Thank Goodness for Monday!!!

Yes, you read that right.  I am so glad it is Monday.  We were so busy over the weekend that I am happy to be at work so I can sit down and rest.  :)   Seriously!!!

I have been wanting to change our TV programming provider for some time now and the hubs finally agreed so they were in our home all day on Saturday changing out the equipment until around 8 p.m. that evening.

Something you may not know about the hubs is that he is not very comfortable with change when it comes to our electronics (Bose system, programming said remote control, etc.) because he does not know how to program it.  I completely forgot about this until we were in the final stretch.  The minute I saw the "glazed look" in his eyes I thought to myself "I didn't think this one through".  Especially when there is an LSU game on, right?  :)  The programming was on in time for the game, no problem there.  However, the picture was not clear.  At all.  He questioned why and was told we did not request HD channels.  Slight misunderstanding but all was corrected so he could watch the game in HD.  The only problem we ended up with was the Bose remote control was not operating the TV like it was before.  This meant the remote that goes with the new system was not infrared and did not work through the closed door.  :)  I mean we can't have an open door, right?  Lucky for us we are blessed to have our son-in-law Justin do these things for us.  Yesterday we celebrated his birthday at Benihana's and had cake at Brooke and Brad's.  He was kind enough to come over afterwards and reprogrammed the Bose remote control and set things back the way they were.....so all is good now!  

In spite of our busy schedules this weekend I was able to get most all of my decorating done.  All I have left is the LSU tree and to "redo" the garland on the mantel.  Last year when I remade the garland I did not secure the ribbon on well enough so when we packed it, it did not stay in place.  My bad.  :(

We did manage to switch out the art work so that is all done.  Thanks to the hubs for that one.  Funny story.  We were changing out the art work over the master bed and heard a crashing sound.  We weren't sure what it was....it didn't sound like something had broke.  We walked through the house several times trying to see what it was....couldn't find anything.  (I am thinking gremlins, right?  I am also thinking that I'm glad I am not alone.)  Right before I went to bed I figured out what it was....the metal topper that goes on top of my candle.  It doesn't fit well so it just rests on top of the candle.  I was relieved to finally know what had made the noise.  :)

I hope you had a good weekend....

Take care,



  1. That's so awesome you change the art and decorate your whole house! I so wish I was better at that, but for now, I'll live vicariously through you and pinterest ;).
