Well, I want to upload a pic of the new fridge, but the computer won't let me. :-(
Anyway, it came last night and I'm so happy it's ridiculous! It's HUGE (had to dismantle part of the door-jam to fit through it). I didn't realize how deep it was in the store, I thought all the extra room was from the additional height! But it's in, it's hooked up, we can use the water and we will be able to start using the ice probably tonight.
Funny story about hooking up the water to it though. When my house was built, there wasn't any indoor plumbing. So, when that was put in - well, let's just say it wasn't the prettiest plumbing job on the planet. Fortunately it's all run inside a closet, so it's not a daily eyesore. Anyway, instead of a hole that the pipe fits in, there's a big square hole cut into the floor. Hubby was working in there and had issues and had to walk away. When he went back, he said it was like something kept brushing his hand. He was getting a bit freaked out when all of a sudden here comes a nose and wiskers out of the hole! Well, he yelped and fell back so hard he moved the fridge. I go running into the kitchen in time to see my daughters cat's little head and nose pop itself up through the hole. Of course all the commotion startled the poor thing and she went back down and hid. (And I will not admit to how long I stood there laughing at my "macho" man.) He thought we had a rat, which made me laugh even more because the only thing I've ever seen in the house was a field mouse that was maybe 2 inches long. I really wish I had a picture of the look on his face when it happened!
In any case, I'm really looking forward to going home tonight and setting up my new refrigerator. I figure I have at least 5 cubic feet more room in this one than the last, and I'm really looking forward to being able to organize it better. Plus it'll be nice not to have to rip my back apart trying to see what's in the bottom bins! I'll try getting online tonight and posting the pics I took.
