I just really need help with this, I cannot understand it.
A few years ago, we wanted to buy a swing set from Wal-Mart in June. Nope, they don't have them--they have to move things out to make room for the Christmas stuff as soon as summer starts.
Last week (July 23--mind, summer weather JUST started here in the NorthWET) hubby stayed out in the sun a little long while reading and, as we never remember to bring anything important on vacation, we forgot to bring one of the seven bottles of aloe gel from home. He pops into Fred Meyer to get some. Nope, none anywhere. We decide to try Wal-Mart. They are clearancing the sunscreen, but we can't find any aloe. So I ask the clerk.
"We usually don't carry that after summer starts, because we have to make room for the back to school items and also some Christmas things."
I know, both Christmas comments came from Wal-Mart, but I am assuming that was the case with Fred Meyer too. I noticed a couple of weeks ago that Target has their swimming items all on clearance also.
Our schools here start before Labor Day, but barely. Many schools don't start until after Labor Day.
Where did the summer go? And I'm not even a kid!
