ok, sis is celiac, me sicker than a dog, and what happens? crap, that's what.

my stove broke, ice maker making a ton of noise. so bad it keeps you up at night and you have to turn it off.

did I mention my dishwasher sounds like it's taking off, won't clean worth a dang.

he says I ain't paying some jerk to come in the house and repair them. he's absolutely paranoid about strangers in the house

so it looks like I might be getting new appliances. well I have some money squirreled away.

went to lowes and they had a sale and said they would give me a miitary discount. whew that helped alot.

so he calls his friend and says you can have them and tells me I have to do without till wednesday.

never stops around here...ever.

anybody got a spare room...garage...heck even a barn?

UGh! What a nightmare! I'm sick and celiac too...eating out not usually an option, so if my oven/ stove broke...I'd cry too!

Hope your luck turns soon!

It's important to know that a refrigerator will need to be on for a full day (or more) before you can even place food it in, safely.

If it's been in a warehouse or on a hot truck for a while, it could take longer than on a winter's day, too. Just because the air blowing inside may feel cool to your hand after a short time won't mean it's ready.

Some models may need to sit a while before even plugging in if they get too jostled in the journey to you.

Be sure to find out the specifics for your new model as to how long before it will reach optimum temperature. A fridge thermometer might be a good thing to get, too.

Also to consider: Weekend retreat at a camp or holiday cabin, even hotel rooms with a fridge.

When I could go to an annual music retreat in the woods: Food provided but some with specific diets brought their own food. Fridges were only turned on when guests arrived for the weekend, off as they left.

Bad habit. Very dangerous way of operating. Good thing only a very few people brought their own food and most did not require a fridge. I'm glad I learned of this as I arrived, though, so I could eat all perishables that first night.

Still, a few people always got fairly ill. I suspected the Friday night potlucks with people hauling food from work, 2 hours away to the camp, then waiting for dinnertime, all the time, only one fridge in the dining area (which was only just turned back on as folks arrived).

Some years, one fantastic staff member was receptive to my call a day prior to "please turn on the fridges" . . . just don't think anyone ever made that a procedure.

Usually cool April around here lulled many into thinking, oh, the car is cold enough.

When the delivery people arrive, be sure to offer them a refreshing beverage and a light pick-me-up snack. Suggest they "put their feet up" to recharge for a minute.

Share a few jokes. That will surely make for a pleasant atmosphere, eh? Actually, I remember that sort of thing growing up. The Fuller Brush man, the Watkins Man. They did their jobs & did not dally, really, but it seemed like they were also a family member, just catching up.

They were always offered a cup of coffee. Now, I wonder how they did that at every house (and never asked to use the restroom).
