The fridge saga is now done,
other than getting food back from neighbours.
Speaking of that, we are really blessed in our neighbours,
two of whom lent us freezer and fridge space!
Last picture of old fridge with broken-when-we-moved-in
Both Mr. Husband and I agree that we'd rather
have more space in our freezer than
an ice or water machine and are so glad
we found one that did NOT have this feature!
(We only had one choice for the side by side model
that we wanted to keep as it works well with the
tight corner and dish washer).
The people, Spanish speaking, who delivered it,
were very kind and worked quickly.
The only time you will see this fridge without magnets :)
I decluttered while I was putting things back.
I love all the family pictures...
So I am happy about that!
And SO HAPPY that the fridge is magnetic!!!
I am glad I started my posts on
when one is in times of desolation.
I know this can be a hard topic;
blogs often are seen as 'fun' or 'beautiful' but life
is life and hard times are very real.
So I am happy to start writing on
the things I learned during the years of struggle I had.
None of us knows the future or what struggle may
come again in my life;
while I wish only for the inevitable (people dying)
we really do not know what each day will bring.
But we have a God who loves us
and who can help us get through the difficult times...
Now I just have to clean house and get things in order;
I got laundry done but the folding and putting away is mounting;
I found this to be inspiring in my search for
how to manage time, from MamaBirdEmma.
It's when things are all pulled out from the normal that is so challenging;
between plans falling through, funerals, fridges dying and other things
that all make up our lives,
it's hard to get in a routine and stick to it.
But I will keep trying...
