Investigate the Un-Expected Curve Balls!

So… literally right after my most recent post… I found out the Lamp in my 52″ Samsung went out!

Or shall I say…

EXPLODED!

 See the little shattered glass pieces?!

Now, my husband works 2 hours away Monday through Fridays… so I am left single parenting and even having to take care of the “man” stuff around the house!

Picture it… me trying to get behind a huge TV with a screwdriver… looking up instructions on the internet on how to get to the damn lamp! All the whilst my two daughters are getting in my way and I am praying that I don’t topple the TV over! (Phew)

So I text the picture to my husband and he calls back right away…

Him- “How did you get the lamp out!?”

Me- “I looked it up on the internet!”

Him- “Oh… well looks like you’ll have to get online and order a new one… should be around $100”

Me- “Yikes… ok.”

Him- “Well… at least if it comes while I’m not there, you know how to put it back in!”

Me- “Oh Yay!”

😉

So I got online and googled the lamp code and saw this…
