I mentioned in my last post that I had to go fixture shopping for the bathrooms and kitchen to replace the leaky faucets. The thought of spending money made me groan.

The other downside to the plumbing issues is that the water filter system is likely shot, so it would be to either replace it, drink tap water, or buy a Brita pitcher or make sure the fixture I buy for the kitchen sink can handle a Brita filter.

But with getting a new sink fixture, I wanted one with the sprayer for the nozzle. That eliminates fixing a filter to the nozzle. And I'm really bad at refilling pitchers, especially with the amount of water I go through. And I really don't want to drink tap water.

Then it dawned on me...

The fridge has been on its last legs for a while. Heck, I don't even know how well it's still working now, all things considered.

Initially I planned that my first major house purchase would be a TempurPedic bed...but what about a new fridge?

The one in there now is as basic as it gets. Doesn't even have an ice maker.

I've always wanted a French-door style fridge. And one with the freezer on the bottom. I could also get one with the water dispenser and ice maker....

Suddenly I got excited! I even started *crying* because for the first time I was making the house MINE. Fixtures? Appliances? I'm not even consulting with The Guy...I'm making it MINE!!!!

I went shopping today and I think I found the one I am going to get! Even better is the fact that all the President's Day sales are going on now too!

I'm so excited about this! Part of me is thinking, "It's silly to get so hyped up over a REFRIGERATOR and FAUCETS" but dangit, *I'M* the one getting to pick them out!

I was so happy that part of me was itching to just drive PAST all the store and...just keep driving.

I haven't felt like this in years!
