Christmas in November

Hubby got his Christmas presants already.
I ordered them, but one came to the house: 3 pairs of biballs...

and the other was shipped to the store and was ready to be picked up. A 32" LCD

A step up from this 20" box tv. (not a great pic but really, how many people take a pic of their tv's?)

We already had to go to town to meet the girl from Freecycle. (I will post about that tomorrow.) While waiting for 3pm to come around, I checked my emails. Perfect timing, his presant is ready. I really did want to save it for Christmas, but this would be my only chance into the city for about two more weeks. They would have sent it back by then.

Hubby had been watching the Mad Max trilogy and as we were about to leave, he is even peeking in at the tv through the crack of the closing door. He says, Why am I going? You can do this yourself! Do I really have to go? I had already told him his presant (not what it was) was waiting to get picked up! At the word "Presant", I am soo there! He puzzles me sometimes, Mad Max is more important than a presant. I think to myself, Hmmm...Mel Gibson on a 32" would be so much better!

If I had known that the newer tv's were so light I would have gone by myself. I figured they were just as heavy as the tv we had or even more, since it was bigger. I thought I was going to need his help.

We stop to get gas and I signal to him that I'm going to walk to the store, meet me over there.
He...No that is a long walk and the traffic is getting heavy.
Good point but daggummit I'm so excited!
Me...I'm more excited about your presant, than you are.
He..well if you will tell me what it is, maybe I would be too.
Me..I give in and show him on the reciept what it says
Now that got him, pace picks up and nothing but grins!

I had to reign him in, there for a moment. The very first tv he saw in the store was this gigantic, monster of a tv (I don't even think we have a wall that big). His eyes looked like they were going to pop out of his head! I had to inform him that that is NOT it. Very sad moment, but it didn't last long. They rolled out HIS tv and he stood there looking at the box in the most loving way...I think I should have been jealous!

His final comment after getting it set up:

The race sunday is going to be AWESOME!!!!

AND he is still grinning!

Awesome! And the extra best part is that it's a present you can enjoy also!! The new flat screen tvs are awesome. I don't have one but my daughter does. And another good part? You didn't have to wrap! Lol.


PS- I went to comment on your last blog and hit the wrong button and lost it somewhere in bloggy land. Sorry!

Holy flatscreen, Batman! I bet your hubby was one grinnin' fool after throwing that puppy in the backseat! =) Hmm...makes me rethink the lowly little sci-fi book I got my husband for Christmas. Maybe I should get him one more. =)

Whoa!!! That is sick! (you know in the good way)

Officially you are the best wife in history, not only did you deliver an amazing Christmas present but you ALSO gave it to him to him early!

The BEST! You put them all to shame.

Spot...I get to enjoy it, but now I have to rearrange my living room, my chair is way too close. No worries on the comment, but was wondering what you thought about my poem 2 posts ago.

Grace...silly how much they like them. LOL!

Mindy...Hey, if he really likes to read, then that book will be perfect.

Angelia...never heard sick being good, new one to me. Best wife? Now lets not get carried away or you'll give me a bigger head. LOL!

Oh, boy! Guys and their teevees! You've given him the "ultimate" gift! Isn't it amazing how light and flat they are?? Now, does he have satellite? I mean, is he getting all those lovely "HD" channels? You can see the stubble on the actor's chins with these teevees!
