The rest of the country had Black Friday yesterday, but I had it today. The Black Friday annual family soccer game was postponed until today because a couple of key families were out of town yesterday. It happened this afternoon and I went to watch, but there were very few participants. Still, it looked like everyone was having fun. Heather, Jed, Sam, Jonah, and Ollie all played. They invited me to join in, but I decided that without my knee brace on it would be unwise to get out there. So I watched for a while and then left as I had online Black Saturday Christmas ‘window’ shopping to do. I know from my experience last year that if I wait another week to order things, they simply won’t be available. And if I don’t get things shipped to Puerto Rico this coming week, they won’t arrive in time. Therefore, I spent the latter part of the afternoon and early evening searching for things I think the grandchildren might like. I have some ideas to run by their parents and will hopefully be ready to order sometime tomorrow. I also spent a lot of time going through the photos from the four days in Florida. I’m trying to come up with the ‘best of the best’ from our time there. Hopefully I will have that task completed tomorrow as well.
