One of my blog friends, Synthia, sent this to me--it cracks me up. With Hubby not working, I have to wonder how long it will take before he becomes one of these guys! He's actually kept pretty busy so far. Today he spent a good part of the day hanging around the Sears appliance department.
Let me ask you this: Do you have a refrigerator you love or hate? Ours has been having issues for awhile now. Years, really, but the issues have become more critical in the last couple weeks, and we feel it's time to replace it before it quits altogether. Here's our quandry, though. The one we have now is a side-by-side with an ice and water dispenser in the door. The side-by-side is a bit of a problem because there's a wall on one side that prevents the freezer door from opening fully. We love the convenience of the ice and water dispenser, so we were thinking ideally we'd like something with an ice and water dispenser in the door but with the freezer either on the top or bottom. Unfortunately, there seem to be few models out there that meet this criteria and the one or two I found had really poor reviews. Then we thought we'd forego the dispenser, but the popular thing these days seems to be a bottom freezer, and Hubby--because of his muscular dystrophy--has a hard time bending and straightening up. So it looks like we're looking at another side-by-side. Do you have an opinion on any particular brand, one way or another? And, by the way, we're looking at a mid-price range.
Remember Dianne won the giveaway of the Quilter's Kitchen book the other day and I said I'd have to figure out where I'd put it for safekeeping? Well, I was only half joking. I knew the book was here last week but I hadn't seen it for several days. Over the weekend I kept an eye open for the book and sporadically checked here and there, but no luck. By this morning, I was becoming a little more concerned, so I spent a good 20 minutes looking in every place I could think of--still no book. I was half way resigned to just packaging up my copy of the book and sending it on to Dianne; I knew that eventually the other copy would turn up. I'd given up the search and was taking a bath when it occurred to me to wonder whether Hubby had done something with it. Sure nuf! I found it in the garage on one of his tables along with a couple westerns I'd bought him and a cookie cookbook. I guess he's really taking his weekday cooking duties seriously! Dianne, if you're reading this, I'll get the book in the mail tomorrow. (And if you're NOT reading this? I'll probably STILL get the book in the mail tomorrow! 'Cause I'm responsible that way!)
Hubby's getting out of cooking most of this week, so he won't be needing the cookbook anyway. Tonight was the embroidery class, tomorrow night will likely be spent at Sears and any other appliance store that seems promising, and Wednesday night is another quilt class. By the way, I WAS the cool kid tonight with my snazzy new binder cover! A few of the ladies read my blog, so they knew what was coming. And I'm afraid I gave our teacher a hard time about the long, long list of things we were required to bring, but she's actually a good friend and took the razzing well, although she DID give us a bit of homework to complete before the next class in May. Just as long as there are no tests, I'll be happy! Oh, and treats. Yep, as long as she keeps bringing us treats, I'll be happy!
Well, it's WAAAAY past my bedtime, so I'll say goodnight. Thanks for stopping in to visit!
