So, the husband and I have a refrigerator that is old. For real….. it’s old.
Not the cool retro kind of old. Just like…. old.
I don’t mind the thing. It keeps my food cool and my frozen items frozen…. Until now. Last Tuesday it started to sound a little ‘off’. I didn’t think a whole lot about it because it has sounded ‘off’ before. So, I went on with my life.
I figured that is was just acting weird and would take itsself out of the funk it was in. It has done that before. Been weird for a few days and then it would be okay…. A few days after the ‘off’ sound started, I realized that my food was not as cold as it should be, uh oh. This isn’t good. It was still running and things but it wasn’t doing its job and it was obvious. Saturday morning rolled around and there was no mistaking that……. IT. WAS. DUNZO!!!!
The items in the freezer were no longer frozen and all of the food in the fridge had gone bad. Bummer…… TONS of money down the drain. Not so much in the loss of our beloved old friend,the ugly refrigerator but all the food and condements inside. Especially with milk being $4.25 a gallon and we had 3 gallons in there. ( the husband is a milk drinking fool!!!)
On the bright side, all this smelly mess meant one thing….. Applince shopping!!
We went shopping yesterday to buy our first appliance purchase as a married couple. It was so much fun picking out what I wanted and trying to figure out what is best for the Spinach and Sprinkles household. Here is the badboy we decided upon…. It looks like it had the potential to hold the most milk. 🙂
So the husband is going to pick it up while I’m away tomorrow night and I am excited to pack it full of things. BUT, I am totally bummed to pay the grocery bill to fill it again since everything that was in our old refrigerator & freezer had to be thrown away.
