Surviving without a refrigerator
Monday, June 13, 2011
Still no refrigerator, and it's getting to be a pain. I'm managing to live and stay pretty much on plan in spite of it though. At first the challenge was a little bit exciting, like camping out, but now it's getting tedious over the long haul. I'm into the third week with this now! But I will persevere, because that's what I do.
I've learned that I can't depend on people as much as I would like to or want to. The person who can best take care of me is me. Sometimes I've got to put pride aside and just become a nag. Sometimes that doesn't even work. Early Sunday morning I went on line and called a "Speedy 24/7 Repair service." I left my name and number with the telephone rep. We're going on 32 hours now, and the Speedy service has never returned the call, much less showed up for duty. He's fired. The guy that came over and looked at my problem last week, never called back, and I finally got another appointment with him for this past Saturday at 12 noon. At 2pm I called and left a message to find out what his intentions were for that day. Two full days later, no return call. He's fired! So now I've booked a repair appointment online with Sears for next Friday afternoon. Since the fridge is a Kenmore they should be able to show up and hang a door on their own product, right? Well, we shall see about that. Let's hope three's the charm as the saying goes.
In the meantime I'm just keeping on keeping on. Today I went out to the mall and took care of business, the shopping kind, enjoyed a slice of my favorite pizza, and had a fun afternoon. Tomorrow I have lots of catching up to do around the house, and need to get stuff together for an upcoming Chinese Auction. So it's going to be a relaxing fun-to-get-it-done-day. And I'll be getting ready for Wednesday's birthday lunch with my Weight Watcher friends.
Thank God for restaurants and fast food carry-outs!!
