It's not often I publically thank a big company, but last night Best Buy gave us a good gift. We bought a new washing machine there this week. Today it is being delivered. Last night we received a message that the delivery was scheduled for between 3:00 and 5:00 p.m. today.
Most days this would annoy me because we have to spend the entire day waiting for the delivery. Today, though, I think it's a welcome gift. The past few weeks have been really crazy. We needed a day to just hang out and stay in our house.
Of course, we didn't really just stay in the house today. The girls spent a couple of hours with my parents at Grandparents Bingo. The school did a nice job on the event. I ran out to a couple of school fundraising resale events to pick up some clothes for the girls. Tom spent some time getting ready for the delivery. You know the drill -- clear a path in the basement, disconnect the old washing machine, clean up the area, etc.
Even with all the little things, we spent most of the day just hanging out. It's a grey, damp day, so it's a welcome break from the yard work and errands we would have felt compelled to complete on a normal Saturday.
So, thank you Best Buy. We enjoyed the excuse to watch college football and camp out. Now, if only Illinois would pull out a win against Penn State.
