Running on Empty - Just Do It!

Monday, January 21, 2013

In the middle of the night you hear it's joints popping. You sometimes hear the motor kick in. Water just isn't as cold as it was during summer.... Then your ice melts and refreezes. I cleaned the bottom grill and used the vacuum hose under it. I dumped a 32-ounce jar of Duke's mayo yesterday with a 7/21/13 expiration date. It was accompanied by whole wheat flour, panko bread crumbs, eggs and milk. Bottled water is just barely cooler than room temperature.

It's time to admit...... the refrigerator is on it's last leg. The freezer is fine, but empty. I just have cheese, mustard, lettuce, fruit and veggies left in the refrigerator.

I guess it's time to start shopping the January appliance sales. Just Do it!

    We just had to replace the washer, and are buying the matching dryer as well. The old one gave us more than 10 years before it cracked up.

    In the meantime my microwave stopped turning...

    I feel your pain too! Several years ago, we had one side of the refrig freezing things while the other side was just barely cold. I finally bit the bullet and did it!! Now I love my frig!!!

    I share your pain. My oven has a mind of its own now as to whether to constantly BEEP BEEP BEEP the timer, or whether to get hot or not. The stove is working OK. We had a repairman come out who offered to replace the control board for $364.00.

    I am pretty sure we did not spend quite that much for the oven 15 years ago emoticon
