End of disclaimer.
Today has been a doosey. It actually all started yesterday. I got to go grocery shopping by myself. It was a peaceful break as I filled my cart with fruits and vegetables, fresh tortillas, cheese, milk, yogurt. Perishables. Lots and lots of perishables.
Then I came home, just in time to make dinner. I was excited: fish tacos and avocado salad. Perfect, easy, yum. We sat down to dinner and decided with such a menu, a beer was in order. I noticed it wasn't exceptionally cold. I decided to eat dinner in denial. Afterward, I was cleaning up while Nick graciously put the boys to bed. I started to load the refrigerator with our leftovers, my fears were confirmed. Cooling system broken. Again. For the second time in two months. In our brand new fridge. DANG IT. Last time it took a week to fix, a week of living out of our tiny cooler, throwing away nearly everything, and generally feeling sorry for ourselves.
I made Nick call LG. I told him exactly what to say and that he better lay the smack down. Why didn't I just call myself? I am so bossy.
And of course, they can come on Monday. Oh no no no NO. I called them back today and told them kindly, but firmly that I have three little boys that I have to feed all day long and I cannot live out of a cooler for nearly a week. And this has happened before. And we want a new fridge.
So a guy is coming tomorrow. My fridge is very very clean, and we have three large bags of ice keeping all of our fresh groceries from growing some deadly bacteria. I hope.
To top it all off, Lute and I had a real winner of a day together. Jealousy, potty training accidents, blatant disobedience. Lots of frustration. Lots of whining. Lots of tears and throwing of self on the floor (him, not me, just to be clear) and nap time could not come soon enough. Thankfully, he woke up refreshed, we have reconciled and now we are maxing out on child labor while he helps his dada pick weeds.
yep, that about sums it up.
And now I am off to make a seriously huge batch of stir fry with all of those fresh vegetables. Ugh.
I will be thankful tomorrow, I promise.
