping on Black Friday, you have my sympathies! If you’re home sewing .. think about me because that’s what I’ll be doing all day!
