Forgot to tell you all about one thing. I moved a bigger tv into my craft room! :woohoo:
Yesterday, I was sitting in there, knitting, and squinting to see what was showing on TV. My eyes have been getting worse lately, so I decided to fix the problem then and there. I turned off the tv, put down my knitting, got up from the chair, and started taking everything apart at the tv. Unhooked the Gamecube, VCR, and DVD, and started moving all the small stuff out of the way.
My hubby heard me, and came in there to see what I was up to. I said, “Don’t worry…I’m not overdoing it. I just want to get this started. I want to move a bigger TV in here.” He just shook his head and went back to the living room.
Recently, we got a HUGE tv for our living room, and that is where my hubby spends all his time when he is home. The older tv was moved into our bedroom, but it has been hard to watch when we are lying down. I knew that all I needed to do was switch the TVs in the bedroom and craft room, and both our problems would be solved.
Here’s the way the little tv looked in my craft room earlier:
I knew that this setup would be easy to see in our room while we were in bed. My hubby agreed, so I kept on working. Eventually, I called him back in there, and said, “OK, you can carry the TV into our room, and put it on the bed. I’ve already dusted the TV.” He carried it across the hall, then came back in and said, “What else?” I said, “Carry over the drawers from this chest of drawers, then you can move that as well.” After that was out, I went to work on taking apart the TV setup in our bedroom.
Soon, I had that cabinet empty and dust-free. So my hubby came in and got out that big TV, put it on the bed. Then the two of us managed the big cabinet across the hall to the craft room. Next, we needed to get the big TV moved, but it was impossible for me to help with that. So, we moved it to the floor, he turned it on it’s side, and he pushed it across the hall. Together, we man-handled the TV up into the cabinet. What a job! I was careful to not do too much, because of my heart, but I was still out of breath.
Next, he moved in the chest of drawers into the bedroom, and put the other TV on top. So, now I had two TVs to set up with game systems, VCRs, and DVDs for both of them. Needless to say, it was a few hours later when I finally finished getting it all done. I still haven’t figured out how to get one of the game systems hooked up right, but it will come in time.
My craft room is done though! Now, I have a much larger TV to watch while I’m knitting. And the other TV is viewable in our bedroom as well, even when we are lying down!
Here’s my new TV setup in the craft room.
Big difference, eh?
Here’s where I sit when I’m knitting:
I still need to get all those boxes of sheet music out of the room, but I’m living with them for now.
