I’ve mentioned it enough on here that everyone probably knows how much I dislike my fridge/freezer that’s in the house. When we first moved here, we were renting and the water in the faucets was horrible so we were using bottled water and buying ice. Even Speck wouldn’t drink the tap water. We bought a fridge that did not have ice/water on the door. It has the freezer on the bottom, French doors at the top. There is not a single thing I like about that fridge/freezer.
This morning I opened the freezer to get ice and while the drawer was out, the ice dumped. It all goes into the floor of the freezer and you cannot get to it unless you take everything out of the freezer and pull the drawer completely out . . which I cannot do and Vince was gone. I got a yardstick and tried scraping the ice out but that wouldn’t work so the freezer sat with the door/drawer partially open for an hour or so til Vince got home. Honestly, if I had been dressed, I would have gone somewhere and bought a new freezer/fridge. I hate to do that because we’re not going to be here probably more than a year or so but I do not like that refrigerator at all.
Then . . we have three big freezers. It’s actually the newest one that has never been good about sealing shut. We should have sent it back when we first got it but we didn’t. Vince has replaced the gasket on it and that didn’t solve the issue. I actually think the door is bent. I have to defrost that freezer two or three times for every once I defrost the other two.
Yesterday I opened it to get meat out for dinner tonight and . . it didn’t close. Vince went into the shop and there was water everywhere. So much of what was in there had defrosted and had to be thrown out. We turned it off, took out the things that were still frozen solid, put those in coolers, defrosted the freezer and put that stuff back in the freezer and threw out everything else.
Every day it seems, I tell Vince “I just want to move to a condo on the beach and go out to eat every night!” No garden, no critters, nothing to maintain. We both know that’s not a lifestyle for us but some days, it seems like a great idea.
