I had one of these on my "Big Items Want List" for about as long as Daniel and I have been married. I got one for Christmas last year.
If I put one of these on my list, I wonder how long it will take to get one?
Seriously, we're workin' on year 5 of not having a decently working lawn mower. And no ones fault but our own tight-wadded stingyness - on both our parts. There have been times when I've begged and pleaded and gotten on my knees and kissed his feet wanting to go spend money on a "new" mower. And he's always said "but I can fix the one we have". And he does. And it works... a little better... for a little while. And we've saved money.
This year... I ... I ... I just want one that works!! We have our tax refund coming in sometime, I think I might just present it to the committee that we use it for a late model lawn mower and give up on all the 25-year-old ones. They're probably not energy efficient anyway.
