Black Friday Sadness

I've decided I really don't like black friday. The stores get your hopes up with all the great deals but you have to act like an animal in order to get those deals. I had my eye on a 7 1/2 Ft. Christmas tree at Home Depot on sale for $50.00 and I was so excited to have it in my home and get it all decorated. My mother-in-law and I went out on Friday morning and we got to the store 7 minutes after it opened only to find that the tree was already sold out. I wasn't even about to set foot in Wal-mart for their good deals but I did try to buy my husband the X-box 360 with guitar hero online; of course those were sold out just as soon as the clock struck midnight. As poor as I am right now with me student teaching and not working I am not poor enough to camp out in the freezing cold to save a few bucks. Oh well I guess I'll just have to try my luck at the after Christmas sales. Hopefully by next year I will have my tree.
