I'm so excited! Let me tell you why.
Monsieur Titi and I asked for money to buy a new television and a DVD for our combined birthdays. That was back in July. Our family was very generous and we were off to a good start. Then summer holidays came and went, and we hadn't bought anything.
At the end of summer are the nation-wide sales. We looked at the TVs during the sales, but thought that they were older models, and that we might find a newer release afterwards.
We kept looking, comparing prices on internet, and collecting all the information.
Finally Monsieur Titi found a new electronics/equipment store opening up near here. They were having a couple of promotions on TVs that looked promising. We finally bought our TV and the DVD player/recorder last week. Yesterday, they were delivered.
The television is a 82 cm. flat screen LCD. That's for the bedroom. The DVD is attached to our living room TV where we have the satellite connection. We don't have cable down here in the country, everything comes through old-fashioned antenna reception or through satellite.
The delivery guy set everything up and explained, pretty quickly if you ask me. Then we were left to our own devices!
How come whenever someone explains something to you , and it sounds so simple, and when that person leaves, and you sit down to do it yourself, that you can't remember exactly what they said, and that the instructions look like they're Greek?
But, we managed to figure out the DVD player and I successfully recorded a program as an experiment.
Now, I can buy some exercise videos and use them at home!
