The last 6 months has given me the opportunity for a lot of new things. Not just new things but upgrades that were needed.
When I moved out of home anything I obtained I kept. And I still have. I guess you could call me a hoarder or maybe more of a “if it aint broke” kind a gal. Take for instance the TV I have. I’ve had it for maybe 7 years. It aint broke. But it isn’t the new tech. It aint huge. But it works. Why would I go buy a new one if this one is still working and I can still watch all my shows?
Entertainment unit? I got one. Sure it’s like 20 years old but still… I put a TV on there and it holds it.
Shit like that. I don’t like spending money if I don’t need to and if I’m the one out of everyone I know who has older shit I don’t mind. I still have the same stuff it’s just not new. BUT! I’ve definitely had some upgrades:
And we got a new one to add to this list….
Drum roll please…
To the average established person who’s reading this it probably doesn’t mean much. To everyone else, how great is this!!??
The background behind my current fridge goes like this. I’ve had this fridge since I moved out and it was previously my grandparents. My Pop (grandpa) used to have this sticker gun and he would date everything in sight. Inside of the fridge the date on it says 2003. Yes, it’s that old. 18 years old. It still works but not that good especially lately. The magnetic strip is definitely showing wear and the freezer produces so much damn ice that even if I defrost it (me hacking at it with a knife) it comes back in a week.
The biggest bust however is what it’s doing to my food. My freezer is at the top of the fridge. So why is shit in my cooler freezing? Why is my salad and fruit fucking freezing? It doesn’t matter how low I turned that thing down IT’S STILL FREEZING ALL MY FOOD! Putting a salad in the microwave doesn’t work.
But we’re moving on up. This new, beautiful, improved food cooling machine should be here shortly. It’s not even an upgrade from my old fridge. It’s from a different time. A different planet.
I’m finally going to get my almost dream fridge. It has French doors (ooo la la), it’s got a water dispenser, it’s got a child lock for the kids I don’t have. And as it is described “Sleek exterior and ultra quiet inverter motor”.
Now if it only had an ice maker that would be perfection. But that requires plumbing so I can’t do that right now. Maybe in my next house. But so far this is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better then what I’ve been dealing with and from what I’ve heard the choice of French door with a little device on the outside is a sign of wealth and “having my your shit together”, apparently.
As my sister said last night “WOW YOU’RE RICH!!”. I corrected her right away and explained that wasn’t an ice dispenser. But she said it didn’t matter, I still had something on the outside of the fridge.
Another friend said that this type of fridge makes her think that someone has their shit together. I like that one.
But my best friends reaction was great:
But now we play the waiting game. And I got to clean out the piece of junk wasting my space! It has served me well though. It’s like a piece of history is leaving.
BUT IT HAS TO GO!!
