Yolky Slip n' Slide

Growing in Theory:

Fix refrigerator door with duck tape.

Growing in Reality:

Our fridge was a hand me down to begin with and we were grateful for it. It gets just cold enough to keep the food from spoiling. Our raw milk we purchase has to go in a mini fridge in the garage, because our big fridge won't go below 39*.

Haha, as I typed this, I thought- frugal my hiney- I have an entire fridge hooked up for our is that saving money?! I'm seriously thinking of digging a hole in the back yard and going to see if that's cold enough :) I wonder if the old school way of doing it would be cheaper and just put an ice block in the fridge.....hmmm

Anyway, that's beside the point. The door slots that hold condiments plop all the condiments out as they wiggle out of place. Eventually despite many failed attempts they were beyond repair. Today as I stocked the fridge with groceries- I sigh as there just isn't enough room with all the condiments. I considered putting them in the garage...but realized I would only find them on the counter after each use- who am I kidding that my family will walk all the way to the garage to put it away? And then there is the problem of the child lock on the door.

So I'm going to settle this matter. I take everything out of the fridge- shove it to the dumpster and hop in the car to sears appliance. Just kidding.

I propped open the door and headed to the garage for some duck tape. No luck, so I head to the office. I found about a foot left of hot pink duck tape, string and packaging tape. We shall make do.

Back to the kitchen. Zeke is covered in raw eggs and is gleefully sliding across the floor on his new egg drop slip in slide. Timmi has scattered the groceries across the kitchen, putting things away in various cabinets, shelves and some in the freezer.

There is never a simple task in this home.  I sighed as I settled on using the string for repairs and winced as I opted to allow the chaos to continue so I could finish my task at hand. Motherhood indeed builds patience.

For you have need of steadfast patience and endurance, so that you may perform and fully accomplish the will of God, and thus receive and carry away [and enjoy to the full] what is promised.Hebrews 10: 36
