The fridge that just keeps dying

Let's say you wake up to a dead fridge. What do you check to see if you can save first?

French fries
Sirloin steak
Icecream sandwiches
Pound of bacon
An 8-month old tray of portioned baby food

Ya, that's right. You know what happened to our fridge yesterday. Woke up at the usual time, got my coffee etc, then the bleariness cleared and I noticed the freezer reading 37F and the fridge was at 46F. Silly me for thinking that our 7 month nightmare was over just because we had a few months without anything going wrong with it!

Luckily hubby had kept the board they replaced one of the previous times they were in to fix something...acutally, funny that our other problems were that the fridge was too cold, now it was too damn hot! Sadly, that got them off the hook for replacing the fridge (3 major component replacements = new appliance, but maybe that's a good thing, since we know how hard it is for them to deliver a working, non-dented appliance to us)

We've found the daycare/pre-school V is going to attend. She starts the first of October. I'm totally amazed at how lucky we are to get a spot with them too. We just happened to contact them at a time where they were reviewed by the government agency that looks after these things (and they scored a perfect 100 - only place to do so) and they were just granted 10 new spots! They were in the process of taking applications, and voila! I'm so excited for her.

In other news, news of the baby TMI variety, we've started really working on potty training. She's been using the potty since last August or so. We noticed that she generally didn't wet through the night, so would rush her on to it in the morning to get her used to it, more of a casual approach to it. This year hubby's been working with her more, being proactive and within the last week she's started wearing undies rather than a diaper during the day, with very few mishaps. Hopefully we'll stay on top of it and have her fully PL'd in no time.
