When it rains, it pours

The sayings "when it rains, it pours" and "trouble comes in threes" seem both to be true - at least for us. First, our heater is on the fritz. Our landlords are working to get this fixed, and luckily, we've been having a week of Indian Summer, with temps in the 70's. It's been gorgeous - so no need for heat!

Second, our oven broke. We are fortunate to have awesome landlords, so they ordered us a new one and the installation guys took care of everything. It's a flattop one, so no more cleaning those yucky burner pans!
Third, our fridge/freezer decided to die. So we spent our Saturday night cleaning out all our food ...


Then moving the old one down the stairs, and the new one up the stairs ... yep, we have a spiral staircase, so this was no small feat ...


(This picture is for you, Mom)

You can't see it very well, but I have a deep cut right across the bridge of my nose. The perpetrator of this wound?


That's right, it's our cooler. As I was unloading the frozen goods out of the cooler and into our new freezer, the lid fell down and the edge of the lid caught me on the bridge of my nose. Yeah, I bled all down my face for a while (ewww!) It looks a lot better today (when the picture was taken) than it did Saturday night. I'm starting to get a little black and blue under my eyes, so I think I'm going to tell everyone that I was in a fist fight ...

Sigh ... I lost to a plastic cooler. Plastic! That's totally my luck ...

At least my Gators won! Go Gators!!

holy cow! so many things at once! too bad you got a new oven though, or else we could have swapped no bake recipes... ha ha jk

I've got a brilliant idea... we can start a new reality tv show, we'll call it "Sarah vs. the Cooler". People will watch it, cause it's on tv, even though we won't really have anything happen.

You'll be famous and I'll be rich!!! (I want the majority of the profits, but you'll get hazard pay since those coolers can be pretty brutal.)

At least you have all new cool things in the house. Hopefully it won't take too long to heal. It looks like it hurts.

I hope that you at least got to eat a quart of ice cream while you were cleaning out your freezer. Glad to hear you have good landlords who are fixing those pesky appliances. Now if you could only think of some good payback for that cooler...

Sorry about all your bad luck - your nose looks like it hurts. At least that's one perk about being renters. Yes, we are going to the Blaze thing this weekend - if Chris gets home in time. I should have thought and we could have coordinated. We'll let you know if it's worth the trip! Allison
