another appliance bites the dust

Deployment gremlins… enough already!!

Yesterday, I noticed that the beer wasn’t chilling like it should. (or the sodas either for that matter). This am, the milk was warm. I took a look at the thermometer that I have on the shelf… 55 degrees, not good.
So, I pulled out the refrigerator, vacuumed and checked everything that I could think of. I searched online for ideas to fix a bum fridge, tried it, and nada. Still warm.
So… off to Lowes for a new refrigerator. It’s coming tomorrow. It wasn’t as big of a dent in the wallet as I was expecting. The opening isn’t large enough for a really fancy model, and I don’t want ice or water in the door or anything, so I was pretty happy when I picked out just the right one, and it was on sale to boot.
I think the only appliances left in the house from before Stuntman left are the stove and the toaster… and the stove has been acting funny.

Yikes :( I am glad that you found a good replacement, on sale, and hopefully the gremlins will leave you alone for awhile now!!

Ice and water in the door can be dangerous with kids! Good choice, glad you got it on sale.

Hmmm. Being the suspicious type I AM, I'd be wondering if this wasn't a ploy to replace all the appliances in the house... ;-)

Just kidding!!

Buck, it looks that way, doesn't it?
I really wasn't too upset when I needed to go buy a new TV last year... I can't wait for Stuntman to see it, it's freakin' awesome!

heh...our toasters have always been notoriously short-lived...

The timing is always *great* when the appliances go.

I am glad that you found a fridge on sale! :)

I hate when things break after they leave. It's just plain rude to us left at home to deal with it. :)

Glad you found a good replacement, and on sale too!
