Hi all! Did you see that date up there? 2022? Wow. Anyway, it is a new year and I have a few good smiles, but I’ll limit it to one. OK, I will link back here with my owl post later today….
Some of you may know that a few years ago I bought a “new” house on Cape Cod. “New” means different, since the house is about 175 years old.Yeah, a lot of issues with old houses. One thing is most of the utilities were missing or old. The very first thing we wanted to replace was the refrigerator. We did order one in early 2020. After that we needed a new hot water tank/heater, new washer and drier, etc. But the ‘fridge never showed up. We went back last year (2021!) and found that because the business was sold there was a mix up. So we ordered again… This was in June.
And it showed up! We had it installed last Monday!
So the old ‘fridge was by a door, so I figured they had brought it in that door. The movers took the door off (old hinges had to be removed from the wall…) but the old ‘fridge wouldn’t fit. There is another outside door across the kitchen. We measured and it would work. Well, if the storm door were removed plus a lot of trim that was put in to support the storm door.
Sigh. They left and I spent the morning ripping apart that doorway.
But when they returned in the afternoon the old ‘fridge slipped right out and the new one right in.
I put the door frame and storm door back together the next afternoon (it rained all morning), but in the mean time, I filled the new ‘fridge.
What a difference! It is so, so much better!
So that is my smile, after almost two years waiting, the Cape house finally has a new ‘fridge :)
What made you smile?
(A reminder – There will not be a Smile Recap post next week).
Come on, I’m sure you smiled at least once last week. Why don’t you share it? I hope you can join in!
Here is list of “rules” and guiding ideas. If you don’t have time to read it right now, just remember that this is an exercise to spread positivity. Don’t smile about the misfortune of others. Don’t smile in a way to excludes others. Make sure a 12 year old can read it.
To join in, write a post to share your smile and then leave a comment on this post with a link to your smile. Or, if you prefer, do a pingback to this post (pingback = have a link from your post to this one) (Note – pingbacks have been very inconsistent – please leave a comment :) ). You can post any time until next Sunday evening (to be simple, I will say midnight GMT, which is 7 PM Sunday for me). Note – I am no longer compiling the Smiles into a Recap post. I’ll try to get the new smile out between 7 and 8:30 Eastern Time.
