a tale of two refrigerators

Had to go shopping tonight to buy a new refrigerator.  I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to enjoy the experience.  I was right.

The store where we make all of our major appliance purchases had a grand
 opening of their new wing today.  This was a plus as we got a very good deal, however they were PACKED!

This is the one I wanted.  I’m not a fan of Stainless Steel, but my husband really is. Since all of our appliances are cheap, in the next 10 years or so we’ll have to replace them all. So I figured now was the time to start converting.  This beautiful thing could have been mine for a very reasonable price.  My husband kept saying two things.  Whatever you want is fine, I don’t care and I’m not a big fan of Side by Sides. 
So every time I almost got my side by side he would make a sad noise and an ugly face.  So, we got this.

Which by the way was a VERY good price indeed!  It will be delivered in the morning.  I really wanted a bigger freezer just so I could get rid of my ugly chest freezer. Oh, and because I just like it if you’re getting something different, get it very different.

Still looking for more Scrabbling partners!  I’m slowly but surely getting better.  Only takes a few seconds at a time, whenever you have time….any takers?
