Cooper has been hoarding tooth fairy money for awhile now, and he decided that Black Friday was the day to spend it because Harry told him there are big sales on Black Friday, and he thought he could make his $23 stretch further.
My mom and I had just spent a brutal 2+ hours at Kohls (brutal because the line wrapped all the way around the damn store-- LITERALLY-- but we had fought our way through the masses to find what we wanted, so we decided to stand in it), so I was reluctant to head to Target. For good reason, it turned out, because Target was wall-to-wall bargain hunters. After 45 minutes, Cooper finally found a Hex Bug and some Transformers, but when we got to the line, we found out his Hex Bug was $10 more than he thought. OF COURSE I bought it anyway because I could not stand another selection process.
We have been slowly getting out the Chrsitmas stuff and packing up our fall decorations, and Dorothy has been overjoyed to welcome the North Pole, Hanukkah dinner, and manger Little People back to the fold. She told me she was happy to be playing with the Baby Mummy again, and I thought maybe I should take the kids to see The Star.
After my parents went home Saturday, I loaded up my huge purse with candy and Gatorade and took the kids to see Coco, which is amazing and beautiful, and you should go see it, too.
My friend and I took our kids back to the park by the lake after the movie Saturday afternoon to run them again. Cooper spent a really long time screaming for It in the sewer, and Harry hand his friend played football on a turf field whose speakers were blasting the Badger game-- it was pretty cool.
I haven't been this relaxed in a long time.
Well, I mean I WAS relaxed. But Monday mornings come fast and early after 5 days off, you know?
