|New TV...Oh my word!!!!|
|Old TV. Very utilitarian! It served it's purpose!|
I wasn't even that excited about the t.v. Our last hand me down had finally bit the dust. The kids were given a small flat screen for their room, but since they already had a hand me down up there, they decided that we should all save up for a bigger one to put in the living room. We returned the small t.v. and put the gift card in a jar. The kids shoveled snow and did odd jobs around the neighborhood. Whenever we had a little extra in the paycheck, it went into the jar! Super Bowl Sunday was our goal...but it wasn't meant to be. That's okay. "Visa" is a four letter word in this house. Last week we trekked on down to our local big box store. We heaved 55 inches of LED onto a flat bed. While standing in line to pay (cash!) a woman walked by and commented , "Nice t.v.! Lucky!!" Really? Cause it wasn't a huge deal to me. Yeah, it's a fun perk, but I'd rather walk up to the library with my kids, or sit by the fire. And luck? Nope. Sacrifice! It makes the "perks" a little sweeter.
