Day 3. The continuation.

I am a very determined girl.

Dave announced this afternoon that guests would be coming for dinner.  Imagine my horror, when what was lurking in my studio was the biggest 50″ TV the world has ever seen.  I couldn’t have it just lounging around in my studio like a welcomed friend.  So I spent the afternoon clearing out the closet, taking down shelves, and eventually getting the beast into the closet all by myself.  (See in the above picture how Bigsby looks on in amazement. “How the flip did you get that thing in there?!” is what I’m sure he was thinking.)

On a more pleasant note:  I am going to a photography seminar in October!  W00t!  On Friday before I went to work I told Dave that I wanted him to surprise me with something. (For some reason every time I’ve told this story people have told me that it’s very strange to request a surprise…oh well.  I am pretty strange.)  So upon arriving home from work I found a meal of Chinese takeout (mmmmm!) and a form to complete for registration for the seminar.

I am SO excited.

Day Two. Day TV.

Oh dear.  This is embarrassing.  A few days ago Dave expressed interest in buying a cheap used TV so that he could play his old N64.  We don’t have a TV at our house, as we have always found having cable is a waste of time.  I also HATE the look of televisions.  They seem to me to be a brilliant way to destroy the look of a room.  So I told dave, “You may have a TV.  As long as it fits in the closet.”  So we searched “TV” on craigslist (in the free section).  A few old small TV’s popped up.  And then…there was this one.  ”Free 50″ TV.  On/off Switch a bit finicky.  Everything else works beautifully.”  Dave then proceeded to measure the closet in my studio.  It fits. *barely*.  And Dave’s heart was then set.
Leave it up to my husband to find the biggest possible TV within allowance.  We now have a bigger TV than I ever imagined would enter my home.  But as long as I can cover it up, I’m happy.
