The start of a new school year brings a lot of “new” to the table. New teachers, new clothes, new backpacks and supplies. Teachers get new students, maybe a new classroom and their own version of school supplies. I get a bit of new, a bit of old, as seen in the last post, a lot of paper. However, Bob decided we needed something new at the house (and as I’m not allowed any more furry creatures) he went with a new television, speakers and console. I came home from my second of thee twelve hour days this week to find the following …
This came about because a few mons ago Bob asked how I felt about a new television. The one we had was mine from Jersey and while an HD set, it was an early generation HD and apparently not the “latest” or “best” thing out there. For the little television we watch, I thought it was fine, but he started getting the itch for a particular television. I told him he could do whatever he wanted, so long as I didn’t have to do anything. Not get rid of the old cabinet or television, not move furniture, not talk to any salesmen about televisions, etc. if he wanted a new set up, he could do it. And he did.
I somehow didn’t imagine the size he would pick out, or the plethora of speakers (which apparently you have to put in certain spots and really can’t arrange based on how they look in the room) but he did it on his own, and I just came home to it all working. Now if I can only figure out how.
Leia does like the new console.
Multiple twelve plus hour days in a row does not lead to many home cooked meals. Bob had to fend for himself this week, but I did manage to pick up my veggie basket on Friday – eggplant, dandelion greens, green pepper and Roma tomatoes. I think I can make some great dishes with those provided the first week of school for the kids goes basically according to plan.
