I Eat My Words

My boys were dreaming out loud. They were painting a mental image of their idea of a perfect living room. It had an entire wall devoted to media and electronics. I went along with it, tongue in cheek. "Sounds good, in fact, we could just do it now. Get a flat screen TV and mount it on the fireplace, front and center." They shared my suggestion with their father.

I am so outnumbered.

For this post, I think you need a "laugh out loud" button, similar to Facebook's "like" button. :0)

Oops, used my daughter's google account, this is actually Lisa from Black Earth!

New flat screena and all? or is it just relocated to "front and center?"

You are out numbered, my friend.LOL

Well, I guess you can enjoy the fireplace now while you're watching TV.:)

Was this an "April Fools" joke?

I have probably seen you and your family watch TV in your house maybe twice. But hey, for those few times a year, this will be fabulous! :)

This really was NOT an April Fool's joke, I hadn't realized what day it was when I posted.

And yes, it's a new TV. The old one (a 10+ year old hand-me-down)was going out--Gabe was adorable hitting the screen to get the picture up, though.

I cannot believe how much your house is decorated like mine. Scary, actually.
Tell Keith you need surroundfireplace sound.

Keith was all over that, surroundfireplace sound it is.

My daughter came by for lunch today, saw the TV, and asked, "Why haven't you moved it yet?"

Believe it people, this is not a joke. This is real life, man-syle. I believe it's payback for spending 7 years with pink walls and hummingbird wall trim in the living room. I don't even like pink but when my peach came out wrong I couldn't resist leaving it and asserting my femininity. They were welcome to repaint at any time.
