And not like Matt Damon bought a zoo, either.
We bought a small canoe with a bunch of machined holes in the bottom because 8yo (in nearly three weeks and I haven’t even started his bday stuff) likes kayaking and this thing was $20 and a stones throw down I5. Husband was over the moon because it was a shorter drive than he had thought, never mind that we would be saving $300.
We managed not to scratch the car AND we found a youtube video that was literally made for Husband, named something like “so you bought a canoe off craigslist and you need to fill up them holes and save yourself $300”.
It would have been a great project for the boys but apparently filling in the holes involves all types of epoxies and resins and sanding down fibreglass, so they’ll probably watch a movie while Husband bitches about the job, even though we saved $300 by not buying knew.
Disclaimer: Husband is a hard worker who values his down time.
There was a noticeable lack of child input and distraction during the eerily calm 18 minute segments of the dude’s videos. Anyhoo, I’ve big expectations about when its finished!
