I love Thanksgiving weekend because it is a nice break from work, and it’s a nice time to spend some time with family. However, 4 days does tend to drag on, and I don’t know about you, but here is how I spent my Thanksgiving weekend.
I did a lot of eating! Starting on Thursday, I spent a lot of time eating. In the morning I helped get the turkey ready with my wife, and then we headed over to my aunt’s house for dinner. It was great to see all of the family, and even better to enjoy the food. I love getting together with family because everyone brings such different dishes. I got to have a little bit of everything, and I promise you I filled my plate more than once.
I’m not going to lie, but I was one of the millions of shoppers who shopped on Grey Thursday this year. I actually don’t mind going shopping on Thanksgiving night, and I don’t know what all the fuss was about on the news.
Instead of waking up early, I got to eat dinner, and then do some shopping before I went to bed. I found it to be incredibly convenient, and based on what others in line were saying, I think they found it convenient too. My wife wanted to do Black Friday shopping last year, and staying up until like 4am was terrible. This year I was back home and in bed at midnight.
That’s not to say we didn’t go out again on Friday, because we did go shopping that day too!
But you know what, I did spend a lot of time being bored over the holiday break. It wasn’t a bad thing – it was nice to have a break from work. The trouble is that I found myself wasting time playing on sites like JackpotCity Online Casino, which cost me a few pennies. That’s okay though, because in the end it was worth it!
