Black Friday

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my son.  We drove to be with our friend Laurel and her family in Carlsbad and with horrible traffic it took a whopping 3 hours to get there but we had a ton of food and laughs and left well rested only to have the drive back take 2 ½ hours.

When we got home we plopped down on the couch to watch a little television and before we knew it we were attacked by commercials for Black Friday and there was nothing for us to do but jump in the car and head out to the Camarillo outlets and do some shopping. 

We left home at midnight, got there at 12:35, found parking at 1:15 and just arrived home at 8 AM.  It was a long night but what a great time we had.  We shopped, hung out, talked and laughed and it was truly a night we will both remember.  I cherish our adventures because he is growing up fast and soon his adventures will include me less and less.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy the long weekend.  Safe travels to everyone who is heading out or coming back.  It is officially the beginning of the holiday season and I hope it is safe, happy and peaceful for us all. 

I will be back with a fresh blog on Monday and will tell you all about my date from Saturday night.  This one could be interesting and by interesting of course I mean I am going to keep the faith.

Shabbat Shalom
