For the past 7 days, it has been chaos!! Chaos, I tell you!
Sunday: Stuff in the freezer started to melt, because I thought the door wasn't shut right...not the worst thing, right?
Monday: We are trying to teach Brendan how to be gentle, with people and animals. Bryan took Fletcher, our Cockatiel out of his cage so Brendan could see him. Well, Brendan gets just a little too excited when the birds come out and he is near them. He terrorizes them by screeching his happy squeals, and
tries to pull their tails and poke them with his little fingers. No one likes being grabbed and poked, and Brendan grabbed his wing really fast, and wouldn't let go! I was freaking out thinking he was going to get hurt, so I tried to take Fletcher out of Brendan's grasp, but as I did, Fletcher bit me really hard and I am now left with a lovely hole in my finger. Yes, it hurts and it's not closing yet, so we shall see what happens with that. Fletcher is the best bird, who has never EVER bitten anyone and I love him! I really can't blame him for biting, you should have seen the feathers he lost :-(. Just in case you haven't seen him before, here is a video of him singing " The Andy Griffith Show" theme song. We have been working on this for years!
Still Monday: I walk in the kitchen, and there are melted popsicles on the floor of the kitchen. Um, I thought I closed that door shut! I open the freezer and everything is practically melted, and I have a rainbow sticky mess of popsicles melted alllllll over the freezer. We call a repair guy out. Turns out that the compressor on our 14 month old brand new refrigerator is broken. I am less than thrilled, obviously.
Monday Night: I worked part of the day, but set out to buy ice, a large cooler, and a mini fridge to try and salvage any food we have.
Let's skip Tuesday, because it was the same old crap, different day....
Wednesday: Soooo, after $250 in bad food we threw away later, we are still trying to quickly eat what we can so the rest of our food doesn't go bad.
How long am I without a fridge???? Until September 11th!!!
Yes, I had an argument with Sears.
So, the silver lining part??
Well, we are getting our food replaced, and the parts to repair the freezer arrived today, though that doesn't change the repair date of 9/11 when the guy can fix it. hmmmmph....
Ohhhhh, and I am excited because I bought a $60 dress at The Gap last week for $17, then this week it went down in price more, so they price adjusted the dress down to $8!!! Yay!!! Major win, right??
Oh, more silver lining????
It's Labor Day Weekend!!!
So this means a sale, just for you!!
With all this ish going on, I figure I should spread some happiness with y'all!!
Yay, so take advantage of that!
Hope you all have a happy and safe holiday weekend!
