Next week will be iffy on the posting. Mainly because I will be waiting on a fridge, and Best Buy has one of those lovely “it could show up anywhere between 7 am to 7pm” policies. Of course, they did have the best price and sale, so I can’t really complain, I guess. But I will anyways, because we all have talents and it’s a shame to waste them. 🙂
Most of all, I loathe my current fridge. Because it doesn’t work. It’s only cold-ish, not really cold, and only because we have been putting dry ice in it every day for the last week as we wait for our fridge to show up. What kills me is that our defunct fridge was made in 2009! We bought it from a warehouse, where floor models go because of cosmetic stuff. It had a ding on the side. No biggie.
What DID end up being a biggie is after a year (almost a day to the warantee expiring, btw) it went from super cold to warm to super cold to constantly warm. We had a guy come out and look at it, and the compressor wasn’t working, with only 1/3 of the coils working, so it’s not keeping temp. The mechanic seemed to think the warehouse people had to know about it, since it seems they put more coolant in there. Grrrr.
So we’ve been hunting for a new one, and went to town for the President’s Day sales. I looked at so many fridges. So many I couldn’t afford. How were we paying for this, anyways? Oh, our shiny, happy tax refund. Bu-bye refund. Bu-bye, now. *sob*
Now, since we got our last fridge on discount, it came with an awesome water filter (very needed in our area) and an ice thingy! You know, you push a button and ice comes out. I have never had this before, and I am now hooked. And in a new fridge, I cannot afford it. It’s so cruel.
Right now I’m living off of crackers and carrots because anything in our fridge is very suspect. And in the future I won’t have an ice despenser (that’s the word!). I just can’t justify an extra 400 dollars to have one, but I’ve been dreaming of instant ice. I’ve been weeping over my loss. I’m not sure how I will survive on 3 puny icecube trays. I might just go crazy, like I do in my dreams…
