You Might Be a Redneck

IF you use your refrigerator freezer as your actual refrigerator.
Before I left for Arkansas last week, our freezer quit freezing. Luckily we have a deep freeze in the garage. We caught it in time and it wasn't a big loss of food. We knew we had to do some serious shopping for a new refrigerator soon because the refrigerator was not cooling as it should. Weeeeellllll, while I was enjoying a great time in AR, the refrigerator went completely out on one of Bryan's longest days and he didn't get home until past 9:00 p.m. to find this out. The refrigerator had cooled down so much that a can of biscuits exploded in the door!!! Bryan had a mess on his hands for sure. The funny thing is our freezer stays cooler than the refrigerator did but it just doesn't freeze. So all refrigerated items are now in our freezer of the refrigerator. Make sense??

I'm so thankful for all the research and price comparison Bryan did on new refrigerators. He made it to where all I had to do was walk in the store, look at 2 models, and decide. We are getting a black bottom mount (I'm not sure if that's exactly the right "appliance" lingo).


The bad thing......the store called yesterday to tell me it was on back order until next Tuesday, October 28th!!!!! I told him no problem unless my freezer quit refrigerating!!!!! Needless to say I have not made any huge meals for Bryan and I. Our left over storage is very limited!!!

I guess it could be worse. This could be our situation............


How did people make it in the olden days? :)

Oh my word!!! That is hilarious. I bet Bryan was none too happy to come home to the Biscuit Explosion of 08. But, I am glad ya'll got it all worked out and have such a cool and chic fridge on the way!

Yuck! I am glad you were able to get a new one though!! I love modern times and the fact that we have electricity for "frivolous" things such as a fridge! :)

Faith said...

Oh no! This is kinda funny...easy for me to say, huh? Glad you are getting a new one and I hope it will come even sooner than expected!

Kim said...

Oh, I want one with a bottom freezer! I can just pictures biscuits exploding in the fridge! How funny :)

Oh my goodness I cannot imagine coming home to biscuits exploding! I am so excited for you about the fridge you have on order! It is beautiful and I so want a bottom freezer on my next one!

Hope you're freezer keeps refrigerating and that new one gets there sooner than expected!

Cute picture of "the olden days." Our old refrigerator had a very slow freon leak, so every two or three years, we had to have it serviced and it was such a pain to have to clean it out/find another place to keep everything. Once, Wayne went to our camp and got the fridge from there and brought it home. You're right, though! How did they do it back then?

Oh boo ~~ I do not like appliance problems, especially refridgerator issues. Ours went out the day of our first NOG Bible study class this summer at our house ~~ oh the joy!! Well I prayed and it kicked on long enough to get us through until we got a new-ish one.

Yeah for new-ish refridgerators!!

Blessings to you, Dawn

ha ha! that is so funny! i mean, i'm so sorry to hear that! ;-) today judy mentioned putting those old "sporty" chairs on her back porch andi told her not to that it would look tacky...like using a freezer for a fridge! she laughed so i'm assuming she knew your situation. that is exciting to get a new fridge though. yipee! oh, & i'm glad ava's loving on you isnt getting old. she REALLY likes you and bryan.

I don't know how they made it either. They always say they didn't know any different, but I think I would have been one worn out, gripy woman. ha!

I love the new one you picked out!
You'll love it.

Seriously, I could not have lived long ago. My recent camping out experience has taught me that. Sorry I've been so absent lately. I'm going to try and do better:)
