II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Isn't It Ironic...

how sometimes the thing you think you want turns out to be not so great? Well, if you remember in one of my previous posts, I mentioned that our brand new 52 inch TV had "gone out" just 2 days after we got it home from the store. We ended up having to have it shipped off to the shop where they told us it would be 3 weeks before they could even look at it. (and we were SO bummed out!) BUT....While it has been gone, we have started going upstairs (in our new playroom) to watch TV and we've gotten to where we REALLY enjoy watching TV up there. For one...there is only 1 couch...so we tend to cuddle together--whereas downstairs Matt usually sits in his recliner and I am on the couch alone. And for two...when we are up there...I actually SIT down and watch TV instead of trying to wash dishes or fold laundry or paint my toenails (multi-task) too. That is good because I can finally relax for a bit...but of course..it's bad for the "getting stuff done" part of my life. Anyway, much to our surprise...the TV repair guys called last night and said our TV was ready already and they brought it back this morning. You'd think we'd be so happy...and we kind of are...but already Matt and I have both commented that we have LOVED this past week of cuddling together on the couch upstairs and we are actually kind of sad that the new one is back. For this past week...we have spent a lot more time together as a family not watching TV since there wasn't one downstairs and now it seems like that is just going to be over. I know we could WORK to keep it that way..but with the TV sitting right there...we just tend to turn it on. Anyway, I am certainly not trying to complain...this was actually supposed to be a post saying HOORAY! We got our TV back early! ... but I just thought "How Funny!!" that we have a sense of sadness about it too!

What an odd set up to have. TV doesn't even register, JT's feet to consider...

Maybe you should move your Big TV upstairs...

We put a TV in our bedroom and since then that is really the only place we watch TV anymore. It's nice b/c I always end up falling asleep anyway.
