Lazy Saturday

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.
