Earth Shattering News
Drum roll please.........I went into Walmart this morning where I spotted some really cute ducky decor for the bathroom. I decided to do my downstairs bathroom in kid decor since this is the bathroom they most frequently use. It is also the one right off the living room that guests most often use, but I thought they might enjoy the duckies a little bit too. Off I went piling duck stuff in my cart. I got ducky towels, ducky toothbrush holder, ducky soap dish, and ducky border to match my ducky rug and toilet bowl cover I already have. After cleaning Walmart out of duck decor I stroll down to lay a way. At the counter there is a sign that reads, after Christmas Walmart will be doing away with lay a way. It seems in recent years people have cut way back on using this way of purchasing things. I blink once, twice, three times thinking this can't be true. What the heck are they thinking. I love lay a way. How can they be getting rid of my lay a way. I verified it with the lady and yes indeed, Walmart will no longer offer lay a way. I thought I was going to faint from the shock. What will I do? Anyone who has ever lived in military quarters can tell you we don't have a ton of storage space so every Christmas, I put my things on lay a way, and don't get them out until the absolute last minute, because I have nowhere to put it all. Basically lay a way is my Christmas storage closet. I guess next year I will be officially screwed. Not to mention I put lots of stuff on lay a way throughout the year. No more. I guess the good old days of lay a way are finally coming to an end, and that my friend is truly Earth shattering news.
