On Saturday, Brian ran a half marathon out of town. He left pretty early. The kids and I were sitting in the living room watching tv. All of a sudden, the tv went black and smoke started billowing out of the back. Smoke….lots of smoke! I started yelling at the kids to get back because I wasn’t sure what was going to happen next. Thankfully, when I turned it off and unplugged it, it stopped. I called Brian and was freaking out a bit.
We weren’t planning on buying a new tv right now, but that obviously changed. The funny thing is, we bought that tv with wedding money 6 years ago. It was a 32inch and on sale for $600. We bought another 32inch in a better brand and it was on sale for $179! Crazy thought!
