    It May Only Happen Once Every 8 Or So Years

    And I'm not talking about the inauguration. I'm talking about the fact that I went to Wal-Mart yesterday during the inauguration, and not only did I score a front row parking space, inside the store was practically empty.

    I'd like to think it's because everyone was home watching the inaugural speech of our new Prez, but for some reason I think it has more to do with people being broke from Christmas and their 401(k)'s taking a big ol' crap. Like ours.

    Christmas spending - $680,934*
    401(k) losses - $32,059*
    Front Row Spot at Wal-Mart - Priceless

    *Not actual numbers. Duh.

    Aw, Walmart. The 13th South one is great. Total trash, and a parking garage. How can you go wrong?

    Front row parking... nice. That never happens.

    Our Wal-Mart is such a hole, that I avoid it like the plague.

    Lucky woman! It's sad how front row parking makes me so excited now that I have a kid.

    Oooh were the isles vacant too. I love it when I feel almost alone in Walmart, versus the normal mad crowd. I always feel super excited when I go to Costco and get a front row spot too. Rarely happens though. :0

    Lucky You.

    This time of year is the WORST to go to WalMart here. We have snow birds (or winter visitors if you want to be nice...) and the stores are CRAZY!!
