Oh, there are so many little things that go unnoticed in this world. Things like your refrigerator compressor…
I didn’t even know that my fridge had a compressor. Friday when I saw black gunk leaking out of the side of the fridge, I cleaned it up, barely even mentioned it to Dan, and went on about my business. The next day our fridge was dead and our food was room temperature. Dan dumped the things that couldn’t be saved and bleached out our old fridge. (Luckily for me, I was working downtown on Saturday)
We kept a list of the items that we had to throw out, in hopes that renters insurance will cover some of our losses. We saved all of the condiments, oils, dressings and pickled items to be reassessed when the new fridge arrives tomorrow. Any tips on how to discern what should be tossed? I’m pretty much planning to make decisions based on smell and appearance.
Since our landlord had to buy a new fridge for us anyway, I asked if he might entertain the idea of a working dishwasher too… And he agreed! I am SO excited. We have had a mini portable dishwasher for 3 years now and the idea of a full-size plumbed in dishwasher is just so lovely.
See how the mini dishwasher sits infront of the old non-working one and has to be connected to the faucet tap? Having a new built in dishwasher is going to really open up our kitchen and I’ll be able to use the sink while running a load in the dishwasher. The new (fancy german) one arrives on Wednesday!
