The end of an era


November 6, 2019

Sickness has been going around our county for a few weeks and the same remains true for our household.

Poor Lincoln had an ear infection and this led to me having to stay home one day with him.

I thought that perhaps I could park my young son in front of the television for about an hour while I cleaned up the kitchen. I turned on the television and much to my great disdain, I noticed a black screen with an occasional flicker of a picture.

Though I had not experienced a led bulb going out in a television before, or a television going out of order, that is exactly what happened.

I was distraught, thinking oh no, this will be expensive! I remember thinking that it felt like I just bought this tv a couple of years ago. I was wondering if the warranty was still intact, but more importantly, I wondered where I had even purchased the TV.

I called a few companies that I thought I would have ordered the entertainment device from and finally decided to look for its original box. I called the number and to my surprise, I found out that I had purchased the TV five years ago. In today’s age, that seems to be a long time for technology, so I began looking for cheap televisions because I am frugal.

I was able to find out all of that info, order a new TV, and roast about eight pounds of coffee while Lincoln had his morning nap.

The nice thing about the TV going out was that I spent quality time with my youngest son. Everything that I did was funny to him even though he was sick. Because he was sick, he was also more cuddly than usual, which felt good considering as soon as I pick him up, he wants to be put down.

Lately, I have found that Lincoln has been learning at a great pace and he has a big heart. My oldest son PJ has been doing well in kindergarten and seems to love school. Even when he was sick, he wanted to go to school. Hopefully, he feels the same way for the next 15 years.
