Media Mayhem

We decided it was time to get the new receiver, speakers and furniture for the media room!  This was my first visit to Fry's Electronics and it is possibly my last.  Jeff found an overly helpful employee to talk about sound system stuff.  Sandra and I went and found some TV mounts and DVD players and looked at DVD's and Jeff was not done talking.  It was like an hour and I was so tired of being there.  That guy could talk!  He could tell I was bored and yet it still took forever!!  I found the sound room to hang out in until Jeff seemed like it was almost time to go.  They were loading our cart up with speakers and such.  We stood around for another half hour, at least while the guy typed up our ticket and made adjustments to our order.  

Then we made it to the check out counter.  You would think we were in the clear now ... just pay and get out.  Nope, nope, nope.  First the ticket was wrong.  It had an extra item on it.  Then once that was fixed it was missing an item that was supposed to be there.  Then the subwoofer that we got didn't match the one on the ticket!?  I was so mentally worn out from all of this I didn't really care what was wrong anymore and why it was taking so long to fix it.  I just wanted to sit down.  There are no seats at the checkout area, (or like anywhere) so I had to get creative.  Finally after being at the store for over 2 and a half hours we escaped.  I was seriously a little crazy at the end of it!

Jeff and Sandra were both done too... but they stayed at the counter.

This was my make shift seat.... a scale.  Jeff told the guys it's pretty bad when the wife is willing to sit on the scale because she is done.  I was seriously that done!  I had enough time to scroll my facebook feed and then still just sit and wait.  If I had to talk to someone I was not going to be nice.  

Once we made it home with our stuff we headed back out to check out Rooms-to-go outlet store.  I really wanted some furniture for the media room.  The people there were so quick and helpful!  We were able to find armless recliners (that don't recline right now) and got a steal of a deal on them!  All 5 they had for under $500!  We were in and out of the store in an hour!

That night when the TV was all set up we just camped out on the floor for our first movie night.  We went back to pick up the chairs on Monday.

The room set up with the chairs.  We will probably still mount the TV to the wall, but it's set up for now. 

They are nice chairs!  

We are so happy to have this room done!  So much hard work finally paying off!
