We made a few rather expensive changes to the house this week. As I had said in a past post, we were going to buy a new dining room set. Well, here it is! It arrived on Thursday morning, and after school was finished, I got the
pain in the ass pleasurous job of putting the entire set together myself. (Sean is not very handy when it comes to putting things together.) Four hours and two very sore hands later, this is the finished product.
We needed something that would accommodate all five kids and us as well, (Lizzie, obviously is too little to sit at the table yet.) but wouldn't cost us a fortune. Declan, Cian, and Fionn can all sit nicely on the bench. Liam, Mary, Sean and I all sit in the chairs. Not bad for $500. My only worry is that they will distroy the wood. It is solid oak but has a shiny finish that is just waiting to be distroyed by my little monsters. I am trying to find a table cloth and cushion set, but so far I have not found anything I like. (We have a country kitchen theme.) If anyone has any online store suggestions, please send them my way!!
Yesterday, Sean went out to buy groceries. This is what he came home with. I don't know about you, but I don't see any bread or milk here. He decided to take a detour to Best Buy. Its a 55 inch 1080p LCD Insignia. (Made by Samsung) The TV in our bedroom was starting to go out. I suggested we get a small 32 inch for the room. Instead, like any man, thinking only with "size" in mind, he goes and buys this
