This Year’s Valentines Gift

Posted on February 17, 2019 by under Life, Toys.    

We didn’t have time for a Valentine getaway this year and so we decided to buy ourselves a present instead. Brian had been wanting a new TV and, as it has been almost ten years since we bought our last one, I guess it was time. The TV we’d been looking at last year that was $4000 had just gone on sale so it was a sign.

We had musical TVs in preparation for our newest addition. Brian moved the one above the fireplace to the garage. The one in our bedroom went to replace that one and then the 55″ in the basement went into our bedroom.

I’m not really a fan of having TVs in the bedroom but what can you do?

Here are a couple of pics to show you the difference between the old TV and the new TV. It’s so big that it barely fit on our TV stand.

We should have had the GeekSquad guys mount the TV to the wall when they came to deliver and set up the new TV but we didn’t have the foresight to buy a wall mount at the same time. We thought the TV would fit on the stand. However, after a few days of it barely fitting on the stand and Brian not feeling comfortable that it wouldn’t fall off, we finally caved and went back to Best Buy to get a wall mount for it. (Incidentally, the wall mount is now on sale for $79 and our TV is on sale for $300 less than want we paid. Darn it! We should have waited! I hope we remember to wait until Presidents’ Day ten years from now when it’s time to buy another TV.)

Dad came over last Sunday to help Brian get the TV mounted. Here are a few pictures I took while they were working.

Finished product.

Brian spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning up the wires so it actually looks much better. I need to get a new pic. Anyway, that’s pretty much our Valentines gift for each other this year. (I suppose this is better than the year we got each other his and hers handguns for Valentines.) We are so unromantic! LOL.
