our new addition

We have a new baby in our house: a 42-inch plasma TV. I’ve been dreaming of this day for a long, long time. Through a series of amazing circumstances, last night I went to the store to pick up our new family member at over 58% off the retail price. Half of this discount was due to the current sales for the Superbowl, but the other half came in the form of gift cards we had received from many long months of earning points on our credit card. The remaining 42% will be covered by our savings account until Uncle Sam gives us a fat check as a part of the Economic Stimulus plan (if it passes, of course).

Right now we have our new baby safely set on our dresser in the bedroom until we get an entertainment stand that will properly house it on a permanent basis. (I don’t trust it on the floor downstairs where it’s siblings can knock it around.)

My inner nerd has died and gone to heaven.

    Additions to the family often DO come at surprising times. LOL.

    I will have Ryan check this pic out so he can congratulate you. His inner nerd will definitely find reason to celebrate!
    Take care.

  4. Nice job on the deal! In the mean time poor Mike may have to come and visit your baby a couple times while patiently awaiting the arrival of his own… šŸ™‚

  5. I have a 19 inch Zenith… 58 pound black box. One local channel comes in with 20 percent snow. Stupid Bunny ears.
