You have earned yourself an easy chair, with a drink holder, a good view of the TV, and authority over the remote control, I think!
Oh how I wish! No one in my house thinks that I should have control of the remote. My wife will grudgingly watch no more than 1 rugby game in a month, unless it is the World Cup. Sci-fi and action movies are 'too gruesome' to watch with 'family'. So, I get to watch sappy Hallmark movies instead! (Did you know they are doing Christmas in July all month? I have now seen over a dozen Christmas movies!)
But, yes. When I stop myself from grumbling about all the little annoyances, I have a good life. Goobster, your post from last week helped me to remember that. Thank you!
