To Shop or Not To Shop

Happy Thanksgiving, friends!  It is nearly 10 on Thanksgiving night.  The kiddos as tucked in bed and I’m facing a stack of Black Friday ads.  Shall I venture out, or stay in my warm and dry home?

What are your plans tomorrow?  Do you go shopping on Black Friday?  Early or later?  In stores or online?  I’m curious to know what everyone else does.

I still haven’t made an definite plans.  Since I’m the sole parent right now, shopping means either taking children or finding someone to watch them.  Neither seems like a great choice.  However, two opted to spend the night at my Mom’s, so I could possibly consider taking the remaining to out to one or two stores (but not until after a normal wake-up and a good breakfast!)  Hmmm, what to do?
