If there is one thing I'm not, it's wasteful. So when we realized late last night that the refrigerator had kicked the bucket, I wasn't happy having to throw out so much food. I felt like I was being punished for going shopping with a friend yesterday morning! Of course, I know how Satan tries to deceive us into foolish thinking, so I quickly dismissed the feeling. But, I admit that I'm upset, frustrated, and overwhelmed by losing a necessity and having to buy a new one. It stinks! We've been spoiled with a refrigerator with ice & water in the door and similar models are so expensive. Life goes on though, right? Thankfully, between my parents, friend, and our chest freezer, we were able to save most of the frozen food. And on another positive note, our school week started off really good! One of these days, I'll start doing the weekly wrap up and blog more about our school days instead of the joys of home ownership!
