I write today with my proverbial tail between my legs. Toshi, our devoted (that’s right) 36 inch TUBE tv, has not, in fact, abandoned us. I have been trash talking Toshiba for awhile now, and now I must apologize. It is Verizon Fios who has wronged us. Well, their DVR cable box anyways.
This brings me to another point. My husband rocks my socks off. Seriously guys, he is the bees knees, the cat’s pyjamas. So yesterday, after a long day of work, he went with me to Costco (which I know he hates, but it really helps me because he plays with Blake and helps me carry things and pick things when I’m feeling indecisive). Then he came home and real quick slapped up some more crown moulding in the kitchen (among other kitchen details he attended to), let me relax and watch tv in the basement (live-ugh, see my last blog). While I was watching t, he calls me upstairs to look at the tv, he has been working on it and discovered, by plugging the cable and dvd player into different imputs that the tv is fine. It is the cable. Now I’m not totally stupid, we did consider that when this all started, but I don’t think we tested it out and for one reason or another we decided it had to be the tv. How dumb would we have felt if we had gone out and bought a new tv and it didn’t work either? Ha.
So, maybe we can put this dramatic tv saga behind us soon. They are sending us a new cable box. We will sadly lose everything that is on our DVR right now (which includes the entire 4th season of Lost *sigh*), but I guess them’s the breaks. I will inform you when you can mentally put this incident to rest. Til then, try to keep your head up.
