Take This Fridge And Shove It!!!

Friday, June 01, 2012

Me again...................I'm here with my fake grin............. which is actually more like a sneer/snarl. LOL. emoticon

I'm trying to find my half-full glass.............unfortunatel
y someone has peed in it. LOL. emoticon

I'm struggling with the 3 dorm fridges. Don't get me wrong, I am blessed to have them. They are better than no fridge but I want a real fridge and I want it now.

I finally had to break down today and go get some groceries and I did better than I thought I would at finding room for things I have to have. At times like this I realize how addicted I am to healthy food. I was practically hysterical this morning telling my husband that I have to have room for fruits, veggies, eggs, etc and he is like, "Couldn't you just eat a cookie or sandwich or something for the time being?" NO I COULD NOT, &$$#@()!!!!! I have to have decent food." He is always overwhelmed at the amount of produce there is around here but when you eat 4.5 or more servings of veggies a day and you can only shop once a week, you have a lot around. emoticon

I went to the post office and whined on my friend about my fridge problem, went to the bank, State Farm, IGA, Aldi, and Kroger. No way was I going to Wal-mart on the first of the month or on a Friday. The other stores were bad enough. I got home at 2 and had lunch. My son had the day off. He helped me make room in the dorm fridges. emoticon

Hubby came home and started working on getting rid of the fish fridge. It's a good thing because I was getting ready to kill him and cram him in it. The smell of a rotting corpse would be better than the putrid fish funk. I could not have stood this another minute. My son and he had to dismantle it and get it outside. I helped a little - mostly reverted to my cheerleading days. Jumping up and down, screaming, and squalling with mascara running down my face. HEAVE, YOU MORONS!! GET IT OUT!!! emoticon

I was kind of an evil cheerleader. My boyfriend was the captain of the team and I often wanted to scream, "Come on you @#%$$&^ idiot!!!" Okay, I'm a bad GF I guess too. Sue me. At any rate the fish box is out of the house and I am so glad to see the gaping hole in the wall. It still stinks in here but at least there is a chance that I can pinesol and Lysol this nightmare away. emoticon

    Also remember full-strength vinegar (if it won't ruin anything); leaves a pleasant smell while disinfecting.

    Probably better than Dollar Tree stuff.

    Unless you discover you want / need the intentionally lavender smells.

    So glad they got it out of the house!!! There are some things we should NOT settle on and this was one of them.

    Good for you; did it leak on porous surfaces?

    I love Lysol & Pinesol, too.

    Some of the cleaners at Dollar Tree really work; after it's clean and disinfected, try from Dollar Tree the lavender-scented floor cleaner (yes it's purple), looks like lavender generic pinesol bottle; and the different scents of Spic & Span, one of the Spic & Span says "great for pet odors" on it, I think it was purple/lavender too. Smelled really good. I am sensitive but these did not bother me, and I liked the job they did. They don't and are not intended to disinfect. The scents will help with lingering odors.

    I know exactly what you mean about avoiding stores on the first of the month.

    LOL! At least there's some humor there - makes it easier to deal with than bitchin' and moaning all of the time........ Glad you got the dead fish one out of there tho, don't think anything smells worse..

    Hang in there and jump up and down and keep 'em in line!! emoticon

    Okay, amazing lady...once again, you have made me laugh with your take on the stinky fridge. You rock! We sold DS fridge a few weekends ago...he was asking $100 and sold it for $85 I think. It worked great. We had it plugged in and cold so that folks could see it was a good one. I did have to do a major cleaning on it before we advertised it (on craigslist). He lived in a log cabin up the street from us and there was a leak in the ceiling that had a tarrish film all over the top and front of the poor fridge. But once cleaned, it was good to go. Hang in there! Hope you get a new fridge soon! Keep up the good work! You're doing great with your freggies! Spark on! emoticon

    OMG lol too cute I can see you with the mascara running down your face LOL I hope that you can get your windows open, fresh smell of cleaning instead of dead fish!! YEW when do you get your new fridge or did you?
    Hope you have a better fridge day!

    Sounds pretty yuckie! Maybe it will be out with the old, in with the new! You never know! I think assertiveness pays off in this situation so you will get your spirits back really soon! emoticon

    Haven't heard back from my sister yet, but she'll get back to me with the recipe to erase the fridge odor.

    We all know you're made of tough stuff, so you make us laugh. Great blog. I do know who frustrating it is to be without a fridge. We had to get a new one 3 days before Christmas. I told the RV repair place I wasn't going home until it was replaced and they believed me, they did it that day.

    I hate to say it, but you really had me rolling with your descriptive blog!!! Glad it is out of the house...may that half filled glass of pee should go with it. lol
    I do not know how you manage to get into some of these situations. My heart goes out to you. Glad that things are headed in the right direction now.
    So sorry that Murphy's Law won't leave you alone.

    Yeah it brings back the memories of my friend and me (on the BOTTOM) trying to heave that monstrosity UP my basement stairs to the back door (not sure how we did it I think we managed to fool ourselves into thinking it was "light").

    emoticon I wish you wouldn't make me laugh so hard while I'm trying to sympathize with you! It makes it hard to type so I can give you the appropriate love and support that the situation requires. emoticon
    I'm pretty sure that I'm going to have nightmares tonight about evil cheerleaders and convenient storage for uncooperative husbands! Remember there's always a place for you over on my Love of Horror Team.
    I'm so sorry about the fridge! I hope it gets better soon. Really I do!!

    wow. the visuals are hysterically funny.... emoticon even though I know it was not for you ......hopefully, you can get a real fridge soon, for I know those tiny dorm fridges do not hold very much at all.......will keep you in my thoughts and prayers that you get one soon......so that half full glass will stop getting peed in.....*snort*...patting you on the back.....I think that you have a right to be a wee bit uptight about all this......but just remember this too shall pass ....and things will be back to normal.
