Old refrigerator on it's way out.
My luck with appliances hasn't been very good lately.
Just before Thanksgiving I had to buy a new stove. I'm not sure how old it was because it came with the house when we bought it but I do know that it was at least 10 years old.
At about the same time that the stove was giving me fits my refrigerator also began acting up. (It's the refrigerator that we bought when we first got married so it's about 17 years old.)
Everything started freezing. I messed with the temperature controls for a day or two and then it seemed to straighten up. I was hoping it was fixed!
This past week it started freezing up again.
I've messed with the controls, unplugged it , cleaned it and still freezing everything.
I noticed today that my eggs are frozen solid and the shells have cracked open. The only good thing is that since they are frozen there is no mess to clean up.
Needless to say the kids and I spent the afternoon at the mall doing some refrigerator shopping.
Do you know how hard it is to find in-stock refrigerators?
I needed something today, not a week from now!
I lucked out when I entered Lowe's.
They have many appliances in-stock and ready to go right then if you want to haul it or they will deliver it free of charge the next day ~ not in a week from now.
So next time I'm in search of an appliance ( and I hope that it's no where in the near future) I will make Lowe's my first stop.
For now we're just using the coolers to keep stuff cold. Tomorrow we'll bring the new refrigerator in and then I'll be off to get some groceries.
Hope you all have a good weekend.
