I told Den that the appliance gods would punish us for buying new appliances when some were still working. Everyone knows that when you buy something that you don't need, you will be punished. I tried to convince everyone that we needed them. 17 years is a long time for some appliances but they obviously had some life left in them. And the appliances gods knew this and punished us. The TV in the rec room went out. Grrrr. That TV was 11 years old and boy did we get our moneys worth out of it. That sucker would be on for the entire weekend without a break. That TV was the center of the universe for my boys(Den and DJ). Den handled it very well. He was almost giddy about the death of his beloved television. He has been eying some bad ass 60 inch TVs. I think he broke it.
So the good news is I'm getting the rec room painted. Confused? I'm not buying a pretty new TV and putting it in a room that needs to be painted. Any bets on how fast he will get this project done? I'm guessing very, very, quickly.
I have been keeping an eye out for a new recliner. That bad boy will do it all. If he is getting a new TV, I should get a comfy chair to watch it in. Maybe I should kill the old recliner just to make sure that I get it faster. Now if only we had some extra cash!
I'm goin' shopping,
