We've moved into the big time now.
So Angela is getting a pool and we just dropped an insane amount of money on a 52 inch LCD HDTV. Now once you make a purchase like this( and it was an impulse buy by DH) you have to get all the equipment to go with it. So not only did we go overboard on the TV, we then had to invest in a new entertainment center.
But wait, the joy does not stop there. WHY bother having a nice TV without a new blu ray player?? Who wants just old dvd's???
So this past weekend we went out and bought not a blu ray player but a PS3( more bang for the buck apparently). But then, we needed and AV receiver to hook everything up to. Wait, there's more.... for all this fancy equipment you need fancy cords. One cord - ONE cost $150.00. And we needed 3! Not of the same type, but something of a similar nature.
All of the upheaval happened this past Saturday when the furniture came. Reilly was out of sorts all day with all of the mess in the house. He doesn't like mess. But the tv is awesome! One last piece of the puzzle comes on Friday and that's the HD DVR from the satellite people and we are set to go.
Now if I can just figure out how to use all the remotes......
