The little boys were playing with their guinea pigs yesterday, as they always do.
Thor decided to sit next to Ryan and Rusty.
Shortly after this picture was taken, Thor decided Rusty wasn't using the carrot any more, and ate it.
It was a whole lot easier to giggle at Thor eating carrots than to be mad that I've joined Pam and Debbie in the ranks of broken appliances. Yes, one of my refrigerators quit working. The good news is that many of the kids are currently at college so I don't need as much cold storage space. Also, I have a spare fridge in the basement that usually holds stuff like ginger ale and yeast (which I buy by the case), which can take the overload if I really need it. The bad news is that, unlike the basement fridge, which died 4 days before the warranty expired, so Sears had to replace the compressor FOR FREE, this one is 2 years out of warranty. And a friend tells me that nowadays it usually costs more to repair appliances than replace them.
Gee, I wonder why we're running out of landfill space?
I think I'll go make a coffee cake and make the house smell better. Watch the kids and hubby follow their noses to the kitchen in about half an hour!
(Tessa, these pictures are for you, Cole & Cayleigh!)
UPDATE: My washer also crapped out this afternoon. In desperation, I began calling every appliance repair service in the phone book, until I found one who says he'll come out tomorrow afternoon. We shall see if Leonard is any good....
