Is my spirit showing?
I have unintentionally hid my true self for many posts. For that I apologize I seem to be posting mechanically with no thought of real writing, just commentary on pictures. That is over, watch out! Last Horse Standing made me realize the old and true saying, write what you know. So I shall and hope you welcome me back.
Ripples on a pond...that is what I've been dealing with today. It started with the death of one refrigerator.
We do not live in a mansion. It is Mom and Dad's old farmhouse added onto "the lodge". Lots of square footage and lots of problems. We lived in the lodge when we first moved here and then added it onto the main house. Anyway, I said all that to say this; we had one fridge in the lodge and one in the main house kitchen. The one in the main died and I saw no reason to buy another. Simply, that's right, I said SIMPLY, move the old one out and the working one into its place.
This is when the Ripple effect moves in!
We have no dolly to load things so we pushed the old one out the front door and down the steps. It sat there upside down and naked for all the world to see for two weeks. I finally told hubby what I wanted for Christmas was to make the old frige disappear. He did so this Friday. Best Christmas present I ever had!
Today, while hubby was napping in his recliner, I ask Andrew to assist in moving the working fridge into the kitchen so we don't have to run to the lodge for a cold drink.
First I pulled the fridge away from the wall...now you who clean all the time, I am sure have a spotless under the fridge environment. Not me, no, never me. It was not dust bunnies but dust dinosaurs who lurked under and behind my fridge. Still working on them. Some of the deceased ones have to be soaked.
So I am cleaning the fridge and reloading everything, cleaning the floor and Pine Sol starts my nose running so much I had to take a break and tell you how the real Gail gets things done.
Back to the Ripple thingy, I have to clean, I have to paint, I have to vacuum where we moved the rugs while pushing the fridge from one part to another. I have to wash the socks I found under the chair I moved. I have to wash dishes taken out of the fridge....it goes on and on.
Next time I have a rock to move, I will gently place it in the water where there will be no ripples.
