I went out this morning. Can't believe it but yes, I did. TRU wasn't bad at all. I found a close parking space, there was maybe 20-ish customers in the store around 9am?! Got batteries, bows and a couple of stocking stuffers and there was no line! Target had many more customers. I was still in and out of there in under 20 minutes with a pair of pajamas I was looking for. Barnes and Noble (in the mall!)? YEESH!!!! :yuck: Terrible parking. It took me a good two minutes to walk from my truck to the store, and I am pregnant but I walk FAST! :eyepoppin Didn't find a darn thing, but I did somehow end up with a Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks?! :o McDonald's :blush::blush::blush::blush: had a line of about five people but I was in and out of there quickly. And the gas station (hey, I'm covering ALL places I hit today, lol) - not bad either, surprisingly! Only had to wait about three minutes for an opening. :D I may venture back out real quick later on, if I muster up the energy. :P

Hubby and I went out about 8am Penneys/mall, hardly anyone there. We were in the out. We went to Sams in and out there also and to Harris Tetter to pick up a standing rib roast for tomarrow.

I went to Walmart today because we ran out of paper towels, and it wasn't really all that bad. Yesterday was way worse!!!

I REFUSE to leave the house after the 23rd! If I forgot it - I do without it! It's just TOO crazy out there for me! I like hunkering down and not worrying about the idiots out on the roads... so, NO - I didn't go shopping on the 24th - but the 22nd was pretty crazy out there!
