A little humor goes a long way

A $300 computer board for our 8-year-old Kenmore fridge (which has a $750 2-year-old compressor) is going to look beautiful wrapped with a red ribbon and green tinsel underneath the tree!

"Life is maintenance" for EVERYONE and happens daily, weekly and monthly---but seems to ALWAYS happen to us before a major gathering for a holiday/celebration!

Surviving these moments for me.....................
 and my new favorite outlet is the 24/7 Comedy Radio played in my van as I drive around town!  Often, my loud outbursts of laughter release my inner comedian and bond me with the voices I am hearing. Remarkably, just a 10-minute drive to the grocery store (to pick up some diet coke or mint M&M's) energizes my resolve to tackle daily maintenance. 

The comedians I listen to (BEWARE:  some are rated "R" for "raucous" laughter) cause me to:

•  Laugh at the little things

•  Control my emotions and keeps me from committing a crime

•  Turn the evil demon waiting to pounce into a mellow monster 

•  Balance my "body fluids" (look it up in Wikipedia, ok!)

Now I am going to my next appointment in my van and blasting 24/7 Comedy Radio because the $300 fix DID NOT work and the real fix will cost a whopping $600!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (or the replacement cost of a new refrigerator--we get to choose!)

Meaning:  In the last two years, we will have paid $1,300 to have an appliance keep our milk cold, our wieners thawed and our pizza frozen and now we get to do it AGAIN!

Happy Holidays to us!!!!!!!

  1. That stinks! What rotten timing for you; sorry to hear of your dilemma! Our fridge conked out last year (but, at least it was 18 yrs old), and it was a real pain to wait for the new one to be delivered. Thankfully Home Depot delivered and installed it within a week, so I guess I have nothing to complain about! Good luck weathering the storm!!!
