U. Unbelievable...

So, I am home, I am doing pretty well.  Husband decided that I should call it a day, and I took some meds.  I was really groggy foggy, and was about half asleep, when I smelled something.  I woke him, and said, I don't think it's smoke, but does something smell odd to you?

He jumped up, went into the other room, and found our fridge was smoking.  The compressor died.

Soooo, we are doing our part for the economy, my poor husband had to go buy a refrigerator today.  Then he'll have to go to Mom and Dad's to pick up the food we had in the fridge and freezer, to put in the new one.

And I can't do a dam* thing about it.

There was a blurb I read once, "God never gives you anything you can't handle.  I wish he wouldn't be quite so confident in me..."

I think I can relate today...

  1. Honey, I stopped by to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. Hope you mend well and learn the lesson of 'taking a break.' As women, we have a hard time learning that lesson. I think God's faith in your ability should give you license to JUST CHILL! LOL

    Take care,

  2. Oh nooooooo!
    I hope, at the very least, you were able to capitalize on "Black Friday" bargains!

  3. How fortuitous that they are having all those black Friday sales! Sorry about your fridge though. Now go back to sleep and let him do the work.

  4. Thanks, one and all...

    Yes, I am trying to learn I don't have to do it all. And being on a walker, and dopey as I don't know what most of the day... I can't.

    It wasn't a black Friday wonder, but it looks like it will be a nice fridge. I have named it Grumbly, it sounds like sleeping bulldog. (This is a good thing, it's very quiet compared to our old one...)

  5. At least, in spite of the groggy, you noticed. How much worse if you had been deeply asleep!

    Right now, you get a free pass on the work; enjoy while it lasts.
