Our neverending disaster of a fridge is finally GONE! They bought us a BRAND NEW fridge!!!!! We are so so sooOOOOO happy! It actually has 2 compartments for the freezer and the fridge and it is WAY bigger- the freezer especially. It has special things like a little drawer for cheese and stuff. It just looks great, has normal knobs on the inside to adjust if needs be- the freezer doesn't form ice on the sides to completely ruin everything- it's not HORRIBLY loud! It's heaven! I keep looking over at it. It's just so beautiful. Really, it is. I now love our apartment again. Ah:) By the way- you will look at it and think- they have like no food. Well, believe it or not, the amount in our freezer, completely FILLED our previous freezer box, and I haven't been grocery shopping in a while because all our food was spoiling in our fridge, go figure, and so I didn't want to keep buying food for it to go bad. Trust me- we eat. Okay? I just had to share!

I love the whiteness of it. And how non-anciet/golden looking it is.

Another GREAT thing that has happened- Clay made dinner Monday AND Tuesday! That is a record! Monday he made chili burritos (heated chili and placed it in soft tortillas- simple, but good:)), Tuesday he impressed me by making Italian beef Calzones (don't know the proper spelling. They were way good! I was way proud of him. He looked up the recipe all by himself on the internet, went to the store and got the ingredients and made it ALL ON HIS OWN! Awesome huh? Such a sweety. It is so wierd having this role reversal deal here. Usually he is the one working and I am the one impressing him with meals. We talked about that last night during dinner and both thought it was different, but felt like the right thing at the time.

School, thank goodness, is going by pretty quickly. It is almost midterms! I can't tell you how happy I'll be when this semester is over. I will have an entire 6-7 week break with NO SCHOOL! Oh, it will be bliss. It is especially hard going to school and working. I know I've only been doing it for 3 days, so it will most likely get better, but right now I am struggling. I am used to going to school, working hard on homework and then having time to rest and do what I want. NOW- I go to school, go to work, eat, am exhausted, and have to force myself to do homework. Then, of course, as you can tell and are probably thinking, I "make" time to do what I want, like blogging, when in reality- I need to be doing homework. I still have tons more. Oh well. I've decided to look at life like this: do what I need to, to keep myself sane. Also, I've decided that school, though important, is NOT everything. I can't count how many times my teachers have told me this semester that Accounting really doesn't matter. It's not important. I know that, but you know- it's hard not to get all caught up in school making it your life. I decided that I need to live a life, with school in it. Not live a life of school. Does that make sense? I am just dreaming of my graduation day. I will probably cry. Of happiness. Not one note of sadness, I can assure you.

Alright- love you all!

I am so happy for you. What a lovely new fridge. It should keep your food nice and fresh for you. I agree with you that school is not everything. but I know that you always try to do your best which is a good thing. Take care and have a great week. I told you that Clayton could cook if he put his mind to it. When he was young he wanted to grow up to be a chef. He liked to cook in the kitchen especially about the age of 9-10 yrs old. Love you guys, bye now.

Wonderful!!! I am so glad for you and I am thankful you finally got it and you deserve to have a decent fridge. You pay your rent after all. You are right about school, you need to have a life with school in, not a life on hold waiting for school to be over. I know it must be hard to get to work and to school, I hated working for 8 or 9 hours a day, when I worked after I was 50. I don't know what I would have done if I had to go to school also. You are lucky to have a guy to cook:) Love grandma

I am so happy you got a fridge. I wish we had a new fridge. And yes, school is important- but not everything. I can't believe you always cook- that would stink! But I'm just used to Greggy cooking the most. Way more than me! I love you! So excited to see you!

YEA!!!!!!!! Your fridge looks wonderful. Your dad told me from his office and I said, their landlord finally got a heart.

I hope the working thing gets easier. That is cool about Clay cooking. I am very impressed.

I am glad you blog.

I love you!!!!

Reading what you have to say about your fridge makes it sound like you guys just won the lottery. Its too bad that el cheapo landlord of yours didn't do it sooner. But, at least you have it now. I think this is the first time I have ever congratulated somebody on getting a new fridge.
Love, Dad
