You may remember that just as we were ready to leave the house on our 10 day trip, the ice maker dumped without the ice bucket in the freezer and we had to take everything out of the freezer . . here’s the blog post . . no need telling that story all over again!
Anyway, we got home yesterday afternoon and one rubber glove was sprawled out in the kitchen floor. Was it under the freezer? Had it been inside the freezer? I have no idea but look how it landed.
Honest . . I did not touch that glove. That’s exactly how it was when I saw it in the floor. I take that as a sign that 2018 is going to be a wonderful year! Maybe I’ll leave it right where it is for all of 2018 as a reminder . . or maybe I’ll print this picture and hang it where I see it daily.
Isn’t that glove’s position the funniest thing?
The rest of this story is that even after taking the tray out of the freezer and raking out the ice that was behind it, there must have been some smidgen of ice that kept the freezer door from sealing all the way so for 10 days, it was so very close to being shut that nothing inside had defrosted but not so close to being shut that the ice maker didn’t pour water down the back of the freezer and make a huge frozen clump so that I could barely open the freezer door and then we had to take everything out again.
I know there are folks who love those pull out drawer freezers but I am not one of them. Some day I’m going to have a side by side fridge/freezer again and a top load washer . . just not in 2018 because we’re on our practice for retirement budget and, according to Vince, I shouldn’t even need to buy many groceries in 2018. Poor Vince! 🙂
