I went to Nugget to do the weekly wine tasting in the evening, then met 4 of my runningol mates for a 5-mile run. Robin & I settled into a nice pace but I didn't get right, kept feeling like I was really working to keep the legs moving. She has some shoulder issues, and a time constraint, so we cut the run short by about a mile. It's still the longest run I've done since '06.
This morning I tried to open the freezer door (it's a side-by-side unit) and it was stuck. I forced it open and found the ice cube holder half-empty, and a frozen blob at the bottom of the door. Pried it off and turned fridge & freezer to the limit, then took the dogs for a walk. When I got home there was no ice, and my cottage cheese was frozen. Oh, I was so unhappy.
I texted Chris and consulted my home warranty. For $60 I could've added the fridge but in my attempt to be frugal, I did not. Well, that cost me. Dang.
He did some research on his end, and I hit Best Buy (no delivery until Tuesday), a local appliance dealer (could deliver today but would cost $129 more), and a big box store. BBS can deliver tomorrow between 8-10 (there goes my bike ride w/my friends) and no charge to deliver and haul away the old unit.
Now I have 30 lbs. of ice in both the refrigerator and freezer sides, and all the magnets and stuff are cleared off the old unit. What a PITA.
So after installing the ice I thought I'd be productive and mow the grass. Guess whose lawnmower is waterlogged and won't work?
A glass of Chardonnay and a cigar instead. Gotta love winning.
