Surround Sound?

March 19th, 2011 at 05:01 pm

The hub mentioned a few days ago that there is a surround sound system out in my moms little place that he can move here if I wanted. Ive never really thought about having surround sound - but it is free...hmmm. Do any of you have it? Do you enjoy it?

The hub and DD3 are out of town this weekend. DD3 (19) has decided to move to FILs house...about 4 hours away and go to college there. I think this is a good thing for her to try. She has gotten into a rut here and hasnt been motivated since making the decision to quit high school and get her GED. (ugh...this was not supported by mom- not even close).
She is attending orientation this morning and will then come home for the week and move next weekend. She would have stayed this trip except her friend hasnt had her baby yet-- (they are going to induce Monday).

Our houseguest is going camping today and I HAVE THE HOUSE TO MYSELF. No homework, no work for my job. JUST FREE TIME.

what to do, what to do. I feel a little guilty not inviting a grandbaby over...but I want to enjoy the 36 hours of solitude...selfish??? a little I guess.

I plan on spring cleaning my bedroom. It has gone from being my santuary to the cats hangout...and is in need of attention. A good day of organizing and cleaning in there should do the trick!

My budget would be awesome if I hadnt had to come up with money for kiddos this week. The rain is causing DS's business to be slow still...and DD3 wanted to wait until she gets moved to get a job- so I paid her truck and insurance. The hubs job is only working him 20-30 hrs per week right now, so he doesnt have much to contribute. I am making really good money...and I dont splurge or spend often...and I am still living paycheck to paycheck...

The good news is SPRING is here and DS's business should pick up and do GREAT this year. DD3 is going to look for a job soon. Hopefully when those holes get plugged, I can get back on track.

Time to get busy!!!

    Not selfish at all. Make sure you use the foot massager once or twice!

    If you like watching movies and want that "movie theater feeling" at home, surround sound will do it. We have a movie theater in our house, and the surround sound is just something my dh bought in college. The sound is AWESOME.

    Of course, he had wanted to upgrade to something a little better, eventually, and put the old one in our main living area. Since he is now half death, I suppose he no longer cares. I hadn't thought much about it, but one less thing he probably wants to buy!

    Anyway, since I did not pay a penny for the sound, I can vouch for FREE surround sound. It is pretty nice to have. Nothing I would pay for, myself. Wink But it is pretty nice to have, all the same.

    I was thinking back to our condo because we must have used the surround sound with our wee little TV. BUT, now that I think about it, maybe dh never hooked it up or turned it up much - we did have neighbors below us. Probably why I have little memory of it before we got our little theater. Now we can turn it up pretty loud!
