Richard had gone to buy a T.V. a week ago and the T.V. he wanted wasn't in stock so he decided to order it online. But then when he got online he saw that there was a much larger T.V. for the same price so he went for that one instead. When it was delivered on Friday we weren't home so they left it with the neighbor. That is pretty typical I think, and very convenient since the neighbor's door is approximately four feet from our door. When we got home Friday night Richard went to get it from our neighbor she opened the door and stared at him blankly for a second and then said
"Oh yeah! Huge telly!"
After a couple frustrating hours of t.v. assembly, Google searching, reviewing the product reviews (I recommend doing this BEFORE making the purchase) we decided it was a bad T.V. and we needed to return it. So on Saturday Richard and Cameron took it back and came home with a smaller, but better quality T.V. Suffice it to say that the kids were pretty excited to have a T.V. again.
I think the kids liked it, Simon kept saying "The one with the green face is MAD, Mommy." And Miriam was a little spooked by those creepy monkeys. I was too for that matter.
Saturday night I started feeling pain in my ribs and back, which happens to me every three or four months. It's awful but I can take a muscle relaxant that keeps me from getting tense, because that makes the pain worse. The medication works wonderfully but I become a totally relaxed zombie so I slept most of the day on Sunday and Richard took the kids to church by himself. But by Monday i was feeling mostly normal again.
