Here is what happened at our house on Sunday. No relaxation, no coffee even...too much to do. I'm sure it is the same in lots of households, but thought I would share anyway.
We had a busy weekend. My better half is an electronics nut. He loves gadgets and remotes and computers etc. He has looked and looked at new TVs. Every time we are shopping he sees these huge entertainment centers and wide screen TVs and says that we should get one. We looked at them recently and then he went shopping alone. He came home and picked me up to show me the one that he liked. He has good taste and the entertainment center was a beauty....though huge. He gave me the spiel on how nice it would be to have it for the holidays. We are home most of the time and the TV is a big part of our entertainment. I heard....Look at the colors!...It's almost like we are there!...Look, you can see insects crawling on those plants!....Beautiful wood on that piece of furniture! Just think how the Christmas specials will look!
It's coming on Wednesday.
Yesterday was spent making room for this huge piece of furniture. He had to empty the old center. That involved listening to the old Perry Como tape that he found....watching the Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons special that we had saved.....listening to the old Benny Goodman music that he found. His "work" was different than mine. I left him to emptying the cabinet while I did the "Christmas clean" in the dining room. I completely cleaned that room, from the chandelier to the carpet. Moved things to make way for my skinny tree that goes in the corner. The room sparkled, when I was finished. I had many interruptions...come see this.....you've got to see this.....this is so neat.....do you remember this? I guess husbands and wives have different ways of doing things. I was physically drained when I was done. We both got the things done that we wanted to get done. It is finished and we are ready for Wednesday.
I have to admit, when I clean a drawer. book case or a box of photos....I do the same thing. It takes me forever to get through it. There are lots of memories in our homes and fun to go back and revisit.
