I got the brilliant idea this morning -- don't know WHY I didn't think of it before -- to buy a new refrigerator -- the kind with NO FILTER IN THE BACK!!! I'm sure the insurance company isn't going to pay for my new frig, but they should. I have saved them a fortune by not taking the advice of the mold people and tearing down half my kitchen. Plus, I'm keeping the old carpet if I can. I'm hoping the fact that it is currently rolled up and folded over isn't messing it up.
Nasan -- one of the remodel crew -- attached a brand new filter to the back of the refrigerator yesterday afternoon. When Jerry got home a few hours later, he pulled out the frig to check Nasan's installation. The ****! water line through the filter was leaking in TWO PLACES! What a royal pain! I told Jerry we were going to have to think of some other way to get water to the frig, or just live without it.
I just heard from the very nice clerk, Michael, from Lowe's refrigerator department. He got me $100 off my new frig because I live in the deep woods, another 5% off because I used my Lowe's card, and $400 off because I took the white floor model that nobody on earth wants but me. Everyone else wants stainless steel. I had no idea refrigerators are SO EXPENSIVE these days. I have always wanted one with double doors on top and the freezer drawers on the bottom, and that is what I got.
Wishing my friends a WONDERFUL long weekend. Hope you are blessed to be with family and friends. Jerry says he is going to fix the dam behind our little pond this weekend. To my OKC friends: I'm coming back next week!
