Fridge Disaster

I've been so out of it lately.

On Saturday morning, I woke up and felt like trash. My throat was so sore that it felt like I was swallowing glass. And my body ached all over. Scot took care of the kids most of the weekend, while I stayed in bed. Totally comatose.

He worked on ebay orders, went to the grocery store, made dinner, gave baths. He was awesome.

And then Sunday night rolled around. It was a disaster. We were getting ready for bed when we discovered the food and drinks in the fridge weren't cool anymore and the icemaker wasn't working. In fact, almost everything felt lukewarm.

We honestly couldn't believe it. Our new refrigerator was only 3 weeks old! We were so frustrated and upset.

At midnight, Scot drove to Wal-Mart and bought a bunch of ice and styrofoam coolers to put all our food and drinks in. We loaded everything up and stored the coolers in our garage. It was after 1:30am before we finally collapsed in bed.

Early Monday morning, Scot took Jake to school and went to Lowe's to get the whole thing straightened out. Our local store didn't have any refrigerators in stock that were comparable, so he headed to another store. Thankfully, they had another refrigerator in stock that was a different brand and a little more in price. Scot went ahead and bought it. They said it could be delivered that afternoon, so we were ecstatic.

Now, it's Tuesday morning and we have another new fridge sitting in our kitchen. And the best part? It works! We are no longer living out of styrofoam coolers. Thanks to my wonderful hubby. :)

Hope we can put this thing behind us...I'm really tired of shopping for refrigerators and worrying about rotten food.
