I am totally bragging right now...
« on: April 21, 2011, 05:40:51 PM »
Okay, I just wanted to pat myself on the back for a moment, LOL.  We just got a new TV to replace the one in our living room.  My H didn't know that they delivered it today, and I wanted to surprise him, so I disassembled the one we have up on the entertainment stand (52" and pretty bulky), and moved it into the other room all by myself.  Then I assembled the new one (55" but slimmer..although still really heavy!!), lifted it up onto the entertainment stand, and hooked up all the cables to the home theater receiver/satellite dish.  I am so proud of myself!!  I can't believe I did all that myself...especially hooking all the wires up...I still don't know how I managed to get them right.  Now when he gets home tonight, he will walk into the room with our brand new TV on!!  I hope he's proud of me!  LOL!  I had to take a shower 'cause I got all gross putting it together.

Sorry...I just had to share with others how self sufficient I was today!  Can't wait to see DH's face!  It's the little things in life...

That is awesome! You'll have to let us know his reaction.

DH says there is nothing hotter than a woman reading directions and hooking up wires correctly!  :)

LOL, thanks my MIL Pooh!

And I will Holly!  He is so funny- I was telling him I had a surprise for him and he asked, "Is it food?"  I didn't answer but was thinking...I hope when he sees it, he thinks it's better than "food..."  Haha.

Okay, it was a success!  Our living room is the first room you walk into after entering from the garage area, so he walked in and first looked at me on the couch and greeted me.  Then turns to look at the TV and gave the loudest gasp ever.  You know, like little kids do when they get a big surprise?  It was so funny!  "Oh my gosh!  This is our TV?  Did you put it together by yourself?  When did it come?  I can't believe you didn't tell me!"  I got an extra kiss for my hard work.  ;)  That was fun.

Congrats girl! I love the feeling of getting things done. I hope he gave you a huge smile and hug when he got home.  ;)

Awesome! I knew he'd enjoy it, but I'm glad you got a good reaction out of him!

Should have taken a picture of his face!  Thankfully, I think it was better than "food."  ;)

that's funny but so true,  but I never read directions and then get in a mess so dh does it and studies the directions first.     Just like ther's nothing hotter than a man vacumming!!

Julia; agreed! My ILs make fun of my DH b/c he does some of the domestic things. (They bought him a pink ruffly apron last year). But, I find it pretty sexy when he's doing dishes!

Maybe I better put together the shelves for him this weekend. It's not a big screen TV or anything, but it's cheap!

Great job, Overwhelmed!  I don't know how you did that!!!!  Those TV's are HEAVY!  And the wiring - whew!  That's impressive. My dh wouldn't know what to think if I did that - I think he'd pass out from shock.  So happy your dh appreciated your hard work and thoughtfulness.  Applause, applause! 
Hugs, Hope

Holly, I agree there's nothing hotter than a man helping around the house. If they only knew...

OW, good on ya! I'll bet your DH thought you were hot stuff too. Way to go!

Wow.  I am happy you did it!  For there were so many times dh would have to get the surprise unstuck from the trunk, or unwedge it from the hall.  More times than I care to recall.  Or he'd come home while I am carrying in!!

Good for you overwhelmed!!!

HD, I was never good at that either. I got him a videobox that needed a special cord for our TV for Christmas. I bought both, hid the videobox but forgot about the cord.

He saw the cord when we got in the car that night. I was found out... LOL. Secrets have never been easy for me!
