The last week or so has been silent on the site because the fiancee and I have been upside-down trying to get working appliances in the house while tackling our first few DIY projects at the same time.
To save cash, we ordered our range and refrigerator from the local Sears Outlet. And I’m going to preface this by saying that we’ve heard nothing but good things about the Outlet; but let’s just say that all did not go smoothly. One replacement range, one new 3-prong outlet and one month later, we can finally cook dinner instead of eating out almost every night.
We still have issues with our refrigerator (the digital display was DOA) but it keeps food cold and we’re in no rush to call the Sears repair line yet again.
The last month or so has been super stressful and the dreary winter weather is just making it worse. I’m ready for spring, for landscaping the new place, BBQs and lounging in the sun.
This weekend we got a little taste of it, but for now I think I’ll just have to keep myself inspired with photos like these:
