With Christmas coming on so quickly, and entertaining time here, my fridge decided to go on the fritz...as did my Bunn coffee pot. Luckily the Keurig still works...at the mo anyway. And my Shug and I have been looking for a fridge for quite some time, as we could hear it cracking and popping in the night. We finally found one. We didn't want a huge fridge for our basement room. And we didn't want to pay huge money for one, as we will be buying another one, hopefully this year, for upstsairs. And they delivered it on Sunday morning. What a mess.
The fridge actually looks the same, except for the front. It's smooth, like when I was a kid. Now here's a funny story. When I was a kid, Mom decided she wanted a brown fridge. Well it was the 60's. Brown was in. So she painted the white refrigerator with brown paint! Yup, with a can of paint and a paint brush. When I was bored, I would stand by the fridge and peel the paint off of it. Because that's what the paint did. It peeled off. But not all the way. Kind of like nail polish when it looks like shit and you don't have any remover! So when we got our smooth front fridge, I called Mom and asked her if she wanted to paint it!
(I know. I said the "s" word. But here's the thing. It really did look like shit!)
I use my fridge for a family photo gallery.
I quickly got stuff all put away, in time to leave for
I also thought it was very cool the way they fixed their hair!
On Monday I got up and finished decorating.
I only drug out a couple of boxes and I did not take everything down the way I usually do.
I did not have time to do full blown decorating because I had these lovely ladies over for Breakfast Tuesday morning. One of them couldn't make it because her 92 year old Mother was having knee replacement surgery.
Quick! Look in the background. Our room is clean! It's decorated! It's ready for Christmas! I'm spending the next few days getting ready for Christmas Eve.
Everything always works out. It does.
