Yesterday I received one of the most amazing gifts I've ever been given in my life.
I mentioned a few days ago that I had been wanting a piano, but it was not in the budget. Even for a used one, they're several hundred dollars. Usually.
Enter my auction loving friend Suzy. She saw this and when she realized it was going to sell for just over a hundred bucks, she decided to go ahead and buy it.
How lucky am I?
I love that they have the inspectors sign their names to the back. I also love that I'm blessed enough to have such an amazing friend.
When I told my husband about it, his first question was his usual question when I bring home stuff - "Where are you going to put it?" I suppose this was a very valid question considering that we just put a big bookshelf in the space where I was planning on putting my future piano. That bookshelf isn't fitting anywhere else in this house either.
Quickly my mind started to race. Where was this thing going to go? Then I got it! It would fit perfectly in front of the window
of my scrap room. I just had to move the small shelf that was there and relocate a few things. No sweat.
Well, a little bit of sweat. Pianos are freaking HEAVY. Can you believe Suzy fit it in the back of a Rav4
The boy is completely enamored of it. Joke's on him; let's see how much he likes it in a few years when he has to take piano lessons! BWA HA HA HA HA!!!
While I was making dinner, the boys were testing it out. As my husband picked out "Heart and Soul," Bubba was belting "Happy Birthday" at the top of his lungs.
Happy indeed. :)
