Meant To Be

Check this out...I got up at 11:40pm (Saturday night) to run to Walmart to turn in digital pictures of my Godson that I had just taken (I was in a rush to get them submitted) and as I was waiting for the 200+ photos to load, I noticed a line forming at the store pickup section. Hmmmmm, I started thinking what is going on. Then more people came. So I left the picture machine, and got in line not know what was being sold. So I asked the man in front of me..."WHAT'S GOING ON?" He said TV's and Laptops. In my mind, I was thinking....NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...but I stayed in line anyway. I was looking for an ad and borrowed one from another liner. The ad read 37 inch HDTV $398 and Dell Laptop $398. I need both! But I need the TV more. The flat screen that we had was getting sick and I was just telling my husband Friday that I saw TV's at Walmart for $600, so this was perfect. Well they only 9 in the entire store! Two couples had already bought 2 doing the I buy one, you buy trick, so that left the rest of us crossing out fingers. I GOT THE LAST TV! It was so suppose to happen. That's why I didn't fight it. I had no cell with me..only my camera and card so I was stuck to do this all alone. Not bad for $398 when all I went to get was some pictures and milk huh?
I pluggeded in my HDMI cord and WOW! Happy GET IT GIRL IN THE HOUSE, and HUBBY was a Happy dude! Now the fight for the old TV has started!

Niiiice! It was total fate. You needed that TV and it needed you. =]

(Just now catching up on my blog reading since we've been out and about. Also, I kept getting an "operation aborted" message. I think it's a weird Blogger glitch! But I was in serious Tam/Girl Style withdrawal.)
