I will be careful I know the wheelchair doesn't matter when people go crazy. When I was preggo with my son, my hubby and I were at Target on black friday and I had to go to the bathroom no one would let me get to the bathroom my hubby got a manager and she cleared the line for me to get thru to the bathroom everyone thought I was trying to cut the line. I know how crazy people get. This year I am just going to one store and I don't have to have anything and if it seems to crowded or I don't think it will be safe we will just go out for breakfast. I just have stopped so many things I used to do before becoming ill sometimes I feel I have to keep up with old ways to still feel like myself.

Have a great thanksgiving everyone, Proudmom

I did the "Black Friday" shopping thing once -- about three years ago -- with my best friend.  It was OK, but what I had on my list wasn't in any of the sales and I had to get up at about 4:00 am.  Still, my friend and I made it fun even though neither of us were morning people.  My friend passed away suddenly this past Spring (a few months before my SjS diagnosis) so I'll be especially thinking of her and missing her this holiday season.  Sorry, I don't mean to be a downer...I'm blessed with the memories she left me with.   :)

Well I made it back home in one piece. The crazy people of walmart started the trip out rough but we then went to toys r us which was really calm with no waiting, they told us all the nuts were there at 12 am and they had to call the fire department. Then we went to Kmart and that was busy but not crazy. The whole trip has probably put me down for a day or so but we got alot of shopping done, some good deals, and the most important thing is my hubby smiled the whole time and kept saying how great it was that we can still do our annual black friday shopping together.

Hope everyone had a great holiday. Proudmom  :)

I'd rather pay a little extra and save what's left of my sanity!  :D

Proudmom -   good to hear that you and hubby had a good time sharing your Black Friday tradition shopping together.  :)   Hope you are taking it easy today.   ;)

((Blue Kat)) -  sorry to hear about your friend.  I hope it brings a smile to your heart to remember the time you DID both get up early and join the crowd on Black Friday.   Thank goodness for our memories of good times.

Proudmom, I am so glad you guys had a great time and stored up memories. In my area there was a woman trampled in Toys R Us, she had her knee broken, but survived.

I thought about going later in the day, but decided against it, I hate crowds.
