So. Let's see. First there was the funeral, then the virus, then the ice...now, my freezer has died. Died to the point that it is cheaper to *replace* it than to fix it. *sigh*
And it's a 20.6 cf freezer, too.
So, today, instead of lounging around the house, enjoying the lack of company, I get to go out (with my FIL, thank you very much!) and buy a freezer. It's one thing we just really can't live without - I have a growing 5 yo boy that is already displaying teen tendancies (he is currently eating every 30 minutes. FULL meals, mind you - prednisolone does that to him) and a daughter that becomes ravenous when she hits a growth spurt.
The bright side? I was able to toss out a bunch of old stuff that we will never eat. (Yeah, I'm stretching here). We were able to stuff most of the "usuable" stuff into the house freezer (it's a side-by-side, so not a whole lotta room)...so I haven't lost a bunch of food, but Still.
The repairman was nice, and told me he *could* fix it, but....chances were something else would die when he put the new ($500 parts only) compressor on.
So, as soon as the bank opens, I am headed out. Sears has some nice (smaller) freezers on sale, so......*sigh*
Must fix breakfast now.
