I’ve caved. Seven years, I managed to hold out, but I finally gave in to the pressure. It’s not something I have ever had, or ever wanted, yet my poor, dear, hard-working husband had longed and yearned for one… so yes, my friends, we now have a TV in our bedroom.
A nice perk I hadn’t before considered- and of which we have already taken advantage, is family time. Granted, we are only on day three, but it is kind of nice to pop in a family DVD and snuggle with the kids on a cold morning. Of course, snuggling with the Monkeys always turns into blanket wars and wrestling, but still, it’s a nice way to wake up.
There’s a lot of things I have been a mule about with my dear husband- things I made issues that probably weren’t. Maybe my way isn’t always the best, and maybe I ought not to fight the DH so hard on keeping the status quo… Maybe I might be pleasantly surprised at what more of his ideas look like and what he does when I vanquish the control-freak and ride the whimsical side….
We’ll have to see how that goes… but I’m liking the idea of changes…
