I posted a couple of years ago about my struggle to find the perfect refrigerator for my kitchen. I love the Maytag I bought, but if I had it to do over, I would not have chosen it. The Whirlpool in my mother-in-law's home is older, better, and has the best ice maker. Furthermore, because of her failing health, she now lives with us and our "perfect refrigerator for two people" is too small.
To give us more cold storage, we bought a new upright freezer for the garage, replacing our tiny chest model, and all is well with the world again. But the moral of the story is no matter how you try to plan for every eventuality, you can't. Just buy what you want at the time and adjust with the changes life brings you.
Speaking of adjusting to the changes life brings you, have you noticed I've been MIA on my blog and the writing scene in general? I'm slowly resuming my writing career, and I am loving my new publisher, Salt Run Publishing. But it will be a year before you see my next book in print.
I still publish a monthly newsletter, and I invite you to subscribe if you haven't already.
Have a super summer! And may your ice maker keep up with your iced tea demands. ;-)
