I'm thinking of shopping on Thanksgiving. I am newly separated. My family is doing thanksgiving dinner this weekend because my sister is in town, so it seems pointless to drive 2 hrs there in a couple of weeks. My mil will be hosting for their family so I'm thinking my kids should go with their dad. That day will be the only break I have from my kids that weekend and it would be nice to get a jump on my Christmas shopping. Am I being selfish to go shopping that day?
