In the past couple of months, we began noticing some problems with our refrigerator. A couple of times it leaked water. And there always seemed to be a constant layer of ice in the freezer, no matter how many times we chipped it out. Finally, we started noticing that it was running a lot. And loudly. That made it official. It was time for a new one.
We can't complain. The old one which Tim had before I was in the picture provided more than 15 years of service, which isn't bad.
Besides, it finally gives us an opportunity to get that brushed-nickel, French door fridge that we've been eyeing for the past couple of years. It cost us some nice scratch, but let's just say thank God for tax refunds! :)
