That's So Charming

Do you know what this weekend is? Of course you do . . . it's Labor Day Weekend. Or at least to most people that's all it is. For Charming it's so so much more. And this year it's turned out to be so so much more. You could say that some of his smaller dreams have come true.

Charming is not a big spender, so I was pretty surprised when he called on his lunch break Thursday to tell me he saw an ad for a TV we couldn't pass up. 42" of flat screen viewing pleasure for $350.00.

We had thought it over for a while and we knew what our options were. There is only one time of year that we watch a lot of TV, so there were very few features we really needed. The real question was this:
Watch football on this...
. . . or this ???

Other perks included the PC hookup and getting rid of that annoying digital converter box.

Dream #1 came true when we hooked it up and watch our first football game Thursday night.

Dream #2 came true when that first game was won by our favorite team.

 Go Cougars!!!

Dream #3 came true when Charming casually turned on the TV this morning and found the early broadcast of the Navy vs ND game in Ireland.

This will be a good weekend.

Now we'll see of my Labor Day Weekend dream comes true . . .
That the dish fairy will take pity on me and do the dishes after last night's delicious fried chicken dinner.

  1. Oh Sarah! Thank you so much for showing me that bag tactics for coating the chicken, AND suggesting we use Crisco instead of Vegetable Oil. Fried Chicken never tasted so good! I can do it faster, with less mess, and it tastes that much better!
    Love you.
