Thursday evening on my drive home from work I was anticipating a quiet evening of sewing. When I pulled in the driveway I heard the lawnmower...or what should have been the lawnmower starting. Except it was not starting, nor would it. I looked at P and said "it's time". Off to HD we headed to purchase the lawnmower that we had looked at in the Spring, when we knew we really needed it, but were putting it off with all the other spending we had done this year!!! He picked it out and after some haggling about getting one down from storage, etc. we headed to the parking lot to load it on the truck....except, the darn thing was about 2 inches too long for our truck! Ugh. Of course my brilliant mind was working overtime and I announced to all, why not rent the HD truck???? Ahhhh, brilliant!!! So back inside I went, paid my $19.99 and they loaded it up. We drove the 8.2 miles back home. Yes, we had to keep track because there is some technicality of putting in one gallon of gas for every 10 miles driven!
