So here we were waiting for the third act of the Ceiling Drama (see Chicken Little Wasn't Kidding)–
Act One – stain, denial, union of ceiling to floor, more denial, drip, drip
Act Two – living room furniture piled together as though a giant hand had lifted one corner, men with mysterious gadgets testing for water, saws, fans, plumber.
Act Three – yet to be staged – de-furnituring the room completely, men on stilts, and, ultimately, new ceiling.
I had tidied the house that day and yesterday evening the two of us were each happily settled for the evening.
Moron that I am, and completely forgetting about the gods of whimsy, I burrowed a little deeper
into the couch and remarked, “Isn’t it nice to have everything back in place
and the house back to normal?”
Mr. WW nodded agreement and went to the fridge for a snack but soon said, “Well, that can’t be good.”
Me, “What is it?”
He, “There’s no light in the freezer.” And then in the same spirit as the three bears’ discoveries, “And there’s no light in the fridge.”
I now have an exciting new appointment in my calendar for next week, more men to enter my life, and a shiny new $200 controller board coming for our big white friend.
Oh, and the aerobic bonus of a trip to the tiny basement fridge every time I want an egg.
It never rains........ReplyDelete
if things come in threes, you aren't done yet.ReplyDelete
Good gracious- well they say it comes in threes so I would watch the car closely. That's how it goes here. Have a wonderful, problem free weekend!ReplyDelete
Things come in three's I've heard....brace yourself.ReplyDelete
Maybe the incoming foot of snow scheduled for Sunday night counts?Delete
Thank goodness you do have a back up. Things do come in bunches don't they?ReplyDelete
Oh, no! At least it's winter and you don't "need" ice cubes.ReplyDelete
Agreed. And since we do have a little one as back-up in the basement, my issues actually fall into the category of "first-world problems".Delete
I am sending you all the positive energy I can. Solving house and appliance issues are mentally, physically and wallet draining.ReplyDelete
Good grief! It is always something! I can imagine all that went through your mind when your husband said, well that can't be good. Doesn't that just go all over you. :)ReplyDelete
That's enough trouble for one week.ReplyDelete
It must have been the week for Refrigerators..ours was just $90 and it was fixed within 18 hours. Hope your ceiling repair goes well:)ReplyDelete
Your fridge has a freezer light?? I've never heard of such a thing. The fridge yes, but never the freezer compartment.ReplyDelete
Hope everything is fixed and back to normal soon.
I didn't know it did either until my husband said it was out.Delete
We're just all kinds of cutting-edge technology here, I guess.
Haha. That's how I feel.Delete
Ouch. When it rains it pours...or did someone already pull out that tired saying?ReplyDelete
Not sure I appreciate that reference to water, what with a leaky ceiling and all!Delete
Mercy! Two fridges go kaput in a row from my blogging friends (you and Far Side). There's something going on here. If there is a third one, I'm going back to bed. :-)ReplyDelete
Obviously a fridge conspiracy.Delete
They can talk to each other, you know. . . .
Oh no! At least you have a backup fridge. If ours went out we'd just have to eat everything immediately!ReplyDelete
