If you happen to be driving down the street and see a cooler outside of a house sitting in the snow…you’ll know where we live. Mr. Refrigerator decided to pull a little “joke” on us today and seek out some warmer temps. Thankfully, Mr. Freezer didn’t play along and he’s still as cold as ever.
I’m pretty sure it’s not a joke, though. Something is definitely wrong with our fridge. It’s a bummer and it’s inconvenient but there is a silver lining. When I think about it…there are many of them.
1.) It’s still winter where I live and the temps are cold. We can put
it food outside to keep the food from spoiling.
2.) We don’t have much in our fridge at any given time so it all fit in a single cooler.
3.) Our fridge was purchased about 3 years ago so mechanical portions of it are still under warranty.
4.) If for some reason the warranty does not cover the repair and we have to get a new fridge, we have an emergency fund. There will be no charging on the credit cards!
Over the next few days I will search and ask around to see if I can at least pinpoint the problem with our fridge. Perhaps it is something that we can fix ourselves. If not, then I’ll call a repair man and take it from there. I really hope we don’t have to take money out of our emergency fund, but that is what it’s there for.
