I can't complain...

...about the weather. It saved us from certain disaster this weekend. We started noticing some not so good things when we would take our food out of the fridge. Our drinks were not cold, we had warm milk for our cereal (the worst!), and our butter was spreadable straight from the fridge (which isn't necessarily a bad thing). Our fridge was on the fritz. But fortunately for us Mother Nature brought us snow, which, just hours earlier, I was cursing her for being so mean teasing us with the idea of Spring! But she must have known the Jensens were going to need a little extra help. Amazing how things "work out" isn't it? So we packed our food in coolers and buried the rest in the snow. Kind of a pain to go outside and dig for my food, but hey, at least we didn't have to throw anything away right?
Trent, being the amazing man that he is, fixed our fridge yesterday. Just add that to his list of skills: Refrigerator Repair Man. What would I do without him?
And to make everything even better, seeing how my fridge was empty and warm, it was a great time to give it a good cleaning. There are few things better than a clean fridge my friends! So here is to ice cold sodas, good cereal, and hardened butter!

Does it never end at your house? Honestly, I think you should get a pass in life since you have your hands so full with kiddos. But I guess you guys are cut out for whatever comes your way. And kuddos for a clean fridge!

Smart thinking. I wouldn't have thought of that. After our last baby was born we ran out of room in the fridge from all the meals people were bringing so we just stacked them in the garage(it was winter), we thought that was smart, but we didn't even think of the snow.

I guess I know who I have to blame for the bad weather! You are countering all of my efforts for the snow to stop!

I am seriously always amazed at everything Trent can do. You should keep track of all the money you save not having to make service calls.

You truly do it all! Why don't you get away from the snow and come to St. George this weekend!?

Alyssa said...

Oh the things we take for granted right? Aren't you glad it didn't go out the week before when the weather was so nice? Thanks for the reminder that I need to clean my fridge... it looks so nice! :)

Hey, is that Frog Eye salad I see???

Sarah said...

Ok, this sounds like the one time snow is good. Nice save!

How do you get your collages to work the way you do (different shapes, etc)? I saw you used Picassa and I can only get the square grids like on my recent post. I love how yours turn out and Picassa is SO much easier to use than Photoshop!

That is the best! You have a way with your words. I love that mother nature took care of you. I can't believe your hubby is so handy that he fixed your fridge. That's awesome. And a clean fridge-what a joy! It does "work out" just right sometimes.

I love how your vegetable bins are full of pop!! Too funny! Trent is seriously amazing. Is there a home repair he CAN'T do??
