It was a ‘play it by ear’ kind of Saturday.
Two Fridays ago, I noticed a build up of water in the bottom of the veggie crisper of our 13 year old fridge. I thought it was just a build up due to high humidity but it kept on over the weekend. We originally bought an extended service plan for 5 years on the unit, after which, I purchased a 2 year service plan directly from GE after the 5 years extended service lapsed. For the 7 years that we had service protection in place, the fridge performed seamlessly so we just cruised along without any service protection on the subsequent years. In fact, for 13 years we had no problems with the fridge. But things get old, and they eventually need replacement.
Husband and I agreed that it was time to get a new one while it’s not yet totally ‘dead’. Hence, the Monday of the previous week, I went refrigerator shopping alone. I was glad that I found the model that I wanted at the first store that I went to. I had the chance to schedule the delivery for Tuesday (the following day after I went shopping) but I didn’t want to deal with it alone so I waited for Saturday.
That’s why our Saturday was a ‘play it by ear’ kind of day strenghtened by the fact that when I got the call re:delivery confirmation last Friday, I was told that the delivery time would be between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The delivery guy called at 9:00 a.m. to inform us that they were on their way, and we should expect the delivery 30 minutes later. Was that lucky?!
We didn’t talk about heading out until after we were done with the arduous task of putting everything in place. There was no other destination in mind but Long Island. So off we went.
We stopped by one place briefly, and then we headed to Mass at one of our preferred Church on Long Island.
Dinner was at Tobiko. It was another gastronomic feast for us 🙂 .
