A Good Day

October 2nd, 2009 at 04:30 am

Had written a check for $600 and mistakenly put it in the check book twice, so we had $600 more than we thought.

We've been wanting a new TV and found a decent one at a good price, so we bought it. A 46" LCD at wally world that had been the display TV for $730 plus tax. The new ones are $1158 plus tax. Figure we saved about $475. Hadn't been planning to get one until the super bowl, but with that kind of deal it was hard to pass up. DW was more excited about it than I was.

So we took the old TV from the living room and put it in the basement. It's a nice little home gym down there now with the TV and an old recliner and my computer. Just need to get an area rug to keep our feet warm off the concrete.

Been meaning to get the basement finished, but it's so expensive to have it done and I don't have the practical knowledge to do more than hang the dry wall, which was done when we bought the house. My next door neighbor is a boiler maker and work gets slow for him in the winter, so he's going to help me as a side job. Extra money in his pocket, and a finished basement for me for about half the price of a contractor. Works out good for both of us.

Today I'm painting the entrance way and taking DW out for a date night for the first time since she's been home from Mayo. She wants to see some movie that comes out tonight that looks pretty stupid, but I want to take her out, so we're seeing Zombieland - the only one that looks like it has the potential to be worth matinee price - and then going to Red Lobster. She loves the salmon there, and she needs the protein. There are cheaper ways to get protein, but it's her excuse for going to a pricey restaurant. I like to spoil her.

DW keeps getting better. She actually walked in wally world yesterday instead of using the wheel chair cart. More because there wasn't a wheel chair cart then because she wanted to. But it's progress. Anyway, that's about it for now. Won't post again until Monday most likely. Have plans for tomorrow and Sunday.

    An extra $600 leads to a better situation than being down $600, anyway! I hope that things are going smoothly and that you get some quality time together. That is the best insurance for a relationship, anyway, even when things are stressful. Good luck to you guys...
