My new fridge
It is a black Kenmore. This past week has not been the best week at our house. We have been living thru Murphy's law and it hasn't stopped yet. The breakdown of our 18 year old fridge was just one more in the list of bad timing, etc. The old fridge was here when we purchased our home and all indications were that it was as old as the house. Among some other problems, we knew that it was going but the other evening while Doug and I were eating dinner (in front of the TV), I heard a strange noise, like water running. As I stood and looked into the kitchen which is where the sound appeared to be coming, I saw a huge growing puddle of water on my hardwood floor! The water dispenser was running and neither of us had been near it!! We got that contained and the water turned off to the fridge. Then a couple days later the door broke. And the flap no the ice dispenser had been broken for a long time and we had just "bandaided" that one. So we talked and decided to bite the bullet, even though financially this was not what we really needed at the moment. We went to the Sears outlet store and found this lovely black Kenmore and had it delivered on Monday. The good thing is that my fridge is all nice and organized and hopefully will stay that way! I guess I should have taken a picture of the "declutter" that I threw away! I am making use of some storage containers for containment and organization. :) So far I like it. The old fridge was a dirty cream. It used to have this fake black front on it but our clothes would catch on it when we walked by so I finally ripped it off! I do like the black.
