We spend hours and hours at the hardware store.
This last week, we had one day where we spent four hours in Lowe's. The first two hours went by fast. It was the last two hours that nearly killed me. Three days later we spent three hours. We never walk in with the intention of staying that long, but then we have to decide amongst all the options versus what we want to spend versus what fits our style.
I now threaten the kids with a trip to the hardware store if they misbehave.
