Well, I didn't get up too early- thank God. I got up at 5:30am, and left a little after 6am. The fog was SO bad here, we had "Dense Fog Alerts" and everything else, because visibility was so darn bad!
We went to Best Buy first, and their line snaked all the way back in the stove section, and around and around back there. But I went in, found the DVD set I wanted (Pokemon-first season), and got in line. We weren't even in the store a 1/2 hour! Whew! They were SO great with their service. I'm impressed! Makes me want to write a letter to their manager to say how pleased I was. Picked up a Lightning McQueen nightlight there, too. My friend's son will love it!
Then to Kohls-- What a nightmare! First, there were SO many people, you couldn't hardly get through any section. I finally found the throw I was getting for my mom, and then this cute little snowman pillow-thing (on sale for $12!). My mom loves it already.
(I gave it to her since she had to deliver mail today.) Then I shoved my way over to the ornaments, and FINALLY found the Fluttershy one. And a cute deer ornament, too. After I found a line to stand in (there were two, and they both snaked all over the store, so you couldn't tell which line went where), and found a cute kitten ornament while there. After about 40 minutes of standing in line, I found a sweater that I just thought was really pretty for $10! Score!! Stood in line over an hour and a half there. At 8am!!
Then I went to Borders, which didn't open until 8am (STUPID! Good thing I was in line so long at Kohls!). They made me so mad, because they had their "holiday" hours posted so far away from their regular hours... everyone (including me!) thought they didn't open until 10am! Didn't find what I went there for at all.
Went to Wendy's to eat, and their drivethru didn't open to 10, so I looked stupid for about 5 minutes (and a line started to form behind me, too). Why wouldn't they open earlier? McDonald's sure did! And they were raking in money for it, too!
