Friday Fill-Ins

(compliments of Janet @ Friday Fill-Ins) we go!


1. Wait! Wait, don't forget to kiss me good-night!
2. I can't wait to snuggle in my bed followed at once by blissful sleep.
3. The trouble is, there's just not enough time in a day to read and blog to my heart's content.
4. All of my blogger/PBS friends live so many miles away.
5. With a faint pop, I readjusted my sore/aching back.
6. The woods, at night, behind my house are shadowy and ominous.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to SLEEPING, tomorrow my plans include watching the UGA vs. GA Tech football game and Sunday, I want to put up my Christmas tree & decorations!

Can ya tell that I'm about dead on my feet (chair)?? DH and I got up around 2:00 a.m. to take advantage of the Black Friday deals (I only slept for about 1 hour). We decided to go to Columbus, GA, which is 30-35 miles south of LaGrange. We were at Sears at 3:50 a.m.! We got back home a little after 11:00 a.m. We both ended up napping, but not very long. I'm about to fall out of my I'm off to bed. No idea when I'll be up, but I plan to sleep as long as possible!! Y'all have a great weekend! :)


  1. Wheeeew 2AM!!!! My whole family got up at 330...which was a miracle in itself LOL but we didn't get much in the way of anything...I did get a cute pair of boots that I've been wanting! We didn't get home 'til 2PM!

    Did you get your laptop? We didn't go anywhere near Walmart (it was a mad house) but we did got to Staples and I FINALLY got a new wireless mouse and keyboard! Hope you got lots of good deals for all your trouble!!!

    xoxo~ Renee

  2. Hey Lori!
    My mom was up at 2:30 am! sis and I aren't allowed to go shopping because my mom and aunt go...and get some things for us! It kinda stinks, but we always seem to forget about it on Xmas morning ; ) Last year, we got an XBox 360 and were both completely dumbfounded! We didn't have a clue! And we hadn't asked for it...they're always up to something!

    Lucky! You get to put up your tree this weekend! My cousin sells Xmas trees at grandma's house. So, we'll get ours from him next Saturday. However, my sis and I bought fake(ewwwww!) Xmas trees 2 years ago and put them in our rooms! : D It's so cool! So, my sis already put hers up. Mine might not go up till next weekend, not sure if I have the time....We also have our Xmas villages. We have 13 pieces in ours already. Our mom has her's and wanted to start Alicia and I on ours. We enjoy's tradition!

    Well, I hope you get lottsa sleep, girl!
    P.S. I got 3/4 college applications sent out today! Woohoo!!!

  3. Scratch that....4/4 college applications sent!! Wooooooooo!!!

  4. Renee ~ YAY! You got your boots! :)
    No...I didn't get a laptop after all, but I did get me a new digital camera. It's supposed to be for my b-day, but I've already been using it...I LOVE IT!! :)

    Hannah ~ Howdy stranger! How are you?
    I'm sorry you're not "allowed" to go shopping, but at least you get AWESOME gifts! An Xbox 360...WOW!

    It's so cool that you and Alicia have your very own Christmas trees in your room! Well...I didn't get mine put up this's still in the attic. DH says he will get it down for me tomorrow, but we'll see...

    Congrats on the 4/4 applications sent! That's great! Keep me posted! :)
