Today is definitely going to be a slow-moving day! Yesterday was a looooooooong day ... DD & I met at the grocery store just before midnight to take advantage of the $10-off-any-purchase-over-$50-Thursday sale. We got her refrigerator and pantry re-stocked (she'd cleaned them out before they went out of town), did my shopping, and got everything we needed for Thanksgiving. Of course, it meant a total of 9 trips through the store ... to maximize the $10 off, we'd stop shopping when we got to $50, checked out, took the groceries to our vans and went back in to shop some more. It also meant that it was 3:00 by the time I brought in the groceries, put everything away, and crawled into bed. Thankfully I was able to sleep late this morning ... but not late enough. It was worth it, though, to be able to save some serious money ($90 plus a lot of what we bought was on sale). And I enjoyed some time with DD.
Today I'm thankful for the internet. I'm thankful for how it allows me to stay in touch with family and friends ... through e-mail and Facebook ... and now blogging. I'm thankful for the opportunities to be able to shop online ... I'm definitely not a shopper, so I'm thankful for being able to shop from the comfort of my home. I'm thankful for all the information that's available at my fingertips. Even though I have to be careful with how much time I spend online, the internet is still a huge blessing to me. Thank you, Lord!
