This weekend was full of lots of buying and building and of course it was all for the townhouse. My wife and her sister wanted grills so they went out and got a couple of them at Sears so that we can start to grill stuff like fish, steak, veggies, chicken……. basically if it can be thrown a grill, they’ll probably make it. I would say that I spent the better part of Saturday morning putting mine together here at my place trying to figure out how everything fit together. What should have taken maybe an hour took me around 2 instead but thats because I was trying to make sure I put it together right. I was pretty happy that I actually got the thing together correctly and didn’t have a ton of extra parts as I sometimes do when I put things together. After I finished I went ahead and put it in the front courtyard near the kitchen so its all ready to go for some grilling.
After that was all done, I went over to my sister in laws place to put hers together. Her grill was much easier to put together since I just finished assembling mine and had a good idea of where everything went so it only took 30 minutes to put hers together. We actually used hers thats night for dinner to cook some salmon for dinner which was pretty nice. At least the thing didn’t blow up which would have totally been a bad thing.
The townhouse also got a house warming gift as well courtesy of my wife. She got a beautiful 42″ plasma TV for the bedroom 🙂 We didn’t have a TV in the bedroom because we didn’t want to spend a lot of time in there while ignoring the rest of the townhouse but after living here a few weeks it became apparent that a TV would be beneficial. Next Saturday its going to be mounted on the bedroom wall, right now I have it on the dresser. Since its all high definition and all that jazz, our regular DVD players weren’t going to cut it. I attempted to use the Sony DVD player that my wife bought me when we were still dating around 8 years ago and we found the picture quality lacking. So whats a guy to do but buy a DVD player that has HDMI outputs! I must say that the picture quality is much improved when you hook it up with HDMI. I didn’t spring for Blue Ray or HD-DVD yet because the prices are just too steep right now and I don’t see the big deal with HD DVD’s when the regular ones seem just fine. Needless to say, I’m going to be enjoying this new setup for years to come 🙂 YAY!
