A few weeks ago I blogged about our dying fridge. Well, it came back to life for a bit. So, of course, we tried to pretend it would be alright. We knew better, but we just weren't willing to face the hassle.
We've kept the amount of food in the freezer down pretty low (no more than would fit in our large cooler). Then, Goblin got laid off. The Fates being the cruel witches that they are decided we needed to get a good taste of their whimsy. We woke up on Sunday morning to another large puddle in front of the freezer after all the ice in the ice maker had melted.
Goblin went to Sears today to check out their offerings. This evening we went to a local store, Fletchers Appliances. We found a large Fridgedaire floor model, without an ice maker, at a tolerable price ($600). And, since Goblin isn't working it's no problem for him to be home tomorrow afternoon when they deliver it. Plus, he'll have time to empty out the old one before they get her.
I'm all about looking on the bright side right now.
