As they say when it rains it pours and since my darling husband Harry went to be with the Lord Monsoon season has been a long one here in my house.
We thought that my upright freezer of thirty two years finally bit the dust, I salvaged what I could and before I could get it thoroughly washed out it's smell would make you wonder if this was a weapon of the anti Christ in the end times.
Anyway I bought a nice yet smaller upright and before it was delivered tried to make a wooded platform for it in case of more flooding which I now hope is taken care of. My husband had done this with the old one but it woul'nt fit the new one.
I sawed the boards to perfection proud as I had never used a cieclar saw before and hoping that Harry could see me using his power tools sucsessfully but the wood split when a nail was driven in and trying to pull one out resulted in me almost knocking myself out as the hammer flew back and hit my for head. I then hoped Harry was spared this sight as he was always so protective of me. I gave the young man down the street with a growing family the job and although he didn't want to except money, bless his heart a small payment was well worth it.
After cleaning the area well with bleach where both flooding from a pipe backup and freezer leaked I decided to run the dehumidifier to dry the area. I plugged it in to the outlet where the freezer had been plugged in and no power. Tried to plug it in to other areas and it went fine. IT WAS THE OUTLET ALL ALONG NOT THE FREEZER!!!!
The new freezer was to be delivered the next day and I felt that maybe the old one could go before too long at a most inopertune time if thats possible so I have a new freezer in my cellar and an electrician coming on Tuesday.
Moral to this story folks is to check outlets before buying a new appliance, I thought that I was the only one to ever do this but talked to another women who said she and her husband did a similar thing too.
Take care and pray that I make good judgements from now on.
In God's Love,
