Most of you, at least those of you in the States, are probably getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving today. Sadly this year, we aren't celebrating. My mom is not home and for us its just a regular work day. Its these days that it sucks to be in Germany. Don't get me wrong, I love it here, I call it home, and I have the love of my life, my son-shine, and my family at me side in Germany. But on days like these I long to be in New Orleans, LA with my family in a wooden house with a wrapped around porch, eating a monster of a turkey, and talking English all day.
And then going shopping with my mom on Black Friday. That woman turns into a ferocious tiger when she sees the word sale. She goes all fucking ninja on Black Friday. Its actually quite beautiful to watch. Sometimes I catch myself wanting to sit down with a bag of salty buttered pop corn and just watch her shop from the side lines. Well that and the fact that I have to physically assist her in those mad shopping rampages by carrying bags and acting as a human compass (my mom has the worst sense of direction), so my feet always kill me, even though I never wear heels - an only Converse kind of gal - and basically take every chance of sitting down I can get.
Now in order to get this homesick self-pitying me out of the gutter, you have to leave a comment and tell me all about your Black Friday purchase. Let me bask in your shopping madness stories. I can't wait ;-)
I wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving with your loved ones.
Love, Angie aka IkeaGoddess
