GAH! Some days it doesn't pay to get out of bed.

So this morning, as usual, I have eggos for breakfast. With peanut butter & jelly. Yum. I also throw a frozen meal thingy in my bag for lunch. We leave the house by 9:00 am.

::: time passes :::

We get home tonight around 7:30 pm as usual – and as I walk in the house I hear this strange humming/rattling noise. I follow my ears into the kitchen, and it’s the fridge making the racket! WTF, says I, and notice that the freezer door is partially open.

Oh. Crap.

Yeah, lost most everything in the freezer; there’s ice and frost where it shouldn’t be, and it’s making a Bad Noise. Ugh. I don’t know for sure what we should have done, but we tossed almost everything in the freezer, some of the older crap in the fridge, and put the rest in ice chests so we can turn the fridge off over night.

Plan is to clean the fridge tomorrow night (hey, that’s a bonus, right?) and turn it back on then. Plus side is that we’ve been majorly putting off a grocery run so perishables were at a minimum. It’s just all the marinades and condiments, and stuff like that. If we end up having to toss it, oh well.

Of course, the big freezer with the bulk of our meat is ok.

Sigh. Sometimes I wonder about me.

  1. I wouldn’t kick yourself too hard – it’s so easy to do that kind of thing.
    You might find that the fridge is fine once the temperature has had a chance to equalise. And as a bonus, you’re going to have a nice, clean fridge!

    • Yeah, I think the racket was probably the ice maker, which was probably half frozen. Giving it all night to thaw out is probably a good thing.
      Sigh.
