The good news is that we finally purchased a TV. For the past few years we have thought about buying a new TV. On several occasions we went to the store, talked to a clerk, and picked out a TV. Then we would start to think. The money we spent on a TV would pay for a trip someplace. So on one occasion we went to Barcelona.
Another time we were in the store and when it was time to pull the trigger and pay for the TV we started to talk again. We went to the Dominican Republic instead. Both of us love to travel. Yes our old TV was crap. We hated it. The picture wasn’t clear and watching DVDs on it was a nightmare. But it still worked. Neither one of us wanted to invest the money into a new TV until we had to. The money could be spent on other things.
One time it was lucky that we didn’t buy a TV since our cat had an emergency trip to the vet. Those visits always add up quickly. In the photo, you can see that they had to shave one of his legs for his IV. He recovered completely from this illness and we didn’t have to stress too much and attempt to return the TV.
Then we moved to England. American TVs don’t work in the UK. Good thing we didn’t spend a small fortune in the US on a TV. Sometimes procrastination pays off. We finally had to buy a new TV. Briefly we considered living without a TV. This dream was quite brief. We wanted to purchase a TV before we signed up for internet since we wanted to bundle cable and broadband. Last Sunday we went to the store and within two hours our new TV was delivered to our apartment. Since we had been shopping so long for a TV we knew what we wanted so the decision did not take long.
Currently we only have 4 channels. After calling to set up an appointment to have internet and cable setup we found out that the earliest appointment is on October 20th. That’s the bad news. We still won’t be up and running completely until the 20th. The bright side is that we will get out of the house more. So when I am finally blogging on a regular basis I will be able to share some of our adventures.
As for now, I have to come to the pub to access the internet. So sad sitting here, drinking a Guinness, catching up on email and blogs. Maybe I can delay the appointment on the 20th.
