Don and I may have made a mistake. Well, really, I could blame this all on Don, but I won't. Even though he made the original suggestion, I was on board with the decision.
I mentioned last week that we went down to help Danielle move into her new house. She and her roommates had just about everything they needed for the house with a few exceptions. One of those being a TV set. So Don offered them ours - the one on our main level and the one that gets watched the most. His thinking was that we'll get ourselves a new one.
Well, has anyone purchased a TV lately? We hadn't. We had no idea how much TVs have changed; the technological advances and how expensive they are. We spent many nights going to different stores and checking out the different selections. It was mind boggling. Plasma vs. LCD. 720 vs. 1080. Top brand vs. cheapo brand. To be honest, it was all greek to me. Don was the one that had to make the decision.
And he did. Last night he brought home a new LCD 1080 cheapo (but nice) brand. It's bigger than our old one, which is nice, and we'll have HD hooked up to it as soon as I call the cable company. And Danielle gets a new-to-her TV set for her new home. All is well... until we get our credit card bill next month.
Just a reminder...
Tomorrow is my one year blogaversery and I'm having a give away to celebrate it. All you need to do to qualify for the random drawing is to leave me a question (up to 3). You can do that in a comment or email me. But do so before 9:00 PM tomorrow night. You can read more of the details here.
One more thing...
For some reason, the video on my post yesterday didn't show up for everybody. If you weren't able to see it, I've included the link to it on my link of the day.
