Shopping for a treadmill

It has been so discouraging shopping for a treadmill. I have a limited budget and limited time because Guyk has his surgery on March 7. After that he will not be putting up a treadmill for me. My money is not available until the end of the month.

I have been looking on line. Sports Authority appears to ship only. They don't say they have merchandise in the store. They had what I wanted but no time to have it shipped. Sears had want I wanted but when I read the reviews on the treadmill I had picked out, the customers indicated they paid about 200 dollars less than the advertised price on line. I don't understand this!! They must not read their own reviews.

So I am back to walmart to pick one that is not exactly what I wanted. I wanted the treadmill belt to be 20 x 55 but walmart's is 18 x 53. But the price is good.

The other thing I didn't like was that they indicate there is a fan on the treadmill. One person stated when the fan quit the treadmill would not run. This does not sound good. The more stuff they put on them, the more stuff can go wrong.

What ever happened to just keep it simple?

We got home Friday afternoon. I finally got the trailer cleaned out again.

The camp site was nice. I got to go walking almost everyday. Guyk and catfish spent a lot of time together. Guyk got his upper plate but it is still a hassle for him to use it.

The worst part of the trip was that I forgot Guyk's nubulizer. I could not believe that I did that. He needed it too. He could have really used it Friday morning when we were trying to get home. He is just give out. But he got us safely home even if he did feel rotten.

Nebulizer or no nebulizer (trust me, I know, I used to use one too) Guy is a trooper and, I'm sure, can get through anything. Military does that to a person, I reckon.

He did good, Erica, we are home safe and sound. Thanks.
