Christmas countdown = layaway meltdown


The goblins and ghouls haven’t even tripped up the driveways grasping their candy bags yet, but my mind is on layaway!

When you’re on a meager budget – two months to eek out  layaway payments might as well be two weeks.

Christmas shopping used to be easy – and a heck of a lot cheaper.  That was before my Lego loving, Pokemon collecting boy turned into a teenager.

Although to be honest, Lego kits weren’t as inexpensive as they should have been (I think the bulk of the cost is to pay the scientists they must employee to write the instructions).

I feel SO old and out of the techy loop researching, comparing and contrasting the latest gadgets he’s widened his eyes for when they’ve come on TV.  I don’t own an MP3 player – have never held an iphone, ipad or had the opportunity to converse with ‘Siri’.

If there’s going to be any yelping or whooping or shiny Christmas eyeballs – shopping must be done NOW.

I’m wondering if they let you put Black Friday items on layaway?  Not that I’m getting up at the crack of dawn to try that out – but just curious.

Probably Siri knows.
