Cyber Monday

Were you on your computer all day ordering stuff because it was cyber monday?  How many of you spent hours upon hours just entering one order.  Or was I the only one?  It seemed everyone was online...I kept hitting the "place order" button and nothing was happening or I got a message that I could not understand.

And this was in only one store.  I was prompted to make an account - i did - then told I already have an account....didnt know the password...created another one and completely lost my order.  Do i order all over again? and run the risk of placing two of the same orders....no, keep at it and finally got frustrated.

But I decided to go to my emails to see if I got a confirmation for an order I wasnt sure was placed or not.  Alas - no email...but wait, lets check spam - bingo - there was the email saying they have received my order and will notify me when shipped.

Enough - time to go watch tv - or better still - go to sleep. Because even online - shopping is a big deal.  OK, so no waiting on lines - but the computer slowed down so much - is it really worth the savings.  Or am I getting so old that shopping is no longer exciting me the way it used to.....maybe I should just write a check for everyone's gift.

No, too impersonal....back to ordering - or maybe I will go to Toys R Us and pick out gifts for the kids....gotta be a better way to shop.....
