The inevitable first: trusting in Jesus. The mushy-gushy second: getting married 😉 🙂
THE THIRD: Purchasing our very own, functioning, inexpensive, perfect VCR player.
There she is. In all of her glory.
Morgan and I stood in Goodwill one day (we loveeee Goodwill) staring at the electronics. I had been asking/begging for him to “splurge” and get one…ever since I saw that Goodwill had “The Wedding Singer” in stock. He gave in (who can resist my graveling??); the next incredibly difficult decision was which hand-me-down VCR player to purchase.
Morgan hauled all of the VCRs over to an outlet and tried each of them out…only to realize that, without plugging them into a TV, we would never know if they actually worked. I love that sweet boy.
We sat there really struggling to make a decision between the $4.95 one and the $5.95 one before deciding to invest the extra dollar to reduce the risk of it not working. I look back on that day and see how much of college-graduate, newly-married, stingy people we have become.
Our most recent adventure has been building up our VHS collection. I can’t help but look over at it and laugh throughout the day…it is so old-school. But how can you resist a “5 VHS tapes for $1” deal at the local thrift store??
Time to sit with my main squeeze and watch Happy Gilmore. I bet you all go out and buy one of these gems tomorrow!
