TV Stand Shopping (update)

Oh boy, what a day!

It started off great, the alarm company showed to activate right at 8am. They gave me the time frame 8-12, I liked that I was first so I would not have to waste all four hours waiting and then another two hours while he did his thing. The crappy part, well it turns out that the phone jack next to the stove is inop. The required fix involved removing drywall, potentially all the way from our access panel to the outlet, including taking off cabinets. This broke me down to tears thinking about putting a band aid on our brand new house. I am thinking about leaving well enough alone and jut leaving it broke, my fear is that when we go to sell the house, it will have to be fixed after inspections are done, on our dime. I may just have them take out the phone jack and hope that when we sell the house, no one will notice in a decade that there is no phone jack downstairs. They are coming tomorrow between 8-12, so probably noon.

I then headed to the Max to pick up my pickup. Drove to Carolina Place to pick up the t.v. stand. I loaded it in and was very happy that it weighed a million pounds. I brought it home and brought it in the house. By then the anger over the phone jack worked a headache on me, I took some advil and took a nap for the first time in a while. I woke up feeling better and assembled the t.v. stand. Amanda came home, tossed the t.v. on top.

I will take pictures but I have to say, the best part is that I am in my chair, typing, I can look up and see the entire screen. It also helps the audio being up higher.

Icing on the cake, the price on the website today is $60 higher than last week. Holla!
