You'll never believe what happened! I was sore enough yesterday, as you may recall. Well, I completely filled up this big PUR water container in my frig...went to put it back...and...you guessed it. Murphy's Law. It slipped out of my weak hand and crashed to the floor...
...bouncing against the bottom shelves...landing upright, but leaving behind a tidal wave of water. (I had filled that whole top blue part and it was completely empty.) There was about half an inch of water in the bottom crispers, a quarter inch in the top one, the shelves & bottom of the frig were standing in water, and even the bottom door shelf was splattered. [This picture was taken later so you could imagine the scene--no time for photos. If I had stopped moving I would have become totally overwhelmed.]
I stood there.
Surveying the damage.
Knowing the stooping and bending ahead of me...I almost cried.
But there was little point in that.
I shut the frig door and went to get some towels.
I needed to take a bite out of this job quickly...and start planning how to break it up into short time sessions...before it got the better of me, you know.
The water wasn't going anywhere.
It would wait for me.
I unexpectedly cleaned over half my frig yesterday--LOL!
Here's my drying potatoes...
...and onions (had to peel the soggy onions skins off).
More purging was done, though--LOL!
I am soooo glad that Caroline is coming back tomorrow! (We decided on her coming two weeks in a row so we could get back to the regular schedule.) Maybe she could see if there's a tray to pull out under the frig. I couldn't get down and under there myself. And I have my little green cart filled with three purging trash bags that would be awfully heavy for me to lift up into the dumpster right now. [In fact, just walking to the dumpster sounds like a challenge at this moment. I never even got the mail from Saturday yet.] There are always blessings. Caroline has never come over two weeks in a row. Perfect timing! :)
But--this is it for me today...and for the immediate future. I'll be away from blogland for a few more days. I'll have to catch up when I am more functional. I didn't sleep much at all last night. I shall hobble through the day and take it very, very easy...maybe even take a nap. I promise.
Be back in a few days. :)
See yesterday's quote--LOL!
Even more appropriate today. ;)
