Well, actually it is much older than that since we bought it used and previously loved. But today, it up and kicked the bucket. Now, we only paid $50 for it four years ago and well, it has earned its keep, saving its cost over and again. But today, it gasped its last freon – despite my praying over it several times today. However, a miracle is not out of the question… if Joshua can pray that the sun stop for 24 hours, I feel I can pray for a little freezer CPR.
The good news is that the freezer is currently packed full. This means, that the items will keep each other nice a cold for a while.
The bad news is that the freezer is currently packed full. So we will soon need to eat or save a lot of items. (I know your saw my recent shopping trip – I shop with my freezer in mind) and I recently made several meals for the freezer as well. A few pregnant friends just might be getting blessed here real soon.
More good news is that it is really cold out still (although warmer today than it has been for a while), so our garage should buy us some time until we figure out a game plan.
More bad news is new freezers are not cheap and I just looked in our budget envelope labeled, “money for when our freezer breaks” and well, it’s empty.
So, I have been babysitting the freezer today… try to balance how long to keep things in vs. moving them, not only to save the most food, but to avoid a mess as the freezer inevitably defrosts. Tonight we have Bible Study, but it looks like we just might be spending our Valentine’s Day at Cupid’s Appliance and Repair.
