What to Do? What to Do?

Trying to make a final decision about my Thanksgiving Travel plans. Should I drive back on Thanksgiving night? I HATE driving at night (especially 4 HOURS!)and I tend to get very sleep doing so. Plus I want to do some midnight shopping. I could do the Target shopping here. I could stay at my Thanksgiving destination Thursday night, take a few hour nap in the evening, and then get up and hit those sales that I'm so excited about at midnight (outlets and Target), then come back to where I'm staying, get some sleep and then hit the road coming home on Friday. Both options have their pluses and minuses. And I'm not sure which to do.

Either way, I won't be missing out on family time lest you think that I'm ditching family stuff for shopping. Our gatherings tend to break up between 3 and 4 on Thanksgiving Day, so either option is NOT infringing on the family time. What to do? What to do?


  1. Better safe than sorry. As an outsider, I'd say stay in and drive in the afternoon instead of driving at night. The only danger is not just you driving slightly tired and sleepy, but other people in the road driving tired, sleepy, grumpy and possibly drunk or in a hurry to get to Black Friday sales. Besides, if you can do holiday shopping where you're staying, then go for it.

  2. I "ditto" what Tanner said... Shop where you are & enjoy an extra night with your family! :)

  3. Hmmm, that's a tough one. Don't drive at night if you will be tired. (That's easy)

    What great sales are you going for at Target? Just curious!

  4. For Target, I'm not nearly as excited about the sales this year as I have been in previous years. I'll go at midnight, but have no urge to stand in line for hours, they've got an ipod docking station that's a good deal, Princess always like the $3.99 movies, but actually most of the stuff Im looking at is for her dorm next year. (which will not be Christmas presents). The outlets though..... scored some great deals when I've done the madness before! So I'm really considering that one!
