Seriously!?!


Yesterday I was going through the months budget and realized that we had a bit more money left than I had expected. Well wouldn't you know that today that and the money that we were planning on using for a fence just went sailing out the window.

I got home earlier and James told me that our freezer and fridge wasn't working. He checked the compressor and found out that the relay was bad. Apparently Whirlpools made in 2003 have a problem with their relays burning out. There are whole forums of people out there that are having the problem this month, crazy! He replaced the relay and started the fridge up again, but apparently it had already damaged the compressor, awesome...

So anyways a trip to Lowe's was in order. We got a nice new one, and for the heck of it, while already shelling out my firstborn and a leg, I am getting the microwave replaced. I am tired of having to use a microwave on the counter instead of the great invention of one over the stove.

So yeah, I think I will stick to not looking at the budget and getting excited for a little extra, each time I do, something goes wrong.............

I am sorry to hear that. It is so frustrating! If it helps, I feel your pain :( I am extremely tired of stuff breaking when it shouldn't. I had to replace the motor in my dryer after only a year and a half and now my dishwasher had issues this week. Argh! Things aren't made to last very long anymore. I think its a conspiracy. I hope things will get better for you very soon.

Tammie, this is a picture of the one I got. I liked the French door one, but it cost $700 more and I couldn't justify that as a need.
