40 BEFORE 40: FOR MY CONSIDERATION

When I picked out my coloring book, crayons, and $1 daisy plant, I did some recon work for my other tasks. Build a Lego set. Complete and a frame a 500-piece puzzle. No problem. Finding the Lego aisle was easy but finding a simple and reasonably priced set was difficult. And I’m not sure how I feel about the separate Lego sets for boys and girls. I understand the concept and the reasoning behind it, but I’m not super crazy looking at pink and purple and pastel Lego sets in one aisle.

I may not be an expert on cars, but I can appreciate a pretty car or motorcycle not bathed in pastel colors. My indifference was quickly forgotten until I saw the perfect Lego set. CINDERELLA! What?!? As much as I absolutely love Cinderella, I didn’t love the pricetag. $29.99 for a Cinderella Lego set? Nope. I probably would’ve been tempted had the set been on sale for $14.99. Who am I kidding? I probably would’ve been bought it for $14.99. $19.99 would be temptation.

CINDERELLA!!!

CINDERELLA LEGO SET!

When I couldn’t find a Lego set that I liked and within my price range, I wandered over to the puzzle section. Why can’t I find a wide selection of 500-piece puzzles? A 10o-piece puzzle would be too easy for me, and a 1,000-piece puzzle would test my patience. A 500-piece puzzle seems like a good compromise, but my selection at a certain store was very limited. However, I spotted the perfect puzzle for me … hello, Cinderella! I was very very very tempted to spend $9.99 for my personal prize.

I was so incredibly close to buying the puzzle until my sensibility kicked in. I should do research. How much does a 500-piece puzzle cost? I’m pretty sure I could find the Cinderella puzzle somewhere online. I just wonder whether $9.99 is a good price. However, I am in love with National Geographic puzzles featuring adorable animals in the wild. Well, I have some time to decide to pick the perfect puzzle and Lego set before completing my 40 before 40 list.
