I just found out one of my fave knit designers, Emily Ringleman, got flooded out of her home in Baton Rouge. All you Ravelers out there, go check out her designs -- she's having a major sale to try to fund the basics she & her family need right now. Send her some luv!
Well, the plumber couldn't fix our fridge problem, so he cut off the water. That was last Wednesday, but the thing is still leaking. So we've priced new ones, meh...and thought about getting a repairman here, also meh...leaving it up in the air as to what we would do. We moved on to other homey issues: the carpet needs a deep cleaning, but we don't want to totally interrupt our lives to have strangers do that. Gee, if we could just find a steam cleaner that wasn't too expensive, we could do rooms in "zones" at our leisure. Then the Plaidman saw one in the HH Gregg ad in the Sunday paper. So we went over there looking for the Bissell, found & bought it, and found a tall narrow "out of box" (meaning new, returned to store) fridge with the ice & water in the door--and bought that too! The plumber will be back this Wednesday to install a pressure relief valve (and do some other stuff), and the new fridge will be delivered Thursday!!! I'M EXCITED, CAN YOU TELL?!?!?
