This is getting old

I’ve been trying to focus all day today. There’s something that’s been nagging at me all day and won’t let me think about anything else for too long.

It all started with water on the kitchen floor, about two or three weeks ago. We took everything out and saved what we could in coolers. Then we let it defrost completely before plugging it back in the next day.

Two weeks later, same situation. Ordered a new part and spent a week living on take-out. Part finally came in. Brother-in-law came over and helped us install it (all right, he did all the work). Plugged it back in. It seemed to be working OK and it was getting cold. This morning, more water on the floor.

Fortunately, we are renting our home and the refrigerator is the landlord’s responsibility. Unfortunately, since it is the landlord’s responsibility, we are at her mercy as we wait for her decision on how to handle this. We’re thinking she’s going to buy a new refrigerator. The question really is how long is it going to take?

Hopefully, not too long or I’m going to gain 25 pounds eating out every day and won’t be able to write about anything other than food and refrigerators.
