Still no wheels

I feel like a little kid that has sent away for a prize out of a cereal box, waiting for the mailman to bring it for what feels like years. Still no wheels.

This is the model that I ordered from eBay for $69.99 plus shipping and handling ($18.13).

Right now I have a Roll-a-bout which I rented from the local pharmacy. It is waaaaaaaay better than crutches, however, the front wheels are fixed which makes corners a pain. Rental was only $25.oo per month so I’m not out a whole lot. It will depend on how long I have to use it as to if the above purchase was a good move. Maybe I will be off of it in a few weeks then the clown cart will get organzied much sooner. :)

Roll-A-Bout

I have a convention in a week so I am hoping I get the new one. I’ll let everyone know how it works out.

    Good call on the roller aid devices! I rented a roller-aid (roller-aid.com) from a local hospital and it was great. Could get my own coffee, carry my son, etc. They are a little clunky if you have a smaller home, or to drag back and forth to work, but worth it in the long run.
