I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and avoided overspending on the biggest shopping weekend of the year. We didn’t do much and put off the big Thanksgiving meal until Saturday. We were going to roast a chicken, but the downtown Safeway only stocked turkeys this week. I asked and the meat guy told me they didn’t have any chicken. Personally, I think they were just too busy to go grab one from the freezer for me. I can’t believe they didn’t have one whole chicken in the store. Well, a frozen one wouldn’t have worked anyway because it’d need time to defrost. Everything worked out, though. I got the roasted chicken from the deli department instead. It cost just $7.49. That’s cheaper than raw chicken ($10 to $12) and we spent less time cooking. That’s a win-win right there.
Anyway, I successfully avoided going shopping on Black Friday, but I did purchase a few things online. Mrs. RB40 on the other hand braved DSW (shoe store) and Target on Friday. That’s okay with me because she’s the one bringing home the bacon. She can go shopping if she wants to. The most successful member of our family this weekend was actually RB40Jr. Here is what he did.
Successfully avoided going out for 5 days! Had 2 playdates. Kids came over and they had a ton of fun. They were ridiculously noisy, though. Played too much videogames & board games, watched movies, read books, and lazed about. Ate a lot of food. (Well, for him anyway.) Completed the author box homework with some help from Mrs. RB40.
That’s what I call a successful Thanksgiving weekend. The kid gets it right once in a while.
