09:14 pm - Consumer fail.
I'm not a big fan of box stores, but sometimes they're a necessary evil.
I left the house this evening with one goal: to achieve a reel mower for cutting our new backyard.
Both Home Despots I visited only had one mower in stock, for a whopping $140. There was actually a gas powered mower next to it for five bucks less. They USUALLY carry about 4 models of reel mower, but apparently I should have showed up earlier in the summer.

I picked up a few other necessities and rolled over to Target looking for 15-20ish KG kettlebells, only to discover that the largest kettlebell they carry is a whopping 15lbs., which is way light for my needs.
*sigh*

Came home and ordered a mower off Amazon with better features for almost half what Home Despot wanted, and it'll be here Friday. It's 9:21PM and I got nothing I wanted to done this evening.
Bah.

To the basement! I have new ideas for laying out workspace.

DoH! We have a reel mower which we never use. It oculd be yours for the cost of having the blades sharpened. Um... that's not very helpful right now is it? sorry. Anyone else want a reel-mower?
