getting a new refridgerator

is a lot more trouble than you'd friend called me last night, she saw a 25 c.f. side-by-side with a stainless steel front, for $488 , regularly $1179....on clearance...I was surprised it was still there today. One of the sales-clerks said they just marked it down yesterday, and were wondering how long it would last....I would rather have had white to match the other appliances, plus the steel finish shows fingerprints...but hey, the price was right. Anyway, Molly and I had to strap it in the truck, and we didn't know what we were doing....we didn't realize how those straps worked...we finally asked the guy for help...then Paul had to take both doors off (screen door and regular door, then both refridgerator doors off, to get it into the kitchen....then the boys hauled the old one downstairs....I couldn't watch, thought for sure someone would get flattened.
All the food had to go back in the new one, and the stairs vacuumed from the dust from the old one....the shoe rack by the door was moved and there are probably 100 shoes over there that need to go back on the shelf.....but it is very nice. If we ever get the water and ice machine hooked up, it will be a miracle, and very nice, too.

It is hot and muggy and the pool is not running yet. It just needs more chlorine, and a good vacuum....but Paul is sleeping again, not feeling so great....and I of course feel guilty that I just had to go buy a new 'fridge when he is sick....

Well, I have to go outside with the kids now....wait, let me rephrase that: I GET to go outside with the kids now...they are pretty rambunctious....they need some attention....

Yay! You got it! I'm so jealous. It would've been MINE if it had fit. But nooo I had to let something like a stupid wall get in the way! I'll be over soon to drool over it. lol
