Can you say da "Christmas Rush" is in full swing?
I'm not counting da lolo's who opened da store doors at 5pm Thanksgiving Day but as of November 29th at 12:00am, da madness has begun. I think going be a little more pupule cause in case you nevah know, Thanksgiving is a little "late" dis year and there are only three weekends left till Christmas - which in holiday time means it's literally right around da corner!
Did any of you brave Black Friday? Wat kine deals have you scored already? You getting a jump on Cyber Monday? Did you know dat they were dubbing da term Brown Thursday as da "new" shopping day?
Wassup Wit Dat!
Of course in true WWD! fashion, it wouldn't be a surprise if I missed da biggest shopping days of da year.
Pre-Thanksgiving is already hectic in our household preparing for a Thanksgiving lunch AND dinner and to jump into da holiday spirit, we were thinking of joining da hoards of nutso people at da malls aftah our Thanksgiving obligations were fulfilled but Da Wife wasn't feeling good shortly aftah dinner so our plans were nixed.
While I was tempted to join in da fracas of Black Friday since I was off, having Da Keiki and Da Baby in tow quickly changed my mind - although they would have served as excellent fullbacks plowing a lane for me in their stroller. Da plan was once Da Wife came home we would hit a few stores dat had their sales throughout da day but low and behold, Da Wife came home early with a knockout fever. Da Baby soon followed with a fever of his own in combination with congestion and some mean runny hannah-battah drippings.
Needless to say, dis whole "long" weekend was spent cooking for an army, washing endless hannah-battah soaked burp cloths, taking Da Baby to da pediatrician which couldn't prescribe anything cause he's only five months old, shamefully having no cash to pay for parking but luckily had $2 worth of coins (pennies too) in da tray, checking temperatures every 15 minutes, getting tub baths ready to cool Da Baby down, cold compresses, dealing with whining, crying, whining and crying nearly 24/7 from both Da Baby and Da Keiki all weekend long, not having seen da outside of our walls - or da sun - going past 72 hours, having over 1200 emails to sift through as we speak and da only small amount of free time I have to myself, I spend writing a blog for your amusement.
A day in da life - of wat I can remembah right now - of Wassup Wit Dat!.
So how was your weekend?
SHOUT OUT: A belated Hau'oli La Hanau to Da Wife! No, I not going say how old she is...... bumbye I get cracks...... but she couldn't be a day ovah 21.
