It seems the old adage that I grew up with; Sears will make things right still rings true. They sent a email to DH, apologizing for the issues with the doorbuster tv we purchased Sunday during their Member's only Black Friday preview sale. They made it right in such a way that we were able to pick a tv which better suited our needs within our shoe string budget, and DH brought it home and set it up today. DD loves her coat, DH is glad he doesn't have to face a 2 am cold closed store on Friday morning, so now everyone is happy.
I'm especially happy and it has nothing to do with Black Friday at all! I now have my hands on the center for Lilly's Garden Quilt, and I've been up most - oh I see - all of the night working on it. It now measures a glorious 56" x 88", look for an update very soon when I spread it out and photograph it.
